I LOVE COLORADO!

I will never forget riding in for UN I to Gunnison. There is something so magical about Colorado. My very first motorcycle trip was on my Sportster to Canon City, CO for a woman's motorcycle conference. As I rode out Hwy 50, and saw the mountains for the first time in my life, I had to pull over and cry. They moved me so.

The trip on the Sportster was amazing and memorable, but it was nothing like what I found in Gunnison. The gathering of the people from this board was a bonus I never imagined. Lifelong friendships were formed. I am looking forward to hugging old and new friends.

I'm so excited! clap

We will be there all week. Looking forward to seeing everyone, having some great rides and getting some fishing in on the Arkansas.

We used to go skiing in the Dillon area every year for spring break when our kids were younger and living at home. I always wanted to go out there during the summer. I'm really looking forward to this trip. I'm hoping to go up to our Upper Peninsula and take US-2 over to Montana, and then down to Colorado.

As I recall, the remnants of a cold, a 1/2 can of a power drink and 113 degrees in Nebraska almost undid me mad ( I chose the emoticon that most closely resembled my skin color at the time grin ) Those were some FUN times, Mr. Roe. Thanks for escorting our little entourage into the wilds of Colorado before dawn. I will never forget your wheelie somewhere along I 76 grin

Just thinking out loud hereÖ

Fact 1. The official Rally days are Tuesday Ė Thursday and that could leave couple of days on each side of the Rally if one takes that whole weak off.
Fact 2. Colorado and the areas close to Salida have some amazing off-road routes & trails.

=> Iím just starting the planning here so everything is totally open at this point but I might explore some of the passes in the area between Aspen and Crested Butte on my way to Salida.

=> And maybe do a day or two more of dirt riding around the Ouray area on the way out.

I need to do much more planning but Iíll just throw this seed out there in case it takes root and turns into something real.
Anyone wants to join, give suggestions, or simply tell me not to do it, I want to hear it all.

David and I will be there probably from Sunday to Friday, I'm sure he will be up for an off road adventure sometime during the week for sure? Depending on Lawnchair boy, I think I will get to ride shotgun for the off road adventure part. Will be on my own bike for the paved stuff! clap

Susan and I will be headed there from the MOA. Using the Butler Map and a Colorado Rides book to really plan. Took Susan up Phantom Canyon back in the early 80's by Jeep. Really beautiful dirt road.
