This place is a ghost town most often. Kinda discouraging.

I'm down in Montrose. Down for a meet up somewhere in between sometime.

Make sure you make the western V-Strom meet in Silverton this Summer!

new Vstrom rider in Morrison, CO

Don't spend much time on the forums. Riding only couple years. Picked up a 2012 650 ABS last fall. Put on 3000 miles, then winter hit.
Not many miles on the dirt yet. Picked up a WR250R to learn to ride off road so I can handle the Vstrom better. V is a bit heavy for learning off road.
Will be spending more time on the bikes again now that we're getting breaks between the snow falls.

I was going to be heading over that way for a wedding (unfortunately can't quite justify the trip now). My cunning plan was to hire a bike for a day and head up Pike's Peak... My kind of cruise!

We'lll have to meet up sometime this summer. Are you going to the Western V-Strom gathering in Silverton?


You wouldn't happen to have a "hook-up" to the Red Rocks Ampitheatre would you?

Here in Denver

Hello, I'm here. I'd be happy to meet up for rides sometime. Weather is getting there. Been out a few times over the winter. I'm right in Denver, so front range is my local area.

Anyone up for a Meet up for a ride?

I am getting the riding bug between snow falls. Anyone on this thread interested in a meet up somewhere and a ride on dry asphalt? I am out near Morrison but would be willing to meet elsewhere. There are lots of canyons out this way.
I am only semi-retired so I am trying not to work Fridays. Weekends are usually good, and with enough notice I could make any day work.
I've been working on lowering my WR250R so I that can get a bit of boot on the ground, so my Vstrom is feeling a bit neglected.

PS. No hook ups to Red Rocks but in summer I can sometimes hear the concerts from my deck. (I'm south of The Fort Restaurant)
PSS. I've never ridden up Pikes Peak, but that sounds like a great ride.... when the weather is a bit warmer.
PSSS. I am working on filling up my summer schedule, and am trying to fit the VStrom gathering onto the calendar. (18,19,20 July) If that works, maybe a group ride would be in order.

Jim

I live about 320 miles north of you in Gillette. I hope to make a few trips down into Colorado to visit the roads and some friends (Estes Park, Leadville, Avon, etc) this summer. I will let you know if I head down there!
