2015 Colorado/Western Rally

Great rally ideas in other threads!

Anyone have interest in the West this summer? Mid-late July.

No pre conceived notions other than that.

Any Kansas members or Okies wanna come out this way? Anyone else from the Midwest, Wyoming, Cali boys, other Coloradans, TX, well heck let's put out a call for all states.

Had some good riding in Colorado last July. A ride to the top of Pikes Peak, explored Bishops Castle as the two ride highlights. Lots more to see in this great state.

Let's keep the responses coming!



-rdmcguy, Springtime ride would be great! Maybe "early summer" (mid-may) before I have a clear day on a weekend.

Hi Bonz,
Pikes Peak is on my bucket list. However Colorado is too far for a week end ride for me Maybe another year.

Talking Exrended weekend

Hey Phil.
There's no rules on how long you can stay..
Me and the local boys could tell you some places you would enjoy and I for one could join in on at least some of them...

Already got a couple long trips planned for this year. Pretty much gobbles up all my vacation time.

Maybe if it was over the weekend of the 4th I MIGHT be able to squeeze a 4 day weekend in with the holiday Friday.

I'm interested, depending on work schedule.
Had a great time last year, and it was sure nice to finally meet so many I had talked to here for so long!

Getting ready to bid a commercial job. If I get it, probably can't make this one. If I don't.... may have free time!
We'll have to see how it goes, I guess.

Looks like initial interest from "afar" is not there so far...

Please respond if you have been lurking! A good 8-10 guys does a rally make, and a lot of fun to boot.

Did the 'traveling ' rally today............3/4's way into June STeed rally in Ouray,CO.(80 plus at this point, commited and confirmed), July, good chance SWMBO and I may 'cage' it up thru Tetons/ YellowstonePk.

With that, no commitment here.

Geez Brant, you belong to another forum too? I feel like the 3rd grade girl with pigtails I chased around when I was a kid is cheating on me with a second grader...

Let's just say I don't have NEAR as deep pockets as majority of them folks attending......but thought I'd be a good sport and give it the ole' 'second grade' try.......once anyways:rolleyes........Dean R. has volunteered me as his personnel tour guide, as he'll be room/boarding here couple days prior to our shared two tent site. By then, least we won't be dealing with conditions mother nature threw at Bob, John, Tod and Greg the other day.
It'll be a 'spur of the moment ' decision if I do, as that's the 'way I roll' when it comes to scoot riding. If it's a 'planned' trip......cage gets the duty.
Retired and tired, figure that's the LEAST I owe myself.......general direction is close enough.....rest is by chance.......never knowing EXACTLY the destination route has its unexpected rewards. That's what being on two wheels LD riding has always meant for me.....and has worked decades keeping the fun factor mixed in with a bit of the unknown.
