This is our first Rockies Gold event. Will there be some two up riders?
Usually several two up participants, including my wife and I. (y) Looking forward to meeting you!

For any airplane lovers coming out to RG, the Montrose Airport will once again be hosting their Tribute to Aviation on the 18th and 19th. Lots of really neat aircraft on display and it's absolutely free! Some of the "big guns" will include a B-52, a C-17, a C-130, a F-18, a A-10 Warthog, KC-46, KC-135c and many others. This will all be staged at the Montrose Airport. Here's a link for more info. Aircraft - Tribute to Aviation

Wow, and here I thought Montrose airport was nothing more than a small private plane airport with maybe 1 runway with backtracking on it to get off once the pilot lands.

I wont be attending this year, nomatter how much I wanted and planned to.

My roof is leaking and we are putting a new roof on this weekend. I went on a 7 day trip down to florida a few weeks back and I wasnt able to find a reliable house sitter other than my mother and now she will be gone for the upcoming week.

One of my good buddies is competing in a demo derby this weekend so it's not all bad. Will still get some excitement. Not nearly as much as you old timers provide but oh well😄😎

See you cats next year.

Played with Nebraska today, had enough by Sterling CO. We’ll check out independance pass tomorrow on the way. Only 400 tired miles. Sad. But, there were a few road construction zones. You know 40 in a 55 zone for 10-15 miles types of places.

Ssncob, 3 Eagles, HondaHawk and I have been in the area since Monday. The road closures of US-50 and US-550 are hampering some of the routes, but there are still too many fabulous roads to ride them all. We met 1096Dad and Jeanette today, and they gave us some good routes.

One thing I haven't seen much of yet is color change in the Aspens. If you know where to see a lot of color, give me a shout!

Edit for clarification- We came in from Denver on US 285 South to US-50. We did see SOME some color change at the higher elevations, but no huge forests of gold, orange, and yellow.

Yes. We hit it again today after riding Highway 92 past Black Canyon. GREAT ride, btw! Both times we lost 45 minutes to an hour to get through after the official 5:30 opening time.

Two riders from UT will be searching you out for info on pairing their helmets and communication systems between each other. They would be Bobby Coburn and El Padre.
Go easy on them lol...
No problem BUT leaving on a ride 0700, not back till around 1900 Thursday. I'm sure there'll be someone around to help, otherwise I'm in room 105. Or on this...

Arrived today with 5 friends. We left Cortez this morning. Our 4th day on the road.
Took Hwy 145 to Teluride, rode the Gondolas, then took the 62 to the 550. Completely bypassed the closed portion of the 550.
Not my first time to Colorado. However my first time to Rockies Gold. Looking forward to meeting you guys. In room 205. Look for a Gray-Black 2016 with a added trunk on the back.
