    Thanks, sorry I didn't see this post sooner.

    What fall season, seems we skipped right to winter didn't we? Well, we did have an indian summer there for a week :biggrin:

    Wierd year weather wise, that's for sure. Summer wasn't as hot and it seemed like it rained every afternoon.

    I'm riding every chance I get though. Ran up hwy 85 to Cheyenne yesterday. That's an awesome ride between Nunn and the border. Kind of like a scene out of Mad Max with the wide open curvy road with little to no cars.

    Can't wait to meet up on a ride with a couple of you guys. I don't know anyone else who rides around here and I feel left out when I cruise thru the foothills and see a pack of bikes go by!

    Hey guys. I'm checking in to be added to the list of Denver VFR'ers. Moved here from UT over the summer and would love to hook-up with some fellow VFR riders in CO. I live in SW Parker. Keep me in mind when you all start group riding again.

    What do we have to do to get an above average day around here?

    I'm still riding every chance I can but all that sand on the road sure takes a lot of the fun out of it.

    Yep, I've completely given up. The few good days that do come along are too close to all the crappers, so that even when the roads are dry, they're still slick as whale shit in an ice flow. Hopefully March we'll start to see some improvement.

    Nope. I went for Candy Apple Red. (Only found 2 out of 13 dealers) It's beautiful, like Jessica Simpson in Dukes of Hazard.HA! And got a blowout deal from out of state. Anyway, I'm new to boards like I am to Facebook. I'd like to keep in touch cause I know I'll have question about things like HeliBars, Seargent vs Corbin and pipes ect... Thanks for making me feel welcome havcar!!

    Got out this past weekend for a out and back from Denver to Palmer Lake. A great day, and it was long overdue. The roads were in good condition, but I am looking forward to spring and getting back to the high country.

    Well fellas, I finally managed to get out for a legit ride today. I was riding the little canyon between Morrison and Evergereen which was pretty sandy. I stopped for gas and a guy on a CBR told me that the Deckers ride (the one we went on last season) was clean. So I went it did it. Sure enoough everything was good and was able to ride as hard as new season comfort allowed for. A little sand about a mile before that convenience area but nothing bad. In fact there were several riders there who all said that they had been taking that route for most of the winter without many issues. So hopefully we'll all be able to get togather for a ride sooner rather than later.

    Cheers!

    Bikes stayed in the garage yesterday and we took the horses out to the Pawnee grass land.

    Glad to hear you had a good ride!

    Morrison to Englewood is the one that goes past Red Rocks right?

    Yeah, there is decent ride that goes by the main gate to Red Rocks and then once you're in Morrison you go right (west bound) through a great canyon that goes up to Evergreen and all the way through to Conifer. Good tight corners (many are blind so not much passing) and pretty good scenery. Then once you get to Pine Junction and head south into Deckers it's great scenery and mixed types of cornering, probably one of the better one day rides that CO. has to offer, and fast as you want. Police presence is little to none and if you do see one, they seldom harrass.

    Yeah Brother, you know I'm over on the west side, close to Morrison, so I'll keep you guys posted as I see conditions getting better. Keep your eyes peeled for the conditions down south too. I'm always up for some Peak to Peak and/or Estes Park area.

    Good Morning Fella's, Please COUNT ME IN for the next ride!! I tried a new route that I had never done from Sedalia to Deckers last weekend and thought the road was paved the whole way. WRONG! About 3 miles of gravel/forest road that descended 2 pretty good hills down to the South Platte river. Those hills got my attention...! Anyway, still a pretty good day at 160 miles. So I'm up for a ride and really look forward to meeting you all. I also hope to have my new Heli-Bars on by then. Anyway, Drop me a note and lets fire 'em up!

    Ride Safe!!

    I'm up for anywhere, peak to peak highway maybe?

    Hey Herc, a few guys in our group last year managed to find the same dirt road. If you havn't already, try doing the road from Woodland Park to Deckers, it's one of the best rides in the state IMO.

    Well I hope to have my VFR running today. Still have weeks of bodywork to complete. Right now, the only rideable wheels I have is the Shadow and havcar won't be seen with cruisers :biggrin:
