Re: Ouray CO end of June

That is such amazing country, had a fantastic time last year when RG took me on a few killer rides all around the area. Trying to get the big boss to rent a house in Purgatory again this year, hoping in the September time frame. This time I have the Husky and the AT.

Let us know if all the passes are clear, have had problems in June on a prior trip. And have a steak and bourbon at the Outlaw for me.

Re: Ouray CO end of June

I just fit this in when I could on short notice, but not a bad time frame. I suspect some snow blockage up high at times.

Webnel - I'm sure you know what you're getting yourself into...only some of the best riding on two wheels! Enjoy it.

July 2016, when the big bikes came to town:

We'll be heading there right after you July 5-9.

As was mentioned a report on if everything is clear would be awesome!

Is this your first trip with the Honda in Colorado? If so it would be great to hear how she did out there for you.

It'll be my first time one the 250 Rally. Been there with a CRF450X and xr650l before.

Here's a vid of the last visit. https://youtu.be/rNVTKPXZ_8U

Let us know how the Honda Rally works out for you on the trails. Be good to see a ride report on how she handles Colorado. Love the video.

I was in Lake City day before yesterday and Cinnamon is already open but muddy. LOTS of snow still up there. It may be a while before Engineers is open.

Re: Ouray CO end of June

A few of us are headed to Gunnison for the Geico adventure ride thingy in mid July. By all accounts it's supposed to be a hoot. We'll see... my track record with big organized rides is somewhat checkered.

Picking up the BDR ride after that. CO, UT, ID, MT, WY and back to CO.

If y'all pass through Lake City, be sure to stop by the funnel cake place and say howdy to the owner. He's a great off-road guy who knows TWT.
