Bluedragon --- your on your own man. I woke up this am to about an inch of that Sierra Cemment! One of these days I'll make it down to meet/ride with you guys in Denver (I'm in Vail) but until late May I'll try to avoid going over the passes (too much gravel still being slung off tires until then and I sure as hell don't want to replace another headlight lens on my Mille like I did last year 2 months after I bought the bike!). Otherwise the roads in the lower valleys are in good condition. Ironically it's the tires of the sportbikes in front of me that sling up most of that gravel - NOT so much the cars & trucks. Are you a member of the Colorado Sportbike Club? Got ta go. Getting ready for a much needed vaction to Las Vegas - been a long, hard Winter

Damn...3 good rides in a row..I was just getting back into the groove..Now it snows...damn it..

You're not hallucinating...Sportbike tires DO sling more gravel and sand than cars...one, we all chop our rear fenders...and two, the tires are VERY soft compared to car tires..

Since when did you let the temp stop you Blue from riding. Remember that one time you, Longrider and I went for that butt-crack of dawn ride down to the Springs where it felt like 30 degrees below zero. We were frozen by the time we got to Pasta's house. I felt like that scene from Dumb and Dumber where they got off the little moped frozen. /images/icons/laugh.gif/images/icons/laugh.gif/images/icons/laugh.gif/images/icons/laugh.gif/images/icons/laugh.gif/images/icons/laugh.gif/images/icons/laugh.gif/images/icons/laugh.gif/images/icons/laugh.gif

What are you saying? You can't do stoppies and wheelies in the snow. Amateur. Just Kidding! I couldn't do that stuff in dry payment if I tried! /images/icons/wink.gif

I did. /images/icons/tongue.gif ... /images/icons/wink.gif

Only because last year was so crazy with gravel on the roads in the spring. I didn't want a repeat of last year. But it looks like the roads are starting to clear up. I'm gonna start a new thread. We need to get some chat going on road conditions.

I miss living 5 minutes from the Front Range canyons... but I don't miss Denver.
