Sure is quiet around here.....

So. It's getting to be that time of year, ya know.....

Time for STEAK!!!!!

ANNUAL WINTER STEAK MEAT MEET

No idea when I will be able to go though. That's why I have not brought it up. Baby will be born on Feb 5th (or before). We might be able to get out later in Feb....or March sometime. What's the consensus??

Venue: The Lodge at Wilderness Ridge

Time: TBD

Attendees: ALL ARE INVITED!!!! EVEN THE NEW GUY!!!!

GUESTS OF HONOR: Zoid and his SCOOTER MOMMA!
(maybe I should talk to them first....nah )

This is all dependent upon what my lovely wife has to say about it. The good thing is, she is dying for a stiff drink after a rough pregnancy.

Please discuss freely, and let me know what you all think!

In x1 or x2, depending upon the date and if the Mrs. is out of town on business.

Hey guys, semi lurker here. Has anyone made a ride from Omaha to Colorado(ish). I'm looking to take a weeklong ride next summer when my brother gets back from the sandbox. He just bought a Harley so we figured we would go on a nice ride. Any good routes/suggestions would be much appreciated. We will be mostly camping and maybe stay in a hotel one night in Denver. Thanks in advance!

Rode to CO last summer for the Pikes Peak Hill Climb. However, didn't go directly to C. Springs, but took 34 west to Loveland and then went through Rocky Mtn. Nat'l Park.

Have ridden to and through CO many times, as I'm sure many others here have. They'll share some good routes also.

Stay off of I80, you'll spend more time on the road but enjoy it much more.

+1 on 34 to Loveland area. decent road, not incredibly scenic, but sane traffic. pretty speedy, really....

Yeah, anything is better than 80. US 34 is good. I actually took NE Hwy 23 on the way back from CO last summer. Hits 34 at Holdredge and kinda parallels 80 west of there. Nothing twisty or anything, but interesting farm country and almost no traffic. I was moving right along

short notice, but if anyone wants to be my trials "guest" saturday I'll be at the Rock Riders Quarry from mid-morning to about 4pm. I can meet you at the gate and I'll have my Beta and a TTR125 playbike you're welcome to crash. I can only host one rider at a time, but if you don't have cable and need to get out of the house bug me on my cel 4024059723. again, it's really short notice, but I'll be there making an ass of myself anyway. Tim

full face vs open face

while open face helmets help promote a healthy, mocking smile, full face helps conceal frowns and muffle swearing. In trials, there are distinct advantages to both.

Colorado / Hotel
After my last trip to Colorado, and what happened to flyrodder and I, I wouldn't stay in a hotel in the city. Small town hotel, sure. Motorcycles are just too easy to rip off, even if on a trailer hooked to an F250


Route
I would just pic the small roads through rural Nebraska in the general way you want to go. Eat at small town cafe's and camp at lakes or state parks. I would also stay North of Denver, unless you are heading well into the mountains. Ft. Collins is a fun town! Lots of good beer there, and the tour at New Belgium is good (schedule ahead of time online). The tap room at Odell Brewery is great! You will want to either walk, or take a cab if you go to either though
