Parking

Still looking for a place front range to park a toyota truck and 12' box trailer for the weeks of July 17th through the 30th. Coming out for the rally but want to ride some beforehand. Have one taker for a place farther west, but would like to minimize the truck time and maximize the bike time.

PM me if you can help.


Cheers Rob

Trailer Parking in NM?

Driving up to RMAR in my Sportsmobile with a trailer and two bikes in tow. I am actually flying back home for a week between RMAR and Westfest. My wife will be joining me for Westfest. I plan on parking my van at the Santa Fe airport for the week in between but am looking for a safe place to park the bike trailer for a week in New Mexico, Taos or Santa Fe would be preferred. It is a small three rail trailer and will have a DR200 and a XR650R tied down to it. Certainly willing to compensate with cash, food or good whisk(e)y or barley pops.

Wilson Mesa Trail is one of my favorite single tracks in the area, more towards the Telluride side, tho...

East Fork near the top of Lizard Head Pass, heading back to Bolam/Durango Mtn Resort is a good one. Pole Creek and Lost Creek (sp?) just over Stoney Pass are the two main ones on that side (I haven't ridden them yet..but look good). Calico Trail outside Rico is an epic one, but a decent ass kicker. There are also a few other good ones around Hermosa Park..

Question Forest Closure.....

Today the wife and I were going to take a walk with the dogs in the Santa Fe Natl. Forest. We found that the DOT had closed off the road and would not allow anybody up the hill, due to the extreme fire danger.

So my question about our event is....... Is this still a go or sorta touch-n-go concerning riding in Colorado?

The central southwest ( Colorado)part of the rockies, where Silverton is located, seems to stay moderately wet. I the last 25 years we have visited, it has always been very green, with rain plenty fullness. That said, anything can happen.

Steve, this is happening when we get our "monsoon" season, which is usually light afternoon showers. We have already been starting to get a little moisture, which has been very welcome. I don't think there will be any problems, more like pack a rain coat if you are going all day and watch out being in high places in the afternoon!

I saw online where there are some closures around the Owl Creek Pass area. We planned on running up that way before the rally, but I don't know enough of the land marks to know what is closed and what is not. Stuff like from road 853 to Court House rock... Doesn't mean anything to me. Would it be best to just stay out of this area and go another way? I mean there are plenty of great roads in the area...

There had been a fire over there, but not big. A lot can change in the next few weeks if we start to get our traditional afternoon showers. Like you said, lots of great roads if that is still closed, but I think chances are good it will be back to safer fire conditions soon!

Yeah, I do recall last year's ride in the mountains. Everybody was soaked at one point due to the rain coming down. The trails quickly became slicker-n-snot......
