666 - Coronado Trail

I'll be heading to the infamous route 191 on Sunday June 9th with a friend of mine from California. He'll be on his way to Chicago so I will only be joining him for 2 days up to Ouray, Colorado. It's going to be a 3 day loop for me stopping at Farmington, NM on the way up and Springerville, AZ on the way down. Splitting the cost of a hotel helps keep the expenses down. If anyone cares to join us let me know. We'll be on street bikes so it'll be all pavement. Should be a good time.

Here's the planned route.

Late notice

Not enough notice for me to try and get three days off. All of this area is where I used to live. If I could have gone I have a house in Farmington that would have saved a motel stay. Great route. Have fun. If you had a hair on your ass you would be riding with us Saturday night...

Julio,

I need to take a week off riding but this would be a great trip. You can't beat the Ouray area for great roads and scenery

Mike,

Do you have a ride in mind??? I wasn't planning on riding this weekend but if you don't get any takers I might change my mind.

Any of you V-Strom guys want to trade windshields? I've got a Moose Adventure windshield that isn't working out for me on the freeway, it's taller than stock and looks like this (I think this is it?):

Assuming stock is smaller I'd be down to trade for stock. My head is just rocking and rolling unless I'm in full aero mode and that's just not working for me.
