Thanks again.  Had a great time meeting everyone.  Good to finally make this event.  Been watching for a bunch of years.

A light turn out this year, still a treat to see everyone though :) Not a wrench was lifted either :-/

All told, five C-14's, a GS, new model KLR and an NT. Steve rode up from Loveland with a busted toe, said "the C-14 shifts like butter..." Larry traversed a patch of road ice on his KLR on the Peak to Peak riding up from the south.

Freezing up here at daybreak, warmed up to low 50's by Wretch time. Red Beans and Rice, some corn bread, and a couple of brews. Four pots of coffee too... remember is was cold out ;)

Hey Rick, sorry I could not make it on the rain date. We should ride in the near future as I live just down canyon. Den

I just fired up Sam for the season after replacing a leaky fork seal, and an oil/filter change. 170k miles and she still purrs... kinda ;)

I'm thinking a lunch run / RTE of some sort, maybe mid June? Breckenridge Brewery is a favorite, so is that little cafe at the top of Coal Creek Canyon. Wonderview?

Hey Rick,
All of these sound great. I do not know Wonderview, but would be all in for a ride to any of these places. Currently I am looking forward to Trail Ridge Road on opening day...always a good ride. Den

We just drove up to Rainbow Curve on TRR...no snow at all on the road...even as far as we could see past the gate!  I would LOVE to see them open it early...do they ever do that?

I'm down on a RTE!

Edit:  I see they are going to open Independence Pass on May 11...that's almost three weeks early!  Woo Hoo!

OK, being a young boy from the great plains, never in the big city...what is RTE?

The WonderVu cafe is pretty good. I've stopped there a couple of times when I'm out and about locally. I'm in for a ride with you's guys. Let's set up a date, maybe a Sat early June?
