    Feeler: Rocky Mountain Roundup 2018?

    Ever since the death of the tater ranch we've (meaning 50sGrl and I and a few others) have missed a BBO gathering in this region. We have just moved away from suburbia and into a larger place, with room to host guests and motorcycle parking. There are lots of twisty roads, and we're at most 1/2hr away from civilization and restaurants.

    That said, who might be interested in a BBO gathering near Denver next season? Our prime riding is between late May to mid October. Caveat: we have 4 dogs that might lick you to death.

    annnd.. discuss.

    PS I know some forum members have gone over to Facebook, so expect a cross-post there too.

    Hi asp,
    If the meet happens to be during my vacation I will be there! Sadly, we are too far away to get there any other time. If you host it and if it is during our trip we'll be there. (we are always off for 2 weeks starting Labour Day weekend).

    I forwarded it to my son (MBen on here). He lives outside Golden and works in Boulder. He needs to get his DRZ400 out more.

    I’d love to meet up with everyone again, but with the kiddos it would be hard to be gone that long. Maybe I could persuade my wife to visit family in SLC and go from there. Not bothered by having the 250, its the kids.

    First two weeks in September is the best riding around here; if it doesn't conflict with anything that may or may not be happening in Durango. We can surely do a gathering then.

    Definitely something I'd consider! Will follow along to see how it develops and for which weekend. I didn't get any BBO ride this summer/fall and missed it.
