    I am going to a retreat at Bear Trap Ranch from Sunday until Wednesday. My flights in/out of Denver leave me with enough travel time that traveling some back roads could be a possibility. I arrive at DIA at 7:05 Sunday and depart at 8:00pm Wednesday.

    Would anyone local to Denver be willing to rent/like an their bike over that period? Something along the lines of a TA, XL650, 640ADV. I daily ride a TA here in TX. I know it's short notice and a lot to ask, but the answer's always no if you don't, right?

    FYI, no feelings will be hurt and I won't be without transportation if this doesn't happen.

    You might want to rethink your plans as the weather is calling for snow Sunday night into Monday morning with up to 6" possible in the higher regions above 9000 feet. At lease that is what Weather Bug is saying.

    Thanks for the recommendations. Since this is an organized retreat, the bike would be parked for much of Monday & Tuesday, so a full price rental isn't really in the cards.

    I did see there was some snow forecast for Monday, but there will be nice warm shelter to stay in.
