    Howdy,

    We moved out here (from Nebraska) last year and finally got a chance to get another bike - as I have really missed my old r1100gs with all of the awesome scenery out here. I have been about 4 years without a bike and I bought a new to me f800gs yesterday.

    Looking to find local some folks that would be interested in a breakfast/morning road/gravel rides. Primarily weekends by I do have Wednesday mornings off as well.

    Hi Troy,
    I am in Hotchkiss and also looking for people to ride with. If you come to the Western Colorado BMW Riders rally here in Hotchkiss in September, we can meet and you may find more people to ride with. We can also get together sometime for lunch or something and talk things over. Send me a PM if you are interested.

    Welcome. I live in Delta most of the time and Fruita most weekends. Don't get to ride as much as I would like but always like riding with fellow inmates......including Radrack.

    Hey guys - Thanks for responding.

    Not sure if I can make it to Thunder Mountain yet - scheduled to be on call and may have to wait and see if I have to go into work once we get to that weekend.

    Any of you guys going to be around next Monday (Labor Day)?

    Hey John,
