Great pics, brought back some good memories of my first time there, think I recognized a pic of Gunnison Canyon, and love all those twisty roads in the red rocks (rode some but not the far west area near Gateway.

And those lovely alpine roads and views....


Thank you sir! We really enjoy this area.

AH yes, recall at Tri-STAR one year heading up Roan Mountain, then back down the other side since it was raining as we ascended. Later the same day thing we doubled back that way and finally stopped to look around. The first time I stopped after going thru a few times in sketchy weather.

The rhododendron there are pretty spectacular.

Quote from: Patmo
State Farm (who I also have home and auto) once told me "we only insure bikes because you have other policies, and the rates are primarily tied to engine size."  Which means a 1200cc cruiser was the same as a Hayabusa, or an FJR. All of which are ridden in different ways mostly by people with different ideas of riding.


This is not the case any more. Now, they use crash statistics like the big boys. They used to have good rates, esp. for fast, small displacement bikes. Not so much any more.


At one point, they tripled my rate for no reason I could tell, and I dropped them like a hot potato. They're still competitive for cars, but not bikes.
First wanted to point out something went wrong with that quoting of the prior post, that was something I wrote not Patmo.

Second, I've not noticed any great increase in my MC insurance rates from State Farm, certainly not anything even close to a 50% increase, let alone triple the rates. So its not likely a corporate wide change. (Trust me I don't stay with any company that has that kind of increase.)

Insurance is one of those things that just cannot be easily compared, unless you live in the same area with the same history, etc.

Fly-By WEEK / Re: Baymont Inn reservation
« Last post by stevegrab on June 21, 2019, 03:16:16 PM »
Sorry to hear about the mix ups, my confidence in the staff there hasn't been great since a couple years ago when their computers were down for several weeks and they were not able to take reservations. I wondered how does a hotel like that stay in business.

That and changing names 3 times in about 5 years.

Not dissing the work of the organizers, and generally customer service is on the decline in all industries.

If you meet up and get help from Patmo, you can't go wrong. Sorry I'll miss you all this year.
