So Scott, are you going to post a route just for HotRodZilla? It would include day spas, antique stores, tanning booths, fern bars, veggie diners and needlepoint clinics!!

So what?? Ride your own ride jerk-face! Now...I just need to find a nice massage place that will rub me down with Lavender oil and rose pedals. Where'd you go last time Don??

I'm sure there's plenty of that stuff in Aspen if he wanted to ride Independence Pass ;)

It keeps getting better...

COSFJR mentioned that he likes to see pictures of attractions and/or routes when he's trying to figure out where to go. To that end, I dug through my photo library, and picked out some pictures of the areas where I had them. I put them in each route detail page. A full listing of the routes are here: http://www.sw-fog.com/routes.php

Well, I WAS thinkin' of trying to make this one....that was until HRZ and Beemerdon started talking about rubbin' things down with rose oil and what-not. I'll NOW be investing that time in therapy.

I'll have to check dates at work n see if'n I can get off. If so, I'm in. You boys really should look at a nice R1200GS for riding Colorado. It's the only way to roll around that state!

HRZ, I thought it was illegal to date your own daughter in New Mexico? Maybe I am thinking of Old Mexico.

Patch, if you don't bring Hannah this year: You can always room with Big-D, Old Michael and tu Papa Chuy!

Well, if he insists on riding during her nap-time, she'll have no choice. You give her a blankie and she's done for! 'Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Before I forget, my wife pointed out to me that at the top of the main page on the SW-FOG 2012 site http://www.sw-fog.com/, it says July 19-22, 2011 (not 2012).

I'm assuming that's a typo ;)

With that said.... as a new FJR owner who does not have a passport, or any desire to get one just to go to the NAFO, the SW-FOG event has got my attention.

What's the weather usually like in Salida, Colorado that time of year?

Thanks,

Jon...

Weather in Salida in July is typical Colorado Summer. Daytime highs from the low 70s to mid 80s but mostly in the 70s. Chance for afternoon rain and evenings in the 50s - 60s. I love Salida, right on the Arkansas river with good riding all around. Be careful of the runs up toward Buena Vista, they patrol this stretch with a vengeance. Independence Pass is my favorite pass in the state. I hope I can make this one, work always seems to get in the way of SW FOG for me.

Yeah, but GalaxyBlue hadn't posted up there...just sayin'. Also, Jon_PDX...the weather in Colorado that time of year is about as perfect as motorcycle riding weather gets. Not too hot, not too cold, juuuuuuuuuuust right. There IS the potential for rain, but I suppose that's just about anywhere (except Texas where it's flat, hot, and drier than Beemerdon's sense of humor). If you're going to make a ride to the mountains in the US, this is the place to go IMHO.

http://www.sw-fog.com/routes.php Wowser, check out the Routes page now; Scott has gone back and added great photographs to many of the suggested day rides.

Even though I didn't see any of the usual ones of HotRodZilla tipping over an FJR!

Thanks for the weather info and the reminder to make sure the radar detector is turned on :)

I don't know yet if I can get the time off work but if I can this sounds like a fun event.
