Yeah, I've been in September and Loveland Pass was 22 and a few feet of snow.....and I'm taking the R1 this trip. No heated grips, but i've used those scooter handle covers, they work pretty good too.

I'm still contemplating this, but hate to move my big trip up by 3 weeks to a month, because I don' want to get to Colorado to early and the high passes I want to travel are still closed or frozen. My trip plan was to head through the south, TX, NM, AZ, a little bit of Nevada, Utah, Colorado and if not too cold maybe Yellowstone and SD before heading back. I was planning on leaving the middle of May for 4 to 5 weeks. Do you think If i start from Horseshoe will it be too early?

Leaving after HMR could be a bit early, but really depends on snow totals this winter. I go out that way every year, but always in June or July. First time I rode the Sun road at Glacier it was the 3rd. week of July & the road only opened the week prior. Past 2 years have been little snow & fairly mild. It can still be pretty damn cold camping at elevation though.

If you'd like to do both & still start your trip late I'll throw out a couple options. Trailer here & leave your bike, trailer & gear here drive home. Drive back & leave your truck then start your trip.  Return here load up bike & head home. Storage space is not a issue.

Option #2 would be ride out then leave bike & gear, fly home. Fly back here & then start your trip. We'll get you back & fourth to the airport. Allegiant has pretty cheap flights out of Orlando/Sanford. $50.00 - $75.00 one way into Little Rock.

Should you need tires while here, just get them shipped here & we can mount them. You wouldn't be the first to do so.

We'll do whatever we can to help out for one or both trips.  :)

Thanks Cliff.... I'm looking into another option that looks very promising. Do the south part of my trip and leave the bike at my cousins house in Albuquerque and fly home, return in mid July to August and do the northern part.
I'll have an answer in a few days.

Speaking for myself, paying for the extra day is no biggie for the food or we can just do it the easy way like last year for dinner.

While your at it,,,, can you check on arrangements at the Motel?
I have someone that is interested, but he's a non-camper.

Before you say it... No,, it ain't me.
I'm gonna camp.
I plan to bring the "Gold" tent.   :nananana:

If you bring that "Gold" tent again, Cliff will put you in the back of the pasture behind some trees so we don't have to look at it.   :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

I thought that tent was way cool, but I was camped out by the shop and didn't have to look at it much.  :beerchug:

Ride safe, Ted

Checked on the hotel today, there giving a $65.00 rate. Normal rate is $72.00 they say.

I've put all the details together & sent them to my AD. This should be on the calendar soon. Increased the price some, food cost are up & for the first time I'm gonna have to buy firewood  :'(. I've always cut it myself to help on cost, I just haven't had much dead stuff to cut around here this year. Not to mention this year includes 6 meals.

A place to camp, shower, drinks, ice, ice chest & 6 meals furnished for a mere $40.00. Still a frugal COG bargain in my book!

Typically not that cold, 50's - 60's. Spring time in Arkansas it could be anything though.
