Inviting riders, June 10-18, 2017

HEAR YE, HEAR YE!!!
I am planning a road trip, to start and end in Grand Junction, Colorado, tentatively set for June 10-18 to places to be determined and, am herewith inviting fellow maxi scooterists to ask to join me on this epic journey. As the 18th is Fathers Day, We may get back on the 17th in consideration of that and, to allow out of town riders Sunday to get home). Total distance likely to be 1500-2000 miles. Bikes and riders must be willing and able to travel straight as well as twisty roads, with an emphasis on twisty, at all potential elevations, in all potential weather conditions, at (or perhaps, just slightly above) posted speed limits and, wear appropriate protective gear including helmet, leather or otherwise armored jacket, pants/chaps and gloves, adhere to established group riding protocol, while immersed in breathtaking beauty. This trip will be both about the ride and stops. There could be a 500 mile day and, could be a layover to enjoy something a place has to offer.

This will be MY trip, with me making all final decisions regarding destinations and route (with strong consideration to given suggestions) and even who will ultimately get to go. Limited to eight bikes in addition to me and Dena, first come, first accepted, PROVIDED I feel rider and bike qualify, based on information you provide me in a private message. Include, at a minimum the bike to be ridden, your riding experience (years, miles and, types of roads - 2,000 miles over 20 years on city streets ain't gonna cut it and, if you plan to have a pillion rider, similar information for you AND your passenger, specifically as it regards riding two-up), medical conditions to be considered (I don't care if you have well controlled high blood pressure...I DO care if you've had a heart attack for example and which, would not automatically remove one from consideration but, would warrant further discussion.), medical training/experience and, anything else you feel pertinent. I will ultimately not invite those I don't feel qualified, as I want everyone to be safe. If there are more qualified responders than slots, for those that wish I will put them on a back-up list in case someone has to drop out. Politics and religion WILL NOT be discussed on this trip so, if you can't keep your views to yourself for a week, don't even apply.

I am planning on a mix of camping (For those without gear, others may be able to help out so, don't let that hold you back provided, you're willing to camp), hotels and if available, hostels and other offerings of hospitality. Those interested should first ensure they can clear their calendar for the dates given, clear it with their significant others (whether they will be going or not) and, drop me a line ASAP. I would like to have a group put together and start planning by the end of February.

From this day, the anticipation builds!
