I'm with her....if I can get the damnable water pump replaced along with the head bearings on the Concours before the trip...otherwise I'll be there on the poor little Nighthawk....

Nuh-uh...that's a 100-mile tank and then you're pushing it. The filler for the tank is through the passenger seat. I'd have to unstrap my load every 100 miles, at 35 mpg. Fast and "cool," yes, but a road-burner, no....

The Honda gets 180miles per tank, the Concours gets 230 per tank. And Connie is soooooo comfy, mile after mile, day after day....

Water pump will be here Tuesday, I should be able to install it myself in a day. Bearings will probably take me two days 'cause I'm slow. I think Connie will go to CO! I love that bike....

I have to agree the Connie would be a more comfy ride and practical for you.

So it looks like you ladies will be arriving on the 18th, sounds good. Just what time? Because I may just keep an eye out and then ride up along side of you...I think I will be taking the ST so watch for a red one when you get to Co.

Figuring on late afternoon. Can't say beyond that... its a long trip.

On my way to the Conference in Athens, GA, I kept in touch with another gal via text message. She was traveling from Maryland, but left the morning after my daughter and I did.

It was cool to get text updates of her progress when I stopped.

We should exchange cell phone numbers! (That is those who have "unlimited texting" I suppose) - via PM.

I'm "hoping" to still come to the conference. I'll probably fly. My riding friend has some health problems and I told her I was concerned about this trip....She admitted that maybe a long road trip was going to be too much, so we're flying in.

We (or me) will arrive on the 18th.

Way to hang in there, Blues! I'd really like to meet you. Bummer about CC--hope she's okay. Maybe she'll still be able to make it by plane, too.

This is your chance to rent a Harley . . . I hear they also rent Hondas . . .

Maybe Blues can get the pilot to paste the bug game card onto the nose of the plane?

I booked the flights today. We arrive on the 18th. Now I have to look into how to get to Keystone from Denver.

I didn't vote at first, because I was not sure what was happening. It won't let me vote now.

My vote would be at a hotel at the resort.

My guess is that as with most "distant" resorts around an airport hub, there are going to be regular shuttles. When hubby and I went to Park City, Utah to ski, there was a tourbus shuttle from Salt Lake City airport to the ski resort(s). It was fairly inexpensive and quite comfy.

Try googling Denver to Keystone shuttle...

Might also get in touch with Fay Meyers or Sun and rent a bike.

Well, it's official-I can't go. My left shoulder has been bugging me since February, and it's gotten so bad that I just got 2 more cortisone shots in the joint. No tennis, no swimming, no weights-and no riding. :( Physical therapy starts next week.

I'm not happy about this. At all. This throws the other trips I was going to make out the window as well. I'll just have to take really good care of it to make sure I can make it in 2012.

Ohh, SC, I'm so sorry! Hope you heal well. Ermmm . . . could you fly out & back? They don't make you use your arms on the plane (hopefully).

I wish that was a possibility-but I have to keep up with physical therapy.

I did have a thought-we could always, y'know, start our own rally :twisted:
It's not about the vendors to me anyway.

Hehehe-the TMW women's rally....

Yup, been going thru the same stuff. Got a couple of injections last week and it still hurts...but i don't have to go far.
Sorry you can't make it, maybe next year.

Blues2cruise, there are a couple of rentals, Mile High is right by the Airport a matter of fact they have a booth in the airtport at concourse B second level...I bet they will even pick you up.
Thunder Mountain has a huge rental facility located off of I-70 in Denver.
There are alot of others.
