Only ridden there once (last fall), but found Colorado to be a challenge to the "home base" model. Best I could do was two nights in any one location. For example, we rode Colorado Springs to Ouray where we stayed for two nights. Spent one day touring Telluride and the canyon road towards Grand Junction, then headed down the Million Dollar Highway to Silverton and Durango, where we spent two nights so that we could take the steam train for a day-ride. Then off to other points of interest. Camping is cooler/cold at those altitudes, regardless of time of year. Awesome sights, though. Bring the GoPro and take tons of pics.
Some folks seek the comfort of the straight and narrow. Me? I prefer the twisted road.
