Million Dallor Hywy this weekend?

Wife's go'in out of town for the weekend, I'm headed to the M.D.H.
If anyones intersted I'm leav'in Steamboat on Friday the 3rd and back home Sunday or maybe Monday? It'll be 3 days in the saddle, full of twisty mtn. passes, connected with hi-speed sections, ending with cold beer and hot springs.

Have a safe trip, this road is on my list. It must be nice to have these roads in your back yard.

Enjoy it. I'd be leery of riding Rabbit Ears this time of year. No telling how much snow and ice will be between Ouray and Durango. Ride safe Riptilyaflip!

Gonna hit that on the way to Shark Week.

In theory, Theory and Reality are the same. In reality, they are different.

When we were out there in 05 there was still snow on the shoulders of the road south of Ouray on the 7th or 8th of july. We left Ouray in the morning, some of the oldest riding ive ever done till we got over the pass and on the west(sunny) side of the valley. We had gloves, hats extra shirts etc on till we got Durango. That evening we arrived in Albequerque to 105* temps.

Hey!! You rode right past me!! Buena Vista is at the intersection where you take Hwy 24 south toward Salida (Hwy 50)!! I do live in the perfect place to ride.

The Million Dollar Highway is a MUST DO for anyone visiting Colorado. I make sure to ride it a least a couple times a year. But, as others have stated, be wary of weather conditions, it can be treacherous if you're not prepared.

Goin' north from Silverton to Uray is probably the best stretch of road I've ever been on!
