Montrose, Colorado huh. Assuming you haven't been there before, make damn sure you take Rte 550 up into Ouray. It's only a short ride from where you'll be. Spectacular little town (you'll think you're in the Alps) with amazing views. Continue on 550 to Durango (where you can do the "4 Corners", and the ancient native cliff dwellings) and then take Rte 160 to Del Norte - great mountain pass road. Also, it should be considered mandatory to ride all through the Rocky Mt. National Park and down into Estes Park. Be very careful riding after dark throughout Colorado - lots of big Mulie deer crossing the roads. In RMNP you're also likely to see some big horn sheep and elk. I've ridden all those roads many times and I'm jealous as hell that I'm not there to ride them again. God's Country for sure.
