Motorcycle Roads - Colorado

Obviously a lot of great roads W of Denver... These are just the ones I've seen people post about that I want to record:

Colorado state road 14, Poudre Canyon, W of Fort Collins. At Walden, take 125 and 40.

Passing the Black Canyon of the Gunnison (near the town of Gunnison), find the road to Crystal Dam, E. Portal Road, it joins CO347; this road can overheat brakes on the downhill, even more fun going back up.

Take 92 N from US50 (E. of Montrose). This road is raved about. See

Also 65 N from Delta, CO to I-70.

From Randy Bishop, Highlands Ranch, CO: "Here are some roads near Black Canyon that I like: - CO-149 from Blue Mesa Reservoir to Lake City, Slumgullion and Spring Creek Passes, to Creed. - CO-65 over Grand Mesa. Great views and twisty roads. - From Crested Butte, the well packed gravel road to Kebler Pass. - From Almont (north of Gunnison) the road along the Taylor River to Taylor Reservoir. White water on one side almost all the way. And Lots of new pavement. :)  See  for the Pass Bagger 50

From Bob Hole: Consider CO 141 between Whitewater and Naturita. Also visit the South side of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison just east of Montrose. Make sure to take a right at the entrance station and ride down to the river. It'll be a good test of your brakes. (This is another reference to CO347.)

From klr650nut at yahoo com: Depends on weather and what the temp might be but from Grand Junction on I70 you could take 65 across the Grand Mesa and then 55 to Durango, great roads. Another great route is 141 from GJ to Gateway, Ridgeway, and then 550 to Durango. 145 to Cortez is also very nice.
