Fall Torrey 2020


Limecreek

Recommended Posts

So far the Texas contingent is showing up 5 strong, could be 6 strong if I can get SWMcKinley to join up.  It's been 5 years for me since my last visit and I am dearly looking forward to introducing 2 under 40YO  new comers to the Torrey experience.  Who else is in for 2020 Fall Torrey?  I really hope to see some of the old group that made a Torrey trip so special.

I usually get the itch  in the Spring....and just show up from Florida out for a spin. Fall is soooo far away... or is it?

The last full weekend in September and the weekend before Memorial Day.

 

@Warren Dean

 

Just to be extra clear, that's the weekend before Memorial Day WEEKEND, not the Saturday/Sunday OF Memorial Day Weekend.

Thanks very much. Also appreciate the bike input  my buddy GSJoe is out in Torrey now, on his new to him 2017 GSw - having replaced his well used GS1150.

@Indy Dave 1668 on your map is also known as Burr Trail.  It's paved from Boulder for several miles and then turns to dirt (last I was there).  There's a cool slot canyon perpendicular to the paved road at one point.

Don’t forget we have changed the date it is not this weekend. 

 

This is the FALL thread.  The date for Fall has not been changed.

I'm the guy in red, with the red K1200RS.

...about...?

 

Maybe your big butt, maybe posting about the date change in the Fall thread instead of the Spring thread. Either way, it's always nice to get an apology. ;)

Hey for how many days?

 

Torrey happens on the weekend before the Memorial Day weekend, and on the last full weekend of September. There are no reserved rooms, no registration. Show up and find somebody to ride with. Out of habit (and tradition) the Chuckwagon is the hotel of choice. Most people leave on Sunday. Some people arrive early in the week.

Most people show up Thu or Fri and leave Sun.  But like Dennis said, it's very loose and not organized like a rally so you can come and go when you please.  Some have done a week.  Some have done a day.  And one guy used to do an Iron Butt Burn Burner Gold or close to it and would stick around for 15 minutes to 1 hr.  Once he stayed for a meal.  Whatever floats your boat works.  But once you go, you'll get hooked.

Out the door in less than 4 weeks for Torrey trip number 2 in a year.  The sad bit, is this will be like the 5th time I've been on my bike all year.

Seriously?  After all these years of BMWST events, your first Torrey is during a pandemic?
