Let's start a list. Obviously talking street legal here. And I know being a city Denver and the surrounding areas tend to be a grid but fun can be found with a little effort. And while I grew up close to Colorado Springs I never explored much...living in Denver now I would love to hit some worthy rides in the Springs.

:hmmm:
1. Bear Creek Road between Morrison and Evergreen. :bannana:
2. Highway 67 between Sedalia and Sprucewood...and beyond if you want to do dirt and then more pavement eventually.
3. ?

I personally find myself enjoying the most twisty routes with the avg speed limit ~ 20-55 MPH, minimal "straight" miles especially not on major highways. For the WR450 and a KLR650 I have a truck to haul them around and so I prefer to log miles on the diesel over hours on the WR when I can. But I would also be interested in logging more fast paced dirt road miles on the Sumo as well as hooligan/stomping ground type places/routes. Don't give up any secrets if you don't want to.
What about Pike's Peak, the hill-climb?

3. Berthoud Pass.

Yeah it's not exactly close to Denver but it's not really far either.
I've only done that on my KLR and while it only has a dozen or so hairpins the scenery makes up for it IMO.

Bear Creek between Morrison and Evergreen sucks right now...lots of cyclists on the road and cagers enjoying the scenery.
I found that out the hard way on my ZRX this last weekend. Weekdays are probably lighter.

HWY 67 and down around rampart is fun, nothing too challenging, other than some gravel on the road in spots.

Might want to check out some clear creek canyon and the nederland area, stop by the casinos for a break and a quick bite to eat or lose a bunch of money...

But generally, stay away on weekends...

Last evening was my first real supermoto ride since I converted my WR and it was Bear Creek from Morrison to Evergreen and back. The ride was about 6:30-8:00 PM with a rest stop in Evergreen. I only saw 2 cyclists, a few Harleys in Morrison, some fuzz, and of course the cagers weren't going fast enough but that's no surprise. It was EPIC for me until I caught up to a cager both going up and coming down. Then I just slowed way down and let some slack build so I could still have fun without riding their ass. It wasn't as crowded as I've seen it before but go figure like any where else if its a nice place there'll be other people enjoying it as well.
