What is the weather like over there now, will it still be sunny and warm? I need to know if we will be bringing coats and jumpers, or just t-shirts and light jackets.

Go to weather.com, and put Montrose CO as the city, you can get a look at the 10 day forecast.

I looked earlier and the nighttime lows are predicted to be low 50's to high 40's (F) which is around 10 (C).

The daytime highs are forecast to be near 80F which is 26C.

In other words, bring a jacket and maybe even riding pants for the morning but you will be able to peel off a layer or so as the day warms up.

Also mountain riding temperatures are affected by the altitude. Winds off the mountain can be cooler too.
You should always have a riding jacket if you are going to ride in Colorado, riding or rain pants would be wise too. You can easily almost double your altitude going over passeswhich average around 10 to 11,000. Rain is usually widely scattered this time of the year, and usually light - but cold.

Ok, I'm gonna say it again. Yes, bring layers (sweater, jacket, rain gear etc) but nearly ALL the rain activity is thundershowers that start, and stop, at a moments notice.

Colorado is NOT Wales....??? :cheeky1::cheeky1::cheeky1:

One can always just PULL OVER, put on their rain jacket, and STAND THERE (admiring the view, of course!) and I promise, the weather will change, in 10-15 minutes....just my "two pence" worth, ye who are soon to inherit the GL1800....

I'm so glad you are coming Dylan/Wingnut Junior...you're the best, as is your Dad.

MPete :waving:

PS- I accidentally? typed GL800- that might be the PERFECT next step for you, Dylan. Steve do you have any clout with Mother Honda? :D

Sorry, Dylan. I missed your message til now. It'll prob be about 80 during the day, maybe 45 at night.



Bring some layers, like a fleece, then a nylon shell to go on top. Maybe also one sweater.



I almost always take some thermal underwear, light knit cap, and light knit gloves, just in case, when I'm traveling in the Rockies..



You should not need rain gear. This is the desert and it just does not rain much.



Travel light. We have all kinds of extra clothes here, probably in your size, so don't worry.



We look forward to meeting you, and showing you our world.Cheers. Wilton
