Did you have a last year going to Vegas flashback going over Berthoud? LOL!

Drive was great for 90% of it, though we couldn't go up Poudre canyon because of a marathon(went up to Laramie instead), which kinda stank. I got to cannonball the canyons behind a 1M, won't get that experience very often.

Alfred, can't believe you pussied out, only rained/snowed for a short section at the end of the trip, otherwise a great day.

We went too. Took the E30 M3 again - my ears are still ringing... If I had known we were going up through Laramie this time, I would have taken the 335i - much more punch on those open passing zones and a whole lot less drone than the M3 - I have to keep it on boil around 4K rpms to get any performance out of it.

We bugged out after lunch from Walden and went back via Cameron Pass - that ride was great, the marathon from earlier cleared out a lot of the canyon traffic and we had a nice fast run down with very little traffic.

There were two 335i's I was running with down from Cameron Pass - a sedan and coupe, both montego or lemans blue - I can't tell the difference between those two. Are you guys on here?

There are some photos posted on the RMCBMWCCA facebook page if anyone is interested in seeing them.

Smart move. Wish I would've done that although the leg to granby was fantastic. But after granby we got into rain almost immediately and sleet over berthoud. Lots o sand still on the pass too.

I looked and didn't find a rmcbmwcca fbook page.
Looking to get ahold of some of the video people took too.

That was the first time my car had seen sleet. Fortunately the road over Berthoud wasn't too bad, just very wet.

Lol how old are you? I didn't accuse you of anything. I simply asked of the manufacture dates of your tires you were selling, and said that tires may not be good after sitting around for some years. You got offended. You definitely knew you were selling unsafe tires. Otherwise, you wouldn't have gotten offended of my questions. Grow up.
