Iron Indian Reunion In The Rockies - June / 2016


Recommended Posts

I'm currently in Durango looking at a site for an Iron Indian Rally for next year. I think I've found a really nice place - the Iron Horse Inn just to the north of Durango on US-550 (the million dollar highway). This place is reasonably priced, the rooms are all two level suites with one bed downstairs and another upstairs. The rooms have fire places, a fridge and a microwave. There's an outdoor area with picnic tables and barbeques, and a laundry and game room. Breakfast is included every morning.

 

The Iron Horse Inn is not walking distance to downtown Durango - you'll have to ride a few miles to get there. But downtown has lots of stores and restaurants. If we want to eat here at the Inn we will have to get delivery.

 

Here's a link to a photobucket album of pictures of my room and around the place.

You'll need to book before March of next year to be sure to get a room.

 

I'll be talking with other IIRA members in the near future to nail down the dates of the event. Stay tuned.

What time of year? It's about 800 miles from me. If we can time it right...

Hmmmmm. June 13 works well for me. That way everyone can buy me birthday drinks.

My show finishes the end of May and starts again in July. The only other thing I have is a little race in Indy at the end of May. 100th running is this coming year so we'll be there for that.

Well then YOU have no excuse. I hoping for a good crowd. Million dollar highway, Mesa Verde, Pagosa Springs - some good riding around here, but I'm looking forward to being with the people more so.

I top off at fair, at best. Good crowd is pushing it. You may need Hasbin there to clear good.

Definitely keep me in on the details. Only been to Colorado once to pick up a bike. Hasbin can fill you in on those details...

Need input - HOW LONG (# DAYS) SHOULD THIS EVENT BE?

 

Personally I'm thinking 4 days Friday through Monday. 2nd or 3rd weekend in June?

especially since it will take three days or so for someone to ride there from east coast and then back again. My aunt lives in Durango....I know I will have to go by and spend a day or two with her as well. This is going to be a 12-14 day trip by motorcycle... hahahaha

rooms are nice, how is the outside? do they have like a fire pit or swing sets? stuff like that. So we can hang out.

 

 

edit...I just saw the rest of the pics. Looks good outside. didn't see a pit though

No fire pit unfortunately. Picnic tables are in a very sunny area - not much shade, which is a concern. This isn't Indian Point - so don't expect it to be the same. I wish they had a gazebo - but they don't have one. I think the sun will be an issue.

 

There is a sandy area that they are preparing to set up as a playground for kids.

That's nice.
