sounds like you've covered some good ones on this side of the state, but IMO you'll have to travel to the S.W. corner to find the best of the best in this state. Hwy. 141, the Gateway canyon, which a good portion just got repaved, is probably my favorite twisty in the state. Followed closely by Hwy. 92, black canyon to Hwy. 50 is pretty awesome. Also in that corner is Hwy. 65, the Grand Mesa, which is pretty darn fun too. Probably should also mention the Million Dollar hwy. out of Uoray too, although traffic can often times be a PITA. And Hwy. 149 from Hwy. 50 to Hwy. 160 is pretty good too. All of those have much less traffic then any of the twisties on this side of the divide.
Unfortunately those are all over your "3-4- hours away" criteria.

Do you know of any other FJR riders in the area?

I have family in Parker and roamed the area of Douglas, Arapahoe, and Elbert Counties.
I don't have the luxury of 2 day riding yet. "YET"

I ride with my neighbor we are always looking for more roads and some more riders.

there was another fjr rider posting here that lived in Aurora a while back but I never met him. And we didn't do it this year but the previous two summers we had a group ride with guys coming from all over the country and we road the S.W. corner of the state for a long weekend. Maybe that'll happen again this next summer. Was a lot of fun.
