Our Low Motorcycle Loan Rates are Almost Criminal

RMLEFCU has made it easier to buy a motorcycle

There are so many reasons to pull the trigger on a motorcycle purchase. Perhaps you used to ride when you were younger but life’s responsibilities got in the way. Or, you are new to riding, but crave freedom from four door transportation. Regardless of your motivation, Rocky Mountain Law Enforcement Federal Credit Union can support your motorcycle purchase with rates as low as 3.99% APR* with up to four years to repay your loan. Plus, you’ll have some extra dough to spend on motorcycle accessories since we pause your first payment for 90 days!

Maybe you’ll stick to riding your motorcycle within the metro Denver area or you’ll hit the road and head to the San Juan Mountains for a ride that the Discovery Channel ranks as one of the top 10 Motorcycle Rides in North America.

Which Motorcycle Suits Your Personality?

RMLEFCU is bringing back low motorcycle loan rates with the Toys of Summer Loan. Get a  motorcycle, boat, ATV or JetSki with rates starting as low as 2.99% APR*

Motorcycles are popular with many of our members, but if you are new to riding, how do you choose which motorcycle is right for you?

A good place to start is to check how much different models weigh. The weights should be listed on the manufacturer’s website. If you are less inclined to lift heavy objects, it may be wise to pass on that heavy cruiser.

Let’s look at 3 main types and what type of rider is drawn to each.

Touring Motorcycle

These are specifically designed for covering long distances with large-capacity fuel tanks and a relaxed, upright seating position. You can ride alone or with a partner and there’s room for storage. Touring bikes are great for riders who want to get out and explore Colorado and take weekend long trips. (or longer!)

Top 3 Motorcycle Rides in Colorado

Rocky Mountain Law Enforcement Credit Union understands the lure of the open road. We offer motorcycle loans starting at 1.99% APR to keep your payments as low as possible. That way your attention can be on riding and not how you’re going to be able to afford your bike.

Riding a new (or new to you) motorcycle while surrounded by Colorado’s beauty is something Midwesterners can only dream about. If you have an appreciation for history, beautiful mountain views, and great food, these three trips should fit the bill.

1) Lariat Loop – Short on time, long on adventure.
Begin the loop in Golden at 19th Avenue and 6th Avenue by heading left on 19th. This will turn into Lariat Loop Road and Lookout Mountain Road. Your first stop is Buffalo Bill Memorial Museum and Grave. Admission is only $5.00 and you’ll see artifacts associated with “Buffalo Bill” Cody’s life and times between 1846 and 1917. There is also a gift shop with fudge, ice cream and of course, buffalo burgers.
The Lookout Mountain Nature Center is a mere 3 minutes away. Here you may catch a glimpse of wildlife among the 134 acres dotted with ponderosa pines and meadows. Look out for an Abert’s squirrel, aka a “squabbit,” scrambling across the trail in front of you. Other highlights include panoramic views of the Denver metro area.
Head back down Lookout Mountain and take Highway 40 west until you hit I-70 West and then take Highway 74 into Evergreen. Here you’ll find a bar called the Little Bear that brings national acts, primarily rock n’ roll and Blues to this mountain community.

The next town you’ll hit is Morrison, home to Red Rocks and the Morrison Inn. If you haven’t sat on the deck of the Morrison Inn with a basket of chips, salsa and a margarita, do yourself a favor and stop there. From Morrison you can take C-470 back into Denver.
Total miles: 40

2) Highway of Legends – Walsenburg, CO to Trinidad, CO
When you leave Walsenburg, take CO 12, aka Highway of Legends.
You’ll see the Devil’s Stairway, a staggered rock wall where legend has it that the Devil came out from hell to survey the world, choosing the Cuchara Valley as his entrance. He would climb the steps and sit on the twin mountains, plotting how to make it his. God learned of this, and noticing the beauty of the mountains and valley, took it as his own. He forbade the Devil to ever enter the area again, but the Devil’s steps still stand.
Continue on to Cuchara, near the Spanish Peaks Wilderness area. Cuchara was home to a ski resort from 1981-2000 and many owners have tried to revive it through the years. Most of the infrastructure remains giving it a modern day ghost town appeal. The gear shop is still packed with skis, helmets and poles.
Be sure and stop at the Dog Bar in Cuchara and enjoy live music, pizza, and great people watching on the large outdoor patio.
