Hmmmmm. Subscribed. The only thing giving me pause is the potential price of the hotel. I'm hoping there will be options for with/without hotel.

I've heard of it and vaguely recall it was 5W. I use synthetic ATF fluid in my 950, 640, and did use it in my 520. Haven't used it yet in my 400XC but will give it a try.

Paved route, Shady Cove, OR to West Yellowstone, MT

Here's a paved route from Shady Cove, OR to West Yellowstone, MT. It doesn't stray too far from the shortest route but is a lot more fun and scenic than that.
