Three of us made this ride in September of this year and it was everything we'd heard and more. Big bike friendly, stunning scenery in it's variety and grandeur, and FUN! If you ride DS you just have to make this loop. We did it in 13 days but did cut off one or two of the side scenic loops as we were dawdling along and enjoying the scenery. We never had to ride late, or rush in the morning. Well, we did get in to the Box Y right at dinner time, but that was the only really long day, at our relaxed pace. One of our riders was on his very first ADV ride, on a R1200GS. Enuf said.
The Box-Y is a must, and we found some neat, but old, log cabins just north of Atlantic City on Louis Lake that we really enjoyed. No electricity, just a handy Coleman lantern provided on the table. We had Moose for company in the morning, too! Wild Bill's is right in Atlantic City; just ask anyone where. He wasn't home when we were there but had a note out front saying to fill your gas tanks from the provided cans and leave money. I imagine it's generally there when needed.
Thanks so much Tony, and Frank, for letting us in on this trip!
