Request Info for Idaho, Montana, Wyoming!

Good day

I will be riding in Idaho, Montana and Northern Wyoming coming from South Dakota for a week in the middle of June on my way to Calgary and I was wondering in some of you could recommend some nice scenic back roads (gravel, mountain pass or others...)...nothing too extreme....

I am riding a Super Tenere on TKC front and K60 rear.....

Also I will need some service and tires replacement around Missoula so if you could recommend a good Yamaha dealer, this will be much appreciated...

Thanks in advance....

Mobius in the last year is a gold mine.

Dockingpilot's "Forever West" report is among the best ride reports ever on ADV ...

... with the possible exception of his Idaho ride report, which is packed with great information about the greatest ADV state.

If you are heading west from Missoula The Lolo pass is a good curvy road that kinda follows Lewis & Clark's journey.

If you make it to Lewiston at the end of the Lolo trail, a trip up the Spiral highway is recommended.

At the bottom of the Lewiston hill, do not take 95 North. Continue west on 128 about one mile and then turn North on the Spiral Highway. Not an interchange, just a stop sign at the bottom and top. It does meet up with 95 at the top of the hill so it is a logical detour.

Looks to me like you would have to turn off 310 at Frannie to get to Belfry, then 308 through Bearcreek to get to Red Lodge. I have driven those roads in a car, but not for years. They were in good repair then.
