I have to admit I'm not particularly fond of those pictures with the bike on the monument. I mean, sure it's not mine and I'm not even from that country, but if everyone does that imagine how that place looks in 50 years...

Those plains look so amazing, I'd so much love to go there one day.
What would be the closest place like that to visit from Vancouver (BC)? (Canada or US, whatever is closer).

Those war memorials are really interesting. It's hard to believe that whole wild west thing was just 150 Years ago.
I just hope they also have those memorials for the Indians that were killed by the whites...

So many amazing photos here!

There are places marked with memorials for the Plains Indian, some are marked by private citizens of the area, as in the picture below. Most do not tell a happy story as the old Great Plains was killed off to create the new Great Plains with it's ever decreasing population since about the 1920's and decreasing water levels in the Ogallala aquifer as it is drained to grow crops where once only grass and yucca grew.

Yeah, I did the whole high line from Williston to Whitefish a couple of weeks ago. Nothing like crossing the wide open spaces.

Nothin like a stiff crosswind for 3-400 miles to mess with your head, plus the 100 degree temps.
The next day it was snowing ontop of the Going to the Sun road.


Just want to say thanks to everyone that enjoys my pics, its appreciated. I also appreciate all the other poster to this thread and thanks for sharing your photos.

I decided to ride on my side of the river the other day for you all (east of the Missouri river) the prairie pothole region. A lot flatter and full of wetland potholes.

First off a ran into a grassnado, sorta like a sharknado...












Ran into a lot of this... roads that are no more and routed around the the water.






Another dying little farming community... The gas station that is no more.




I cant say enough good things about this Bike, enough power to get ya into serious trouble but eats up the miles like nobodies bushiness, and a fuel range that will let me ride all day without even thinking about when or where i should get gas... got my dream bike and pretty happy with it after 6 years. Still puts a big smile on my face each time i fire it up.
