Left Bozeman early Sunday morning, there was snow/rain forecast for the area I was heading to starting at 1 so to cover my 330 miles I left at 6 am. The only thing good about 6 am in Montana is the sunrise.



It was cooooold.



Passed some beautiful mountains on the way up to Whitefish, which is where I stayed just outside Glacier National park.



Drove through Swan Lake Montana, felt like I was literally riding through the clouds here.





Made it to my home for the next few days just after noon. Loved this little cabin.

Got up early the next morning and headed the 30 miles into Glacier. I have wanted to rider here since I got my first bike, It did not dissapoint.



Tried running some trails around the area and was having fun till about the 10th time I had to do this.



Back to the Going to the Sun Road, took my by Mcdonald Lake.



Little further up.



Stopped off at a little creek and had my sandwich. Did not want to leave here.



Back on the road, nice twisty open road for me.



Did a little hiking and I'm pretty sure I found Fern Gully..





To the end of the Going to the Sun Road, only 16 miles were open at this time of year so I can't wait to come back and run the whole thing one day soon.



Went back and had a great night sleeping in my warm cabin. Got up early to be the first into the park the next day and I was. No one to tell me I couldn't park on the beach. Perfect



Except for the fact that I couldn't feel my face...



Stopped off at McDonald Lake again and had a bite.



Got up early and started towards Seattle. It was nice to be back making some miles so I wasn't paying much attention to the fuel. Almost



Just rode that day, not many pictures but here's one at the end of the day outside Seattle.

You moto-junkies should recognize this wall, had a great time talking with the guys here. What a cool job!



Got to swing a leg over the new 1190, I'll seems like a great bike and the TT guys spoke highly of it.



I got the whole story behind this well used bike. The trip started off as a Mexico run only, then to TDF, then Africa and ended up going around the world. He was flat broke when he got back so the Touratech guys had him do all the build out for their Seattle shop. He repurposed a lot of the old wood and did a great job with the whole space. Once he had some coin back in his pocket he apparently moved to Africa and married a girl he had met there during his travels. How cool



Headed back to the hotel. Going to head over towards the Pike fish market tonight and see what I can scrounge up for dinner. I'm really liking Seattle so far, neat town and great people.

I just found this report. Epic! Over the years , I've been through all those places. Brings back good memories. I started doing big trips when I was 22. I'm still going at 59.We have a fantastic and beautiful country.You need to start earlier in the season, though.It gets kinda cool in Montana.
