You fellas caught two good days on the Dalton. Thats a feat unto itself!

My hats off to the guy on the Concourse. I had a tough enough time in the rain on my KLR a few years back.

Happy Travels guys!

Yes we did, if you could order weather that's the weather we would have ask for. And we know good weather makes all the difference.

Gotta ask about the gas can holders on the foot pegs. My friend that is going to the black hills with me on Sunday only has a 3 gallon tank. I have over 6. So we have been looking for a set up very similar to what u have on the pegs. Can u share what that is around the gas can please ??

Thanks.

Mine and Maxbet's are homemade. It is sheet metal, I can't tell you what gauge. On my bike the two screws that hold the foot peg rubber on get removed with the rubber and the mount sits on the foot peg. Another bolt attaches to an existing bracket on the bike, it is very sturdy. I hope these photos help.

what's next

We wanted to ride The Going to The Sun Road in Glacier Park and have been checking on the road opening on-line. Many miles of it are still snowed shut so we give up on that idea. So what's next, we have had Beartooth Pass on our list all along so looking at the map I see Yellowstone Park is too close miss, so that's a plan. Leave Colville and go south on 395 and take Flowery Trail Rd. Very cool, it goes over the mountain and past 49degree Ski Resort. We had some light rain and I don't have any photos. Through Idaho and into Montana, we went over the Continental Divide at Cheif Joselp Pass. Threating rain, we stopped for the day in Wisdom MT. This struck me as a real western ranchers town. Found a room at a little motel, Nez Perce



Walked to a restaurant, very good!



Salmon




We were looking at the map to plan our route to Yellowstone and saw a shorcut that looks like dirt. Maxbet wanted to get some more dirt on his bike so we made a plan.

More Dirt/Gravel

Day 22------Sat. June 28

We are looking for Melrose---Twin Bridges Rd. Ah, There it is.



Greg,



And Yes some Bison, I was starting to worry I would not be able to add them to my list of wildlife.









It was only about 20 miles but we had fun.

Yellowstone

On our way to Yellowstone we passed through Virginia City, it looked like a really cool old Western town. We should have stopped but I was in too much of a hurry to get to the Park.

We entered Yellowstone at the West Gate. This is my other family.



No,,, I just couldn't wait long enough for them to move so I just took a photo.

We headed 16 miles South to Old Faithful and got there about 15 minutes before it blew. That's something I have wanted to see for a long time.



There she blows,, not as impressive as I thought it would be.


The Lodge.




Just as it was finished the rain started, and it turned into the heaviest rain we have had. That made for a less than perfect ride around the Park. After a couple hours the rain stopped and it cleared up nicely.

Leaving the Park.






We left the Park at the Northeast Gate and stopped for gas in Cooke City, there we decided that the weather was so nice that we should ride over Beartooth Pass now.

I see that you have the proper EPA approved pouring spouts on your gas cans, invented by the same guy that invented the Rubik's Cube. Those assemblies that attach to the foot pegs is a sign of genius. Thanks for taking all of us along on your adventure.
