Hi Guys,
Just got back from a 2,000 mile ride and my 17-Tenere 1200. We did a part of ID-BDR. Tenere is known to be heavy but on gravel and dirt roads, you don't even notice it.
But we did hit ID, MT, OR and went up to the Glacia National Park. Tenere' performed as it should. Solid reliable machine.

Your trip looks an awful lot like my trip to ID and MT a year ago!
I rode some BDR sections too. I definitely wanna go back!

Parking lot pic at Logan Pass? Glacier is one of my most favorite places, been there many times since my first visit there with my parents in 1960. A lot less crowded in 1960.
That is the Glacier National parking lot, it is right at the top mid-way on the "Road to Sunset".

we have friends in Montana, and my wife and I love to ride our bikes up there and then go visiting/sight-seeing on the bikes!! Lovely state, just too cold in the winter for my thin blood!! Staying further south in Texas!!

May want to re-think that after this summer in Texas. You can always add layers, but there's only so much you can take off.

have been re-thinking it!! It has been so hot this year and they are now forecasting a colder than normal winter!! Maybe I have to move north a state or two? OK, CO or AR all look great for motorcycling and cooler weather!! As these states have mountains, I could even get back into paragliding!! :)
