Thumb “2010 Forever West” Featuring The Best Of The West On Big Trailies



This, as you will soon see, was to be the best route we have ever ridden period. And we’ve ridden a few. The power of the pen, or keyboard in this case, is severely deficient in its ability to describe where we rode and what we saw from our big trailes.

We’ll ride portions of the northern CDR in Montana, Idaho and Wyoming, the Oregon Trail in Wyoming where original wagon ruts are still visible today, cross the divide like the emigrants did at South Pass


and we'll ride the Pony Express route across Utah


and then onto the Trans Continental RR grade all the way to Promontory where east met west and the golden spike was driven in 1869.


And much more. 14 Days and 2,800 miles ,98% offroad, of spectacular western history and scenery. So take a seat partner, pour yourself a glass of whiskey and we’ll take you along for the ride of a lifetime.

Yeah, Blacktail Road from Dillon, to Centennial Divide Road and on up to Gravelly Range Road is NOT to be missed by anyone traveling along the Continental Divide. Too bad the timing didn't fit for camping one of the many gorgeous sites we saw along the way ...

Glad to see your report, been waiting since I ran across you guys having lunch in Wilson Wy. Met one of your crew and steered him to the correct cafe.
Looks like you hit Fish Springs (Utah), my old stomping grounds....

The bikes again will be trucked out west by Federal.


My good friend and 2 time ECEA Grand Champion and 2 time USA ISDE rider, Bruce "Redcorn" Kenny is stoked.


On this epic adventure this year was Bruce of course, my long time riding partner John Pitts KLR650, Mike "P-Diddy" Piazza BMW GSA, Dennis Demarco, the only convict not from NJ riding a Husky TE610 and Duane Kerzic on his 950 Adventure.

Ready for prime time, or least I hoped so.



Redcorn says goodbye for now to his SUPER ENDURO (i did that for you Bruce). The bike being fitted with the 8 gal tank out of necessity on the trip as fuel range will be stretched to the max.


2 weeks later we fly into Idaho Falls .


The first thing that greets you coming off the plane is this:





Now, where the "F" is my bike ?


Bill Cycles in Idaho Falls is a 1st class operation. They accepted and took good care of our bikes until we arrived. Not many shops like this one fellas.


After getting out hotel rooms and bikes we all went out to the Snake Bite for dinner. You think John is amped up ? Even his hair is glowing !


The food was excellent. When in Idaho falls, you must eat here. Mike, back, right, hoping here that his GSA final drive is as good as the one on the new SUPER TENERE


In the morning we shove off and head north for the Continental Divide. We have 13 days of riding and 2,800 ground miles to cover. It should be easy.


As usual. we ride with no daily mileage quotas. Where ever we are at the end of the day is where we be. If its in a town, we'll motel it, if it's in the middle of nowhere, we camp. We wil just let the adventure unfold as it comes.

Frank, did you buy those Mitas tires over here in the states or did you have to get them from across the pond? Inquiring minds want to know.
