My Wife's' 2012 "Biker Stories from the Road"

I had convinced my wife to ride motorcycles and last year we took a trip out to the mountains of Montana and Wyoming.

That report and the background of how I got her to start riding can be found in that ride report here.

We had enjoyed that trip so much this year we had plans for another big ride. A few weeks before we took a long weekend trip into northern Minnesota to make sure we were ready to do it again.

We live pretty close to the center of the continent so made a couple of plans for this years big trip and they would all be dependant on the weather.

Plan 1 - Return to Jackson Wyoming and pick up where we left off on our tour of US Hwy 89 "The Parks Highway")
Plan 2 Head east and try to make it to Quebec and then head south into Vermont and return around the south of the Great Lakes
Plan 3 - Go west and travel the mountains of Montana, and BC
Plan 4 - Head south to the smokey mountains of Tennessee and the Carolinas

Last year our trip was in late September but as this years trip was to be in August we immediately threw out Utah and Tennessee due to heat and or humidity issues.

I really had my heart set on heading east and the long range was supporting it but within a few days of travel the long range forecast had changed and it looked like heading out to the mountains was the place to go.

This years trip was also going to be different in that our close friends jim and Cindy were going to accompany us on the trip. Jim and i had completed an Alaska trip in June but this would be his wife's first big trip and her forst experience with driving in the mountains.

Again Denise (my wife) was going to be sending updates back to freinds an family so i used these updates to create a ride report.

So here we go, with another edition of "My Wife's Biker Stories from the Road"
