A little can go a long way. I used a 1 gallon cooking oil bottle from a restaurant I stopped at in Oururo to get me a few more kms into the trip to San Pedro. A solution is always available.

I'm still away from the shop. Haven't forgot to look for that piece I bent up.

Update to The Route through NW Montana cause I like use roads where "Old" has been added before its designation.

You'll be going right past my place as you leave the Cheese Trail. Yell if you need anything.

And when they say the speed limit is 30mph, they mean it.

KrazE100 riding through Montana - July 2014

Because I am the foolish sort, I'm riding my Kawasaki KE100 from Chicago to Bow, WA where my wife will be working on a tree farm. It's not the fastest of bikes, but it's fun. Current plan is to mostly use US-2, but I love the Glacier area and plan on riding through it, I also have an affinity to ride roads where "Old" has been added to its designation.

That said, I present The Route through NW Montana.

This part is pretty well set, but I'm always open to ideas.

The main trip planning thread is here KE100 - Slow ride Chicago to Pacific Northwest.

PM your number, maybe I'll swing by.


Kinda looking at getting some bigger more MX style foot pegs. Worth spending the money on?

KrazE100 riding through Northern Idaho - July 2014

Because I am the foolish sort, I'm riding my Kawasaki KE100 from Chicago to Bow, WA where my wife will be working on a tree farm. It's not the fastest of bikes, but it's fun. Current plan is to mostly use US-2. I also have an affinity to ride roads where "Old" has been added to its designation.

Without knowing much about the area, here's The Route through N Idaho.

I'll be coming from the Glacier National area and think I'll take WA-20 after. Open to suggestions.

That is a long ride, and a long time for a 2T to be pinned.

SO subscribing to this!!!

Had a KE when I was 15 and it was a fun bike on dirt roads, that fun soon departed when it got onto pavement.

Best of luck to you.

When are you coming through? Are you wanting to stick to pavement or do you want some dirt or gravel?

I leave Chicago on July 11th and hope to be in Bow, WA in about a week.

I like to take the road less traveled, pavement, gravel or dirt. Any roads will work, just so long as I'm mostly making progress West.

A better ride for entering idaho would be to turn at Tompson Falls and go over Thompson Pass. Then follow the Couer d Alene River. Then work your way back to Hwy 2
