Today

We did close to 500 miles today and did Beartooth pass....well worth the long day!! Don't ever let anyone tell you that the best roads are dirt because their are some pretty damn great roads that happen to be asphalt...an adventure is what you make it!

Thanks buddy. I just had a thought... Your trip would have been so much more fun with OMG WTF

How long would you have travelled before either Eric / Erik's did something noteworthy?

Be well and hope to see you soon.

Day 17, final destination Sheridan Wyoming

All I can say is that Beartooth pass was fantastic and worth the trip! We really wanted to do the going-to-the-sun road but it wasn't in the cards for the day so we will save it for our trip to Alaska in 2013 or 2014.

Tomorrow will most likely end our little adventure/sight seeing but it will be the start of our long ride home....hope our tires can make it all the way home, running a Mitas E-10 on the rear. I sure hope its not as hot as our ride out was when it to got to 104 degrees every day and we were dumping ice down our shirts to stay cool!

Dave - Sorry to hear you had to cut it short, but it's good to see you made it home safely.

Dana - I hope your knee is ok, that sucks. I'm glad you're still able to ride though.

Have a safe rest of the trip, folks. Thanks for the pictures!

Sorry for the notice, but its going to be in the 95 to 100+'s from NE to VA, except the Appalachia.

Agreed, Blacktail Rd is one not to be missed.
