INSIDE: Squidbrah rides a sportbike across the vast state of Montana...and probably a few other places in the Northwest. This thread will be my pictures and descriptions/route suggestion/random thoughts/hootenanny dumping ground while I live here for the next 4 years. Every town, state national park and twisty road is going to be covered up in here by the time I leave. I guarantee it. Right now the weather is very meh for riding, but that shall soon change in a few months. The riding season is short up here, but as soon as the good weather hits, this thread will be updated almost daily. Background: I moved up here in March 2012 relocating from South Carolina for work, I got bored and bought a bike. That's pretty much it. The roads are amazing up here. I don't exactly "fit in" up here either. No cowboy hat, no northern accent, not blue eyed or Native Indian. Fun times are ahead. That really has nothing to do with the thread but whatever....anyway.... Here she is the day I bought her on August 5th 2012. $6500, 4k miles on the clock. Low-sided once. She is mine. Took my BRC, got my license and I was on the road in a week. My first ride on a supersport was something I'll never forget. Just the thought of having that much power with the flick of the wrist will put a smile on my face until the day I die. Very few feelings in life can compare to what I felt that first day. I took her south on I-15 through the Helena National Forest on one of my first rides - following the speed limit at all times of course, stopping at this overlook between Great Falls and Helena. Great Falls is an absolute shithole by the way. The world would lose nothing if the entire town disappeared. More on that later.... Obligatory sideview off of Recreation Road....you'll see alot more of Recreation Road as this thread goes along. One of the best routes to ride in Montana, in my opinion. Rec Road once again, and Holter Lake, a couple miles down a windy but bumpy side road Eden Road just south of Great Falls. It snakes for about 15 miles until it turns into a dirt road heading into the mountains. No traffic, no cops. Just Farmers and their oversized pickups. Random shot in the ass end of KGTF...Ugly indicators and fender: Gone. More to come very soon my friends.
