    Took a nice ride south of town today. Wanted to try out the new Shinko 244's. they performed great on the pavement as well as on the soft dirt and gravel. Also, don't Armor All your seat the day before. I was a slipping and a sliding all over that seat. Enjoy
    :D

    Big Sky country at it's best.

    Those pictures really make me miss Montana. It has been too long. Prettiest state by a long shot.

    Your welcome! I hope you all enjoyed the pictures. There will be more in the future, Montana is such a huge and diverse state you almost can't take a bad picture. I'm really excited to finally get the opportunity to get out there and explore this great state.

    Beautiful country, nice photos! Thanks for taking the time to share. I once used Armor All on the seat of my old Transalp. Took several rides before I felt like I wouldn't look like a cartoon of a guy twisting the throttle and not going going anywhere as the bike takes off without him.
