    I'm taking the long way up to Tuk and came across this road. It's number 1 then becomes 38 in northwest Montana between I90 and US93. I went from east to west. The east side is okay and I found a few side roads I could've stayed on for days but the west side gets very tight, very steep sides and no barriers. 20190609_133029.jpg

    Sorry, I'm in my tent typing between my tablet and cell phone. Cell phone is giving my tablet wifi so I can upload a screenshot of my garmin map. Also not real good at posting from my phone. Not sure how my bike photo got in the last post but either way, that is the bike I'm riding. I'll post more photos from my phone of the road.

    I also took a detour. I could've taken the side roads all day long.
    Here is a 4wheeler trail. A bit steep and rocky. Actually, I should've never road it. My bike is 820 pounds plus myself at 250. I ended up having to come down the hill with my motor off. The back wheel couldn't stop the bike on it's own so with a stopped motor, I would let the clutch out and feather some front brake to keep the bike controlled.
    Fun but stupid.
