Rides like that are always epic. There is a lot of beauty to see on this continent. I take a trip like that every year. We just got back home from one, in fact.
Our trip this year was 8 days and 4000 miles. Seven of us went through Minnesota, North Dakota, Montana, up into Canada to Banff, Lake Louise, Moraine Lake, Revelstoke, took the ferry across Upper Arrow Lake (south of Revy), Coeur d'Alene, Lolo Pass, Idaho Falls, Jackson Hole, Grand Tetons, Togwotee Pass, Hot Springs, SD, and back into MN through SD. The scenery around Banff and Lake Louise is spectacular! Here's a sample:
I think my new favorite road is a little thing called P1 in Idaho between Kendrick and Orofino (also known as 'old hwy 7' - search for Cavendish, ID, and look at the road running through it, especially to the south). The curves and elevation changes make it extremely fun to ride. We found this while getting between Coeur d'Alene and Hwy 12, which is the road across Lolo Pass. No pics from P1, because it was just too much fun riding to stop, but this sign at the west end of the Lolo Pass road always makes me smile:
I just got my new Russell Day Long seat before the trip. Had a chance to break it in before leaving, but just barely. It worked very well. We had many days over 600 miles and one at 700. That ends up being 12-13 hour days from motel to motel. The seat performed even better than the Ultimate on my VTX. This was an expensive purchase, but worth it. Having heat in the seat is also a nice bonus. There were a lot of chilly mornings where that felt good.
Get out there and explore, people!
