Ah the planning has begun in ernest.
2014 the plan is to leave from Maryland and run west to Wyoming and pick up my son and run the mountains north to Jasper and back.
Run out would be a Super Slab run to South Dakota to pick up Iron Mountain & Pig Tail bridges Highway 16A. Looking at a 4 day run.
My son lives in Rawlins WY, from there North to Jackson WY and the Tetons.
Tetons to Chiefs Highwayto Red Lodge and then up bear tooth pass to West Yellowstone.
West Yellow stone to Enis, for Breakfast, great little drug store there. and run north to Glacier Nat Park.
Going to the Sun Road to Canmore Canada cutting west at Longview on 40.
A run up the Ice fields parkway to Jasper
Still working the way back from Jasper, looking for the scenic way back to WY thru Idaho. Looking at running thru Kamloops and then south to Idaho.. still working this bit.
Timing this is dependant on Leave dates of my son. I am planning on a window from mid June to Mid July. 16 days out and back from Maryland.
I know there are a lot of Victory touring types out there feel free to join up for some or all of the run.
The run out will be 600+ mile days, from there anything from 300 to 500 a day. I found that a 500 mile day in the west is much easier than a 500 mile day back east... Not sure why might be because there is no traffic and the side roads are posted at 70mph!
Yep heard all the horror stories about Yellowstone, 2012 hit YS at the end of July, almost no traffice for 3 whole days What?!
Westher yep heard all that too Snow is possible any time of year up north, I am good with that.
I could make this later but I do not want to get caught up with the mad dash to and from Sturgis, got caught in that in 2012 in a truck hauling bikes, do nto want to do that again.
So again if you are interested in some of all of this run, Drop me a PM with contact details and I will keep a distro list and send updates.
