TRIP 2002 - ROOST TO ROOST (via MONTANA)
From Sedona, we headed north, caught the Grand Canyon and ended up in the Monument Valley for a couple of nights R&R (Unc fell over again!). A person can end up in a lot worst places to crash for a coupla days that this place. Not much for vegetation, but ya can understand why the Indians loved it so much.
On thru eastern Utah (Canyon Lands Natl Park, and lots of barren road) where both BC's bike crapped out (fried stator) and Trint's threw the primary drive belt on the same day near Salt Lake city. Once we got these minor problems taken care of, all three of us took a wrong turn into the road maintained project from hell. (Never follow Unc following a dirt hauler following a lead truck!!)
We continued riding the mountain roads thru southern ID and worked our way North following the Salmon River. When we made it to Missoula, MT, we laid up waiting on the weather to get into what is probably the most scenic Natl Park in the lower 48, Glacier Park. Turned out, we entered the park just after a substantial snow fall, and the peaks were covered in the white shit. Late August!!
All good things had to come to an end, so we turned east again and headed home, dropping down thru WY, thru the most expensive and scenic toll road in the country [thru Yellowstone North to the Eastern gates] and on into CO. The trip thru KN, (can't say enough about that run) was predictable. We found much more scenic roads in KY and TN. We dropped in from the north for the final run to the Roost. As usual, we found some fine back woods ridin' along the way. The entire little jaunt lasted only a month and covered just a little over 7500 miles.
Hope ya enjoy the shots we posted. bc
