Ride Home Day 2 – Red Lodge, Montana to Hulett, Wyoming

Today was a “bad choice” day I think. Not that anything turned out poorly, but I think it was more tiring than it should have been. Packing up the bike was much easier today; I’d taken everything off and into the hotel the night before, but knowing where things went made it much faster. I … Continue reading »

Ride home Day 1

Getting ready on my own schedule seems weird after having a set schedule for the past several days. I slept a little later, had a leisurely breakfast, and lounged in the hotel lobby for a while, trying to get motivated. I still didn’t have a real plan for a route. I was sitting there looking … Continue reading »

Continental Divide Ride Final Day – Helena, Montana

We awoke to the coldest temperatures we had seen so far… 33 degrees according to my motorcycle. Strangely, though, everything was dry with no frost. I guess it was just breezy enough or something; either way it was great to put away dry great for the trip home. Coffee, tear-down, breakfast, meeting. Meeting brought up … Continue reading »

Continental Divide Ride Day 7 – Moran, Wyoming to Middle of Nowhere, Montana

We did the usual wake up, coffee, pack, eat breakfast and riders meeting thing. It was going to be a 3-state day! The day started with a quick road ride to Grand Teton National Park. The park really had some amazing scenery, but was a little obscured by some haze caused by some nearby wildfires. … Continue reading »

Continental Divide Ride Day 6 – Atlantic City, Wyoming to Moran, Wyoming

After a great nights sleep in my cabin, we did the normal routine of packing up everything, getting breakfast (scrambled eggs with salsa, potatos, and bacon) and having our daily rider meeting. Our first stop was on the outskirts of Atlantic City, an abandoned mine. We poked around for a while in the old buildings, … Continue reading »

Continental Divide Ride Day 5 – Steamboat Springs, Colorado to Atlantic City, Wyoming

Day 5 sounded good. A plan had been made the day before, we were to meet an “interesting individual” somewhere and he was going to show us a cool route. We just had to get there, which, unfortunately, most of us didn’t. Our ride started with the now normal short highway ride to the trail, … Continue reading »

After spending 3 nights in Albuquerque, getting the new tires put on at the local BMW dealership, and doing a little sightseeing it was time to get started on the actual ride! We had a meeting Friday night to discuss some stuff that I won’t go into here, but it basically came down to wheels … Continue reading »
