Both these rides have been posted before, but I thought I would post a new one and a long overdue review and recommendation. We rode from Cody to Red Lodge via Chief Joseph highway and Beartooth Pass. Another GREAT ride. The Chief Joseph section is/was gorgeous as far as views of the country side go. We missed a couple of pullouts for pictures that I regret. If you're into picture taking, I recommend hitting all the pullouts. Beartooth pass was great as far as winding roads and being able to look down 10,000 feet. It was cold at the summit. It had snowed the day before and was closed (mid-July), but, the road was clear and dry all the way up and down into Red Lodge. A bit of bummer if you get stuck behind an RV.
I had a potential maintenance disaster before heading out from Cody, so here's a shout-out for Kawasaki/Yamaha dealer on the west side of Cody was a god send. I lucked out with a part for my ST and two new tires and they were able to get me back on the road in hour. Such a relief and a comfort knowing I was "good to go" for the ride up to Beartooth.
