Bike trip 2019
« on: May 14, 2019, 03:09:52 PM »
Looks like it's going to be Badlands/Black Hills/Yellowstone/Grand Tetons/Bear Tooth pass and where ever else we have time for.

I will get the bike to Rapid City and pick up Sue Ann at the airport the Saturday of Labor Day weekend. She'll be riding with me for 14 days then drop her back off at the airport.

We'll be staging out of Deadwood/Hill City then Cody, Red Lodge, [maybe West Yellowstone] and of course Jackson Hole. Grab a place in those towns and ride the area a few days then move on.

We were going to do this trip last year but she got sick and had to use some PTO so we rode the Blue Ridge Parkway and surrounding areas instead.

Getting a GoPro Hero 7 for my birthday so I hope to record the trip.

Any suggestions?

 Sounds like a good time. I'm not going but the guy next door is.
I'm just going to close the mill down and take NH bike week off.  ;)

That sounds like fun. Wow, 20+ years since I've seen the Honda meltdown :D

 My wife and I were fortunate to be in the Badlands at twilight on a full moon. Many photographers were out there as it was quite a show. If timing works out for you , I sure do recommend seeing that, Good riding!

Aside from all the great riding and scenery, I'm looking forward to the Cody firearms museum https://centerofthewest.org/explore/firearms/
Supposed to be the biggest and best in the land with over 7000 on display.

There's also a firearms experience where you can shoot everything from a Colt .45 to a Gatling gun. Sue Ann's looking forward to that.
Cody Firearms Experience ? From Flintlock to Full Auto

They have a rodeo every day and since I've never been to one that's on my list.

I've been to Sturgis a few times during the rally and am looking forward to seeing the area without half a million other bikes getting in my way.

Ellmoe, That would sure be a beautiful sight! Hopefully everything lines up for us that way.

Don, I haven't seen a Honda meltdown for about the same time. There used to be one locally but they quit doing it as the last time they had a pile of them and set the fire with a jet drag car which in turn started a pretty big brush fire. :D

We were there several years ago.  I was a donor when the museum was built and have a belt buckle that allows me free admission.


 
This 1990 engraving was adapted from a gold pocket watch which was presented to Buffalo Bill Cody by the Prince of Wales in 1880.  We saw  the actual watch when we visited the museum.

One day is not enough time and you still will not see it all.   :o

I'm thinking we will be in Cody at least 4 days. Couple days seeing the Cody sights and a couple going into east Yellowstone.
Have you ever been on the Bear Tooth Highway?

I'm envious!

While in Jackson Hole I recommend having dinner at the Gun Barrel restaurant.
I had an elk steak and buffalo ribs, wow! Was that good.

Have you ever been on the Bear Tooth Highway?
Yes, across the Bear Tooth and down to Red Lodge is an awesome drive.  I enjoyed watching your video.

Our planned trip for this year will be a bit further North.....to Hyder, AK.

Bear Tooth Pass is a must see as mentioned, also don't miss the Needles Highway in South Dakota, I think it's Highway 87.

I've been on Needles HWY before and you are right it's a Bikers must do. We plan on spending a few days in that area before heading west to Yellowstone.

We looked at the moon phases. Looks like it will be full the last 2 days of our trip so here's hoping it's a clear night!
Speaking of moons. Last Saturdays full moon was beautiful. We took the bike down to the beach and watched it over the gulf water.

Plus one on the Cody Firearms museum.  There is more to see than firearms so plan on spending a day there.
