The gondoola as we roll out of Sun Valley.

Lava beds across Idaho.

Spatter cones at Craters of the Moon. Hey Conrad, all those shots you think are coming from Curiosity were taken here. :)


In Idaho Falls for lunch, then off to Jackson Hole to spend a day or two.
Bike is running like a champ, best bike for a trip yet.

So how is the newly installed (the day before the trip) reflashed ECU and full Muzzys dual system doing?
 
How's mama doing on the back? Is she comfy on the Corbin with backrest?

Keep it at cruzin speeds and the Muzzy's are barely noticeable. Drop two gears, crack open the throttle and I can make the guy on the Harley behind me cry.

3rd day both of our @$$'s get sore and tired after 200.

Day 4 - 85 miles. We did the scenic Teton Park loop. Not a good day for pictures, too much smoke from the wildfires in Idaho. 










Oh ya, did I tell you how bad ass highway pegs are?




Happy birthday to me. BBQ'n and drink'n beer at the cabin, life is good.

Day 5 - 130 miles. Another short day with many stops for pics. 






Woohoo, Big Sky Brewing. 


Look at the size of this BMW motorhome. 


This cabin is not quite as nice as the last one. Oh well, gotta roof and a bed.

Day 6 - 210 miles of beautiful Yellowstone Park. Long day but the scenery is worth it.








After I took this picture three Rangers and an ambulance went flying by. Somebody must have pissed him off.










Great day, but I am really looking forward to tomorrow and the trip up the Beartooth Hwy. :)
