Good stuff Sgt.  Thx for sharing.

Definitely BTH countryside!

Just curious, did you cross 16 west of Buffalo?  Also looks like one of the pix was taken in the WRC????


Yup took 16 out of Buffalo, didn't get many pictures of it as it's a very fast road. There is a bit of construction that takes away from the fun, but it's still a nice stretch pf road.

WRC? Wind River Canyon, if so yes.

Hey Sgt Mac good pics and report and yes you are right about Sturgis quite the place. Sounds like we were in the same area at close to the same time I just got back the 11th from a week trip to lots of the same areas. Next time your out Utah way I could show you some of Southern UT its nice too.
Never mind that I see were your at now.....LOL... I just finished a F22 building at Hill got to love this state for the variety of what you can ride huh?

Sgt. Mac thanks for the report and the pics. I'm heading out to the same area the middle of next month. Glad you had a nice ride.

Headed down to Moab tomorrow with the family, going to try to hit as many of the parks as we can in 4 days, then off to Yellowstone, Montana, Wyoming and S. Dakota with family in tow again Labor day weekend. I do love the area and ride as many new roads as I can. Just not sure I can stick around to much longer.

Just did the Energy loop a few weeks ago, right after the fire, still amazingly beautiful.

Take one of the white water raft trips if you can while you're there. We were there last year and other than my wife almost drowning, we had a great time! 

I have pics of the whole NDE thing, if you want to see? I don't want to hijack your thread.

Sarge, love this pic. Last time I saw a hog hung up like that I was working in a slaughterhouse.
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

It was one of probably 4 or 5 I saw towed out in the hour or so I was there, all from one parking lot. They were just making rounds, as soon as a truck got one dropped off, he'd come back and pick up another, had multiple trucks running.

Hey Mac, here's the raft trip that I mentioned. Since it's not a MC related trip I posted it in the open section.
