Hwy 16 is always a great ride, I usually ride 16 east to west, 14 west to east to Dayton , 14 back to Burgess Junction and then 14 A west to Lovell.
Sounds great.  Wonderful scenery on what I consider lightly trafficked roads.  One thing though, I liked 14A on the west side downhill toward Lovell before it was repaved.  Then again, for me, that goes for the other roads out there too.  Guess I just prefer the “rougher” pavement.




This year I camped in Greybull for a couple of nights and rode all of the above in both directions
I stay in the same general neighborhood in Greybull as you did.  I usually make base camp in the KOA there.  I like their diner, as I’ve enjoyed a few tasty meals there.  I also like one of the local motels there.

I learned long ago that you just don't pass up the Beartooth or Chief Joseph when in the area.
COPY THAT!

Rough storm came thru the CG. 

Only two tents were left standing.  A couple of small two wheeled camper trailers were truned over, limbs and debris were blown everywhere.

That's a great photo set. Thanks for posting it. I went out to Cody in 09 to ride and just loved the area. We were able to ride the Beartooth Pass, Chief Joseph Highway, Yellowstone park, and the Wind River Canyon. I was looking to head out to the Tetons but it was just too far form our campground and I only had 4 days.

Here are the photos I took:

My compliments on your website.  Enjoyed the pix.  Thx for sharing.  For me, reading other folk's ride reports takes a bit of the edge off wintertime.

BTW, I’m a fan of the WRC too.

Pretty much, my web site is there so I can relive my trips during down times like this. It's nice that others can enjoy them as well.

Happy riding brother!

That’s not my bike.  I had my C14 with me.  A married couple were traveling on that bike.  It was a very nice looking Harley and I believe it was “quiet pricey”.  The bike’s owners went into town that evening before the storm hit.  They didn’t get back to the CG until later at night.  Imagine their shock :yikes: upon returning and seeing that!

The bike had been on its side for a few hours; however, once the bike was righted it fired right-up.  I didn’t get to see the “downed” side of the bike during daylight hours and don’t really have an idea of how bad it was damaged.

I'm sure it had damaged sails and possibly even a couple cannons were bent up.  That is why a pirate ship needs to be anchored during a storm.   ;D
Keeping the economy going, one tank of fuel and two tires at a time.

Happens. If I hadn't been standing by my Vulcan in '08, the Santa Anna Winds would have pushed it over on I-15. Had to stand and hold it down for an hour.  :-\
