A few pix from a broke down ole rider and wife enjoying a bit of scenery—some of it from two wheels.   Yes, a trailer was used.  Just ain’t up to “tuffin-it-out” now-a-days.


Basin countryside.




Heading to the Bighorn Mts on Hwy 14A from the west to east.

A few more pix from the Bighorn Mts.





This fellow had NO appreciation for the C14.  As I was riding away from the CG I caught a glimpse of something black moving through the trees and toward me from the right as I was entering a right-hander.  I figured it was a bear at first and he just wanted to cross the road. So, I sped up a bit in an effort to get out of the way.  BTW, I was still in 1st gear.  Well, the black form sped up too and was now “breaking cover”.  I saw that it was a moose and he was on an intercept course.  I wicked it up a bit w/o engaging KTRAC and cleared his intercept point with no trouble.  Once I was a few hundred feet clear of him, I stopped and took this pic of him.  To me, he had sort of a disappointed look on his face.  Who knows what was on his mind.  Maybe he didn’t like the bike’s color.  One thing is for sure, I didn’t want to go tangle with him.  Not the first moose I’ve seen in the Bighorns.

Nice pictures, It looks like you had a very nice ride. I spent a couple of days riding the Big Horns in late August. Took the time to find the old section of 14A which was bypassed several years ago, It has some great scenery but is really a Goat Trail.

Thx Roadie and Roadhound.  Glad ya’ll enjoyed the pix.
I can’t get enough of Montana and Wyoming.

Sounds like a winner to me.  Would love to have my dirtbike out there with me.  Plenty of trails in the Bighorns. 

Hwy 16 is a great road too IMO.  In fact, I kinda think 16 a longer scenic ride than 14A or 14.  How about you?

BTW, did ya manage to ride the Chief Joseph and Beartooth Hwys while you were in the area?

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. This year I camped in Greybull for a couple of nights and rode all of the above in both directions.

I then camped in Yellowstone for 4 nights to do a little Trout Fishing along with some riding, I learned long ago that you just don't pass up the Beartooth or Chief Joseph when in the area.

Awesome pics.  I hope my dad and I make it out to the Big Horns (around Sheridan, WY where he grew up) within the next couple of years.
Keeping the economy going, one tank of fuel and two tires at a time.
