Haus and I rode west. His OL had a ride of her own that week. He said he wanted to ride far, so I went with him. We wanted to go to Glacier and ride the Going to the Sun Road. After that, we had no plans. We said we'd like to see the Pacific and ride to California, maybe. It was a great trip.

I rode to his place and then followed him to the expressway.

We rode through Wisconsin and Minnesota and stopped for the night.

The next day was North Dakota where I got an oil change. I had some piston slap on my S&S 124 which was replaced under warranty right before the trip, so I needed to change it. I guess I didn’t take a pic in Bismarck where I got it done. We stopped at the Fargo dealer first.


Saw some weird field art.

Then it started looking westy.

If this were at all legible, you’d see we made it to Montana.

Met some nice locals at this bar that had good food.

Then more cool road and a sunset on our way to lodging.

We lodged in Miles City, but Miles wasn’t there so we were disappointed.

Had breakfast in Forsyth, then rode a lot.



We found out we couldn’t get in to Glacier until Monday, so we decided to change course and go ride Bear Tooth Pass. Stopped at Billings HD first.

The Señora was sparkly.

And they sell weed out of sheds there.

Sent this to the Squaw because she’s super cool and roots for me to go on these adventures.

Got to Red Lodge where it starts getting awesome.

Like tundra high…



What goes up must come down.

Then Mexican food.

Decided to lodge in Cody. Passed a deserted mine town on the way down.

The next morning, headed back north into Montana on our way to Glacier. We had breakfast at a bar that was having a state identity crisis

With our main goal completed and a Bear Tooth bonus. We decided to head to the coast, which turned out to still be far away.

My rear tire was getting bald. Seattle didn't have the right one. We wasted most of the after noon calling places.

The folks at the dealer in Salmon Creek WA had one and said they could do it if we got there before close. It was very close to the OR border, which was far, so we hustled buns to get down there and made it just in time.

The service manager didn't realize I had a 124 and almost junked it pulling out for the test ride. LOL

The next morning I got a call from work that I needed to be back in four days instead of five. We kept heading west anyway, determined to see the ocean and california since we were so close.

Then we headed inland to make it to California faster.

Stopped at this place because our map thought it was an HD dealer. I guess it used to be. Drank their coffee and bailed.

We made it.
