Got to Billings. I left Spokane and toured around the Lake Coeur d'Alene area. Yes, more beautiful scenery and great roads. :=)
Spent three days getting over Lolo Pass on Hwy 12 (enjoying the area),
one of my all time favorite roads, to Missoula. I found the Kawasaki dealer and rode there to get the bike serviced. When I rode up in front I felt that I had been there before and when I went inside, I was even more sure. I asked if this shop used to be the Harley dealership and sure enough. Got the bike serviced and headed out for Helena. One night there and then made it to Billings and the H.O.G. Rally. Got some funny looks (being at a H.O.G. Rally on a KLR)
but after people ask me what the "deal" was they became VERY interested in my Alaska trip. I think everyone that rides wants to go to Alaska but most just don't have the time, motivation, or courage, to actually take off and do it. Too bad, they don't know what they are missing.
I had the required credentials to ride in the "official" H.O.G. parade but thought better of it (didn't want to push my luck too far). :=) Finally time to turn south and "head for home". Posted by Rick McDermed at June 30, 2006 12:00 AM GMT
