Exploring Idaho

Headed out in the morning for MT, ID, and WY. Just exploring. Have a few suggested spots to hit.
Got the CTX loaded down fairly heavily. I donít think I had this much stuff on my GSA when I went to AK. But I had two big panniers that were loaded down. Hard to get too much into these. Iíll post a few pics here.

Leaving in the morning. Today was crazy hot and humid. Trying to get up to NDak tomorrow.
Edit. Iíve only had the CTX a few weeks. Had 5,020 miles on it when I got it. Now 5,300. Checked out by the dealer last week. Ready to go.

Just 700 miles yesterday. Was hoping to do a bit more. Last 2 hrs was in a cold rain. In Fargo now. One thing I noticed. I canít get far on a tank of gas? 150 and the gauge is flashing. Was heading into a strong headwind the whole day though, and Iíve got a big waterproof duffle crosswise on the passenger seat. Iím sure those didnít help. Hope to get close to some mountains today. Ha!

850 miles today. The CTX is running great. But the 80 mph speed limit in MT really can drain a gas tank! Ended up in East Glacier tonight.

Checked out some of the Lewis & Clark stuff along highway 2 in north east MT

Well, Iíve ridden the Black Hills twice, Beartooth and Chief Joseph at least 3 times. Yellowstone a few times. This trip is about Idaho. I havenít spent much time here. A few more random shots. 2,300 miles in so far. Last pic is where I am tonight. Elk City ID. Iím liking Idaho a lot. Just hope these tires hold up til I get home. Lolo Pass coming up. Lots of good roads here.

I lived in ID about 5 years. Met my wife there when she was there for one season. I still think of the place and the times I had out there. I went there to ski and then discovered summers were even better! Wonderful weather and the mountains are incredible. Iím loviní your posts and pictures, have fun.
