We do wish to serve your needs so this ride is comfortable and full of positive memories. Our rides every year have filled our personal treasure chest with laughter, beauty and great people. We now want to share this with you. Come join us for a small group tour with a personal home grown touch.

Day 2 & 3
Montana’s Rockie Mountains
You’ve heard the nick name for Montana, “Big Sky Country”. Well now you get to ride it. Here’s the American West at its best. For two days you’ll ride at highway speed with mountain ranges always in view and of course Big Sky above. Montana speed limit reaches 80 mph here, so settle in and put the wind in your face. We’re on our way to Glacier NP.
Day 4 & 5
Glacier National Park
We’ll stay at the northeast gate of Glacier the night of day 3, this way we can travel the park going east to west with the sun at our back, highlighting the stunning mountain sides and unmatched views of Glacier National Park. Leaving Glacier behind we’ll head south along the east side of gorgeous Flathead Lake. You’ll enjoy a 70 mile lakeside view, wishing all the way you could live right there. The photos you’ll take to remember this day will be incredible. Glacier National Park and Flathead Lake, this is the day you came on this ride for!
Day 6 & 7
The Sawtooth Mountains of ID. Maybe you’ve heard of them or seen a picture or two, but that leaves you well short of what you’ll experience. The Sawtooth’s are epic. Your lodging for the night rests along the Salmon River, so if you like fly fishing, it doesn’t get any better than this. The view from your porch is of the Sawtooth’s Mountains with the Salmon River winding through the grassy fields before you. Be sure to wake up early, make a pot of coffee, sit on your porch and watch one of the most spectacular sun rises against a mountain range you’ll ever see.
Day 8 & 9
Alpine & Jackson Hole Wyoming
We’ll put some miles behind us today. We’ll travel south and west through southern Idaho. Along the way we’ll ride along rivers and between mountain ranges. Our destination is Alpine Wy. A great location to spend 2 nights just outside Jackson Hole WY. You’ll have the second day at Alpine as an Open Ride Day. Visit Alpine or Jackson Hole, take a day ride or just hang out at the great lodging location we stay at. Your choice.
Grand Teton & Yellowstone
Today we ride to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Paks. From the south we enter Jackson Wy, an iconic old west town known for its world famous shops and the Jackson Hole Ski Resort. We’ll ride to the base of the Grand Teton mountains, the most majestic, sky reaching, picturesque mountains you’ll ever see. We’ll make time to stop along the banks of Jackson & Shelly Lakes were you’ll take some of your most memorable photo’s of the ride. We’ll continue our ride up the west side of Yellowstone, where you’ll see Lake Yellowstone, Old Faithful, Mammoth Hot Springs and so much more!
Open Ride Day in Yellowstone National Park
Spend the day at your pace exploring Yellowstone is what it’s all about. Today is your day to wander where you want to go. Take a map and venture out to all corners of Yellowstone National Park on your own. Your welcome to have us guide you today but with so much to see you may be best served to satisfy your own interest and experience Yellowstone at your own pace. Be sure you see Yellowstone Canyon and the Upper Falls from Artist Point. Amazing photo opportunity. We’ll meet up for our 2nd nights stay in Gardiner, MT.
Chief Joseph Highway
What a great day this will be! As we exit Yellowstone we travel through the Lamar Valley. If you’ve come on this tour to see the American Buffalo, up CLOSE, this is the place to be. From there we travel through Cooke City, MT and the amazing Chief Joseph Hwy. You may not have heard of this highway, but once you ride it, you won’t ever forget it. We’ll stay in Red Lodge and prepare for an early morning ride over Bears Tooth Pass.
Bears Tooth Pass
Today’s ride takes us back through Cooke City MT and to get there, we ride Bears Tooth Pass. Yes this is Bears Tooth Pass day. You will experience the number 1 rated motorcycle ride in America. There’s just not enough space here to express all I could say about this ride. INCREDIBLE!!! All good things must come to an end. We’ll have to turn in your American iron horse at the end of today, but what a way to finish. Your lodging will be at the same hotel you started out in on day 1. That will feel like a lifetime ago after this ride. We’ll have the departure dinner this night when we can exchange stories and well wishes to your new friends and certainly contact information. Kiki and I will have a little surprise for each of you before we finish up. We’ll have a great time!!!
It’s air travel day. Transportation from your hotel to the airport will be supplied.
