Day 323

I am transferring some files around on some old hard drives, and I found these gems: My first two GoldWings and my old GS650G Suzuki! The one in front is my first GoldWing.  It had a broken motor mount, but ran.  It cost me $450 in 1989. The second GoldWing I bought from the Honda […]

Day 258

The Topic this month in the Great Falls Camera Club is Portraits.  Here is one of mine that did not make it into either the Competition or Critique. Rider of the Storm, a self portrait. ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 221

In a complete switch of subjects…I was digging through some stuff in the basement and found these photos.  Circa 1975-1976, probably taken on my Argus C3 Matchmatic!  I think they were photographed in or around Rossland, BC, but I am not sure. The little bike on the right is a 1972 Yamaha R5C two stroke […]

Day 282: The Last Day!

I forgot to get a photo of my hotel in Red Lodge…a nice old place, but a bit pricy.  The owner told me Beartooth Pass had had snow Thursday night and they thought it was closed for the season.  I am glad it wasn’t! After determining the GPS was leading me 40 miles out of […]

Day 280: It is all downhill from here…

Now we get back into some really impressive roadbuilding. Just a couple thousand feet down from the top is a nice rest area. Lots of scenic views from here! *** And one of a loop of the road above! This is where the rest area is.  The pink line is the road ahead.  A few years ago […]

Day 279: Over the Pass!

So you’d think it is all downhill from Beartooth Pass, right?  You’d be wrong!  The road winds around quite a bit, up there near 11,000 feet… About all of that snow: my hotelier in Red Lodge told me there was a foot that fell up here on Thursday.  They thought the Pass was closed for […]

Day 278: Up! And Away!

More curves and another lake! A quick look back at the last lake while still going up! More up ahead. The road loops around a bit ahead of me.   Can you see all the switchbacks? This will help!  Motorcycle Heaven! Now there are some curves! Looking back again.  I seem to have gone up […]

Day 277: UP! UP!

(Holy Catfish!  I am three weeks behind!) Once out of Cooke City I start up the Beartooth Highway.  There is a road that goes down this valley, over Stoney Indian Pass and ends up in Cody, WY.  Dad and I did it in the mud and rain back in 1987 when we went to the […]

Day 276: The Rest of Yellowstone!

On this trip, anyway. Riding North from Canyon Village the first thing I did was ride up Dunraven Pass (8859 feet) into the snow.  This did, however,get me out of the Caldera.  It was about 50 miles by road from one side to the other.  That is one BIG volcano! Coming down the north side of […]
