Awesome ride with my pal from Sac to Yellowstone and back, covering 9 states in 12 days and 4,275 miles. We saw as much of the Western US as we could and had a great time doing it. I road my '03 R1150RT and my buddy Max road his '08 Kawi C14. Check out the goofy movie I made of our adventure. Enjoy!

My kind of ride, can you put up a route map so we can see where you were?
I've probably covered most if not all of it at one time or another.

Welcome aboard and thanks for posting your trip video. Looks like you guys had a great time...in spite of a few weather blips. Some friends I know met up in Cody, WY for a week of riding too about the same time you guys were there. They too were dodging the storms and thankful they had their rain gear. Enjoyed the video though.

Outstanding!....I think I've ridden on every road listed with the exception of the 278 in Nevada, I've paralleled it on the 305 a couple times but haven't done the 278 yet.

Thanks for all the nice feedback. I just found my route: here you go!
