Sandpoint to Pendleton

Today’s ride through Idaho, Washington and Oregon proved you don’t need mountains or rivers to form a beautiful landscape. Golden rolling hills (with nice twisty roads) do the trick all the same.

Banff to Sandpoint

It started off as a cold ride (40º the first 80 miles), but it was still beautiful. And the place we’re staying in Sandpoint is amazing!

Banff / Lake Louise

Breakfast at Lake Louise, a quick ride up the Icefields Parkway, then back to Banff for some bumming around. ‘Twas a day of perfection.


Motorcycles get rockstar parking, which is a big deal here. Cars had to park at a lot 4-5 miles down the highway and take a shuttle.


I mean seriously…

Going to the Sun Road

Words just can’t describe the sights one sees and the feelings that come with those sights while riding this road. And try as I might, I wasn’t able to properly capture any of it with my camera. You simply have to be here in person and experience it for yourself to “get it.” What a magical place Glacier National Park is.


Our new friends who we met back in Idaho, Sam and Steph! So great to run into them at the summit! See you guys in Banff!

Absolutely beautiful ride. One we’ll never forget and need to do again some day. This is one that should be on any motorcyclist’s bucket list.
