Took a nice ride today through Glacier Park

Headed out of town at 6 AM and home by 4:15 PM. Beautiful day for a ride though Glacier National Park. 493 mile round trip today and had time to snap some video of mountain goats and pics of some of the sites and moose.

I did some I-15 interstate when I first run out of town today at just under 80mph. Over 80 miles in the park was likely all under 50 (some way less). I really seldom exceed the speed limits by much. Most two lane in MT is 70 and freeways are 75. Running a couple over that allows one to make pretty good time. I do hammer it up to 90 occasionally to quickly clear a motorhome train or 18 wheeler. There where a couple or three of those today. Otherwise you'll follow those slugs up very hill and turn at 55 or less and then when you hit a passing area they want to race you to the end of it. Had plenty of time for lunch and water breaks. Went 249 miles on that second tank of fuel and still only took 5.3 gallons of fuel to pack it full when I got home. All of that tank was on the way home once I was outside the park. I've only had this bike since 22 May and I am very pleased with this first 4700 miles to date.

Sure is pretty up there. I need to make it back up one of these years.

Temps look sweet, too. Sure is warm here in Texas right now.

Thanks for the pics, and congrats on the RGU! Damn respectable mileage for a 6 week old scooter, man. Hard to get off of these babies, ain't it?

Was there in 2009, one of my favorite trips! When we went the upper pass was still closed due to snow.
