Check out the Candle Light Inn, they have a great food and atmosphere, When I was there a couple years ago there were tons of bikes in the lot and plenty of people to chat with, it is South of Rapid but worth the small ride out there, oh and the exit is on the left not the right.

No better way to see the world than outta the cage and in the wind.

Beartooth

I did both Chief Joseph and Beartooth Pass last year on my softail. Camp was in Cody and I made a big loop out of it in about 6 hours. The ride was amazing, do both if you can and take some warmer gear with you. Here are a couple pics.
