I left Butte and headed out thru Anaconda toward the Pintler Scenic Route. This route follows Flint Creek up the valley between the Granite National Forest and the Deerlodge National Forest. It was a lovely ride.

He has taken a similar route to mine and his wife is flying in to Glacier to join him for a ride in and around the National Park. As you can see, he rides a V-Rod, which seems to carry the travelling necessities just fine. Good luck to you Jeff, and Ride Safe.
