Leaving Chicago for Glacier NP early in August. We’ll be towing a 24’ trailer with my motorcycle on it behind our 40’ TS. The “plan” is to head for St. Mary’s first, spend a few days there, head west to West Glacier (RT 2) for a few more days, then turn towards the west side of Yellowstone NP (bike trip to Beartooth Pass). From there we’ll head towards Zion NP and then to Vail and then meander home.
The idea is to find suitable roads for the MH that are close to good rides for the bike. The fact is, as much as I love the MH, there simply isn’t anything better than seeing the world from atop a bike. The smells and panorama are unbeatable! The MH enjoys the super slab and the 4 lanes while the bike prefers the two lane twisties (polar opposites!). I’ve been through the Rockies several times by car and bike, and from what I’ve seen, there’s more than a few roads that are not on the “recommended” list for the MH
. If you have any suggestions . . . . .
This will be my first time at Glacier NP and I’m looking forward to the “Going to the Sun” road on the bike, and a few more on the west end of Glacier. What I’d really appreciate is some “guidance and advice” on where, and more importantly, where NOT to take the MH. Finding good campgrounds is always a challenge with a rig 64’ long and I like a little advice on that subject too.
More advice is better than less advice, so what say you experienced travelers?
