Motorcycles on Going-to-the-Sun Road

Our family gets together several times a year for epic motorcycle adventures.

motorcyclesMaybe epic is a bit too strong a description. More like three or four days of riding and then not riding. Eating, some shopping. Lots of photos. One of our favourite destinations is Glacier Park. It is located in the U.S. State of Montana, and the highlight for us is the Going-to-the-Sun Road. Fifty two miles of narrow, twisty road crosses the Continental Divide. The road is punctuated with frequent places to stop and take photos of the mountains and the wildlife.

This road is great fun on a motorcycle, and a nail biter in a big car. It is a narrow road, and can be heavily congested during tourist season! We usually drive it from east to west, then stay in Whitefish for a few days. Sometimes we return to that road the next day and go west to east, turn around at the summit, then go back to Whitefish!

People are more violently opposed to fur than leather because it’s safer to harass rich women than motorcycle gangs.
