If it were me, this time of year(HOT). I would swing north into Montana and pickup highway 2 all the way into the U.P. of Michigan. You would have the choice of either entering Canada, or heading south and missing all that BS on the south end of Lake Michigan. Kansas,Nebraska, South Dakota will be very very hot.
If you do take highway 2, stop in Fort Peck, Montana. There is a cool motel/bar/restaurant, pretty reasonable as well. But call ahead. It is called the Fort Peck Hotel.



In any case have a safe trip.

Thanks Bud. Looking to stay north as far as possible. Cain't cross to Canada due to fire arm regs  :'( But trying to stay as cool as possible. Heck, heat? Beats the hell out of KS, TX and OK. Not to mention the Mojave in NV. Shall be early morn departures. PS Humidity sux's.

Well the ones leaving from Cali  at least you will know what a good price for gas is as you travel across this great nation of ours :great:
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover – Mark Twain.

just bought Diesel in rural NV. $2.89/gal. I pretty much did a dance. And no you do not want to see it.

Great National Rally! Fantastic job by the Northeast team! On the road for 16 days and 15 nights going cross country and back with a little over 7,000 miles ridden! This country is beautiful and though I love California and the Southwest, Every state has some great stuff to see! Enjoyed our time in Williamsport and saw quite a bit of the area surrounding it. Just beautiful!

Thank you to Mark Hartman and Keith Williams my riding partners! They are the just great persons to ride with! We saw a lot of heat, humidity, rain, hail, wind and sunshine!! We had a plan and nothing was going to stop us!! They are the best!  See you all in Vancouver, Washington next year!!
