There is quite a lot of riding time between the Bun Cooler and Ride the Ribbon. What I am suggesting is a casual weekend rally in the mountains during the hotter months. 2 candidates I have as the locations of Republic, WA and Libby, Montana are both smaller towns with plenty of reasonable accomadations and motorcycle friendly. Any other suggestions and dates? I am especially interested in haering from locals of the northern tier or any Canadians on this. My disclaimer is I am not necessarily committing to running it at this point. I have ridden these areas and stayed there. Montana is more open roads with higher speeds, however there are more twisties in the Republic area. Or pick another. Plenty of time now but by the late spring something needs to be in stone.
