I've driven on the Beartooth Highway several times, but never on a bike; it's on my bucket list. In early-to-mid June I plan to jump on the Norge and head out there. Will likely slab it from Cincinnati to Hannibal, Missouri, and then head west on US 36 across Kansas past Mankato to US 281, then north to rt. 2 in Nebraska, then west to Alliance, then north on 385.
From US 385 to I-90 west to ALT14 into Cody. From Cody take the Chief Joseph Highway to the Beartooth Highway to I-94.
Here is where the rest of the trip is up in the air. As long as I am in Montana, I might as well explore the area for several days. I've been to Yellowstone and Glacier NP's many times; have no desire to revisit either place.
Any suggestions for lesser known/less popular places to visit or roads to ride on in Montana? What about suggestions for interesting ways to return to Cincinnati?
Thanks for your recommendations,
