    Heated jacket liner.

I've ridden in 25 Fahrenheit weather before and my bike has heated grips.

    I will take lots of pictures trust me. I have the Contour GPS camera for my helmet and than my other camera for everything else.
    Read my lips. Heated jacket liner is not optional. Get one, or borrow one. Take it from a Canadian that rides well into November and starts again in February. My Gerbing liner is a godsend.

    Suggestions for the return trip

    Hi Sasan,

    Looks like a very nice adventure so far - please keep us posted!

    As to your return route:
    1. Looks like you have planned the US 12 "Lewis & Clark" run from Lewiston, ID to Lolo, MT. Good choice (IMHO)
    2. Assuming you take that run, I suggest you swing southeast toward West Yellowstone, then through Yellowstone and Cooke City, MT and catch the Beartooth Hwy US 212.
    3. Then, depending on time, etc. down to Granby, CO and over Trail Ridge Rd through Rocky Mtn Nat'l Park.

    I did all of these recently - definitely bucket list rides!

    Regards, safe travel,

    Hey Sasan:
    Your Southern route has you traveling on I-10 to Houston - you'll pass within 2 miles of my house in LA. I'm also planning an Alaskan trip this summer and looking for company. Lafayette is the heart of Cajun country and a great to visit. Let's work on the trip together.
