    Here's one;

    The "Beartooth Pass" is SW of Billings out of Red Lodge, Montana! One of our BEST roads in NAmerica, Hwy212. Go on into Cody and East from there. Devils Tower, Mt.Rushmore then loop back North East. The Pass above is a no miss for me If I ever get near it. Another favorite is the Little Bighorn National Mon. in SW Montana right off the Interstate 90. I know all the places you listed above, not much to dislike...Randy

    You might want to swing north through Duluth and cross into Ontario and ride north of Lake Superior to Sault Ste. Marie. You may have to stop for wild animals on the road, such as moose, deer and bears. The biggest downside is if you hit fog. I drove through a week ago by car and the fog was extremely bad from Nipigon to Marathon. If you have a GPS and get caught in fog, turn it on so you get some idea of where the road goes. With no fog the scenery is excellent and the roads good.

    +1 The ride from Thunder Bay to the Sault is a very scenic ride (the Canadian Shield to the North and Lake Superior to the South) with excellent pavement and truck lanes up uphills. I've been able to pace myself (for the most part) so that seldom do I see a vehicle ahead or behind me.

    Walter and Paul are correct, great ride. I did that last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. Some of the nicest scenery in Ontario.
