2100 miles - Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Canada, Washington - break in ride

I broke in my new BMW R1200RT with a 2100 mile ride from the Oregon coast to Baker City, Oregon, a night in Kamiah, Idaho, then Highway 12 into Montana, up to Kalispell, a day at Glacier National Park, back west with a small loop into Canada, west across Washington with a jaunt through Mount Rainier National Park and back to the Oregon coast.

A long trip report but also a long trip. The full trip report here: July 2017 Ride Report

My route:

The bike was a dream to ride. Temperature was hot and I was in full gear. No mishaps and a lot of fun.

You didn't stop in and say HI when you went through my town.

Seriously, nice "Run In" ride, (BMW does not Break I was told!) There are times, a few, that I miss my old '97 RT.

Beautiful Ride

Thanks for the post. I'll be doing the Lolo Pass and the Going to the Sun rides next month, so thanks for fanning the flames of desire. Veronica800 can't wait to follow in your tracks!

I have done the Missoula loop twice in the heat and awoke to 24 degree temps in Enterprise. You are well equipped for it, I was not, but that's all part of the adventure. According to TE Lawrence pain is good. I have not yet been to the GTTS road, I need to. Great thread and I really appreciate the food tips as I am a complete failure at picking eating spots. Chicken Fahitas are one of my favorites, even several days in a row. Thanks for taking us along on the ride, really enjoyed it.
