I started this blog because I love to take motorcycle trips both local and around the country. And I love finding that roadside attraction or quaint town and of course the best places to eat. So I'd like to share my adventures with friends old and new. And I would like to hear about yours. Feel free to share. What's the nicest ride you've ever taken? The most scenic ride? The longest ride? Rallies you've been to with thousands or a solo ride? The town you fell in love with? The food that you'd go back for? Talk about the motorcycle shops along the way. We all love a warm friendly face. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, so use them to help others share your experience.

Wednesday / Thursday

 Wednesday was kind of a do nothing lazy sort of day. We thought that we'd run out to Copper Canyon Harley. This is where the rally festivities would take place over the weekend but we wanted to check out the place and the merchandise before the crowds.
 Then a nice breakfast at a place recommended by the staff at Copper Canyon. They were right on. Good breakfast at reasonable prices is what we're always looking for.

Then we just rode aimlessly around the town of Butte. It's an old town steeped in history of copper mines and fortunes made.
 Near the outskirts of town we came across this field filled with flags. Right near an old mining derrick. I know that Faith loves to photograph American flags so I had to stop to get a few shots for her. We didn't see any signs about what was going on but there was a stage set up in the background so something was probably scheduled for later in the day. It was just an awesome sight !

Dinner later that day at Fred's Mesquite Grill. I still gotta say, we've been very lucky with the places we found for meals. Fred didn't let us down.

Then it was back to camp because we had to start getting the trailer ready to trade on Thursday. It was just a matter of getting the cabinets emptied and we moved everything to the toy box section hoping that the change would be smooth and fast.

So on Thursday it was up and on the road. We parked the bikes near the campground office so they could watch them for us and headed for Missoula again. Got to Bretz around 11 for our 11:30 appointment and they pulled the trailer in and went to work. Some of the things coming off the old to be installed on the new took a little time and we found that we were there most of the day. Not a problem, though, because we did a little shopping and eating to kill the time. So with a brand new trailer that included an extra bathroom in the back, we got back to camp in time for a bite and some relax time.
