    You described your lady as your bride, so I assumed you recently married.

    Well that's an easy mistake to make, although I have always referred to my Bride as my Bride for the past thirty six years.

    Thanks for the video....that is a great ride.

    I did that route last July after the rally in Billings.

    There was a lot more traffic in July, but never a problem.

    Nicely done

    Am I the only one who thinks this road is actually better ridden North to South? Completely different vistas - strange... but in my case... true!

    Most roads are best ridden both ways. The good ones, often.

    Especially true in the mountains, every country. And in the Alps for sure.

    Annie and I have ridden the parkway 8-10 times. On a couple occasions we rode up from the south then turned around and rode the other way. I can't makeup my mind about which direction is the best. We'll have to try it a few more times to see if we can decide. After all, it will be free next year!!
