Here are some best of photos.
I left on July 4, arrived in Minneapolis evening of the 5th to see the Twins play the Rangers.
Reason why is I'm trying to visit all Major League stadiums and Target Field just happened to be sort of on the way to Wyoming

Then 6th to 10th visited MT Rushmore, Devils Tower, Custards Last Stand, Beartooth Pass, Yellowstone, Glacier National Park, several saloons and the way, way backwoods of Montana where I actually watched a grizzly run across the road in front of me.

Headed home on the 19th from San Francisco with a brief stop at the Bonneville Salt Flats to throw salt all over the bike on an impromptu speed run!
Across America i was lucky enough to ride in a cool pocket of air that was moving east with me. In Kansas the temps were 80 degrees with low humidity and I rode that all the way back to DC
