    Planning a trip for this summer starting in Denver Co. heading to Rocky Mountain NP, then northeast into Wyoming and on to Sturgis SD.
    Looking for good advise on rides and sightseeing stops we should be making in those areas.
    Also after Sturgis we will be riding back to South Florida via Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Tennessee. Planning on hitting Kansas City, St Louis, Memphis. Any ideas on great rides and stops along that route would be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    This is a pretty good site for planning a trip through the states you will be riding in. I'm sure some of the members who live in those areas or have ridden in them have more.

    If you get a chance to hit pikes peak it's worth the ride. At 14,000 ft the view is amazing.
    Airs a little thin up there and even in the middle of the summer it's cool so a coat would be advised.
    At the top there's a snack shop to get food if you want, make sure to bring the camera.

    If you have never rode in the mountains you'll be in for a treat, And i'm not talking about the hills in South Dakota.

    too a trip from florida to Edmonton Alberta, Jasper, banff national parks, was some of the most scenic riding Ive experienced. Colorado a close second, Montana, Wyoming awesome as well but a different kind of beauty, put 8k on the bike, ready for another X country excursion
