Thursday morning kicked off with rain, cold, and concern as riders were given a choice of going over the famous Logan’s Pass through Glacier National Park or a secondary, lower section of the park due to concerns for the old machine struggling over steep inclines, the descending declines with little to no braking power, and possible weather though the upper route, but none of the riders were daunted. Everyone took the high road and were rewarded with glorious vistas and an incredible riding experience. As the international group of motorcyclists stood at the half-way point and enjoyed the brilliant fall foliage against the breathtaking mountainscapes, riders expressed their appreciation for the opportunity to experience the magnificence of Mother Nature’s splendor. For the staff who had to backtrack the route for stragglers and came in late themselves, their experience included snowfall. Otherwise, riders just arrived at the evening finish in Kalispell, Montana rain soaked but elated over the day’s ride.
