Bob, I assume you have done Rocky Mountain NP? Is it worth seeing? I see that it tops out at about 11,500, so weather is critical.

I get up to Rocky Mountain National Park a good number of times during the riding season and I will ride over Trail Ridge Road 2-3 times a year. Trail Ridge Road is the highest continuous paved road in the United States topping out at 12,183 feet. https://www.nps.gov/romo/planyourvis...ridge_road.htm Yes, it is most definitely worth visiting Rocky Mountain National Park. If you come to Colorado in mid to late September you will be here for the prime Fall Foliage viewing as well.

https://www.triumphrat.net/attachmen...8626&thumb=1My 2018 1200 XRt. Planning a trip for July from Portland, OR to Prince George, BC, Jasper and Banff, then back down to Glacier. From there to Rocky Mtn NP, Black Hills, the Badlands, then to WI. Undetermined scenic route to get back to OR. Probably 6500+ miles. Probably a combination of camping and motels. And yes, you should add the Olympic peninsula, the Oregon coast and the Columbia Gorge to your list of places to visit.

Too many places to go and not enough time... I miss my younger vagabon days.

Make sure you stop by the hotel at Lake Louise. It is a site to behold. There is a hostel not too far away or you can camp nearby.

Using my 2012 Street Triple as a touring bike on a 3 week trip through the Canadian Rockies and down the West Coast. I just strapped a duffel to the back on previous trips but this time I finally have a set of panniers.

Beauty pic. Toronto rider here. I intend to fly my T120 to Vancouver and ride back to Toronto at some point in the next few years. Any advice?

Let me know when you booked your ticket! I can highly recommend going North from Vancouver towards Pemberton on the Sea to Sky highway, then follow it to Lilloet. That stretch is called the Duffy Lake Road and absolutely gorgeous! From there I'd go down towards Vernon and take highway 6 into the Kootenays. This area has some of the best riding in all of BC so you can easily spend a couple of days there. My personal favorite is the 31A from New Denver to Kaslo.

If you're making your way east after this you should take highway 3 out of the Kootenays to 95/93 which gets you into Banff National Park. A fun side road on the way to Calgary is the 1A from Canmore.
