Thinking of a trip out west. Your fav (non-MTB) trails in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming?
Wifey don't EMTB!

Thanks guys! We are enjoying the west in Montana but not many non-EMTB trails. Wifey and I tried a service road on our Allant+7 near Red Lodge and had fun but it got way too rocky for her. Loving it otherwise. Overall pretty hazy but the Beartooth Pass (10,946’) is not to be missed!
I’m surprised at the lack of any wildlife this visit. Having a great time if not the best conditions with the major haze.The Montana paths/trails tend to be dominated by ATVs which means rocky washboards. Also, I found (in recent weeks) that some have been closed off with barbed wire, etc.
No moose on Trail of the CDA? Mom + young one have been routinely sighted in recent weeks!
I lived in WA and ID for many years and spent a ton of time in Tetons/Yellowstone areas. Went thru Yellowstone a few days ago and was shocked at the change in how few wildlife there was. Probably under 100 buffalo total and they were in small groups far off in the distance. That’s it. No pronghorn, elk, deer, etc. to be seen. It’s not a place I’d ride on the roads much with so much traffic, even with all the kids back in school. It’s a beautiful part of the country but the grand vistas are far less impressive with this level of constant haze.I'm wondering if wildlife noticeably would lay low in that modest of haze (judging by your pictures.) Bees are "smoked" before being worked so they go into the hive and gorge on honey thus becoming more docile. Last year we had smoke around us so thick you couldn't see over a mile or so and the feral cats that have adopted us acted radically different during that time.
Fun to think of traveling beautiful areas of the states and touring out from there on ebikes Dallant. I have always noticed I miss so much buzzing through at 55 or 80 mph.
The Grand Tetons just outside Jackson Hole WY on the way north to Yellowstone National Park.That's an incredible view. I've always wanted to see the Montana and Idaho areas. It just makes you feel like that's exactly what biking is all about - the great outdoors
Edit: I forgot to mention how nice the mountains are. Those are the rockies right?
Very nice photos in spite of the haze.Thanks guys! We are enjoying the west in Montana but not many non-EMTB trails.

I bought a ramp but didn’t bring it on this trip. I can do it (lift the 50+ lb Allants) without it but I have a pair of ramps for the future and other uses. The set I bought from Amazon are tough enough to load a JD lawn tractor in my Silverado. Certainly not $60 anymore.Would you mind showing truck storage?
Would like like a link to about a 5lb, $60 ramp 6 feet long? I think it's rated for 400lb motorcycle.
