First, always gas up when you can. Minimal traffic the day I rode. Roadway in good condition, scenery is great with adequate pull offs for pictures.

We took a 2 week trip to Colorado, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho via motorcycles. This was the most amazing road we were on. Such beautiful scenery! Nice sweeping curves and the pavement was smooth. Definitely want to ride it again and again!
