Great pictures!

I love the mountains up there...they are real mountains, not the hills around here that they call mountains.

Good report, thank you. Good job running the GSXR, I too run a "hardcore" sportbike for touring, and find it comfortable and perfect for the job. Kudos.

We spent alot of time stopping for scenery today. After all, this is why we are here. The mountains are massive. The mountains we are used to seeing as Californians are more like hills next to these giants. I was completely overwhelmed. They are so huge, it's often difficult to find a spot to focus on. The youngest peak being 525 million years old... Get your mind around that one.

We got to Banff sometime in the late afternoon (Sulphur Mountain in background):

Great pics! Beautiful country - I went to Banff from Vancouver by train in '88 and thoroughly enjoyed it. I imagine that by motorcycle it is even nicer. I recall walking through one of the neighborhoods in Banff early one evening and when we rounded a corner we came upon a huge bull elk munching on somebody's front lawn. He did not look very friendly so we gave him a wide birth!

Banff... I am sure in the old day, it's just an unpretentious town. Today, it's very much an upscale resort town. Nevertheless, people here seemed very friendly and helpful. We had a room at the Rundlestone Lodge -- somewhat lower on the price scalse as it's on the outskirt of the town. It's about 3/4 of a mile from the town center, which isn't far to walk by any means, especially after being on a bike for days. We did pony up a bit for a room with a hot tub... That was hugely popular after the days we spent on bikes. A great way to relax the aches and pains.

That night, it started to rain... and the temp dropped fast...

Day 5, 0 mile on bike

We woke to heavy rain the next morning... That kind of threw a wrench into our sightseeing schedule. Oh, well... Monther Nature doesn't go by anyone's schedule. So, we made the best of the situation by... Renting a small car to get around today.
