Cool Gsxrgirrl does Banff, Alberta

Earlier this year, I had this craving to see huge mountains. So, a plan was hatched to make a 10-day run for Banff, Alberta. It would also give gsxrgirrl a chance to visit her country, Canada, and the mountains she grew up with. Why just 10 days? I wish I could do more days, but it’s just not possible to be away any longer than 10 days consecutively for my job. Eventually, the plan evolved to be a birthday-ride for one of our best riding buddies as well, and we were scheduled to leave first week of July with 4 other riders. However, due to last-minute work obligation, gsxrgirrl and I weren’t able to make the July departure date. The two of us had to move our trip back a couple of months to the end of August. We left Hercules/Pinole on 8/26, and returned on 9/4. In that time, we logged 3,137 miles on the odometer. Meet some real nice people. Saw amazingly huge mountains and scenery. Had great eats along the way. We had a blast. Hope you will enjoy the pics.

The route:
