Most of Montana is so flat you can watch your dog run away for three days.

Not having been to Montana, I never figured it for flat.
I thought nothing was flatter than Lubbock, Texas. There you can see a weed growing from 90 miles away.

True lots of Eastern MT has its share of flat. This was up on the ranch last weekend outside of Livingston. And while there stop in at Neptunes and Katabatic breweries.

We were based out of a cabin near Lincoln for the week. We are headed home now.

1745 miles roundtrip and in 8 days. No hiccups, no wrenching and no troubles other then discovering my rear door hinge bushes are worn out! Another successful trip logged into the books. Highest fuel economy achieved was 25.1 mpg and lowest was ~22.

Lincoln, must have gone over Stemple Pass? Did you take Priest Pass to Helena? Some beautiful country that a way.

My 110 has not been to any shop during my ownership....only one person to blame when something does go wrong!

Never made it over to Helena. I came from Portland and crossed through Idaho on 12 (lolo pass). 12 is nice semi quiet road with a gradual elevation gain which the 110 seems to do quite well on. Went across the same way last year on my return from the Mcgruder corridor.
