Shhhhh,This month's Sunset magazine's feature story is "The West's Best Places To Live".
Best small town is Bisbee, AZ.
Runner-up is Lander, WY, population 7,642. "Another source of local pride is Lander's surprisingly lively downtown", no doubt lead by those hooligans over at the Kawasaki dealership.

I'd be actually good with moving there. Only problem is I don't have the $$$$ yet!!!Shhhhh,
Be careful who you tell about our little piece of heaven, Tom!
Scratch that! Maybe I ought to ask for all of my dual sport/dirt riding/internet acquaintances to move here! Maybe take back our 'Wild West'!
Thank you Sir. I'll definitely do that. Sorry for just getting back to you. I was traveling for work and just got back in town late last night.sarguy,
I have a friend / riding buddy / customer who formed a new group just this year.
They are on facebook, which I am not.
His name is Keith Collins, from Cody, WY. His group is called 'Absaroka Riders'.
What are you doing next August, 2017?
I think you ought to consider hooking up with Cherokee_Chuck and his gang in Silverton, CO. I'm sure some of them low-landers will just ride the pavement and graded gravel.
If the street bike rider doesn't mind riding thru dirt road construction type stuff for 10 miles (that about average construction zone), He might not mind the easy, graded, passenger car capable, "Wild Horse Tour" leg from the west edge of Green River to Farson, WY. Probably about 40 miles of easy graded gravel.A cpl guys and I plan a ride from Green River to Yellowstone and back.
Any suggestions on routes would be greatly appreciated.
We are interested on back roads with awesome scenery. One rider will be on a street bike,
2 are on KLR's.
That sounds lnteresting and fun. The rider on street bike rides dualsports also so this is perfect.If the street bike rider doesn't mind riding thru dirt road construction type stuff for 10 miles (that about average construction zone), He might not mind the easy, graded, passenger car capable, "Wild Horse Tour" leg from the west edge of Green River to Farson, WY.

Then to Pinedale, Hoback Junction, Jackson & beyond, on asphalt.
Jackson, WY over Teton Pass to Victor, ID and up to Ashton, ID & take old highway past Mesa Falls is a beautiful route to West Yellowstone.
If you have time, go out the North East gate to Cook City, MT over Beartooth Pass to Red Lodge, MT.
Closest thing to "Alps" type twisty road at 10,000+ ft in USA.
