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.
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.
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.

That sounds lnteresting and fun. The rider on street bike rides dualsports also so this is perfect.
We'll be out there for 2 weeks and Thanks for your help! Anyone in the area is welcome to ride along with us.

If you guys go thru Pinedale WY, I'll suggest a 15-20 mile 'Dead-End' Detour from the eastern side of town.

Take an hour, to ride North to Fremont Lake & up its east side on Skyline Drive to the end of the asphalt. Well worth the curvy road & the views for pics.
