BAMS President Diane Ortiz had the pleasure of touring Idaho, Wyoming and Montana on Harley-Davidson motorcycles courtesy of the Idaho Tourism Board. The trip included a loop of Yellowstone National Park. Diane spent time riding the new Harley-Davidson XR1200X and the Sportster 1200 Low. The weather was cold and the group encountered snow on some of the high passes which were closed temporarily due to the cold weather.
