I have always wanted to travel the Nez Perce Trail by motorcycle. I have set aside ten (10) days to do this trip in September 2016. When I plotted it, I gulped hard. 3,140 miles with plenty of gravel and dirt roads thrown in for good measure.

Averaging 314 miles a day. Is this crazy?

The map above is a rough example of the ride minus the trip from Reno to Joseph, OR and the return from Chinook, MT.
