US-212, the Beartooth Highway, is an amazing stretch of road from Yellowstone's northeast entrance at Silver Gate, MT, to Red Lodge, MT. Fabulous views including a u-profile valley scraped out by a glacier. I've stayed in the Forest Service campgrounds where each little lake has hungrier brook trout than the previous one. Be careful on the road--some curves have no run-off, just big drops.

I rode the Beartooth on a heavily laden ST1300. Why? Frank Sinatra sang this to me:
"I've lived a life that's full. I've travelled each and every highway".

I agree, the Beartooth is one of the best highways for motorcycles in this country IMHO. Along with Rt 12 in Idaho, Rt 34 near Estes Park, Colorado and well you get the idea. Be careful and watch for all the wildlife. It is difficult to concentrate on the road with all the great scenery and lack of traffic.

I wouldn't call it a tail of Dragon, there are some switchbacks but not as many and they are not places as close.

If you are in the area check Chief Joseph, we camped on Beartooth and IMHO Chief Joseph is more spectacular. Just watch for the bear, we had to stop and watch a cub running to the edge of the road and back to mom trying to figure out if it is safe to cross. And when at the top of Beartooth pass stop at the top and look down there is a frozen lake over there.

And Lamar river valley is the best place to see buffalo, if you come in the morning or afternoon during their feeding time you will see thousands of them

There was quite a bit of traffic when I went over, mostly going South (or whichever way it runs from Montana). I was headed South and must have passed dozens of cars, many of which pulled right over or slowed down when they saw a bike closing on them from the back. Then I'd stop to see the view and pass them again. A little embarassing but quick. Beautiful scenery there.

No comparison. Tail of the dragon is OK. Beartooth is "epic."

A friend and I rode over the Beartooth this summer. We had clouds and fog for a good chunk of it (missed most of the wide open views) and rain coming down into Yellowstone.
