The Wandering Sparrow’s Ride from Billings to Reno

J&P Cycles’ own Joe Sparrow A.K.A. Wandering Sparrow, recently rode from Billings, Montana to Reno, Nevada. What Joe encounters never ceases to amaze and inspire a future road trip.  Until then, we continue to live vicariously through him.  The following is a sample of what he saw and who he met along the way.
