Rider Missing - Lolo Pass to W. Yellowstone
Donald Masters left Orofino, ID, Monday, August 31, headed for West Yellowstone and then on to Denver. He has not been seen or heard from since. We have reason to believe he may have gone missing Monday (he was due into Denver Wednesday). He was riding a black 2008 Goldwing, Colorado Plate #327-UTH.

If you are riding Lolo Pass, or anywhere between Missoula and W. Yellowstone, please be on the lookout for Donald and his bike. He's 62 years old, weighs about 175 and is about 5'9" tall. His bike would have been loaded with a fair amount of gear as he was on a 2+ week trip. If you have seen him or have information about him or his bike, please call the Clearwater County (ID) Sheriff's Department at (208) 476-4521.

This is a picture of him on the silver Goldwing he owned before getting the black 'Wing earlier this year:



Here's proposed route.

Hi, John.

It's now plastered all over many bike forums. I'm surprised it never got to here yet.
Also, I think the problem got handed to the Montana authorities. Either Missoula, or Lolo. I even wonder if he got "thugged". That's one of the bad parts of riding alone.


Youse guys have a very safe trip, ya hear. Wish I was going, Buttttttttt...........

OMG .........This topic was covered on this forum earlier, what I did't know was, the news that he was found.

Such a sad ending, and my thoughts are with his family and friends.

Redwing,

Donald Masters went off a curve onto forest land. Front wheel jammed into an irrigation ditch, and apparently he departed from the bike and was found some distance away.

No one publicly has said anything about any results of an investigation in the accident.

He was found a little over a week after the accident by a couple of elk hunters.
