We awoke to heavy cloud cover and fog, with rain threatening. But once again, we outran most of the inclement weather and enjoyed a long day of riding, straight across the state of SD. We had a couple of hiccups along the way: Kevin's bike developed a strange noise, which as yet has not been determined. Gas stations are at a premium along I-90, so word of warning...fill up often.
We stopped in Wall and visited Badlands H-D (got a tee-shirt). Stopped again in Rapid City and picked up some necessaries at the H-D dealer. Then we made the final push toward Custer and the lodge. We got side-tracked in Hill City: their Main Street was filled with bikes...imagine that.
We saw the aftermath of an accident that had at least two victims: bikers. Sobering! The remainder of the ride was uneventful and we arrived at the lodge around 5:30 pm.
What shall we do tomorrow?
Tune in and see.
