I started this blog because I love to take motorcycle trips both local and around the country. And I love finding that roadside attraction or quaint town and of course the best places to eat. So I'd like to share my adventures with friends old and new. And I would like to hear about yours. Feel free to share. What's the nicest ride you've ever taken? The most scenic ride? The longest ride? Rallies you've been to with thousands or a solo ride? The town you fell in love with? The food that you'd go back for? Talk about the motorcycle shops along the way. We all love a warm friendly face. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, so use them to help others share your experience.

The day started out kinda misty with a very slight drizzle now and then so we donned the rain gear and started our day. The skies stayed cloudy and a bit cool but the rains didn't come.
So here is Faith posing for a photo op with Cornelius.
But again it was time to leave the fun and games behind and push on.
The ride from here was a combination of good and bad.
Good because the weather turned and it got sunny and warm. Perfect for riding. But there was a brisk wind from the north and when you hit those vast open spaces that wind can really knock you around and it was affecting the speed and the mileage of the trike. We both took a beating from the wind and it just takes a lot out of you.
When we got to our hotel, it was quite a job scrubbing them off the fenders and fairings but Faith did a great job.
It's chock full of shops and you can buy just about anything you need in Wall Drug. The signs advertising Wall Drug start over 300 miles away along the highway and they tell you what you'll find at the store.
So a rather long ride at 328 miles but we're finished with the long days for a while and looking forward to a week in the Sturgis area to do some sightseeing and relaxing.
Check back again because I'm sure the posts will get longer with more pics and some great stories.
