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.

We took Iron Mountain road and there are a few tunnels cut through the mountains that were so well planned that you can see Rushmore through the tunnel.
Faith had been saying all day that she wanted to see buffalo so I was relieved when we found these herds. These might have been the only two sightings of the day. We might go back tomorrow as part of our sightseeing trip because it won't take us too far out of our way and we're hoping to see a lot more wildlife.
We found this one that came very close to the road even though we were sitting there with the trike running. It seems that they've gotten used to the visitors.
Here they are coming in from the fields because they heard a bunch of vehicles in the area. It was really something to see as they seemed so tame because they expected to be fed. Lots of people were there and the feeding frenzy began. Then the donkeys headed up the road.
So it was only an 86 mile day but we had no interstates to deal with and lots of really cool stuff to do and see so this was truly a wonderful day..
Hopefully the first of many.
