Upon returning from my Sturgis run, I have been reflecting on all the things I saw and did. I rode CA, NV, AZ, UT, WY, ID, MT, SD, WA, OR. I hit the coast, desert, mountains, and cities (almost got killed in Portland but my ABS saved my bacon). Rode through heat, rain, and snow on the Beartooth Highway. Visited Yellowstone for a full day for the first time and took most every back highway we could find vs. the Interstate system (until the return trip home that is). We went to the Battlefield of the Little Bighorn and Custer's Last Stand Hill. Once in the Sturgis area, we went through Custer State Park, Needles Highway, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Hill City, Deadwood, FTS, no-panty Wed in Heulett, and certainly there is more I can't remember. During a post ride dinner with my riding pals, 4 of whom were from S. Africa, I found I had several. I have a favorite location (Crazy Horse), ride (Needles Highway), thing (camaraderie among our group). It's one of those things where you just can't explain what it's like to ride 12 days straight, some days for me were over 900 miles and 15 hours on the bike, through all weather climates and exceeding 5000 miles. Sore butt; you bet, but mind was exercised and I came home decompressed from everyday life. This has been one of the best vacations I've ever had. I say all this yet am trying to pose the question of, in a limited amount of words, what stands out as your highlight during the Black Hills Rally? Deadwood? Mt. Rushmore? Crazy Horse? Spearfish Canyon? Do tell, because I'm going to go back and would like to expand my opportunities to see new things.
