    Thought I'd post up a few shots I took last weekend... did a quick trip out to the Black Hills on Saturday, rode all day Sunday, then came through the Badlands on the way home on Monday. It's a 400 mile ride to that end of the state from where I live.

    Awesome trip, but then again, any time I get solo time on the bike, I'm in heaven. :D Had some rain/mist/fog on Saturday starting at the halfway point (Winner, SD) but not too bad. It was in the upper 40's by the time I got into Rapid City around 4pm Saturday. Brrrr. Sunday was beautiful, and Monday was a little cool and windy. Ended up with a strong tail wind on the ride east and managed to get 52mpg.

    Pictures: Town of Scenic on the west side of the Badlands, Air Museum at Ellsworth AFB in Rapid City, Mt. Rushmore.

    Here are a couple more photos from Badlands Natl Park. The last photo is at the overlook along SD44 where it crosses the Missouri River.

    Yes, those are some good pictures!

    I rode South on Hwy 5 ( California ) a couple of days ago. Not a single thing worth taking pictures of. Still a good ride!

    Cheers!

    Great pictures, looks like a good time. We did part of the park on horseback when I was a scout, brings back memories. Thanks for posting.
