Cross winds were fairly strong too.

Early start tomorrow heading to the Badlands, and on to Rapid City.
What bike did you rent? Ride safe Sir Fire Marshall Ken..

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

Doug - I rented a BMW, same model as mine.

Just checked in the motel in Rapid City. Big thunderstorm just rolled in. The Badlands were amazing. Got rained on before and after going through the park. The good thing is you can see it coming from miles away. Will post some pics later tonight.
