If you haven't been there yet, you need to make it a point to go to Mt Rushmore. Words just can't describe it.
It's an experience like no other. It's not just the rally, it's the whole package when you get out there. There is just so much to see and do. I'm afraid though that Sturgis has ruined all other rallies for me. I don't think there will ever be another one that will compare to it. Awesome roads out there, the people were fantastic, etc, etc, etc. I hope to make it back out there some day. On the trip out there, I thought to myself that this would be a one time only trip. I don't think that anymore. And I'm not even upset about the flat tire, lens cover taking flight, getting rained on, losing my rainsuit, ,etc. It was all part of the experience. Just absolutely fantastic.Absolutly thought your venture was great and interesting. Reading has made me start planning for next year. I have always wanted to go but you made it sound great!
Thanks for posting!
