Sounds like a great ride. I've never ridden out in SD before. My dad has and said it was one of the most beautiful places he's ever been. All I did this weekend was ride from Daytona Beach or Orlando a few times.

Yea I rode Tucson-Phoenix-Tucson this weekend. It was probably 350-400 miles for the whole weekend. As always, beautiful weather here, except the bugs were out in full force. I was surprised I went over 160 miles before switching to the reserve. I guess when you over pay prepaying for gas, and you have to squeeze a dollar in a already full tank you will get some extra miles. Put 11 dollars in a tank that wasnt completely empty.

I got about 250mi. in. It was a great weekend for riding, although it wouldn't bother me at all if it rained for a week. First Forest fire of the year on sunday and it will only get worse. Forest service will no doubt ban offroad vehicle traffic and open fires soon. Takes the fun out of camping if you can't have a fire.

Man I am just thinking how much fun it was to ride this weekend. It was open highway with little traffic. I decided I am going to wave to every biker even if they dont wave, have HDs or rockets. I also invented a game while riding with no one around to make my friend driving his tuck laugh. Line driving. Only drive on the white lines and yellow lines, while on a divided highway and no other traffic. Signal as you change lanes but change lines instead! HAHA, give you three "lanes" to play with.

Got gas here at home, then rode another 30 or so mile to elmira NY, then back to waverly PA, back up to ithaca... This morning, I drove around 60 miles to go get tires for the bike... it will be at the stealer for a week or so till I get a chance to go get it.... Very fun ride, and a great weekend for a ride... I think it got up to 75 degrees or so today and Sunday....

Little over 100 up and down the bluffs along the mississippi. Dodge county WI needs to invest in a street sweeper, the sand on the twisties sneeks up FAST! :shock:

I put over 300 miles on the X this weekend. Rode around local Saturday and Sunday we rode down to Charlotte to ride in the Ricky Hendricks Charity ride. Over 1000 bikes showed up and it was a blast. We met at Carolina place mall and rode to Hendrick Motorsports(big group ride) for free food, good band and they had the museum open to tour. Here are some pictures from the event.

Just around town a little bit running errands. I've ridden that route around Sturgis and Nemo, and love it. I won't be able to make it back to Belle Fourche this summer (first time in my life), and I sure am going to miss riding the hills!
