70th Annual Black Hills Rally and Races, August 2010

We woke up to an absolutely gorgeous day in South Dakota. Not too hot, not too cold. Well rested and a great latte prepared by Tanya (yes, she brought her latte machine and special blend of coffee with her), and we were ready to roll. I was pleasantly surprised by the lack of traffic. I had spoken to a few people on their way home from Sturgis and had been led to believe that there were more than 1.250 million attendees. Well, if there were that many people they had sure thinned out by Friday.

These photos are primarily of Main Street in Sturgis, although we did need to make a quick visit to Black Hills Harley-Davidson in Rapid City to take care of an electrical short with the Limited’s tail light.

The Final Leg of the Ride to the Black Hills Rally

Thursday did not quite go as planned. I started off in Cheyenne, WY and should have been able to make it to Piedmont, SD (my destination) in five hours. Unfortunately, within minutes of leaving Cheyenne I knew there was something physically wrong with me as I had very little muscle control. Unfortunately, as I mentioned the other day, once you leave civilization in Wyoming you are pretty much committed to continuing on until you reach another big town. It just so happens that there were no other big towns coming up until I hit Rapid City, SD and I knew that was not going to happen in my present condition.

I ended up making it about 30 miles out of town before I decided to turn around and head to a hospital for a saline drip. I felt much better, and cooler, after doing that and continued on my way. This caused a four or five hour delay, so it was getting dark by the time I arrived in Piedmont. It was good to be there and to see my honey.

The ride from Grand Junction to Denver, CO

Wednesday morning, I continued my ride to the 70th Annual Black Hills Rally and Races from Grand Junction, CO. I was doing well on the amount of miles traveled per day, so I was able to stop a little more frequently and enjoy the Colorado beauty found along I-70. This included going through the Eisenhower Tunnel, which is over 11,000 feet in elevation. This resulted in the temperatures dropping to the high 70’s and low 80’s. After spending the last few days in the high 90’s and low triple digits I had to bundle up with a long sleeved shirt and warm gloves.

I did stop outside of Denver to join one of my brothers for an early dinner. The food was okay, but I got there at shift change or something, so my medium rare steak ended up being well done. Oh well, the company and spaghetti were good. After dinner, I continued on to Cheyenne, WY. Only 320 miles to go!
