Cheyenne, WY to Piedmont, SD

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!

The Road To Sturgis

Torrance, CA to Grand Junction, CO

2010 was the 70th Annual Black Hills Rally & Races in Sturgis, S.D. The last time I went was in 2006 and I swore I would never return due to the amount of people that were now attending. If they all came on motorcycles instead of dragging them along on trailers it would not be so bad, but Sturgis just was not built for one million people. Since I got a new bike, and the price of gas went up, I figured it would cut down on the number of RV’s and trailers, so I gave it another shot. Tanya drove out from Indiana to meet me, and we did not get there until Thursday, so any crowds had thinned out significantly.

I did not take many photos the first couple of days as I needed to get some miles in so I could arrive in time to meet Tanya. This gallery consists of pictures taken in Las Vegas and Mesquite, NV as well as along I-70 in Utah. I spent my second evening in Grand Junction, CO.
