Short but sweet, south dakota

I met with my son in Brush, Colorado on Friday afternoon. We went to Bridge Port in Nebraska when rain caught us and took refuge in one of 2 motels there. Got up the next morning and went to Hill City SD and that afternoon rode to Mt. Rushmore. Left this morning and did 500 miles back. Had a great thousand mile round trip with my son! Just wish we had done it sooner, but later better than never. Right? Anyway, that area of SD needs more than one day to discover what it has to offer. We is going back next year We sure had a great time. Wish I had done it so many years ago. He really thanked me for giving him the course leading to being licensed to drive a mc, and helping him out buying his mc. Made me feel like a million!

I'm jealous. I've been trying to get my Dad back on two wheels for years.

Happiness is a warm motorcycle.

I have a close friend who retired and bought a place in Custer, so me and some other friends go up there 3-4 times a year. Have ridden every paved road in the black hills and some of the dirt ones also. Love going up there, never gets old. Hill City is one of our favorite stops. The Silver Dollar on the south side of town. Great chicken wings and pizza.

We ate at the Silver Dollar I believe. You can dine and drink in an open air patio right on the street. There was a real cute waitress who started singing with a guy along to a Sheryl Crowe duet. They were fantastic. Needless to say, she received a real good tip. Now that I think of it, the hamburger was called a "mangy burger", so maybe it wasn't the Silver Dollar. Still had a great time there.

That is the Mangy Moose. Fun place during bike week.
