Iron Butt Saturday!!!
It's official....I got it in!!!!
Took about 18 hours.
Down to about 58f when I went through Chicago and didn't really warm up until Albert Lea.
Took about 5 tanks of gas to complete.
Here's a pic of my new girl at some gas stop north of Madison I think.
The rest is from a Rest Stop in Chamberlain SD and the Missouri River.
What a beautiful view from up there.

Great Pic's! I lived in Montana for 23 years and, your pictures brought back many memories of the times my late wife and I spent biking through the mountains. Spent a lot of time in Red Lodge, Cooke City, Cody and the list goes on. Keep the pictures coming.:)
