Have you ever thought you are making the best out of a day to soon realize that you have to stop and start all over again, loosing not only your time, but your rhythm? lol. Well, that is exactly what happened today!
We were really excited about being on the road so early this morning because we wanted to go through Sturgis, and maybe visit once again the Presidents at Mt. Rushmore. Well, we were already in Sturgis (30 miles from Rapid City), when we stopped to check on the GPS for the Harley Davidson store (we wanted to get a gift for our friend Bill). It was at that moment when Matt realized that we did not have the tank bag with us!!! Oh my goodness!!! PANIC!!! In that bag is all our important documents, passports, etc. We immediately called the hotel and luckily, Mr. Pat has found it outside in the parking lot, and it was waiting for us to be picked up. So, back we went 30 miles to Rapid City, but thankful for finding our so important cargo! Thanks again, Pat!
Back in Sturgis we went to the HD store (it was strange to see a beemer in that parking lot), and drove around town to take a look at the center of the annual bike week. The festivities just ended last week, in fact, we saw hundreds if not thousands of bikes coming back from Sturgis. This time the town looked quiet and calmed. People were back into their normal routine, but still some bikers were roaming around taking a glimpse of that famous place.
Notice the tire marks on the road
Considering that we had visited Mt. Rushmore two years ago, we decided to continue our journey to Billings, MT. It was a beautiful ride. No wind, sunny sky, temperature between 65 and 80 degrees, an absolute enjoyable journey!
