Sturgis or Bust 2014 (Day 9)

Day 9 Friday

As we stick our heads out the door to the covered parking it was so nice to see it wasn't raining! 

We have been under a flood watch but thankfully this hasn't come to pass.
Our kick stands were up about the same time as sunrise. I looked at the time and it was 5:56 am.

As we make our way through the mountain towards Sturgis the roads are a bit damp. 

The farther east we go they continue to show signs of rain that has passed through.
Is our leader heading straight towards the rain??!!
Around New Underwood I snap a shot of the skies.

We actually stayed dry!!!!!  

No trip to South Dakota would be complete without a stop at the famous Wall Drug.
We will eat breakfast there.

After we load back up, we make our final tourist stop to The Badlands!  
No trip is complete without riding through them at least.
The overcast skies made the ride through the area very nice.
We stopped and got a few pictures, and then we were back on the bikes with hammer down.

I see a sign that says we are traveling on the Sandhill Scenic Bypass Hwy 2 in Nebraska.
Lots of grasslands and rolling hills to see.
Lunch is in Thedford Nebraska, at a gas station. 
Looks like the only thing out here so we make the best of it and all had subs. 
They were pretty darn tasty too!!  
We have been blessed with mostly cloudy skies to this point and as we get back on the bikes the cloud cover is a little less.

It still extremely good weather for August.
Diana & I are so bored and with all the trains passing we resort to counting boxcars. 
One of the trains had 131 cars.
I told you we were bored!!!!
We r going to ride to York Nebraska and find a place to stop for the night.
The weather has really been perfect today and made this somewhat uneventful ride quite pleasant.
We find rooms in York. 

There is a restaurant next to motel and we walk over there for dinner.
The waitress was young and very witty.
We enjoyed our FNDR in York.

Time to get some rest.
