Mid-Hudson Chapter

Rose's Mount Rushmore Birthday Tour

May 31st - June 8th, 2014

We covered 10 States in 9 days
but we were in South Dakota 5 days,  Monday thru Friday.
We rode over 4,100 miles thru 3 time zones but never rode at night.
Two riders received fat lips from hail.
We just missed 2 tornado's.
Our only breakdown was a kickstand spring.

Tom is really giving that Indian a dirty look.

SCRC424
Ya know what they say... "behind every good Indian is a crazy women."

SCRC424
So I've heard it said, if you can ride a buffalo you can ride a hog.

SCRC424
Bumpin Buffalo for some dinner.

SCRC424

SCRC424
Oh yeah, Needles Highway Rocks, pun intended!

SCRC424
Have ya ever seen cooler motorcycle parking?

SCRC424
 Scotch on the rocks,  love on the rocks, play on the rocks.
(lil Neil Diamond lingo there).

SCRC424
Sometimes when you play on the rocks you get to see things like this pickup just fitting through.

SCRC424
Oh I get it, Needles Highway.
I guess it looks like the eye of a needle.

SCRC424
To me it looks like a pelican, I'm just say'n.

SCRC424
Beautiful place, beautiful people, beautiful weather, doesn't get much better.

SCRC424
Wow what a great picture.

The tunnel you see is high enough for a 10 story building. Mount Rushmore can fit on Crazy Horse's head.

SCRC424
This sculpture is what Crazy Horse Monument is being scaled from and will look like when completed.

SCRC424
All started with one man, a jack hammer and a dream.

SCRC424
The other side of Crazy Horse.

SCRC424
Rose was fortunate enough to get a ride up to the arm for an up close and personal experience of Crazy Horse.

SCRC424

SCRC424
Looking on trying to figure out where Rose & Kurt are going.

SCRC424

SCRC424
Wildlife loop here we come

SCRC424
Your not a buffalo move on!

SCRC424
This is why they are called "Begging Burrows."

SCRC424
They say if you look them in the eye they will surround you.

SCRC424
Oh crap its true.

SCRC424

SCRC424
Feeling vulnerable on a motorcycle.
They say Buffalo weight more than hogs, I'm just say'n.
Horney looking too, looks kinda devilish.

SCRC424
This and the hail storm are the only times I wished we were in a car.

SCRC424
Because it's funny!

SCRC424
Let's face it going home isn't as exciting as going there.
