    I have always liked to ride out in the 'wide open spaces'. A long strech of empty highway is quite nice, thank you. Let's see some of your pictures from the open road.

    Man, I love the High Plains, it's just gorgeous country with wide-open spaces. But DAMN the roads suck!!! My son attends college in Grand Forks, NoDak so last May I rode out to see him. This is Highway 85 just north of Belle Fourche, SoDak:

    [​IMG]

    The Black Hills are just chock full of fantastic twisties, but once you head north it's like this for literally 300 miles. I hit Highway 2 in NoDak and it's like this for another 350 miles to Grand Forks. After visiting my son I turned around and rode back the same way. Over 1,300 miles and literally only two turns; it wore the center out of my rear tire so badly that the belts were showing and I still had probably 85% left on the edges! Look how square that thing is! The kind folks at Sturgis BMW helped me deal with this little surprise:

    They were very busy hosting an open house but dropped everything to get a new tire on for me and get me back on the road. Outstanding service! :thumb
