Custer State Park; Curves, Gravel & Mt. Rushmore

Today we rode through Custer State Park and we can say it is all it’s cracked up to be.  Significant twisties, deserted gravel roads and wildlife abound.  Had a great time until we hit thunderstorms and headed for home.

Phone From Car?


Not sure what this means.  Use a chicken to phone from your car?  That’s a smart chicken.  Or does it mean you can call the chicken from your car?

It’s 1982 Again!

As we were walking around Libertyville, IL, we spotted this beauty.  I owned the same bike, a 1982 Suzuki GS1000E back in the day, even the same color.
