What a wonderful 4TH of July weekend we had up here in the beautiful Black Hills. Sunday, we rode our motorcycles down to Hot Springs to see our friends Bob and Cindy. The weather was just perfect. Before we left on our trip, JRoger told me I could ride his 2008 Harley Road King with a side Car.
Here is a picture of us on his Bike after our ride. I enjoyed riding JRoger's Bike and he had his first ride as a "Monkey" in the Sidecar. It’s a nice ride!
Ms. Pat and I are ready to roll. Here we come Bob and Cindy…..
Here we are out in the Park with our picnic lunch strapped on the luggage carrier in an insulated bag.
We visited Bob and Cindy at the KOA in Hot Springs where we had our picnic lunch in their beautiful new motorhome along with some additional side dishes by Cindy. Then we all decide to take off on a ride. Above is Jrogers Bike and Cindy’s Honda Gold Wing Trike. Bob has a Trike almost identical to Hers.
As we were getting ready to leave, Bob told me I could ride his Honda Trike if I would like to. Sure...I jumped at the chance, so we switched Trikes. Bob was quite excited, too, as this would be his first ride on a Harley!
Here we are cruising at about 55 mph on Bob’s Honda. Ms. Pat gives the “Thumbs up”. She likes the comfort of the plush passenger's seating with arm rests and all.
As we continued on through Custer State Park, Susan took this picture from her seat in the sidecar with Bob ahead, then Cindy and us in the lead. We headed on to our place after traveling over 100 fun miles for our traditional “Happy Hour”. WOW!! What a trip!! This would be our last visit with Bob & Cindy for a while. They were leaving to return home on Monday because Bob had to go back to work on Tuesday. They are looking forward to becoming "full-timers" soon.
The next day was the 4TH of JULY. We decided on another bike ride up to Hill City to the Prairie Berry Winery, home of the famous “Red Ass Rhubarb Wine”. Then on over the mountain past Mt. Rushmore, down Iron Mountain Road, through Custer State Park and back home. Another 70 mile ride!
Here we are standing under the sign, just for proof that such a place really exists. JRoger is the photographer this time. Hey!! The Wine isn’t bad either!!
We had a very, enjoyable ride and almost got wet as it started lightly raining as we pulled into the Barn...just in time. Many, more pictures but this Blog is way longer than I like them so it will wait for another day. But, we are having a ball!
It is a GREAT WEEK!!!!
It seems the Flooring people have a problem. They can’t find the special kind of adhesive needed to glue it down.. Even the factory was completely out……supposed to be here on the 14TH and we hope installation will be shortly thereafter. Shucks......always something.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you all had a SUPER Holiday. God Bless AMERICA, MY HOME SWEET HOME !!
