Wine Country - Lake Seneca, Finger Lakes Region

Riding around Lake Seneca on our Harley-Davidson we stopped to shoot this
photo of the lake. As we continued on we also had the opportunity to visit
 the Glenora Winery. So relaxing...this is what life should be about.

Watkin's Glen NY Finger Lakes

Marina on Lake Seneca 
The fist day we arrived in the Finger Lakes, we took a sunset boat cruise on Lake Seneca.  We rode our motorcycle to Watkins Glen and took this picture at the marina before our boat ride.

Wisconsin Tractors

The morning we were waiting to load our Harley-Davidson aboard the SS Badger, there were also 30 to 50 tractors beginning to board the ferry. They had been attending a tractor convention in Michigan and were returning back to Wisconsin. When they initially rolled onto the ship, one side tilted greatly from the weight. Once they were evenly displaced, the ship leveled out.  It was nice seeing them knowing they are the ones that feed America and much of the world. Hats off to all of America's farmers.
Thank You

Aladdin Wyoming

When returning from Devil's Tower in Wyoming we and a hundred
other Harley-Davidson enthusiasts decided to stop at the only general store in Aladdin WY for a cold drink.
There was an older couple running the store and I think the bikers made their day.

Deadwood South Dakota

We saw this gun fighter outside a saloon in Deadwood SD.  Deadwood's main street has several historic sites including this Old West saloon.  There are people dressed  in period costumes along the street who stay in character and are willing to have photos taken.  It definitely adds to the charm of this old mining town.

San Antonio Texas

We visited San Antonio Texas during the River Walk festival.
Great time and some of the nicest people you will ever meet.
 Buckhorn Saloon & Museum and the Alamo.

Mt Rushmore South Dakota

This is a view of Mount Rushmore coming from Keystone.  Here you can see a line of Harley-Davidson motorcycles pulled over to take in the grand view.

Harley-Davidson Motorcycles in Deadwood

While at the Sturgis rally we stopped in an old mining town called Deadwood which got its name from dead trees in the area.  It was the home of some famous old west characters including Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane.  The day we arrived in town was perfect.  Motorcycles lined the streets as far as you could see.  Kevin Costner has a restaurant and casino in town called the Midnight Star where we got some great buffalo burgers. 

Hard Body

Having some fun on the Outer Banks of North Carolina at the Outer Banks Harley-Davidson Shop in Elizabeth City, NC. Very friendly staff... although this girl was a little stiff.
She was firm as wood.
