Today would amount to a fast cruise east on Interstate 90 across South Dakota. For Tammy, this required a few tunes (John Cougar?) from the headset. I'd look back and see her head bobbing from side to side and she wouldn't respond when spoken to. She was either tired of me or enjoying the music or both.
I really enjoyed this trip because my wife Tammy went with me. I had done the trip in 2006 alone and could only tell her or show her thru pictures what an Alaska trip on a motorcycle was like. You truly need to experience it to appreciate the vastness, the breath taking scenery, the daily changing conditions, and the array of people you interact with. We found that being on a motorcycle let us meet people we'd never be approached by if just sitting in a car. These fellow riders and motorists really added to the character and memories from our trip.
