Never trust airlines where a a change of plane is required, even with same airline and business class, to get your bags on the same plane and to the same destination at the same time as you :rolleyes

OK your intrepid traveller checking in as got WiFi
we left yellowstone headed to Gillette this was epic as we for got to fuel before leaving so I can confirm a gold wing will do 162 miles on half a tank boy were we running on fumes
Gillette is a transit city just loads people who are just passing through
we left Gillette fully fueled and headed to sturgis which was freeway all the way speed limit 85 so made good time sturgis was buzzing all big company specialising in every thing harley we stayed a bit and bought tee shirts then headed off to mount Rushmore this was amazing so frickin huge did the self stuff and headed down needles highway into cuter Nat park are stop hear was a colonial house in hot springs it was very cool laid back place
next bit was through nebraska as we headed south 111 degrees here bloody hot and arrow strieght roads
from nebraska we headed south into denier hitting it smack in rush hour nite mare
it was slow and hot very hot we crashed are motel 8 exhausted 9pm
so new day and time off the bike to visit cheyyanne zoo and would recommend it really cool
so on down to us 50 dodging rain clouds with a lot success lol temp in the 90s
we did big horn pass and monarch mountain taking in the contintial divide
were now in gunnison and tried to do black Rock canyon but a serious thunder storm ended that
the WiFi is poor in the USA the piccies I uploaded to 30mins each so going to add pictures later
if you want to see progress in photos find me on Facebook (Luke gibson)

Looks like you had (?) a fantastic trip Luke. Are you back then?

None of it will compare to the stunning scenery and amazing roads you will experience if you come on the LOFOs ride on Sunday though  :lol


You're not afraid of squirrels are you?  :eek  :lol
