    depending on where you're coming from, SD50 and US18 across the southern portion of south dakota is a very nice ride.

    look for vermillion, sd and then head west from there.

    custer state park is a great place to ride and camp.

    If you want to avoid crowds, don't go during the Sturgis rally.

    You can get a copy of this map in the Black Hills. http://www.blackhillsbadlands.com/go.asp?ID=205

    I recommend Hwy 16A south of Keystone and through Custer State Park. Needles Hwy is great. Wall Drug in Wall, SD is interesting. And there is Devils Tower.

    July 6, 7, and 8 is the Black Hills BMW Stampede in Spearfish, SD which I recommend.

    The Bad Lands are nice to see but, if you are like me, you will not be there long. Many more interesting places in the area. Needles Highway, the Black Hills, Spearfish canyon and the Crazy Horse monument just to mention a few. Also, for something really neat do the Minuteman Silo tour. (All tours begin at the park headquarters. The headquarters is located on the south side of Exit 131 off Interstate 90 in western South Dakota, beside the BP gas station. This is 75 miles east of Rapid City.)

    I suggest that you alot approximately 30 minutes for visiting with the crusty trail horse ride operator on the, I believe, southern fringe of the Badlands. He is hilarious. Be sure to ask him about the difference between the forty-five minute ride and the hour and a half ride. Also, ask him what type of horses he selects for the operation, if there is any special breed he prefers, and if he has any photographs of that breed.
