In 2005, Kenny and I headed west to visit Mount Rushmore. He on his 3 week old Triumph Speed Triple and me on my 98′ Kawasaki ZX6R. We pointed our headlights west to see the monument that had fascinated me for ages.
As we rode along route 244 towards the entrance of the monument, I got my first glimpse of the 4 faces looking out of the mountainside through a break in the trees. It was stunning. It was what could only be described as a true “wow” moment. What you see in photos and movies cannot compare to the magnitude of what you are looking at in person.
