If you travel east of the Missouri River in South Dakota, you will get one type of scenery. Go west and you’ll get another. The eastern portion of the state gives riders low hills and lakes that were created by glaciers. You also see farmlands. In the west, there are deep canyons, rolling plains, and the Badlands as well as the huge Black Hills sites. You can get great motorcycle rides on both sides and Mount Rushmore is a sure stop to make. The striking collection of stone pyramids is even more exuberant on a motorcycle and there are plenty of great routes to explore. Here are just a few.
