The mileage between gas stops was close to 100 miles in some locations, with the closest off highway stops sometimes as far away as 47 miles. Not terribly helpful if you have a small tank. The really strong headwind can really cut down on you mileage as well. Sometimes the headwind was up as high as 45 - 50 MPH. This route was included on this site since it was the first time I ever went to Sturgis, SD. I rode it on my own when my buddy backed out and I was left to find my own way. I would say the views along the route are pretty sweet, but I may be biased. There is no reason to not include an interstate ride since it was amazingly remote, and the best way to get there from North Carolina. I couldn't take more than 3 weeks off to ride this summer, otherwise I would have come up from the south.
