Should have been in Sturgis yesterday...not any motorcycles running around. Have never ridden in those conditions, but imagine it would pretty tough to keep a line.

60-70 mph gusts with debris and dust flying everywhere.

More of the same today.

When you have whitecaps in the toilet, that's windy!

Windy in colorado too. Blew chairs off my porch. Luckily I was working, not trying to go shooting.

Tried to take the horses for a trail ride yesterday, here in S. Kolorado. Wind got so strong that we had to take the horse blankets, roll them up, and stick them in the horses' butts to keep the wind from blowing the bits out of their mouths!

I told an older friend in Wabigoon, he didn't know what wind was.

Made him angry.

In Iowa, we don't compared to the plains.

I have - once, on a trip to CO... Back in about '82 (?) Goin' across Nebraska with a cruiser bike - winds were 65-75 from the LH side.. Man, I used a lot of new rubber on the tires that never seen the road before... I'm not sure I'd do it now with a full-sized bagger.. smile

Did a quick 62 mile rip yesterday myself.

Lots of leaning while going in a straight line. Wind was mostly at the 9 o'clock but occasionally it would whip to 2 so you had to be on your toes.
