Written Directions

Highway 34 from Sturgis South Dakota to the Minnesota border. Runs parallel to Interstate 90.

Scenery

It is as scenic as South Dakota can get. It has some long sweeping curves when riding along the Missouri River.

Drive Enjoyment

This two lane highway is a great alternative to Interstate I 90. Very well maintained. Hilly with sweeping curves along the Missouri river.

Tourism Opportunities

Small towns along the route for fuel and food and some lodging. We really enjoyed Woonsocket, stayed overnight in an old bank converted to a motel, and went swimming in their lake.

Motorcycle Road Additional info

Great alternative to the straight and boring Interstate.

Nice east-west ride through SD, avoiding the interstate. Long, sweeping curves, excellent scenery. Much, much more enjoyable than the interstate.
