I love the song Riders on the Storm, but riding in a storm sucks. Now light rain is one thing, a storm is another. I think I have told this story. But last year riding to Sturgis, South Dakota we hit a storm in Colorado not to far from Nebraska. The north sky kept getting blacker and then a dark greenish black. That means hail and it was a HELL of a storm and we had no place to go. Fighting high wins and heavy rain we made it to a overpass and crowded or way under. It was full of cars put we got under there. A mile or so West of us, the direction we had came from. Base ball size hell and 2 tornados came through. Cars had their windshields broke out from both directions, cars, trucks, motor home were over turned and the High way was closed behind us. We found this out after we made it to a town, Sterling, Colorado, and got a room how ever we seen many vehicles with their windows beat out by hail. If we had made it through the area 45 minutes earlier we would have missed it all, Sterling had only got light rain. We where very lucky and storms SUCK!!!
