Janice Clanfield Sighting



So I'm riding home after work tonite in Rapid City and head to the Safeway and I spot a yellow V-Strom parked at a hotel. Turns out it belongs to our one and only Stromtrooper, Janice Clanfield! We had a great visit tonite! Great looking yellow Vee! She is on tour with her Amazon Club from Toronto. They've been touring western South Dakota the past few days. Tomorrow they head in to Nebraska to visit Carhenge, then east thru the Sandhills on their way back to Toronto.

Excellent. You score two points.
Janice is indeed a Celeb-Stromer.
Best of luck to her & the rest of the Amazon "Clan".

Hiya! Was nice to run into TheBlade here in South Dakota. Some of the roads here are a real treat. Wish we could stay another week to discover more of them.

Thanks to TheBlade for the cool South Dakota V-Strom t-shirt. It's actually long enough!

Anyway, like he said, we're heading to Nebraska in a few minutes, and hope to avoid the worst of the rain, thunderstorms, wet roads, and demented corn huskers...

I am 6'1" and felt vertically challenged standing next to Janice. The Amazons were heading south to Carhenge near Alliance, Nebraska, then heading east on Hwy 2 through the Sandhills. If you've never ridden thru the Nebraska Sandhills, add it to your Bucket List.

We made it to Spring Valley, Il. Iowa was really pretty, rolling hills and small towns, all with the same town square...

We'll be travelling through Chicago on the south side to try to avoid most of the freeway traffic, but I have a feeling that it's gonna be busy, especially after all these days riding through the countryside.

One of the things we noticed about Iowa was the lack of zillions of american flags everywhere. It was refreshing after going through places with flags, bunting, and 'merkin slogans plastered all over the place.

People seem to be nice to us wherever we go though...

Pics later.
