It was perfect weather Saturday for a motorcycle ride on the two-lane highways of both North and South Dakota.

It just got a little wet towards the end as a series of storms moved through the region.

The Nick Johnson Memorial Run started in Bowman and went through Scranton before heading south. The group cruised through the South Dakota towns of Reva, Buffalo and Ludlow before heading back into North Dakota and Rhame.

The participants paid $20, of which 75 percent goes to the Rhame Fire Department Memorial Fund, according to the organizers.

The other 25 percent went to the group’s Poker Run, according to Ethan Seifert. At each stop, the group drew a card.

Seifert had hoped for good weather for the Nick Johnson Memorial Run, and he got that for most of the ride but when the motorcyclists returned to Rhame and Bowman they had to deal with rain and wet roads.

The group left Windy’s Bar and Pizza in Bowman Saturday morning on schedule.
