Planning Trip to Black Hills & Have Some Questions

My wife and I are planning a trip to the Black Hills late September/early October. I was wondering if someone could help me with a few questions. (1) We have a RZR 1000 that is 64 inches wide - how limited is my access to trailes?  (2) Is there a process to make my machine street legal?  (3) Where would you suggest we stay (town, resort, etc.).  I appreciate your help!See More
