I was looking at that too.....

We were going to try and make the BH Rally, but the dates don't work into our schedule. We are going to be in the area on July 2, but then south through your neck of the woods.

The rally looks good and I wish we were going, but we have friends meeting us in Santa Fe, NM for 4th of July fireworks.

I am going to shoot for the 7th and 8th, but like you haven't committed.

I will be out of town on business Thursday / Friday so it depends on just how late my return flight is on Friday.

I do love the Black Hills...16a is one if my favorites.

We'll have to find a way to hook up.

Zotter - Not sure when you are going to be in the Hills, but I am presuming during the 7th and 8th? I am traveling with 2 other black LT's and we will be slipping between Casper and Cheyenne on July 3rd.... we don't really have a set route.

I'm thinking about it. Current temps in Phoenix of 115 don't make me too excited about the ride out of town though.

3 July - I'll be here in Casper. I'll PM ya a cell number. When you all get closer, holler. See if you all have time and can hook up for lunch, coffee, cold water, drive through a sprinkler or a pit stop.

We just did a 'Tech Fest' here weekend a'for last. So if anyone's need'n some en route tweek'n we can hit that too.

Just have to deal with the work schedule.

OUCH!
Good news is you'd be headed North. Faster the better, go for altitude. Forcast highs near Spearfish in the high 80s to low 90s

Never did see this aterveen_1487 dude. I'd have hoped that after that aggressive an advertising speal, he'd at least have said 'Hi'.

But did meet up with some other cool folks! (Hi Duane!).

Saw a nice, new Blue LT - never met the rider though. My bad.

Good time. HOT! After lunch on Saturday in Custer State Park, BC thermometer peaked at 113f. My 2002 never skipped a beat though - took it all in stride.

However, the homecoming was less than steller. Seems sometime Friday evening, the upstairs toilet fill valve had some kinda stroke. Input easily exceded drain capacity and the tank over flowed. For 2 days. Long story short? We've lots of carpet ripped out, ceilings pulled down. Gobs of books ruined, etc, etc.

But still - had a great time in SD!! The run through Custer was great. My wife loved it!! Followed Doug on his (??). He was a great run leader. Challenged me but didn't push. Learned a bit and my YL has MUCH more confidence in not only my piloting skills, but the abilities of an LT as well. I'd do it again in a heart beat.

Biggest comments? Why oh why on earth is MOA holding their national rally next year in Gillette Wyoming? I mean they don't even have trees there!! Talk about a hot, dusty time. Lots of skepticism.

AH!! OK, we did say 'HI' then - just didn't recognize ya as such. At the milk can feed Sat eve, I was about 45 degrees off to your left from the stage. Camo boonie cap, fat gut and longish beard. Maroon, '02 LT. Got more pics - I'll get 'em up on my gallery server and share 'em later.

Kinda dealing with lilly pads and frogs at the minute . But we have identified the light at the end of the tunnel, and it's not a train. This time.

If you got more pics that would be great! Looking forward to seeing them, as well as you next year! Take care and let me know the link when you get them up. Have a great week!
