Ahem...

Its Rogue. Not Rouge. From the American Heritage Dictionary:

rogue n. A person who is playfully mischievous.

rouge n. A red or pink cosmetic for coloring the cheeks or lips.

Thanks mistercindy! I thought it may be incorrect when I was typing, but I was too lazy to verify it - sorry newbie mistake.

I was hoping for a Christmas present but apparently nothing. Not even a lump of coal! Someone do me (and the rest of us ) a favour and shake this guy's cage. " it's dead!" "NO IT'S NOT! It's resting"-Monty Python

I suspect that Rogue1 has let real life distract him from what is important, our need for a vicarious ride back to the humdrum of his existance. Come back, dood, and put us out of our misery.























PMS has us in its thrall.

I just checked and Rogue1 hasn't even been on ADVRider since October 5th. I think this thread is dunfer.

A cowboy on horseback crosses the street near me, a dog at the horse’s heels, as I mosey into the Longhorn. Wow… It’s right out of an old cowboy flick. Stools made from steel tractor saddles and milk cans. 5 inches of sawdust on the floor keep bottles from breaking when dropped and puke, blood, spills and other assorted fluids clean up easier. Two pool tables in back and single dollar bills with the names of customers from around the country are stapled to the walls. This place is the ultimate prototype for the classic biker bar. Photographed by Iron Horse and Easyrider, this place is a zoo during Sturgis Bike Week.

Nice report Dude,
I waited out a rainstorm in that longhorn bar playing pool, drinking beers on my way to AK in '99. In that town they will let you camp in the middle of the town, and the store there has quite abit pawn shop material...
This post brings back so many memories of my trip last summer. I had almost the same experience. One single customer other than me, a dirty, drunk middle age Indian who seemed to be the regular. I bought four bottles of water(it was 95 deg out) and the Indian followed me out of the bar. I think his name was Chuck White Butterfly, he was a gentle kind person but had no problem asking anyone for anything. He asked me for money I gave have him a few bucks, then he asked for a ride to Rapid City on the back of my bike. I was a little shocked that he would ask for a ride. Give someone a inch and they will ask for a mile. I bet he asks every visitor for money. One strange town, I just amazed to find something open.


What really puzzles me is how the place has not burnt down yet with all the sawdust on the floor like that. I was just waiting to hear the whoosh of an igniting fire.

That rat-hole in South Dakota sort of reminds me of this little place in Australia:



Traveled the Pacific Coast Highway with the wife back in '94. My son, Morgan, traveled with us as well. In the wife's belly! She was three months pregnant!

Rogue, you can't be that busy you can't finish this story. I'm in graduate school as well. You just have to get up early and be better at time management!

later, barry
