    Can anyone please clarify; I have a CO plate and a CO OHV tag, do I need a SD OHV tag?

    If you are going to ride any of the national forest trails (highly reccommend), you will need the permit. $20 for a week, $25 for a year if I recall. Can be done online, or at Forest Service offices. We always get ours at the office just North of Custer on West side of 385. They will have MVUM maps for free, also.

    Been riding the DAKAL a piece at a time-nothing short of awesome, highly reccomend if you get a chance.

    Is there a FS office near Deadwood where the permit can be picked up ?
    I'll be hanging around after the Rally and riding the DAKAL .
    Would anyone have an idea where I can park a truck and camper for 4 or 5 days ?

    Are you staying at Deadwood Lodge? Maybe they would let you leave it there. Or, maybe a campground nearby.

    Anyone that has gone to previous ones. Since KTM hasn't given squat in regards to a schedule of events, i'm trying to plan commute time (I've used WAY Too many vacation days this year).

    Assuming that there are events going on Friday? so arrive Thursday night, and i'm golden if I scoot out on Sunday morning?

    Has there been any info on the type of rides planned? Especially in terms of length between gas and/or amount of paved sections.

    If I make a last minute decision to go, I'll need to decide on which bike and tank size.:1drink

    They don't publish or announce the planned rides at all. But there are numberous ones that vary with the skill levels of the riders. A lot depends on the location of the Rally too. Bend, Colorado, etc. offer various types of terrain but they pick rides for every level. I don't think you will travel over 150 on one of there rides though.

    I've got my 100+ mile tank on now, or put the wide body 200 miler on. Having never ridden out there I'm just not sure about gas stops. I'll do some research tonight on some of cannons tracks for this area.

    my range is 150 miles and should be more than enough if we're riding the nearby black hills.

    small gas tank may be ok if you bring a couple of msr bottle, though i prefer the giant loop fuel bladder.

    Is this an ORV sticker, and do I have to worry about it before I get to Deadwood?

    I am getting for my bikes before the event. But my time is likely more limited than yours while out there. Just one less thing to worry about.
    Stickers will not come in time, just carry printed receipts.

    Based on last years rally, you won't miss much scooting out on Sunday morning. That's what we plan to do as well. Handful of vendors were still around on Sunday and some AM demo rides, but for the most part the official schedule ended with Saturday nights awards dinner.

    If I recall, breakfast was from 7-9AM on Friday and kicked things off. Arriving Thursday night you will be good. Since are leaving Thursday after work from Denver, we are thinking about making it as far as Lusk and then heading out early Friday AM toward Deadwood.

    Your Black Hills MVUM permit is good for both SD and WY (at least for the Black Hills National Forest areas is WY). Do get the permit, the fines are significant.

    There is generally gas available in many small places in the Hills -- big range won't be all that necessary unless you head east into the Badlands, or further west in WY-- some big empty out there. Do a little research, there is a TON of single and ATV/snowmachine track in the hills, as well as normal FS and fire roads. Some of the single track is moderately difficult; I've had a TE610 on some of it. But you Rocky Mountain types will have little problem.

    Not much cell coverage if you need such stuff. Around Deadwood/Lead won't be bad, but just about anywhere out of the towns, there is little.

    Oh, and bring water. It gets warmer than it does in the Rockies.

    Trailering out my 690 and a buddies EXC500 on Wednesday. Stop for some work, get to the hills on Thursday.
