    Had a damn good time at this rally, we rode little bikes on 199, 172, 143 and every other single track we could find. Thursday was a bit rough cause we got excited when we rolled in Wednesday night and stayed at the fire till 3am (helping direct all the other late arrivals of course), the rain on Thursday with a hangover made for a long hard day, but at least we deserved our beers again! Did the same on Friday, only this time we did 171/172 backwards which is much easier, topped it off with 199 backwards just for fun in the late afternoon heat. Followed by more beer. Saturday was big dual sport day and we followed some of the routes/maps provided and had a nice day, saw some towns and took our time through that mile long tunnel (55° inside). The McCoy's did an amazing job, I've been on their end before, it's a ton of thankless work, so like everyone else said....Thanks!

    I had a great time! As for he hitch, sh#t happens. I did not let that spoil my fun. Just had to leave the rally Saturday afternoon after gorging on the free bacon and was back with my truck a 10am Sunday to get the trailer.

    I hope to be back if Don and Kathy decide to do it again.

    I enjoyed myself too! Thanks to JeepJeff for taking us around some fantastic roads! Dean and Les were great- Dean liked my beer choices :beer. Think I spoiled him a little.
    A car actually went by that washed out area while we stopped. The dude's tires were right on the edge. Judging from the garbage deposited on the washout it has been there for a while.

    "Dean and Les were great- Dean liked my beer choices :beer. Think I spoiled him a little" Pete, you had some damn fine Belgian. Hopefully we shall be able to get together again and tip a few more back. I am already planning to attend this rally again next year.

    I had a great time. Thanks everyone who tried to help me find a shift lever for my dr650. (Im the guy who bent his wheels)
    Here is some footage
    I already ordered 2 shift levers for next time, and a bunch of suspension upgrades, poor Piggy was having a rough time

    Is there a story behind the upside down map on the back of the T-shirts?

    The Stolen Pig Rally was terrific, thanks to Don and Kathy and everyone else that helped put it on. I saw some old friends and met many new friends. The choice of riding locations between the HM trail system and the Playground just a few miles from town was a big plus. I look forward to next year's rally and might bring a crew up for a ride this fall.
