Here is my ride report from August 1996. I’m doing this off of “best I can remember” memories and please forgive the pictures, they are photos of my photos. My name is Dave and I was 35 years old in 96 and the bike I rode up was a 1995 BMW K1100 LTA and was bought new the year before. I put on about 17k in its first year without problem and so in Augaust I left Milwaukee, WI and headed to Sturgis for the Black Hills Rally. I rode to The Badlands and camped at Sage Creek Campground. The next couple days were spent in and around the Rally camped at Glenco Campground. Then it was off to Alaska.
