Thanks for the fantastic history lesson.
Cannonshot, I have read this thing for days, this should be a sticky, is that what they call 'em?
I have to admit, with your photography, and the places you went to take the photos, I expected to see a pic of your bike on top of Mt. Rushmore . The most fantastic sites and stories I've ever seen or heard. I've got to go there before I ...........go?
Thank you so much for your efforts in this, I'll be rereading this again and again.
Thanks Klay. See you at SLAP.
Glad you were intertained Meef.
Thanks and glad to see that it may be of some use to planning your own trip. That is how it is intended.
Thanks, glad you enjoyed it.
Riding is fun but riding with history is pretty neat too. Thanks.
Thanks for your enthusiasm. I hope you get a chance to hit the Hills sometime soon. It is a great place to ride.
I'm off to Arkansas to ride the DRZ a little with the folks at SLAP. I won't be around to tend the thread for a few days so please don't think I am ignoring it.
I really enjoyed this Cannonshot! Thanks for all the time and research you had to put into this to do such a top notch job!!
Great report Cannonshot! Thanks so much.
Great report! Thanks for all of the hard work.
If you ever find yourself out in that area again a good place to stay is Fort Robinson in Crawford Nebraska. The barracks have been changed into a neat hotel with no phone and no TV. Great restaurant downstairs.
Thanks for the great RR! I enjoyed the history lesson-off to check out your other threads...
Next time your here check out deerfield road between Rochford and Hill City-nice sweepers and less traffic than most during summer, and Deerfield Resort has nice folks and a cool aqarium.
I was in the Hills last August and now you make me want to go back for further exploring! Thanks for the report!
I LdOL at the pic of the French tourists, the women were wearing trainers, something we Americans are counseled not to do when visiting Europe.
Growing up near the BH I am quite familiar with many of the areas you visited, but quite a few were new to me. Thanks very much for the informative and entertaining narrative and photos. I really enjoyed your ride report.
Great pics and great read.. I have climbed Harney peak twice, I took the kids when they were too young to remember, so I had to go again.
When we got to the top the first time the "no see-ums" were so bad it was almost torture..
So many great memories from the BH.. I went thru once on my bike (K1200LT at the time) so I stayed off the gravel.. After going thru your pics, I need to go back on the GS..
Thanks for posting.
I believe the women were expecting one of those Black Hills flash floods!
I was in Rapid City in '73, many of the buildings were still showing the high water mark from the flood. Glad I live on a hill!
+1 for living on a hill. I always make sure my dwelling is on higher ground. Call me paranoid, but I just don't wish to ever be flooded out. I have had flooding all around me, but have been lucky to never have had to experience it first hand.
Great report! Enjoyed it immensely!!
Lived my entire life in Rapid City and you've shown me a whole new view of the hills. Thanks for opening my eyes...I'll be visiting some new places, and some old, with a new (historical) perspective now.
I'm usually out riding the hills every weekend during the spring/summer/fall. If any of you locals are interested in getting together for a ride to some of the interesting places Cannonshot detailed in this report, drop me a PM here, or, better yet, check out the link in my sig!
Well now we may have to stretch this vacation a little longer this year... I knew some of the history of the area but nothing compared to what you showed me. I wanna go now! I am tired already, but I am ready to be retired lol... bucket list!
Excellent write up indeed. Better every time.
Truly a great reference. Hope to get out there myself, especially after enjoying the write up.
Thanks, Bryan, appreciate the time you've put into the report.
So very nice of you to put all this together. One of the best reports I have read on this site.
Thank you so much.
Now that's a detailed report. Thanks, learned a lot.
Someone else may have already said so by now (I'm working my way through, currently on page 2 of probably 15 or so by now?), but you can also visit the Titan Missile Museum in Tucson, AZ. Part of the Pima Air Museum. Neat place. Google it, easy to find all the website stuff.
Great report as usual, Bryan! Will be contacting you for GPS info. Thanks again for your fantastic RRs!!
Whoa, these look like (are?) the gates you cross to get to my folks' place up near Terry Peak. Never seen anyone else take a pic of them before
