    Call when you have a approx. time of arrival to Sturgis. I will be staying at the Elkview Campground at exit 37...about 5 miles past(east)the second Sturgis exit.

    I put about 350 miles on the 950 this weekend. The XR is more fun, but this one is a lot better on the highway. I think the XR would also beat it in a race up to 80-85 mph(this actually surprised me).

    the virtual rider - just talking about it makes me feel like I am part of the gang... I will return, mark my words, I will return... Can't keep watching Dust to Glory over and over again forever!

    I'm taking the bus to Idaho; you gotta admit - at least that's hard core bike buying! 2 days on the bus and only one charge in the iPod! No beer on Greyhounds either :baldy

    Got the campground info noted - map checked - easy access. No clue when I'll get there - depends on how gnarly the Idaho trails are or how much the grizzlies in Yellowstone like KTM riders. Gotta get to WI by Sat night for beer at Soldier's Grove campground.

    Well, actually there is, the other end of the table! The rest of the time they were riding, sleeping or drinking! Me, I de-iced the frig, rousted a little sand and fought with the GPS. I won by cheating. Everytime it wanted to go west to Black River Falls, I went southeast or west, which would make it re-think how to get there. I keep it up until it saw the error of it's ways. East to Pray road, south to old 54 to Lund. I win!:jkam
