We arrived and unloaded about 3pm Friday. NOT bad time considering we BEER shopped and ate breakfast before arriving.

Since we drove straight through, we took it easy Friday night, Went and watched Queensryche. (former fan) They showed up 45 min. late. I wasn't impressed since I was running on about 1 hours sleep in 38 hours. They didn't start playing till 1115pm. Sounded good... but F them! I only took a few pix

All in all it was a GREAT trip with some great people. We wanted to get close to 2k while we were out there, but ended with 1200, little disappointed, but we had some issues, (well, some people did, not us)

Weather was mild, good for riding. Never rained on us while we were on the skoots. But did every night after our return to camp.

Tons more pix, but I picked the best... that were safe... ;)

Yeah, Tate is way better, this guy (Tood??) was good, but I think they were too busy getting fucked up in the back to care about showing up on time!

No problem, I know how it is, we've went the last several times with separate groups... it's hard to coordinate. Sounds funny, but you get that many people and it's just hard...

DT is worth experiencing a few times... we like to go there at least once... The riding is GREAT! Not as nice as Tenn, and NC, but the scenery is better around Sturgis. In my opinion... keeps me coming back...

Have to least once. I know you will!
