Little bit of sad news from South Texas --- I was idling the rig as we were ready to mount, the engine died --- something appears to be wrong with tranny and/or Mamba reverse -- anyway, it would take more than a day to fix and we would start counting Tuesday as all shops are closed today. So the rig ain't going but we is ---- heading out in the SUV in a few .... I have recorded the Harley and will play on stereo as we ride in the hills

I just sent a private message to Will Short to see if I can attend the rally and pay on site for dues and rally fees. That weekend has opened up for me and I'm only about 500 miles away in Southern Minnesota. I would leave on Thursday after work and make partway there. Roll in late Friday morning.

Don is 100% correct. We are ready for walk-ons. The more the merrier. The camping space is hardly tested yet. If you need a Motel you might have a problem - but there are cabins not far away (Exit 34). WELCOME!!

Well Gang I have the pickup loaded and hooked to the popup and the wife and I will be heading out in the morning. I don't have a sidecar (yet) but wanted to ride with everyone so I loaded up the old trusty 1978 Yamaha SR500 in the back of the pickup. Looking forward to meeting everyone and learning about sidecars. See you tomorrow afternoon. John

I am very sad to report that my beloved Valkyrie/Hannigan super sport , after a valiant effort, broke down at a campground in the mountains outside of Idaho Springs, CO. It seems that something went wrong with either the starter or the gear reduction unit attached to it. Being three miles up out of the way with little time to spare I have decided to fly home to NY, then drive back with my trailer to bring the stalwart but ailing Valk home for repairs. My meeting with so many sidecar enthusiasts will have to wait for a better day. I know that Dave Keesee will be there. Please send him my regards, also to you, Will. I apologize for this late note but there was absolutely no communication possible at the campground. I am writing this note at the Denver International Airport waiting for my (now delayed) flight. Regards to everyone,

Sorry about that Leon. We are here at the Campground with enough of our closest friends to have a good rally. It is raining and The rally doesn't start till this evening. The rain will quit, more will come , the sun will shine for the weekend and we will miss you. What do you want us to do with your rally fee and did you order a Tee Shirt. We have told others that we will ship the Tees to them after the Rally. Harold

Please keep the fees. I would have gladly been there but for a possible broken starter or damaged statrer reduction unit (or maybe worse) while staying well up on a mountain near beautiful Mount Evans in CO. I don't remember if I ordered a shirt. right now I've returned to New York and will begin the trek back to retrieve the hack right after completing an oil change and securing my trailer. I will miss my very first rally but plan on future riding.

Weather has turned beautiful here in Sturgis, Today was the shine and judge show, Counted over 50 rigs lined up. This is just the start of the first row, there were three rows of rigs to drool over. As a Past President once said, I had lust in my heart.

Like their individual owners, there were no two the same.

Made it back with only a few drops of rain a couple of miles from home. It was a great time riding in the hills, but as every year there were a few spots of chip seal being laid down. But, that is why the roads are always in such great condition. the campground was better than I had envisioned. It was made superb by the (I'm tempted to say incessant) rains that have made every mile of the prairie lush green. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing everyone's sidecar rig creations and meeting the people I have received help from here on the forum.
I want to specially say that "Blue Tape Rules!". My helmet visor latch broke and a liberal application of universal "fixit" material kept it in place all the way home.

This was my first USCA rally and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The campground was very nice with good facilities and the local riding was awesome! Thanks very much to all the hard work that the crew that organized this rally put into it! It really showed!

Great rally. My grandson and I had a lot of fun meeting other riders who think outside the box. The rides were amazing as well. My grandson, Gabe is already talking about going to next year's rally.

It was a wonderful time in Sturgis, thanks all who worked to put it on. You can all harvest the fruits of our labors next year.

A great sunrise over the pond.


Camp in the beginning.


Camp quickly grew as the days passed.

Leon Hilfstien broke down and didn't make it to the rally. We had a registration packet made up for him with a t-shirt. He wants his t-shirt. Did some kind, thoughtful soul pick up Leon's packet for him? If so I need to know. Thanks!

Returned home today from the rally. Both Ginger and I had a great time. Our thanks to all who were involved in putting together a fantastic rally.

We had such a good time we decided to stay and camp an extra night, leaving for home early Monday morning. The down side with that idea was getting blown out of bed at 3:00 am Monday morning when a tremendous thunderstorm rolled through the campground. Vivid lightning, booming thunder, incredible wind, and very heavy rain. The upside was seeing a double rainbow over the hills as the storm moved out early in the morning.

Hello everyone, this is the guy with the KLR sidecar from Arizona. I made it home ok and will start looking for what went wrong this weekend. I would like to thank our host and the Flying Ural, the KLR kid, Arlen Ness Goldwing with the fuzzy dog and the Rocket III with the hot rod sidecar. Thanks for all of your help after my break down.

Glad to know you made it home - Joe. Let us know what you find.

To the rest of the rally attenders - Martin contacted me this morning and needs a rally report, with pictures. I am not sure when he needs it but he is working on the July/August magazine. Remember - the magazine and the editor depend you the members coming through with copy. If he has to pick and chose from too much stuff, so much the better.

Dana,

Your last two photos of the solo bike,  Is it a Harley flathead or Knucklehead?

You have a shot of the other side?

A great ride. Thanks Al Olme for allowing me to join you on part of the ride to Sturgis. A Fantastic rally and we even heard a few SHORT jokes, because of the entire Short family being there help. Great job Short Family. You are the greatest. Some great pictures already up and I will have more later. Thanks also to all the people who purchased copies of my new book, "Discovering Life After Alzheimer's - The 26,000 mile ride." It was fun visiting with you about Alzheimer's and Care giving. Blessings to you all, and especially those of you who are full time caregivers. I ended up in Minneapolis and did a 1,133 mile Iron Butt ride home to Helena, Montana in 20 hours. A good windy, rainy ride for an 80 year old biker. Thanks again Will and family. Good Job.

Had a great time me-own-self!

Joe, I'd like to hear about whatever you find in the KLR that caused it to crater. Glad you made it home ok.

Thanks to all who made the rally happen!

It is a Knuckle. He has several years parts on it, a rider not a show bike. They also have that nice red R1150R/EZS rig in the background.







That is pretty much all I have of it.
