Hey Folks - we have a ton of pictures for the Sidecarist but we need a report. I would like to not have to write this one. I will have to do an article every month and a "State of The Club" report soon but I would like someone else's perspective on the rally. Thanks!!

Hi Chief, I have sent pictures to Martin and will have a report out to him by Monday. However I am short of names and home towns of attendees. Pilot error while using my new Iphone6. I'm sure Martin will appreciate everyone's efforts on a report.

Started working on the KLR and it is not a blown spark plug it is in the engine, I have ordered a manual and will start the tear down when it comes. Any way no matter what went wrong I will be sending it up to get the 705 kit, larger valves and performance cams.

Joe, enjoyed meeting you and seeing your KLR at the rally. You have many great farkles and mods on that rig. Please let us know what you find as the problem with the motor... maybe you can start a new thread in the Technical section so other KLR owners can learn from your experience.

Harold would be the best guy to answer this question - but i will try. The way I understand it Al is setting up a website where all the pics are going to be appearing. In an email I had from Harold this morning it looks like the files of pics are so big from some of other photogs that were among us. Al will give the signal when his website is ready.

There seems to be circularity in this. I went to www.stickybunny.com and clicked on Monumental Rally and arrived back here. I tried again with the same result.

Using my mobile, I found the pics after hitting the "MENU" and then "Rushmore pics". Nice shots. We were not there.

Al, there is a search response to www.stickybunny.com that has "search a thread... Monumental Rally ." It does loop right back to this thread. The only way I can get to the photos is to click the link in the earlier post.

Thank you Will Short and all your volunteers for their hard work to put on a great rally. This was our first national rally and we had a great time. This was my wife’s first trip to South Dakota and she was really looking forward to seeing Mt Rushmore and the surrounding area.

We left home in Spanaway, WA on June 20 and arrived at our hotel in Deadwood, SD on the 24th. We took mostly secondary roads, with a slight detour into WY to ride over Beartooth Pass.
We took in some of the other tourist locations in the area, toured the roads around Rushmore, and of course the Rally itself.

The heat started affecting my wife and we spent Saturday afternoon taking it easy and headed home Sunday morning. Our original plans were to ride the “Going to the Sun Highway” in Glacier Park, but because of the temperature we skipped that. We rode north from Deadwood and took secondary roads to Helena, MT to visit a few days with my wife’s sister before riding on home.

We had been looking forward to getting home to the moderate temperatures of western Washington, but someone turned on the heat. Washington was having a heat wave too, with record temperatures.
In all, we put on 3,527 miles round trip, using 107 gallons of gas at an average of 33 MPG, and miles of smiles. Even if was hot, miles of smiles.

I took a few photos while on the trip, which are posted on my Zenfolio photo site at:
http://wingincamera.zenfolio.com/2015_monumental-sidecar-rally
The photos are separated into seven albums.

If anyone wants to copy or share any of the photos, just move your mouse pointer over the left side of a photo and a drop down menu will appear with options.

Thank You Will. You accomplished what I have not been able to get done. I had hoped to set up a situation where members could down load a file and have it printed. I don't think you can download a file from zenfolio which make sense because they are in the business of selling prints. The prices of prints of various sizes on zenfolio seem reasonable to me.

SOOOO MEMBERS Will has invited you to look at and buy his pictures. This is the source of you rally pictures.

Thank You Al. This is what we promised and all we promised. There are plenty of other rally pictures here and there that can be downloaded if members wish.

Printing Hint. Since it is a bit of a panorama I used letter sized photo paper and unchecked the Fit to size box in the printer window and I have a very good image.

Concerning my photos posted at Zenfoilo, I just changed the download options to allow full resolution download. I had forgotten to change it when first uploaded. Now if you want a print you can either have Zenfolio print it and mail it to you, or just download the original file and print it yourself or send it to any printing service you like. Personally, I like the results I get from Coscto printing, if that is a option.

Thanks for opening that up for us.





Thanks, Will, for opening up the option of doing a download. BTW I have tried several times to get a good picture of tunnel with the faces. The best I have done was a picture that was in the Sidecarist with a good exposure of the faces and the tunnel under exposed with no detail. You just caught enough sun shining into the opening to show tunnel detail. Good Shot

I tried to save the Mt. Rushmore group picture and got a null instead of a picture. What am I doing wrong?

Hi Will, concerning the download problem (with two Will's this can be confusing).
If you are referring to my photos at Zenfolio I am not sure what your are referring to. There are some buttons on the right upper side of the screen (Buy, Share, others) but I would ignore these. When looking at the photos in a particular folder, just click on a selected photo to select it to a single larger photo. After doing this, move your mouse pointer over the left upper side of the photo and the drop down menu will appear giving you several options. One of the options is to download the original file, it will also give you the size of the file. One of the other options is to "share" the photo. Use the Share to directly on social medial sites, or the "Direct Link To Images" to link different size files to message boards.
Hopefully this will solve any problems.

Concerning the different albums on the site. The Town of Waitsburg is a small little town in SW Washington that caught our attention enough to stop long enough to take some photos. Beartooth Pass is photos from this pass in Wyoming with a elevation of 10,947 feet. I forgot to take a photo of the GPS info showing the elevation, but there was a couple of other lower passes that I also captured. Devils Tower folder speaks for itself. Wonderland Cave is one of the tourist stops we went through. Mt Rushmore album, well our visit at Rushmore. Sidecars at the Rally also speaks for itself, and so does the album "Roads around Mt Rushmore" which includes the Needles highway and Iron Mountain highway.

I'm not sure you'e doing anything wrong. I'm seeing very odd behavior from the website with the larger files. I suggest that you click the link at the bottom of the post rather than the image. That worked for me.

Hi Will (the other Will):
I did as you instructed and got a picture that had a very large file. It gave me the option of downloading. I did that but I don't know where it downloaded to.

You have some very good pics of the Mt. Rushmore experience - Except I seem to be digging in my side pocket. At least the bike was photogenic.

Thanks for all the pics. As they say in the South "Ya done good"

I received this email from Laura Klock in response to the check I sent to them for Helping With Horsepower. It ended up being $900.

Hi Will!
What a great surprise to open the envelope I received in the mail today! THANK YOU for your generous donation to Helping With Horsepower! And for the extra for gas. That wasn't necessary at all. We completely enjoyed our time there. I was shocked by how many different types of sidecars there are. Ironically enough, we visited Indian of Sturgis before we headed back, and I looked at a sidecar there for my Chieftain. If I go ahead with it, I will certainly send you some photos!
You're a really great group of people, and we were honored to be invited to your event.

Thank you so much. Bless you.
