Thanks for bumping the thread. We need to keep reminding people the Monumental Rally is coming. Looking at your second picture brings up one of the tentative events during the Rally. We would like to gather participants in that parking lot for a group picture. We can get a little closer and the Rushmore people will reserve the lot for us. I don't think we will need a Sturgis Police escort . Harold in Rapid City

2003 was the first Mayor's ride at the rally and a friend who lived in Deadwood where we stayed was big in the VFW up there and they were doing security for the Mayor's ride and he got me and my good friend from Denver to run road security on our BMWs for the Mayor's Harley run to Mount Rushmore.



Mayor and other dignitaries rode in the Jack Daniel's limo.



Nice digs:

You got to see some of the best roads if you did the Mayors ride by the route that our son did several years ago. Vanoker Canyon from Sturgis to Nemo Road. Nemo road to Hiway 385 and 385 through Hill City to 244 and up the hill to Mt. Rushmore. it is a great ride - but we have so many.
We would like to do that ride at the Monumental Rally in June. We are planning a photo shoot at Mt Rushmore.
Today I rode from my house down Sheridan Lake Road (Out the SW corner of Rapid City) until my low fuel light came on. I couldn't make it all the way to Sheridan Lake but the weather was fantastic for December 12th so I did it.

2003 was the first time I had been there since the late 70s so I am not real good with the roads and such around there but it was a nice ride.

Looking forward to riding some of those roads again though and my friends in Denver, Spat and Cookie, did the Sturgis rally probably 20 plus years in a row so I am confident that they will know some good routes also. I guess it is my fault they bought their Ural a few years back and I am sure that is what they will have there so may have to con Spat in to leading a Ural ride while we are there.

Games are being planned. I would like to encourage people that have never been in the games to please get out and enjoy your selves. Games are for fun. If you just have to get a trophy,I will sell you one. I am planning on 3 games for driver and passenger. 1 game for driver only. Put your dog in car if you want to. Nobody screws up worse than Avanell and I do. Just ask people that have seen us in the blindfold salom. At last 1 game will be fun for small people(kids). Hope to see a lot of people turn out. Will and Harold and wives are working hard to make this a super national rally.

Sounds good to me. I always enjoy having 1st. timers in the games. They are planned for fun both for participants and crowd. Usually speed is not a factor. Avanell & I got trophy for being the most fun to watch. Probably did everything wrong. See you in Sturgis.

When things get a little closer we'll have a registration page set up for the rally. There won't be any registration for the for the Raid. Just send a note to me Al@AlOlme.com and I'll send you the details.

I'm thinking more and more about making this rally next year.

Looks like fun, and you know, I've been to the Sturgis rally in August 19 times....maybe its time to do something different....besides, the 75th this next year will be crowded and way overpriced.

We definitely plan to be there for the USCA Rally and the Yellowstone Raid. I've been to Sturgis in mid-June. Believe me when I say traffic and parking will NOT be a problem.

Brian and Ace:
FYI - We planned it so our rally participants wouldn't have to deal with the Sturgis Rally chaos. It is bad enough on an off year. The 75th anniversary is going to be awful. I live in Rapid City and at 30 miles from Sturgis is is still a mess. I may take my wife and the 5th wheel and go somewhere far away.
Having said all that negative stuff - the Black Hills of South Dakota in June is a wonderful place to visit and ride the crooked roads. We will be excited to have you come and be a part of the Monumental rally. Keep watch in this forum thread for more details on what will be happening at the rally. We are prejudiced but we think this rally will be really full of good stuff to do - and places to see AND people to visit with.

Looks like Will and Harold are planning on a super rally. Thanks in advance to you guys and all the volunteers that will be needed. They can't do everthing all by themselves. Don't be too shy to step up and volunteer to help out where ever you can. Some volunteers are recruited and some just step up and say what do you need. Hope to see a large crowd at Sturgis.

Welcome to you Tom. That's the whole idea. We would like to have Ralliers spend time enjoying the riding that is available here in the Black Hills and there is not enough time during the rally to both rally and ride. Will and I will be on site early with maps in hand. We know of others that plan on being there early to lead rides. Looking forward to meeting you Harold

Try again. For some reason the first try didn't fly.

We will be glad to see you. Come prepared for some awesome scenery and crooked roads - after the long straight ones to get here. There will be more articles in the Sidecarists to come. Harold is submitting at least one more.

The one in the back of your current issue is just a start. From the south end of both of those rides you are in Custer State Park and close to the wildlife loop. You can ride through a buffalo herd (if you have quiet mufflers). During the Sturgis Rally the buffalo move away from the noise and nobody gets to see them. We have ridden through the herd several times on our rig (BMW K1100w/Motorvation Formula). As long as you don't do something dumb like get in their face or poke them with a stick you are fine - but every year some dumb tourist gets out of their vehicle and gets too close and gets launched off buffalo horns.

Just ran into this https://sites.google.com/site/gpskevin/gpskevin-ride-calendar/scoote... They will be in Sturgis on Saturday June 26. This could be interesting. They seem to be limited to 50 scooters. We are not the only motor group in town. If you are a moteler it might be wise to get you reservation early. Harold

Hi gpers:
The registration will start when the next Sidecarist comes out. (I am glad to know that the question is coming up.) There will be a registration form in the magazine and 2 forms on line - an internet version and a .pdf that you can make a hard copy of and mail to me.
