No good roads out here.


😁 Just kidding.


Lots and lots and lots of stuff for families and non-riders to do at the site and in the area. Roads are spectacular. Even found a few outside of the RV packed areas.

This will work great. I look forward to seeing all in the summer.

I will start by being "OUT" and then if it works out, I can back IN. wave

Riding: everything from SUPER technical 10MPH hairpin switchbacks and a road that feels like a hot wheels track to undulating ???MPH sweepers to arrow straight and open plains runs, Sturgis canyon run is a hoot. Didn't have proper vehicle for dirt scouting but plenty of well maintained GS stuff plainly visible.

Facility: your UN host will discuss very shortly but a very wide availability of options, amenities, and pricing. It is a great place with super hosts and a ton to do without even leaving. My reservations are made clap

Crazy Horse, Mount Rushmore, The Black Hills, Devils Tower, Lead, Hill City, deadwood, casinos, keystone, Sturgis, rapid city all within easy striking distance. Rapid city airport is silly convenient to use. Dining options are plentiful with nicer stuff in Rapid City. Multiple wineries, distilleries, breweries in the area.

UN tip of the day: observe strictly the 25MPH zones in the vicinity of the Rushmore gates grin

Secondary UNtip of the day: Deer and turkey are super plentiful in these parts.


I hope to see many of you next summer. Someone has to take one for the team to make these things possible..... grin

It's funny. I just did all of those basically a month ago. Stayed in Rapid. Only thing we didn't get to was Devils Tower.

Wife and I have been riding for 25 years. So we're not exactly noobs on motorcycle. But I only switched to the RT 2 years ago. She got hers the end of this July. After only a month to acclimate to the RT, I through her into the curves of Black Hills. She did awesome. Really enjoyed the trip. We're ready to do it again! Can't wait.

This should work out perfectly! The Clean Living Hoosiers and I will be in the neighborhood and officially finishing up our group riding just prior to the UN. This should allow a leisurely ride and rest period to ease revit bike on over thataways, dragging hopefully at least one of the Hoosier boys along with. read

Ummmmm................ Venison loin and smoked turkey breast! Count me in. A few fresh caught trout would pretty well round out the menu.
