The theme to Gillette rally should be somthing about the Jackelope! I should of thought of this before! Jakelopes and Beemers! We could all wear silly little horns on our helmets! what a great theme! (No offense meant to those who already wear silly little horns or ears!)
Metephorically speaking, here is the mysterious Jackelope (Beemer) who rides (is) fast, and they (S bikes, maybe LTs) are hard to catch (Wyoming Game and Fish keep count, and there has been less than 100 actually caught since they began keeping records in 1899).
Beemers are fast. Jackelopes are smart and fast Beemer riders are smar... Well let's leave it at fast, shall we? We used to chase these things on motorcycles when I was a kid in eastern Colorado, but I know from friends in Wyoming they grow much, much bigger up there, somthing to do with a nutrient in the sagae brush that is more powerful in Wyoming.
Oh yes and the male jackelope has unusually large you know, ( down there ) organs, so since they both have horns male and female, that's how you tell the difference. The same is true for most male Beemer riders...right?
The last thing they have in common is some of them ( nobody knows why) when they first start out running, they blow blue smoke out of their ass! Can you imagine! I think it's cause they sleep on their sides!
Whattia think! Will it work?
ps their goes my lunch hour1 How time flys!

The Jackalope is a rabbit species that inhabits the Western United States, and unlike any other type of rabbit, they grow antlers that are similar to a Mule Deer, or an Antelope. Evolutionary Theorists cannot explain as to how the Jackelope is able to produce antlers, or where this creature might have evolved. There is no evidence to explain how the Jackelope uses it’s antlers, or whether the animal is terretorial or not.
Walking into the Sunshine Truck Stop, the other day, I saw a Jackolope mounted to the wall. Even dead, you don’t see very many representations of this animal. I peered into its dusty, plastic eyes. His antlers were similar to that of a Mule Deer.
I would like to catch one of these elusive creatures. In all my time wandering the Desert Southwest, I have yet to see one in the wild. They are rarely spotted, even more so then Mountain Lions. Many skeptics will claim that they are a hoax, or just a fable, but this is not true. My own grandfather killed one, while he was gardening out at our ranch back in the 70’s. He put it in a plastic bag, but the maggots got to it. So he wasn’t able to skin and mount it. This is what he told me.
