    Thanks, Les
    Have you tried PMing any of the Gillette members to see if they have some ideas? So how big is big??? Maybe I can HELP with some info. Richard

    Richard, is there a local chapter of bikers in general? Even a Honda club or Hog club are just people who like to ride, and are most likely full of good Wyoming hospitality! Might not hurt to ask!

    I remember riding across the northern plains in "98(?) to the MOA Rally in Missoula wishing I had trailered the RT!

    This time I will be on a trike so at least I won't be leaning as much in the cross wind as then. At least I wore out both sides of my tires coming and going.

    truck/trailer parking

    Les, Did you ever get in touch with Karol Patzer concerning your question?

    The Cam-Plex venue covers 1,100 acres. I feel fairly certain there is someplace to park your truck and trailer during the rally, but contact Karol (08 Rally Co-Chair) for the definitive answer.

    You may need to contact him directly given the warm welcoming reception his first post on the forum garnered for him.

    My thoughts exactly.....I've PM'd him that there's space at the Cam-Plex, but he should call prior to his arrival so they can find him a safe spot.

    Thanks, all....

I rather ride around out there. Custer Park, Badlands, Mt Rushmore, Devil's Tower etc. And my trailer is big enough that I can also haul a vintage or collector bike in addition to the rider for all the anti-trailer guys to drool over during the bike show

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    Then take 4 or 5 days and take back roads.
    Just kidding. I will enjoy seeing the Vintage or collector bikes too.
    Have a good trip.

    Going to Gillette

    Doesn't bother me one way or another. All I know is I just want to go! If I can ride my RT that's great and if not I'll drive my Jeep, as they say " Life Is Good"

    Yeah, me too. I plan on back roads all the way there. I am not sure about going home though.
