    The rest of us are not far behind..

    Randy and friends,

    My wife and son came back from Kansas today, and said there was BMW's at every turn (of course I have trained them to be crack shot Beemer identifiers from a mile away)

    So I know the world is converging on Gillette from I-90 annd I-80...

    The rest to follow, and me at the crack of dawn..

    It is getting absoluetly painful to have to wait till tomorrow morning

    Better than Christmas morning! I got to"wrap" my own present, my sweet GS!

    See you all there Thursday afternoon!

    I spent the day riding around the northern Hills today and there are LOTS of BMW's around already.

    I got behind a guy on a new RT coming south out of Deadwood on my way back to where I'm staying and I made it down to Pactola Reservoir in record time. There must be something wrong with my GPS because the max speed is showing 95.5.

    I saw this camo GS at Sturgis BMW yesterday.

    Smile Rally Pic........

    I pulled in about two P.M., beautiful weather and about 2,000 people on site.

    I'm not sure where the guy is that owns this "Ms. Kitty" tent but I'd say he must be pretty secure in his masculinity!

    Cheers!

    Don't worry; it belongs to a female BMW rider.

    Last I knew, she rode an Airhead; black with pink pinstripes...

    That's Elizabeth's tent, I think.

    Things are going well on the Gillette trip.

    The first day I turned on the 4-way flashers and could not turn them off. Finally after an hour of driving I had to remove the flasher module and plug it in again. That took care of it. I wonÔÇÖt turn them on again.

    Was also dripping a little oil. Had to tighten the chrome valve covers and that took care of this issue.

    South Dakota is nothing but grass (few trees). I can see why there were millions of buffalo. Not much traffic on I-90 West bound ($4.00 a gallon make that no surprise)

    I had a flat today. Go figure!!! New Metzler tires and picked up a screw.

    Made it to a gas station with free air (How unusual is that?) and a friendly Gold-Wing owner had a tire repair plugging kit. He fixed it and we are on are away again. I donÔÇÖt go much faster than 65 MPH so I suspect the plug will be OK, it does not leak.

    None the less, while it has been challenging, it so far has been a cool trip and the BMW R1100RT is fun to ride.
