    I am the WORST at taking pictures. Too busy riding and figuring out where we are, where we're going, and the best spot for lunch.
    Yah, you did "get out of town".

    Good pics. Showed bikes and scenery, and some of what you experienced other than just gas station stops. Thanks.

    LOL, nope. We didn't see any climbers that day. I was at Devil's Tower about 30 years ago and remember seeing a few climbers on their way up, but none that day. We hiked maybe half a mile around the base and that was it. Hiking in off road boots is tough work.

    We had spent that morning rebuilding Tim's carburetor in a parking lot (vacuum line popped off during a minor incident the day before and sucked in some dirt), so we also didn't have a lot of time to hang around DT before skedaddling back to our base in Rapid City, SD. Would have been neat to see in the sunset, but riding three hours in the dark in rural WY and SD didn't have much appeal.

    I think damn near everyone else in the country got there; DT in Wyoming and the assorted attractions in the Black Hills of SD were absolutely JAM PACKED. Simply throbbing with teeming humanity. Lots of people hit the road this summer and headed to some version of the great outdoors.

    Sturgis (the event) was still three weeks away, but we passed through the town three or four times and it was already jam-packed with pirate types, and the t-shirt shoppes seemed to be thriving. The local Wally World in Rapid City (about 30 miles from Sturgis) even had a huge display of Sturgis 2021 t-shirts, hats, etc.

    The paved roads in the "tourist trap" portion of the Black Hills (Custer SP, Rushmore, Needles Highway, Sylvan Lake, etc.) were also absolutely jam-packed at all times. It made for lots of irritation and more than a little danger at times. We used gravel and dirt roads whenever possible, but sometimes you can't avoid pavement.

    We had lots of wonderfully isolated riding on and off pavement, but lots of roads were also just plain overrun with bleating, stinking, waddling, sweating humanity. Long conga lines of side-by-sides and UTVs were sometimes an unpleasant sudden surprise in remote areas, but there were also lots of places you didn't see them at all. I think there must be routes they tend to use more than others, but I never quite figured out how to tell beforehand.

    We found some great off-pavement GPX tracks from Rever and assorted randos on ADVrider, and I created several.

    Despite a few minor frustrations with overcrowding, it was a great trip. It'll be many, many moons before I find a way to take a whole week off work and get that far west again. I'd say maybe pick some other month for a trip to the Black Hills besides July or August, though...

    Went out early this morning. A quarter mile from my destination my thermos fell off of the bike and the scoundrel behind me ran it over. The coffee stayed put though.
    I rode to Ocean Grove, then north thru the beach towns before the throngs of tourists and beachgoers arrived

    Man, I'm used to giving wide berth to landscaping trucks after a rake flew over my head on the freeway, now I have to watch for GS1150's too?

    One always needs to watch those low budget guys on liter plus sized GSs.

    Went for a 400 mile trip in the truck.......to get this:

    Tracer pic.jpg

    (Sorry for the small pic, tired old man here)

    2020 Yamaha Tracer 900GT, 1,462 miles, still under warranty until November.

    Unfortunately, the trip completely wore me out, so only rode it from the street to the back porch (200 feet). If the rain holds off tomorrow, I'll spend some time getting to know her a little better!

    Just too tired right now to do much more than read the manual and see what all these knobs and buttons control tonight.
