Just saw on the evening local news most of the roads/trails in the Blackhills National Forest that have been closed for the winter and are normally opened about 15 May will not be opened on schedule due to excessive moisture. More moisture is forecast for this weekend which they expect will delay the opening a bit longer. When viewing this in the "big picture" it makes sense.

Well the time is near and the anticipation level is high!!! The Wisconsin contingency is one repair away from being ready to roll west.

Let's hope the moisture situation is long over with by the time we arrive.

Anyone have a final count of how many sidecar will be in attendance?

This evening's local news reported 10.5" of snow today in Custer. Snow is continuing tonight. The National Forest Service reported seasonal road closure gate openings will remain delayed at least through the Memorial Day weekend.

The Wisconsin riders will not be making it this year. Wayne's bike is down and out-kaput!
After all the work done to his transmission it is dead in the water, again.

The weather outlook and trail situation looks a little sketchy so we are hoping for a change that will give you a great gathering.

All we can hope for is that a later year ride can happen. Have fun and ride safe!

Bummer on that sorry to hear it.

It will be a pavement only rally I fear as none of the forest service roads will be open.

I am working on getting stuff together. I am waiting on tires, hopefully to be delivered on 05-28.

If so, then I plan to be there. The tires are really needed if ya know what I mean.

I plan to go if tires arrive and I get it done. Snow? Whazzat? No big deal around here. (SE ID) It snowed early this week, maybe more here and there.
Tough it out, go. Doan be a wuss.... Just go. JMO.

I was just going to ask you and Wayne if I need to hurry up and put a trailer hitch on my vehicle with a 6 cylinder boxer engine. Since I don't have my pick-up anymore to do Ural rescue missions with.
We may not have it all together,
But, together we have it all.

Lee your generosity is complete. Wayne now has a year paid retainer on a national vehicle rescue service. It cost him an arm and a leg but he figures he will make his money back and more.

Seeing that Mr Cobb is not riding much anymore Ural Washington has offered Wayne the job of official road tester for any parts.

He may have lost his mind because all he does is walk around singing one of Willie Nelson's songs: On the road again, I just can't wait to get on the road again...

Tires arrived a day early! OK, more work to get everything ready, but green light.

I don't care about the weather, whatever is just fine, some more fine than others not-so-fine. It can't be worse than Moab and Canyonlands!

I am looking forward to seeing Hong/Scout/J & maybe K there...

A heavy snowstorm dumped 2 feet of snow in the black hills last week, heavy rains the last 3 days have caused massive flooding in the whole area, quite a few roads in the hill city and keystone areas.
