Thanks fer the tips...
I gotta friend on the RancheroUSA site who lives in Colorado Springs who`ll give us the "Royal treatment"...
Our guide to Pikes Peak, I hope your suggestion & Cripple Creek are on the agenda too...
She keeps us informed on weather on the mountain range she can see from her home ~ however, I`ve not heard her mention the trolly???

Dennis be sure you check out the needles highway and spearfish canyon both are very beautiful. I am going out there for my 1 year anniversary the 25th through the 28th of August.

The entire Black Hills area is a wonderful place to ride, i'm sure you'll enjoy it.

If you can swing the time, you might consider running through Yellowstone while you're at it. Another beautiful area not that far away.

Have a great time, and ride safe.

As the clock ticks away days, the time draws near...
In my case, it`s seconds ~ Very SLOW Secconds being ticked away!!! ;)
I`m lucky to have a "Sturgis Guide" or Veteran if you prefer, to show us what he has seen and done in his several trips to the Black Hills...
I knew he usually goes, but, when I asked Dan if he was going to attend this year, his answer was NO... :(
When I told him I`m going with a friend, he changed his mind... :)

I`ve a couple more items on the Bike to tend to,
1) change oil @ 80, 000 miles...
2) TCLOCS list is mandatory before any long distance ride
3) repair a bracket on the windshield mount
4) find out the reason my auxillary Horn didn`t have good connection saturday...
5) Ride with one of the travelers I ain`t rode with yet

Gotta GO, cain`t sit here all day, I got work to do!!!

I`m surprized NOT to see much talk on this VERY popular annual event amoungst HSN members...
I`ve beena reading and hearing stories about this event all of my adult life...
As have I captain. I've always thought that to be a, pardon my french, Harley, event. At least it used to be. Bike week in Daytona has always been geared toward all bikes (pun intended).

This is the first "Harley event" comment I remember ever hearing...
But I own one, so I reckon I`m allowed to enter into the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally goings on???
ABATE Social Hour on the 13th is in my plans, we (ABATE) are made up of ALL makes of motorcycle riders and fight fer ALL motorcycle riders rights...
I got a couple things on my list accomplished yesterday;
#3) windshield bracket replaced**
#4) Horn working good now!!! Bad Ground was the culprit**
I got a "SKEERED" feeling saturday, when I punched the horn button and just the one stock horn was working, I told the guys I was riding with that , "that SCARED ME!!!"
I sure ain`t wanting to be "out there" with out the LOUD horn in operation...
#1) I`m Still 200 miles away from the schedule on the oil change, got the oil, filter and I`ll put them miles on this weekend~ which will take care of #5) hopefully...
Can Y`all answer this???
Where does the air outta your tires go ???

Well, back in the 80's-90's I remember it being heavy on the Harley's, probably because that was when they regained popularity, for whatever reason. Everyone I know that went, went on a HD.

The air, under pressure, escapes back into the atmosphere. I'd say you've got a rim leak or possible worn shrader valve. Get it fixed before you ride those hundreds of miles. You don't want to miss that 'Royal Treatment' from your friend in Colorado...:wink::wink:

I will be riding from LA to Sturgis and spending 3 days and nights in Yellowstone, finally. I have ridden through the park enroute to other places - Glacier or sturgis etc and never stopped to smell the bear scat. Going to swim in firehole canyon....if it isn't too cold, etc. Everyone should visit this amazingly beautiful National Park. And the best part is that CaptainD and I will be meeting up in Sturgis for a cup of tea.
