Black Hills Summer 2011 Ride

Hey, you riders in the Black Hills region: Let's plan a V-Strom ride for this summer. We can gather on a Saturday or Sunday morning for breakfast, then spend the day riding together in this great place. Reply to this thread if you are interested. Let's pick a day and a meeting spot.

I'd be in, if the date works out. Saturday's better for me cause Sundays would be me riding home in the dark, most likely, and deer and such.

I might be interested ..beautiful area. Are you thinking a one day ride?

Why Motorcycles? Because Golf, Soccer, Football and Baseball only require One Ball

Yes, I'm thinking about this as a one day event. We meet for breakfast, then go riding for the day as a group and stop for lunch somewhere along the way. We certainly have a large number of routes to pick from.

It has been suggested that we dedicate this ride to the memory of MountainAir (Jimmy Morris). I really like that idea and think we should do it!

Let's start by picking a month and I go ahead and put June out there for consideration. I suggest one of the following days: June 4, 11, 18, 25, or 26. Are any of these good or bad for you?

I'm in favor of the June 25 date. The 18th may work. Our fam is going to Italy from June 1st -June 16 to visit our foreign exch. students family. Thats why the 18 could work, but...iffy. The earlier dates just won't work.

I really want to do this with you guys, and dedicate it to Jimmy. (He was always Jimmy to me, but Jim otherwise)

Hello Steve!
Great to hear from you! Glad you are planning on this. June 25 would be awesome. Let's wait a little as see if we get some more feedback, but maybe we can get the 25th penciled in and see what folks think.

OK, let's lock this in for June 25, 2011. What is your favorite breakfast spot? What time would you like to meet?

Jimmy Morris Dedication Ride in the Black Hills - June 25th

OK, here are some further details:

This ride will be dedicated to Jimmy Morris. Meet at 7 AM at the Millstone Restaurant, 2010 West Main Street, Rapid City, South Dakota. (This was a favorite breakfast spot of Jimmy's.) At breakfast, we'll make plans for the morning ride to end up at a great lunch spot, then plan the afternoon from there. If you want to skip breakfast, show up at the Millstone no later than 8 AM. All bikes are welcomed! If you have any questions or ideas or comments, just post them in this thread or send me a PM.

Thanks!
