    Yeah, I'm here too, but you're right, the SD site is pretty dead. Maybe we can liven things up when spring comes around and put a couple of rides together.

    I didn't mention, I'm from Huron, I ride a 2002 1800 R-S. I try to get to the Black Hills a couple times a year on the bike, and sometimes I can work a trip for work. Will see what happens next season. I have some Wing riding, and Ultra Classic riding friends around Huron that I do day rides with sometimes.

    Default hey West river

    You guys have some of the best riding on the planet... I lived in Sturgis and then bought a place in Newell S.D. but now reside in AZ... Could no longer take the harsh winters... would like to find a spot to rent for the summer 2012...West river of course... Love riding the Hills... anybody ever stop at the mercantile in Crow Butte? Or the Mercantile in Alladin Wy? Rode that route a bazillion times but always want just one more ride... How about Hoover S.D. or Buffalo S.D. or Reva S.D. or Belvidere S.D. Ah so many places so little time.... I surely am fortunate for having actually lived there... How about Mt Rushmore or Crazy Horse....
    Wall was always a blast, remeber settin down to a beverage and a free donut for being a veteran....
    But the coolest small town goes to Rochford S.D. followed closely by White lake S.D. but thats East River..
    Could go on for pages but most find it boring so goin for a ride supposed to be 65 degrees today and thats above zero.... The Native Americans believe the Black Hills are sacred and I tend to think that also...

    Just checked the board. First time post I believe. Love my X. Kind of a loner. Reside roughly half way between Sioux Falls and Vermillion. I'll try to be more attentive and make it to some rides. later...

    Yeah keep an eye out. I was talking to some guys at work about a ride I found online. It says that you can hit up to 4 states in 4-6 hrs. Sounds like a fun ride and from what I have heard it is a pretty ride. We have not picked a date, but I for sure will post on here If anyone would like to join.

    Start in Sioux Falls then head to Luverne, Minn. to make 4th State

    I have been amazed at the number of VTXs I have seen this spring in the Sioux Falls area. God forbid they become as commonplace as the HD brand.....

    Default New VTX Rider

    Just thought I would say hello. I am a brand new VTX owner. After owning and riding a much smaller other brand motorcycle, for the past 10 years, I made the leap and bought a 2006 VTX 1300 R. I am in Rapid City for the summers and spend my winters in Arizona, so I ride year round. I have to say I have only ridden a few miles on my new to me bike, but I already LOVE it. Hope to see ya on the road.

    I had a similar experience coming from a smaller bike. I rode a 360 Yamaha, then didn't ride at all for 21 years, then bought my 1800 VTX R. It was quite a shock just to start riding, and to go up in weight quite a bit compared to my old bike. But I love it and never looked back. I'd love to try out a new BMW but for now the vtx seems to work out just fine for me.
