All pulled from weather.com, they provide averages for given cities.
Not. I have a limited amount of time available for a solo vacation. I'm spending 2008's budget on the Spank Rally combined with the IBA National. I suppose one day I'll have had enough of LD rallies, and then I'll go to an MOA National.
It'll be my first National in 8 years. Yes, I will be there!

Several of us from the EMOs of Las Vegas will be making the treak to the Rally this year. In fact we plan to make a two week trip to meet up with an old friend and ride, Yellowstone, the black hills, hit the rally then loop through the colorado rockies with a stop at Panoia before heading home to Vegas. Accept for leaving Vegas the heat shouldn't be too bad. Early morning rides in and out of vegas are the norm for us during the summer months. Nice to have a rally relatively close to home (999miles) for the first time in many years. See you all in Wyoming.
Have fun and ride safe,
You bet your sweet bippy I'm going. I am going taking all of July and part of August off. I am going to rally for almost two months.
The best thing about Gillette is being there with all of you and drinking beer. I won't get much time during the rally because my responsability will be all of you.
Now the other thing about the Gillette rally will be the razor factory tour. All us guys will be clean shaven and the ladies will have silky smooth legs.
They get the steel for making the razors from HD's left over from the Sturgis rally from the prior year. There is a huge grinder at the beginning of the razor factory where all the left over HD's are dropped into. From there the metal is melted down and at the end out comes several different brands of Gillette razors.
I guess it is quite amazing. I heard about this from my friend' cousin' friend whose uncle has a sister whose cousin' step-father' grand father who has a sister that had a brother-in-law whose beer drinking buddy worked at the razor factory in Gillette. WOW! simply amazing.
I'll see you there.

Now I just have to decide if I'm going to extend the trip the week before or the week after..

Definitely going... I don't care what the nay-sayers have to say about Wyoming, it's not always where you are that makes for an interesting time! If I'm not working as a vendor, I'll volunteer for something. If I'm working... well... I'll be working...

3000 miles round trip at 45 miles per gallon means $200 round trip for gas...
$220 for cheap motel for 4 nights means $880 for rally motel
$100 for normal motel to and from
$450 for food for the duration for wife and I
$200 for rally fees and misc junk
So, about $1850 for a 4 day rally not including tires, oil, wear and tear.....
yeah, right...... I can attend 20 local rallys for that kind of money and not feel like I am being ripped off
NO, WE WILL NOT BE ATTENDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Am from Polson (NW Montana). Any other NW Montanan's headed to Gillette?
We will be there. I like Rapid_Roy's list. Being from TOTOLand we are always close to the MOA Rally. We can never get long distance, we are just down the road so I don't see to long of a ride. Look for us in a Go-fer cart.
