Remember When...

It's a late May, Friday afternoon. I sit in my office with an eye out the window towards an damp outdoors filled with fog and rain. Another good weekend shot to hell. When my computer screen background changes to a different old photo (below), thoughts wander towards past motorcycle trips. Does anyone remember when we all complained about $2 gas and everyone (except Steve M.) used paper road maps because no one had a GPS yet? ...You can click on the photo below to see a better quality one.

May Meeting - May 17th - Dugout in Ute, IA

Meeting Reminder - The May Meeting of the Big Sioux Riders is this Tuesday, May 17th. We will meet at the Gordon Drive HyVee at 6 PM in Sioux City and ride to the Dugout in Ute, IA. The Dugout is one of the Iowa Beef Industry Council's finalists in "Iowa's Best Burger in 2011" contest.

If you missed Gina and Omaha's open houses last weekend, never fear. Bak BMW has a K1600GTL demo bike in. Dave is encouraging riders to come in and take it for a test ride.

Big Sioux Riders Spring Campout Photos

The Eighth Annual Big Sioux Riders Spring Campout is in the bag and it was quite a success. We had a lot of members participate in one way or another, and we had some friends and fellow riders join us. The weather this year was some of the best we have ever had at this event, everything went pretty smoothly, and everyone had a fun and safe weekend.

If anyone would like to add some photos to the collection below or add comments please send them too me. The photos help document the trip and will help me remember the details in the future.

Each year I'm pretty excited about this event when it finally rolls around. It punctuates the end of winter and the beginning of the spring and summer riding and rally season. Thank you everyone who helped out and/or participated!
