  1. There were a lot of bikes on the pass that day so Merv took pictures of every bike he could to be sure he didn't miss us. Keep looking until you find your self (selves). Thanks.
  2. Stoggy, That first picture is looking out onto Hell Roaring Plateau. You can take a jeep trail up to the top of the slide area but then you have to walk as it is all Wildernass Area beyond that. Lots of nice lakes up there to fish. Cold as ice but apparently the fish don't mind.
  3. Have more just can't sit at the computer too long. Not doing too bad as long as I don't move. 8) How's your arm Ann? We'd be quite a pair together!!
  4. Phil, thanks for getting those on here. There is some beautiful country around here. Wish I could have ridden with you all. Jim, can you ship one of those up here?? 8)
  5. Or try this... http://www.greatridesusa.com/Default.aspx?alias=www.greatridesusa.com/bastards
  6. Code Blue is there. I will be picking him up around 8:30 this morning to go mark Saturday's ride. I'll let him know you are here.
  7. Looking forward to seeing you again Greg. 8)
  8. Thanks for taking care of them Craig, Greg, Jim and the rest. Exactly what this club is all about. See you soon. :y:
  9. Just thought of something guys. They have the entrance to the airport torn up as they are putting in a round about (stupidest idea I have heard the city come up with but whatever). The hotel has a shuttle so it would probably be a good idea to have the gals catch the shuttle down and meet them at the hotel. If you want to meet them just be prepared for bumps and dips and gravel and a huge mess. Just a heads up so don't say I didn't warn you. 8)
  10. Ride safe guys and I do believe the guest list is now complete....TIGGER IS COMING!!
  11. Ride safe everyone. See you Monday. :y:
  12. Had we not got started on this last year and gotten everything into motion, I would probably just need a very soft room by Thursday. However, we did get started really early and everything is in motion and now it's all coming together nicely....at least I think so. Just on cruise control now. Can't wait until Thursday and folks start arriving!! 8)
  13. I know some of you are riding and having your wives fly in to Billings. They have the entrance to the airport torn up as they are putting in a round about (stupidest idea I have heard the city come up with but whatever). The hotel has a shuttle so it would probably be a good idea to have the gals catch the shuttle down and meet them at the hotel. If you want to meet them just be prepared for bumps and dips and gravel and a huge mess. Just a heads up so don't say I didn't warn you. 8)
  14. There is NO HELMET law here unless you are under 16 then you MUST wear one. Speed limit on most secondary highways is 65 or 70 depending on the road. Speed limit on the interstate is 75. GENERALLY you are safe at 10 over with no hassles unless you get a crabby patrol man. Beer and wine are available at convienience stores, grocery stores, etc. Harder liquor is available at stae liquor stores, other non-state owned liquor stores and bars. You can only smoke inside in bars and casinos. Outside you can smoke pretty much any where you want unless posted no smoking. Those yellow signs with the deer on them are there for a reason. We have lots of wildlife. Deer, elk, bear, big horn sheep, mountain goat on the large end, raccoon, beaver, rabbits, etc, etc, etc, on the small end. Keep your eyes open for your safety and everyone elses. Most corners can be taken at 10 or maybe even 20 over until you get on the Beartooth Pass. The signs up there are generally pretty accurate and given some corners have a 1,000+ foot drop on one side, a pretty good idea. Add in the possibility of a fallen rock in the road and ......well, I think you get the picture. Only one wife per man and one husband per woman. Sorry Burt. ;) This year we only have two seasons....winter and construction. There are a couple of small construction projects occurring on the pass. There will be a few short sections of gravel where the asphalt has been removed. Given this is not a high speed road to begin with it should not pose any problems. Just be aware and careful. Construction areas are marked and no delays are anticipated for the weekend. If you have any other specific questions let me know and I will see if I can answer them. If not I'll just make something up and stick with it until you prove me wrong. 8) ONE week from tomorrow!!! Whoo Hoo !!:yho
  15. If you are interested in getting a 2009 National Meet t-shirt we will be getting additional shirts printed right after the meet. Please PM or e-mail me the size and quantity you want. E-mail 2009eet@theVMC.com . Price should be around $12 shipped if we have a large enough order (50+). Slightly higher if not.
  16. Beer and wine available at convienience stores, grocery stores, etc. Liquor at state liquor stores and other liquor stores and not quite as readily available but I know where to find it.
  17. You are welcome to haul ass just as fast as you want on your way here or on your way home but during the meet our main concern is safety. I read stories about broken bones and busted bikes at the SE meet and wondered what the hell? I like to go fast too (not as fast as a lot of folks... H&B come to mind 8) ) but we will be riding with a lot of different people with a lot of different riding abilities. This is intended to be a gathering of friends, many of which have never met other than through the internet, not a race to see who can go the fastest through the twisties. I'm not saying we are going to be doing 10 mph below the speed limit but will try to keep it between 5 and 10mph over so that hopefully no one feels uncomfortable or gets bored or gets a ticket. If you want to plan your own ride I guess that's your perrogative. Our rides were planned to be enjoyable for riders of all skill levels and to enjoy the beauty of Montana. By the way, Burt is spot on about the guard rails and hundreds if not a thousand feet from the edge of the road to where you or your bike may come to rest if you miss a corner. Would really rather avoid that scenario. Hope that doesn't turn you off to our plans.
  18. We now have a National Meet website which is up and running partially. It is at http://vmcnationalmeet.com/ so if you want check it out. It is currently being refined and additional features and pages added. It will be complete shortly. Thanks for your help Ann and Matt!! :y: :y:
  19. I just want to be sure that everyone knows there is $750 available per Region to help fund your Regional Events. Regional Event funding requests must be coordinated with and submitted by your Regional Reps. Individual requests will not be considered so if you have an idea you'd like to present, talk to your Rep. If you have any questions, shoot me a PM or ask it here.
