anybody thinking of a 'left to right gypsy tour' ?
........ one can never start thinking about the next SW too early
I might be "Big R" retired by then and then I might be able to join. Do you have a URL where I can look at the "Gypsy Tour" route? Sorry we didn't get to meet in Deadwood. RedRover told me you were arrested for disorderly behavior in Sturgis. <wait for it, wait for it> Just Kidding!

As I was playing with the map I saw there is a "St. Francis Kansas Motorcycle Museum". Might be worth a stop for lunch!

I have been to Wall SD a few times. Actually too many times, because one time is enough. That said, Wall is a "rough crowd", so glad you are still safe, sane and out of jail! Besides that, Wall has the best ever ice cream cones!

And then I'd swing thru Phoenix, AZ to check out a trailer manufacture that I want to look at.

7,600 miles if I can make this trip. So figuring riding 8 hours each day it's just over 14 days of JUST riding not including the stops along the way. Looks like I need to start making some plans.
"holy-H-crap" that would be quite the ride! Are you retired Sir?

1,310 miles for me. Two day trip, but I'll likely do 800 to 900 on day one to make day two a lighter ride with more arrival day hangout time.

1234 miles if we are still in Florida and not visiting family in Mass so two days if taking the direct route or five to six days on backroads haven't decided yet

Yes I am but not by choice...… Disabled veteran and couldn't work any longer. My biggest hurtle is the funds to do that long of a trip.

There will be a SWX thread as the organizers get solid details nailed down. Alls I have seen is that it's 14-17 July 2020 at the Gettysburg Days Inn.
