2018 VFRD SUMSUM 4

Recommended Posts

The 2018 Summer Summit 4

July 10th - 13th (Tue - Fri)

Custer, SD

 

Host Hotel/ Location: The Rocket Motel  -  Reserved under VFRD SumSum 4

Gathering & Meal(s) will be hosted at their Gazebo out back

 

Tuesday, July 10th: Arrivals

Wednesday, July 11th: Area Rides

Thursday, July 12th: Area Rides/ Dinner/ Wrap up

Friday, July 13th: Departures

 

UPDATE:

June 23 - My attempt at uploading the day route gps files.  They were created in TYRE and are .gpx files. (right click and download.)  Good for TomTom & Garmin

Devils Day.gpx

Finding Nemo.gpx

Minuteman Tour.gpx

I'm not responsible for errors in how it uploads to your system, missing waypoints or unknown gravel roads (except for jfviffer). If a MOD wishes to edit, should I have done this wrong, I believe I uploaded the files to the 'Routes and Custom POI's' in the downloads section.

June 14th - Itineraries mailed with name tags.  If you have your pouch from SS3, please use that - otherwise, please remember to bring your name badge and a neck pouch.

I'll see if I have any left over from previous, but just in case (boy scouts) come prepared.

- Confirmed Thurs. dinner, being catered by Don at the Rocket.  I can smell it already!

June 10 - Shirt order confirmed.  Event added to VFRD Calendar - add your RSVP if you like.

June 1 -  Registration closed and time to finalize the orders.

- Rice Honda Suzuki in Rapid City has come on as the Bike Shop Sponsor!!  Pre-order your tires 2 weeks (or earlier) before the meet and get 35% off!!!

800-841-3706 and ask for Jon (parts mgr).  More to come on this.  RiceHondaSuzuki

- Logo finalized and ready for shirts & stuff orders.

May 21 - just getting the shirt order organized (style, quantity, etc).  Will be removing the registration link on June 1st to process.

- logo for signature icon will be forthcoming.

- once I have it completed, I will email an event itinerary to everyone who registered, including maps.  Happy to post GPS route files if interested.  

 

NOTES:

- If you are trailering your bike(s) please inform Brenda or Don when booking so they can arrange/ reserve space.

Brenda (hotel owner) requested that if someone is going to trailer their motorcycle, to please mention it when reserving a room so that parking can be made available.

 

 

 

Thanks for checking in & mentioning this.   Lead post edited

There is space available along side and behind the motel for trailer/ vehicles.

Might be best to note that Friday is the official departure day.  I was reading the July 10-12 as meaning the departure (checkout) date was Thursday.

I was thinking a show up Tuesday and leave Thursday for a one-day Wednesday meet was a bit too short.  Had booked Thursday night just in case.

A few repeats of the Duffy Lake Loop next year will solidify you, and you'll be golden!

Booked for the trailer I do not yet own.  I'll probably add a day on the end but have not yet decided.  The trailer I plan to own will also be a track day trailer with some sleeping accommodations so I can just sleep the last night in the trailer.  It shall be grand!

Warm to warmer.  Last year, we had a little rain (on the way there and 1 stormy night) but very comfortable.

(F) 80° - 90° during the day: Shorts & T shirts

50° - 57° during the evening: perhaps jeans & a light jacket/ long sleeve

 

If it's sunny - wear sun screen, hat & shades

If it rains - wear a jacket & shades

If it's cool - wear jeans, a jacket & shades

If it's hot - strip down to shorts & your shades
