Since only eleven members from Florida attended STAR 2014 this year, I thought I would share some photos from one of my rides there. Due to the rainy weather over the first weekend of STAR in Rapid City, the first opportunity for riding in the Black Hills during good weather came on Monday, June 9th. The adjacent map shows the route through the Black Hills and Custer State Park, including the Needles Highway.
As usual, I was fired up to attend the STAR 2014 in Rapid City, SD. However, due to the earlier than usual date, I decided to take on a “Candy Ass” 900, and join the MS Trailering Association. The fun roads (Yellowstone N.P., US 212 (The Beartooth), and US 14 (Big Horn Mountain Highway)) from North Idaho to the site are usually still closed for snow. Droning on I-90 on my V-Strom didn’t expect to be much fun. Hence the trailer.
