This is the current color version that they have online only.  I guess I just assumed it's up-to-date.

Don't really matter to me, I ain't goin' nowhere near that place!   :o ;D

LOL... yea, there are demons there. Broke my hand in that same area on my 300 ::)

Glad you're coming hipster.   Are you coming through Watertown?

How long did it take everyone to get their permit in the mail?  I haven't ordered yet.

Hank, my permit came in about 4 days if I remember correctly.  It comes from some place on the East coast if I remember correctly.  I almost threw it out thinking it was junk mail. 
Hipster, glad you're making it out again.

I grew up in Bismarck, ND. I've lived in Minneapolis, MN for 8 years now. Started riding motorcycles only a few years ago... 2007 I think??? Got into it fast though. Love it. Had a 2007 KLR650, then a 2008 KLR650.... I now have a 2009 BMW F800GS and a 2010 BMW G450X. More than likely I will be trailering out with my G450X since it is a serious enduro/off-road machine and I'd like to explore some single track in the Black Hills. I can't wait!

for those purchasing trail use tags once you get to the hills...

Most of the forest service places close at 5pm on Friday (Spearfish).  The one in Rapid is open on Saturday but the one near Pactola is open 7 days a week.  So if you don't get your tags by 5pm on Friday and don't want to ride to Rapid, Pactola is not terribly far away and it's a fun ride, on dirt or pavement.

Sorry, havn't been paying attention. We need special pernits to ride on the trails? If so, how do I get them?

by mail.  click the link.  right hand side half way down the page.

or buy them at a NFS site.  Spearfish is closest to FNF but closes at 4:30 on Friday.

Got my permit.  I didn't see instructions on where to mount?  Do they care?

I'm wondering the same thing. Thought I'd read that the permit must be mounted where "visible when riding" but I can't find that web page now. I feel like mounting it on the bottom of the skid plate but that probably won't fly.

I happen to talk with hayduke.klr07 several weeks ago. (works for the forest service) He mounted it on the left side so it could be seen as you passed another rider on the trail, mainly the "trail police".  So that's where I mounted mine.  However, I'm not going to stick that big ugly over-sized orange sticker on my scooter.  So I cut a circle out of the middle with all the info on it and stuck it on the side.  Still don't like it, but its smaller!
