Hacks at the Billings MT. MOA Rally

Wandered around a few times and photographed a few of the Rigs / other bikes present.

Not a "Hack" but interesting.....Matt Parkhouse's "Eco Friendly" Electric Toaster

I seem to run across this Rig / Rider every couple of years around the Western US

Obviously a "pooch" hauler....

Kayaking anyone?

Michelin sold a lot of rubber.

Grass camping space was at a premium & crowded...this area was right along a major road...had to be noisy. I think a lot of folks were in motels. Final attendance was around 6000 I heard.

I returned for the closing ceremonies hoping to win a door prize or something....of course I left empty handed. There were a lot of European Bike Touring prizes.....when you think about it, I would likely pass....."Air Fare Not Included".....Prize for one person...would end up costing thousands out of pocket for your "Prize"...

Nice photos, thanks. I had a family reunion on the same dates as the rally do had to pass on it this year. Did they announce the location for next year?
