69 days til Sturgis

How about a couple meet and greets? And a ride or two?

I'll wave at you when I'm heading back to Illinois from the Black hills. I will be coming back on the weekend that the rally starts.

I don't like lines

So 62 days for me before I head west

Leave July 27.... turn around and head for home Aug 3.

Here's my route:

I80 to I380 (Iowa City to Waterloo) then Iowa 20 to I29 (Sioux City Ia), then I29 North to SD44..... Then all the way through South Dakota on SD44. Nice scenery.... very little traffic.

Theres a stretch of road where I380 and 20 meet around Waterloo, that is all torn up almost all the way to the Silver Eagle HD. Major construction and traffic very very congested and slow.
Check on that progress before you take that 7 miles stretch. Might cut over to old 218 around Laporte City before getting back on Hwy 20.

Already on top of that.....

And this one for South Dakota

Two years ago we had to ride through water a foot deep and 150 feet long on SD 44 by Parkston. In hindsight it added to the adventure...... but it didn't seem like it at the time

Sturgis is no longer on my agenda. I can have more fun watching flies get fried on a bug Zapper.
