Sturgis ....... again

So, one of my friends just got a pretty 2016 FLTRU. So a few of us were standing around in my driveway looking it over, and having a few beers. One of the guys, goes, "So, John, you going to ride to Sturgis this year?"

Thinking he was going to make an excuse to not go, I naively said, "Yeah, John........................."



So............................


We head for the Black Hills on July 30th for the week before the rally.

So, I guess I'll have a few bikes following me out there this year.

Technically we're going to Sturgis, in fact we might even drop down the first exit, run up through town to main street and take a couple pictures, before heading back out to the interstate on the way to SW. That'll be day 2 of our SW ride, staying in Cody that night.
On the way back we're swinging wide to the south.

Sturgis MC rally has turned into a expensive zoo. I stay clear because there is just too many drunks on bikes.

That's the reason we go the week before..... everything is set up, but no crowds, no idiots yet..... and prices are not at rally levels.

Last year we met up with sfcusaret2004 and his much better half, and another couple, and had a cook out at my cabin. Very good time...... Army brothers always have a good time.
