Sturgis Journey

Tomorrow I hit the road, headed to Sturgis for the first time. Definitely a “bucket list” thing for me. I’m trailering the bike to Des Moines, riding to SD. (If I didn’t have a conference in Iowa in 10 days, I would ride the whole trip - need too much crap for the conference.)
Today is final bike prep, truck and trailer once over.
Thought I’d start a thread as a place to drop pics etc.
Hope to see you out there...
Ron - aka Skid

Being that I'm slammed at work I will not be going to this yearly event.

Looking forward to your updates on your adventure.

Looking forward in seeing some pictures along the way.

Safe travels brother.

Great looking bike by the way.

As a first timer you have to be getting really stoked about the trip. I've had the pleasure of going to Sturgis 4 times and enjoyed the hell out of it each time. Disneyland for Adults! Enjoy the trip. Are you staying for Shark Week? Hope you can make that too. Have fun and take lot of pics to post here. Those of us who are forced to live it vicariously through you and others are depending on it!

"....voice of reason"

??? That's better than the normal adjectives I get, like "crackpot" ... "crazy ol' fart" .... "crazy old biker" .... etc. I'll take it, just for today! Lol When people start talking nice to me or about me I start to look over my shoulder .....
