Planning Our Trip to Sturgis - 2010 Part 1

April 17th, 2010 | 1 Comment

My buddy Craig and I decided it was finally time for a real road trip from our southern location, one that every biker or miker (see article in Ramblings) needs to make at least once in your life time. Perhaps this would be the ride that lets us graduate to full fledged bikers, I mean you need to have a serious ride like this under your belt, or a wife or girlfriend with a rose tattoo on her boob with your initials on it to be a real biker, right? Well since the tattoo thing is out of our hands, I think this ride may do the job since the route we are planning is about 1700 miles one way. Fortunately for us our friend Bernie who doesn’t ride wants to come along with us as our escort, which will allow us to pack more gear for our camping adventure at the Buffalo Chip campground as well as be there for us in case one of our bikes can’t make the journey.

There will be many edits to this article as we plan our trip and we really need your comments and suggestions on this one because… well we just need them.
