Sturgis Rally is Here

Sturgis Biker Rally

Sturgis Biker Rally

 

Sturgis Rally week is here. It will be interesting to see how many will attend this year, given unemployment figures still up and the high price of gas. It is always exciting to rub shoulders with fellow bikers. Over the years it is interesting to see generally how the type of attendees are changing. I’ve run into a lot more professional types, doctors, lawyers, accountants and businessmen. Gone are the days of the wild biker club exclusives at Sturgis. There still is a wild side of Sturgis. The Buffalo Chip Campground still claims the policy of “anything goes.”

Whatever “walk of life” you claim, Sturgis has something for everyone.

I’ll keep you posted on this year’s Rally.

Finished another Sturgis Trip

Well, we finished another fun-filled week in the Black Hills and Sturgis. As always, we stayed in a quiet remote campground called Roubaix. It is a beautiful area with pines and a lake. Not some dusty, hot pasture, where you pay premium prices and enjoy loud noise all night long.

The journey to and from Sturgis were great routes, staying our first night in the Big Horn National Forest, and on our return route, traveling over the Bear Tooth Hwy and down through Yellowstone Park.

It is always a pleasure to travel with good bikers, who know how to have fun without the expense on others. (To read our daily blog of the trip, click on the “Sturgis Trip 2010” icon to the right.)

I’m looking forward to next year’s trip, which may be through the northern California coastal areas and a few national parks, or maybe a Colorado trip through some old mining towns and an overnight stay at Lake Powell.

Until then…
