“You going to Sturgis” I am headed east and the rest of the two wheel world is heading west towards Sturgis, but at gas and rest stops you can’t tell which way anyone came from. It is assumed that if you are riding then you are headed to Sturgis.
“Yes, eventually, in fact I just went through there a few days ago and will be going back, but first I am going….” They look at me like i am crazy. It is kind of neat to be headed the other way right now because I can see them all coming at me, its like a moving motorcycle show and quite entertaining. So far it is about 10 riders to every 20 trailers and it is obvious that some of the riders just unloaded from the trailer and are being followed by chase vehicles now. At every stop it is starting to be mini Sturgis and the excitement on their faces show.
All those trailers headed to Sturgis! What would Sturgis be without all the good looking girls and all the crazies and how else would they get there if they didn’t go in cages and trailers, in fact I am glad the crazies aren’t riding! I have been keeping up with the Sturgis news at nights and they are predicting a larger turnout than last year. Based on the traffic headed that way I would agree but the local predictions are based on statistics and not what they see. The stats they use are number of accidents, arrests, tickets and worst of all, fatalities based on this time last year. All statistics are up from last year. I did see one upside down in the median and saw some stupid riding that scared me.
Headed east and am sick of corn fields, lots and lots of corn fields! The old barns are neat, the wind mills are neat,
I ended up in Sioux Falls SD on sunday morning. I could see this large old church steeples above everything so I headed for it. Some of the best city riding is early on Sunday mornings, no traffic and easy to go through the middle of big cities. Sioux Falls isn’t all that big a city but the ride through it was really enjoyable and had a really good feel to it. I think I like Sioux Falls.
So, where am I headed?
It’s been pretty slow financially so I been talking to Jesse, Frank, and brother Bob about changing that. Jim is trying to talk us out of it, but says he is in if we do it. It is too hot around here right now and the agents are around all the banks and the trains, besides I don’t want to take these poor peoples money so I think we should rob a bank in Minnesota. Them dumb blockhead farmers should be easy to handle and I hear there is lots of money in the Northfield bank.
