Keeping It Fun - Sturgis With Mike Owens
Last December, I mentioned to Michael that I was thinking about riding to Sturgis in 2007. He said it was a “great idea” and so the planning began. We knew the trip would
require equipment, fortitude and 3000 miles of hard riding. What we didn’t know, is just how much rain and bad weather we would experience. The trip can be best described as
a quest and we logged over 600 miles in the rain and bad weather.
Keep in mind, this quest was to last two weeks. Every item had to be carried or purchased when we got there. Michael was able to carry the minimum he needed, on his bike. I had a different problem; a chopper carries one person, clothing and a tooth brush. My solution was to tow a trailer and so the construction began. Now we could take other equipment, which would make our stay in Sturgis comfortable.
This was our camp in tent city
The days were long, but we still found time to target practice.
