Live to Ride- Sturgis, South Dakota

A couple weeks ago my hubby and I were on the big-rig headed to deliver a load in Minnesota. As soon as we hit South Dakota we noticed some motorcyclists on the road.


Traveling in the same direction as we were.


One- after another,

after another.


Soon enough, we were surrounded by hundreds of gorgeous Harleys and that's when we realized that we were headed straight for the famed Sturgis bike rally. It was the 70th anniversary for the bike rally and the closer we got, the more cyclists.



Although my husband and I have been Harley enthusiasts and have owned a 1978 Harley Sportster named Sally, we have never been to Sturgis- but always dreamed of going. Well this, apparently was our lucky day. I would have never imagined the magnitude of the event and how many thousands of people and awesome bikes we would see! How lucky can a girl get?



It reminded me of a funny email that I once received:
10 IMPORTANT THINGS MY MOTORCYCLE HAS TAUGHT ME
1.) The only good view of a thunderstorm is in your rear view mirror.
2.) Four wheels move the body; two wheels move the soul.
3.) Life may begin at 30, but it doesn't get real interesting until about 75 mph.
4.) Midnight bugs taste just as bad as Noon time bugs.
5.) Sometimes it takes a whole tank full of gas before you can think straight.
6.) A bike on the road is worth two in the shed.
7.) Young riders pick a destination and go; old riders pick a direction and go.
8.) Catching a yellow jacket in your shirt at 75 mph can double your vocabulary.
9.) If you can't get it going with bungee cords and duct tape, it's serious.
10.) Only a biker knows why a dog sticks his head out of a car window.
