So it's all over, almost. All the preparation, planning, and most of the work on the bike. Hell, I even BOUGHT a bike for my first-ever ride to Sturgis, South Dakota, for the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
It's safe to say I've spent literally days staring at maps, reading online accounts of others' Sturgis experiences, talking to my friend Milt about tips on things to see and places to go, talking some more about it with Angel and Jim, and a little over three weeks from now I'm rolling to see it for myself.
And if you're reading this, I suspect I don't have to explain WHY I'm going to Sturgis, except to say I've never been, and I don't want to be put into the box without saying "I went to Sturgis", and I want to follow that with, "...and I rode."
