i want to ride to sturgis
Well, let's get a group together and make the trip.

3-day out
3 or 4 days there
3-days back

I have made the run with large groups, small groups and solo.
It is a hard trip to do solo and big groups are cool but just too much of a pain.
A group of 5 or 6 is by far the best and funnest.

You better have good tires and proven rain gear to make this run. On one trip out, one the guys (that most likely had never ridden more than 50 miles in one sitting before leaving) was very under prepared. His Walmart rain gear lasted about five miles when we hit the Kansas rain storms. I think he was still wet when we got to Sturgis. :screwy:

Good rain gear is worth a lot on a road trip. Sitting out a rain storm only works once or twice. Riding in the rain will happen sooner or later.

I'd love to ride out to Sturgis some time. I might need a bigger bike. I've only got a 3.5 gal tank. I'd be stopping a lot. But definitely up for something soon.

You know it's bad when you see the title of this thread and think to yourself, "Two revolvers?"
