I'm about to purchase a motorcycle and my wife ok'ed me going to Sturgis. I'm going to try to meet up with a buddy of mine there. But are there any other Travelpodders planning to head to Sturgis Aug 1st - 9th?

Quote from my friend Chuck, who spent 5 months riding his bicycle all the way around the USA - "Nobody says you have to order an entree in the restaurant of life, you'll only be here once! Order the sampler, try as many as you can before you're full; odds are one (of) the items on this menu does more for you than you ever thought. And if I'm wrong, tell the waiter that his menu sucks, throw the cook aside and invent your own masterpiece. Just pour 'em all in, all your favorite ingredients. With enough imagination, any combination will work -- there are no recipes for the paths still awaiting discovery."

It's got a back seat and saddlebags, but I took those off for riding around near the house. And she's not going to ride with me until next year probably that way I can have plenty of time to get comfortable and learn how to ride.

So, how was Sturgis? I used to go every year. I miss my Harleys!!! They're in storage. I hope some day I can ship them to China.
