WARNING here! If you scroll down, there is an almost nude lady in the photo below, just to warn ya!
More about Sturgis?? The picture above is actually the year before I got to go for the first time. I really like it because of the picture of “camp”. Camping is a big part of our Sturgis experience and some years really roughing it has included an outhouse and solar bag showers. My Sturgis years ran from 1994-2002. When I think of the trip we call “Sturgis” and what it means to me, I come up with the chance to spend a full week with up to 15 of the best friends a person could ever have. I think one of the reasons behind why our group goes (besides the bikes) is because it was a fun event that happened once a year so everyone knew in advance which week we would be spending together.
This picture is of a small town in Wyoming called Sundance that we faithfully visit every year. The top picture is of me and 3 of “the boys” just clowning around. I rarely get into the Sturgis pictures because I am always the one behind the camera. The second picture is still Sundance, not Sturgis! In the whole area of southern South Dakota and northern Wyoming bikes pretty much take up parking everywhere! Most of the towns designate “bike only” parking and then let the bikers park on the edges of the street and then have a row in the middle of the street.
I posted this last picture because when you say Sturgis, this is typically what everyone thinks of, women wandering around with no clothes on! Please note: This Is Not Me!! This is just some woman in Sundance in her bikini bottom with stickers over her nipples. Typically you don’t see too much full nudity in Sturgis or any of the other towns because they have set laws in to place that make this illegal. But yea, the stickers make it legal.
This is getting long so I will wrap it up with the preview of next week, what is it like to cook for 15 people, while camping. And oh yea, I still haven’t told you why my tour ended in 2002.
