Going to Sturgis

Yep going to Sturgis again, been there a several times once on the old Triumph and the rest on Harleys. This year I am taking the LT I bought this spring. My riding buddies are giving me a hard time about the LT but they will quit after looking at my license plate for a few days. I am looking forward to getting to ride the big Ol girl on the canyon roads. The HD will stay home and sit in the garage maybe take it somewhere later this year. So if your around Sturgis Aug 6-10 and see a 03 Anthracite (grey) LT ask if it is me. that should be fun.

Re: Going to Sturgis

That's where I had my first BMW experience. One old guy in our group rode a 1200RS and we couldn't keep up with him. We convinced him into going on some of the HD demo rides but only if we went with him on a BMW demo ride. The rest is history!

Obviously if you're hoping to put the 'big girl' through her paces in the canyons, you'll have to go early or stay late or else the curves will be at a walking pace.

Have a great trip!!!

Re: Going to Sturgis

We had plans for a Sturgis trip this year too. But other expenses and repairs ate away at our budget, so Sturgis will have to wait for next year

Have enough fun to bring some back to share with us!

I'm headed that way in the morning. You won't catch me there during the rally though -- too many bikers in my way

I'm taking the Connie this year. It will be her first trip to Needles Hwy!
