Dodging the Roadkill: The Sturgis Chronicles – Part 6

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – For those of you who have been to the Sturgis Rally, you know that the presence of law enforcement stands out like no other.  There’s good reason for that, and I for one, am glad that security is tight.  Not only in downtown Sturgis, but along all of the highways, there were troopers and police.

As we were approaching Rapid City, we started to see a heavy presence of South Dakota State Troopers.  The speed limit is 80mph along the Interstate, and although we weren’t traveling at that speed, apparently others felt the need to push that limit.

Dodging the Roadkill: The Sturgis Chronicles – Part 5

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – It had been a long hot day for us when we landed in Rapid City. Black Hills Harley Davidson was an absolute CIRCUS!  It was the first indication of the crowds that were to dominate the week at the rally.

I had become separated from my guys somewhere at the dealership and they were wanting to spend more time there than me, so I got back on my bike and punched up the address for the Iron Horse Inn.

I arrived at about 2:30 and even though the reservations weren’t in my name, I had proof of my payment so they allowed me to check in.

Dodging the Roadkill: The Sturgis Chronicles – Part 4

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – We pulled out of Wall, South Dakota, having fed our bellies and paid a visit to the Harley Shop, getting ever closer to our destination of Sturgis, and the 79th edition of the annual rally.

I was still trying to comprehend all that I had seen since I crossed the border into this wide open expanse known as the Dakotas.  Navigating the Badlands, then passing through this historic tourist attraction was causing me to process all that I would write about, hoping I could bring the experience to words.

My crew was equally as anxious about reaching our destination, so it was back onto I-90 to compete with the other bikers who refused to do the 80mph speed limit.
