Dodging the Roadkill: Rocky Mountain High – The Ride Home

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I spent three days in Ouray, Colorado with my friends, Kim and Craig.  Their hospitality was amazing!  Their home is beautiful, and with mountains at the front door, and mountains from the back deck, I couldn’t have been more blessed and fortunate.

We spent the days riding the mountains, visiting Silverton and Durango Colorado and all points in between.  My only regret from my time in Ouray, is that i didn’t get out to visit any of the locals, or take a walk downtown.  I also didn’t visit one of their famous “hot springs.”

As I said before, this part of the country gives you MANY reasons to come back again, and again.

Dodging the Roadkill: Rocky Mountain High – Part 3

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – When I agreed to go to Sturgis, that was all there was to it.  I would spend the week at the Rally and come home.

Somewhere along the way, this adventure expanded into a full blown travel itinerary that included stops in Colorado Springs, and Ouray, Colorado.

A couple of years ago, I met an Army veteran and his wife, Craig and Kim Kotzen. 

Craig and I met through a mutual friend, and our love for motorcycles developed into a great friendship.  We’ve traveled several times to the Smoky Mountains where we’ve gotten to know each other better.

Dodging the Roadkill: Rocky Mountain High – Part 1

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I pulled out of the Iron Horse Inn at 5:30 on Friday morning.  I had already apologized to my neighbors the night before about firing up “black beauty” that early the next morning.  It was a cool, crisp morning and there was a “calm” in the air as I pulled out, on my way to Colorado Springs, Colorado.

It was there that I would rendezvous with friends I had met through this blog.  After spending a couple of days there, I would then head over to Ouray, Colorado, where I would stay with friends for a couple of days.

Make no mistake about it, I LOVE COLORADO!

Dodging the Roadkill: The Sturgis Chronicles – Part 7

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – As soon as I started meeting other bikers in Sturgis, who came from all over the country, I quickly learned that everybody comes to this rally for different reasons. 

Some came to be with friends that they only saw this time of the year.  Others came in groups to have a good time, see all the performers and just let their hair down.

I met many couples who were making their way to the West Coast, where ultimately they were going to ride the Pacific Coast Highway in California.

Me?  I came to ride and ride we did.

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.
