Dodging the Roadkill: The Sturgis Chronicles – Part 3

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – It was Monday and we started towards Sturgis, where we would check into the Iron Horse Inn later that afternoon.  After our ride through the Badlands, our next stop would be Wall, South Dakota.  The home to the famous Wall Drug Store.

Leading up to my trip, all I heard from other bikers was, “you gotta go see Wall Drug.”  “Be sure to visit Wall Drug” I was told.  So, that’s what was next on our schedule.  After all, we had seen signs to the place for the last 400 miles or so.

“Free ice water” and “5 cent coffee” is what brought me in.

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – As the weekend came to a close, it was bright and early on Monday morning.  Today was the day we would arrive at the 79th Annual Sturgis Rally.  The last couple of days had been uncharted territory for me, and arriving at THE largest motorcycle rally in the world would be another first.

We continued along I-90, a stretch of highway we had become all too familiar with, and our first stop would be the Badlands National Park.

The Badlands gets it’s name honestly.

Dodging the Roadkill: The Sturgis Chronicles – Part 1

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Since I began this journey, I’ve been committed to traveling as far and wide as I could possibly afford.  We all have a bucket list, and if a visit to Sturgis South Dakota isn’t on it, then you might want to re-examine your list.

I was invited to join three other brothers to this year’s 79th edition of the Sturgis Rally.  Last year when I was asked,  I thought to myself that I had at least a year to REALLY decide if I wanted to go.

Then I paid my hotel fees (which had to be paid in advance) and I realized that I HAD to go now and there was no looking back.  I’m grateful that I didn’t change my mind, and I’m blessed by the people I went with and the sites I saw.
