A 4,000 Mile Pilgrimage

This journey was certainly as much about the ride as the destination. Unlike many of the other big rallies this place was made to ride. Although I heard that numbers were down from previous years, the official stats put the number somewhere around 510,000 riders in attendance. This was up roughly 50,000 from last year. It's all a guesstimate anyway, and either way, it didn't really matter to me as I found traffic to be manageable due to the spread-out nature of the Rally. Above all I can now say that I have ridden to Sturgis and back.
I'd like to thank my riding partners from Hot Bike, Baggers, and Street Chopper as well as Renegade Wheels, Mr. Mister (SP?), Keyboard Transport, Performance Machine, and EZ Chock for a great experience.
