People ask, why do I do it? Well, I like the rush! I tell them, there’s something about not having any doors or windows surrounding me, that I like and half the thrill comes from the freedom to ride. If you don’t own a bike you wouldn’t understand.
From the time I put my helmet on and rev up my bike, I know I’m ready to hit the road again. I pack up my bag and tie it to my saddle-bags. I try not to over-pack, since my bike is naturally heavy, I wouldn’t want to add on more weight than needed. Yeah, you can’t go wrong with a Harley Davidson, I’ve had my 2008 Road King Classic, for quite awhile now and I’ve put some miles on it too but my bike treats me damn good.
Now, that I think of it, the first road trip I ever took on it, was from Seattle Washington to Sturgis. Yeah, if your any kind of bike owner and you like to party, you have to go Sturgis. I remember the day I left, It was noon and cold as hell, leaving Seattle, it started to really pour down but I was on a mission and no type of weather was going to ruin it.
Ten days of the best damn, Motorcycle Rally in the whole U.S and I didn’t plan on missing it. I was a couple hundred miles out of Washington and it felt amazing. I know people say to take a break every now and then but the only breaks I took, was to gas up, get a beer, some food and I was back at it again.
I rode my Harley non-stop, all the way to Great Falls, Montana. I stopped at a store to get some food and my eyes were getting pretty heavy on me, so I knew it was time to pack in. I found a small RV park and I pitched a tent for a night. The next day I drove another eight hours straight till I got to Sturgis.
Man, I was so excited to be there not to mention hot women everywhere dancing and the beer there I swear, tasted better than anywhere else. But the show line up was what made everything even more worth it.
I stayed for three days straight and I seen some of my favorite bands play: Foghat, Alice Cooper, Kiss, Kid Rock Theory of a Deadman and ZZ Top and not only that but bike the contests were crazy and fun, the bonfires and god forbid again, I can’t forget the women there, but all in all it was a good time. And women love bikers! So, I suggest get a bike and take an adventure but if you do get a bike you better make time to travel to Sturgis you will have the time of your life if you do!
