Torrance, CA to Grand Junction, CO

2010 was the 70th Annual Black Hills Rally & Races in Sturgis, S.D. The last time I went was in 2006 and I swore I would never return due to the amount of people that were now attending. If they all came on motorcycles instead of dragging them along on trailers it would not be so bad, but Sturgis just was not built for one million people. Since I got a new bike, and the price of gas went up, I figured it would cut down on the number of RV’s and trailers, so I gave it another shot. Tanya drove out from Indiana to meet me, and we did not get there until Thursday, so any crowds had thinned out significantly.

I did not take many photos the first couple of days as I needed to get some miles in so I could arrive in time to meet Tanya. This gallery consists of pictures taken in Las Vegas and Mesquite, NV as well as along I-70 in Utah. I spent my second evening in Grand Junction, CO.

I made it home

Nine days, 3,200 miles. Some very nasty weather, and some nice weather. Beautiful canyons, waterfalls, bluffs, skies and motorcycles. Can not forget the motorcycles. I for one am so very pleased with the performance of my 2010 Harley-Davidson Limited. That thing was built for the open road. The 900 lbs. of weight really helped in the wind, and the 103 cubic inch motor with the six speed just loved it when I put the cruise control on at 90. 3,000 RPM! So smooth.

My picture of the day for day 230, was taken today as soon as I pulled into the driveway. That is the total mileage for my trip to the 70th Annual Black Hills Rally and Races in Sturgis, SD.

The Black Hills Rally ends

I have been coming to Sturgis since 1986, and have attended numerous times. The last time I came was in 2006 and I told myself I would not return. Circumstances changed and I found myself meeting Tanya here. Every other time I arrived at the beginning of the rally. This year I came towards the end. Smart move. I met a lot of nice people on this journey, from Wes and Dave of F.I.W.S. to the Anderson’s of Wisconsin, who gave us the idea of staying an additional day.

My photo of the day for day 227 is of a couple we met in Spearfish, SD today. He was from IN and now lives about 30 miles from me. It is a small world. For those of you that I gave my card to that are here for the pics of the events, I am beginning my ride home tomorrow, and I will get them all up after I get home. Hope you had a safe ride home.
