Sharing Sturgis

Last May, I came through South Dakota and Sturgis with Tanya, and all I could do was talk about how much more fun it would be if we were on a bike, riding down these open roads. Today, we lived the experience. She drove from IN to meet me, and today we went into Sturgis and cruised Main Street. We then rode to Rapid City to hit the Harley dealer as I had gotten a short that caused my tail light to not come on. I suspect it was from this huge bump I hit somewhere in CO. It was so severe, I was sure something broke. Guess I was right.

My photo of the day for day 225 is of Tanya and I in Rapid City with a rainbow in the background. It looks like she is having fun.

Long day yesterday, which is why this post is a day late. I started the day off at the Cheyenne Regional Medical Center for a saline drip. Apparently, I am not as young as I used to be and with the extreme heat I had been dealing with I got severely dehydrated. I thought I had been drinking enough water along the way, but I guess not.

My picture of the day for day 224 is of two gentlemen I met at Mule Creek Junction, WY. They were with a group called Free Ice Water Services and they were providing free ice water to travelers passing through. As I will never pass on free water again, I took them up on their offer. Thanks, guys.

Grand Junction

Last night I rode to Mesquite, NV. I stopped in Henderson and met a friend for dinner. He then joined me for about 30 miles. It was the slowest I have ridden this entire trip (but worth it). I started the day off by riding through the Virgin River Gorge on I-15. That place is amazing. I used my helmet cam, so videos will be up after I get home. I happened to have a bug hit my lens with messed up 10 of my 30 videos.

My day 222 picture of the day is what a guy looks like after 425 miles of riding through NV, AZ, UT and CO in the summer. Good thing the sun was at my back.
