Road Trippin' to Sturgis - 2015

August 30, 2015

Many thoughts were running through my mind this year in anticipation of our road trip to the 75th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Part of me was excited as usual, to hit the road again with our Sturgis crew, but another part of me was somewhat apprehensive due to all the hype and anticipated crowds, with it being the 75th anniversary. This would likely mean longer lines at the fuel stops, lots of newbies crashing, burning, and doing stupid things, and bikes overheating while trying to make it through all the traffic in and around Sturgis. As departure day approached, and I started packing the bike, any last bit of apprehension vanished and was replaced by excitement.

Sturgis 2015 - Stripe's Trip

August 29, 2015

My ride to the 75th Annual Black Hills Rally began with a short run on Friday, July 31, to rural Wathena, Kansas, spending the first night at the home of Editor Mike’s mom. The hospitality was much appreciated. On Saturday morning, we rode into town for a rendezvous with a group of friends to begin the first day’s trek to Ogalallah, Nebraska.

Sturgis 2015 - Racing

August 29, 2015

Motorcycle racing has been at the heart of the Sturgis Rally since its origin. The man known as the father of the Black Hills Rally was Clarence “Pappy” Hoel who owned an Indian Motorcycle franchise in Sturgis and was one of the founders of the Jackpine Gypsies club in 1936. The Gypsies’ first event was known as the Black Hills Classic, a single motorcycle race with nine racers and a few spectators. From that modest beginning, attendance at the rally experienced remarkable growth.

9th Annual Larry “Mad Dog” Rogers Memorial Ride - Birmingham, Alabama

August 28, 2015

Nine years ago on August 10, 2006, Larry “Mad Dog” Rogers lost his battle with cancer, and the rest of us lost one of the sweetest men you’d have ever wanted to meet. It was a very sad time at Rider’s Harley-Davidson where “Dog” was the parts manager for 16 years. Everyone loved him. He made all of his customers feel like he was there just for them, and that what they wanted or needed was important to him.

A Biker’s Heart

August 28, 2015

A woman in a Facebook group I belong to shared this story with us, and with her permission, I am sharing it here.

“A few weeks ago my old man, his buddy and myself went for a ride. Because this is only my 2nd year riding my own I'm still counting miles, trying to break last yrs 5,000. The two guys are diehards that have been riding for their whole lives but they are good sports and they try not too laugh too loud when I do screw up on my bike. Unfortunately I'm having trouble with my hands going numb while riding so we end up stopping often. We spend a lot of time at various parks talking about where the next park is.
