They are Sea to Summit dry bags, 20 liters I think. I still have more than a week of report to do. Uploading pics is going slow.

Some Beemers.









This kid had a lemonaide stand down the road.







The Coors guy.









Taking the GEM car to pick up Tatania.











I took a ride to destress. Probably made me worse than I was when I left.









I knew it was a big event. But I had no idea how far it reached out of the town limits of Sturgis itself.

Renegade Tshirts.



Thrift store next door that is set up as small booths during the Rally.



Gunners. They serve hard stuff and beer there.




Hot Leathers store with a tent in front.



The best bar in town.

Time to water the plants.









Pat making breakfast.









Pat is so excited to be cooking he was bouncing off the ceiling. And Meagan took the picture, my timing isn’t that good.








Getting ready for the group photoshot.



A GSA makes a nice stable place to tale a picture from.







I’d fit right in with these guys. Well, at least the fat white one.











Take the picture already.





It was hot outside. Going back to stock more beer I found we had a lizard problem in the cooler.





Gary working the crowd.





Shirts for little kids. I wish they had one in my size.





Even the Hells Angles stayed away from guy.

The drive in these guys make them good weight pullers. Pound for pound they will pull double what my Malamutes do.



One of the repeat employees from last year.





Coolest bike on Main Street.



Pat and I went to Gunners.







We went and walked around looking at stuff up Main Street. Knight Rider had some really cool stuff. My mother in law likes fluer-de-lis and I liked the color of gold in this. Some mixture of copper and gold.



It’s a small world. This guy had a shirt on from a local shop and knows one of the guys.














How would gator look on a 12GS?





Loud American at the other end of Main Street.






Then over to the Side Hack.











I snuck up on Bubba to get a pic while Pat was getting drinks.





Skunky beer. Way past the born on date.



And then I went back to the bar. It was a rough night.

A bison that a woman I met killed.

The previous night I pull out the camera to take a picture and dropped it on the curb. Luckily this fine lady gave me a new one.


Even several bikes all the way over at Rapid City.



Nice side car at Walgreens. I didn’t get a good pic as I was talking bikes with the owners walking in.



A lot of 18 wheelers hanging around Rapid City waiting for loads out.







I think this was at the HD shop outside Rapid.



I was setting the camera on the tank bag sometimes. Must have hit the wrong button.



The gas pumps in St. Louis have those stupid vapor recovery systems. You don’t know how lucky you are to fuel without them.



A local giving some route info if I take the long way home through North Dakota.




















Hills looking north past I-90







My dog Dakota will wake up in 2 seconds from a dead sleep in the truck if you say cow or she smells them. I guess she thinks they are big dogs.
