I have a whole new respect for Sturgis and Bike Rallies now. I'm sure that I cannot fully convey it with words, but essentially- I learned more about freedom, freedom of expression and acceptance than I ever thought possible. These people go to let loose, mingle with people of like-minds and celebrate a life style that I only now fully understand. Before, when I thought of bikers, I thought of gangs, rough and tumble guys, violence and leather. Now, I think of free spirits, artistic souls, open-minded-and yet-guarded citizens and of course...leather. Everyone should attend a rally at some point, and if you really want the full experience- work a job at the rally. You will have a new respect for your own job and how much easier it is!
Here are a few pictures of my Biker Adventure:
We had to ride a shuttle 29 miles to and from work everyday
=New respect for people who take public transportation.
That's time and dedication! Made me smile everyday!
Bikes, Bikes EVERYWHERE!
For my husband:
Lots of pretty co-workers!
Got to enjoy the Blackhills everyday....
These people got offered $250,000 for their tiny lot and shanty and they said no....That's dedication to Sturgis, right there!
I told you they were pretty:
We have the same eyes!:
An experience I can never, and will never, forget.
There were a few "tags" on the bus at the beginning, but by the end the ceiling was COVERED.
Oh and by the way, I randomly met Jerry Springer to top it all off.
This trip was just pure randomness, so I'm not surprised lol
