This trip found me riding solo while 2 friends trailed up three bikes.
I met a lot of cool people on the road, and saw an unreal amount of cool scenery. I really want to go back. The parks and scenery were amazing.
I only spent 2 days at Sturgis proper. I’ve seen drunk people before, I get it. I was there to ride, and ride I did.
There were two notable experiences. The first was riding into Wyoming to camp solo at Big Horn national park. I’d had enough of crowds and just needed some me time.
The second was going to see the buffalo. I ended up in the middle of a herd of them. I was kind of expecting them to be off in the distance. Nothing bad happened, but it was a little intense as I waited for them to pass so I could start the bike back up and not risk spooking one into me.
