Day 5 Just couldn't get enough of Sturgis!!

So we are riding on down the road back toward Sturgis and Dan didn't seem like he was going to exit and go into town...I was like...where are you going? He was like...where should I go? I was like...turn into Sturgis!!! :)~ So he did. Not sure if you can tell or not but I love being in Sturgis. I love the electricity of all the people and bikes. The sounds of the loud pipes gives me chill bumps. I was on motorcycle overload each day that we hung out there. It's like Disneyland for me!!! I love it!!

We are walking down the road and I spot this guy and think to know...I sure haven't taken many pictures of guys on this trip. I decide to snap a pix of him. Thanks Mr. Biker!! :)~

We head back down to Main Street and end up meeting this totally awesome couple from Nebraska. They are not bikers but curious folks who have always wondered what Sturgis was all about. Dan and I are headed to the Oasis to cool down and have some beverages and the couple from Nebraska follow us in and join us at our table. There is Karaoke going on and people are singing a wide range of tunes. As we are sitting at our table laughing and watching everything that was going on around us who should walk in but Willie Nelson. We are all like...Willie...over here. We need your picture. Willie comes over and we all get our pictures taken with him.

Willie gets called up on stage to sing a number and one of his adoring fans just can't help herself. She has to get on stage with Willie and show him her boobies.(Willie was actually a look a like that did a show somewhere in Sturgis I think)
When Willie came back to our table he said to us...That chick got up there with me and when I looked down and saw her tits I forgot the fucking words! LMAO!!! Too funny!

After hanging out at the Oasis for a hour or so we decided to head on over to the Broken Spoke to see what was going on there.

We listened to Jasmine Cain and the Band for a while and then decide to take a trip back down Main Street to the Loud American to listen to the Appetite for Deception Guns and Roses Tribute band. Let me tell you I felt like I was back in the day singing along to each and every Guns and Roses song. And the Axel Rose look a like did the Axel dance really well. :)

It was finally time to leave my Disneyland for the final time this year and head back to Rapid City to rest up before we left to head back to the real world of Johnston, IA.

It was also Dan's last opportunity to get that final boobie photo. LOL
We made our way back to the bike and headed back out on the road toward Rapid City. As we rode further away I got big tears in my eyes...I could feel them falling down my cheeks. I know there is always next year but it's hard to leave a place where you feel so at home. I love ya Sturgis, South Dakota!

B.B. said...

Dave & I are in for next year! It would really be amazing if we could all pull it off!
Thanks for sharing your Sturgis adventure! I loved every minute of it.

I'd love to do Sturgis next year with you guys. Sounds like a load of fun. It would probably create blogging stories for weeks afterwards and memories for a lifetime.

Dean "D-Day" said...

For a minute, I thought that was you in the boobies picture. (Same black shirt, black bandana with sunglasses on top of the head) Then I realized the pattern on the bandana didn't match. Too bad. I was just getting ready to compliment you on your pair. LOL!!

Mr. Motorcycle said...

I thought that was actually Willie at first. Even before I started reading I saw the picture and thought gee, that looks like Willie Nelson. Then you really had me fooled when I wtarted reading.

I would have forgottten the words tit, I mee too.

Mr. Motorcycle said...

Re: meeting In sturgis? Hmmm. Will have to see.

Ann said...

As soon as I get back to work I am starting a Sturgis fund! I want to go next year!

BTW...I thought something was 'off' about Willie...he looked awfully young! :)

I had tears in my eyes when I got to the end of your post! I think I probably would've had tears leaving Sturgis, too.

Great post!

Mimi said...

I may be in for next year too! I've never been and after reading your blogs I want to go more than ever! Thanks again for sharing your great time.

Great pictures. Makes me more determined than ever to be there next year. Like I said, it's a lock as long as I can get a wingman. I'm sure I'll be able to find someone.

Blogger Rally at Sturgis! Sounds awesome! I'm really glad you had a great time. I really appreciate you posting pics all along the way. I have two brothers that went and they teased me about all I'm missing. You'll just have to look forward to next year, but in the mean time, you have great memories and stories to keep you fueled until then. Thanks for taking us along!
