Well I did it, I went to sturgis for the first time. It was everything I expected and more. There were people from all walks of life, young and old. It was quite the experience to ride through the Black Hills, walk through downtown, and meet people who live and breathe motorcycles.
I made the trip because I was invited to put one of my helmets in the Motorcycles As Art show curated by Michael Lichter. Lichter has been shooting photos for Easyriders Magazine for longer than I've been alive. It was an honor to be involved in the Old Iron Young Blood Show. All participants were under 35 years of age and from all over the world.
I hope that one day I can go back to Sturgis, but when I do I'd like to ride my bike there. Until then, I'll just show you some photos of this year's trip.
