Saddle Up!

Well, I didn’t think it up.. As a matter of fact the fault all goes to this chap Mike Riester.  It was his idea after all..  Jump on our bikes and head 2700 kms to the far western edge of South Dakota to a small town called Sturgis.  Where, every year for the last 7 decades, thousands of crazed motorcycle maniacs descend on the small town for a week of mayhem and general debauchery.

“Hmm! sounds cool!” I thought, and so.. for better or worse, without regard for driving rain, blazing heat, choking traffic, punishing miles, or the very real threat of terminal butt-chafe,  I agreed..   Along with another chap named Lee, the die was cast, we were on the road.

After all, what could go wrong for three Canadian lads in the fiery belly of biker valhalla?

Well, that remains to be seen.   But for sure, it won’t be boring!   One week to go and the pieces are starting to come together.. tent, sleeping bag, toothbrush, undies, ear plugs, stove, provisions, passport, maps, first aid, rain gear, shirts, shorts, sandals, sneakers and of course.. a well preened and ready to ride motorcycle.

It promises to be a ride to remember.  I’ll do my best to keep you updated with roadside entries from my trusty BlackBerry!

So saddle up and check the posts page for daily updates!   Just keep your rubber side down and enjoy the ride!

    Lee, I think I heard you leave early this morning,5AM? I believe I kissed you and said have a good trip all while I was still sleeping. So I will say it again awake for all to read. I hope you guys have a amazing trip filled with great laughs.
