Haven't been to Sturgis since 94, always like to hear about it. Hope everyone had a good and safe time.

The numbers were down a bit it seemed to me. Not nearly as much traffic, even into Keystone or Deadwood mid day. Beautiful weather. They were predicting 102 degrees a couple days but it didn't get over mid-nineties. Cold at night so we slept well and got up early to ride before everything gets too busy. Iron mountain Road and Needles highway were definitely the high lites of our trip. Custer State Park was great too.

We had a great time. We stayed in Hot Springs...a little far south but had a beautiful ride early every morning through Wind Cave or Custer State Park. Lots of buffalo, antelope and deer. Lots of great riding!

Heard there was a shooting this year. Hadn't been one for something like 18 years.

Sounded like a member of the Iron Pigs club (allegedly members are mostly LEOs) and a member of the H@ll's Angels club got into a scrap and the Iron Pig guy ended up shooting the H@ll's Angel guy.

I believe there are articles on the web for anyone more interested.

Had a great time. Weather was hot in the day, cool at night.

Had a nice ride out on Sat. Aug. 2 (no rain) and also a rain free ride home Aug. 7. Crowds were down, we could travel freely just about any where we went. Beer was cold, babes where hot. My 18th year in Sturgis for the Rally.

    • ouch, I would think all would good now, but one never knows.  life is good today is all i know.
    • 33 pounds. nice looking unit but kinda heavy. nice price out there. 
    • Mostly commenting this "sold a bunch of talk, and you believe that talk and vote against your own interests" but I do love it when people assume I am somehow D or R because I make a comment against their beloved party.
       
    • Holiday Bowl isn't too shabby. I wonder if Tracy Claeys is nervous? Last time the gophers played a Mike Leach led team, it cost their coach his job 
    • I'm not in the market for a new auger since purchasing an Ion, but I see FF has a Redback electric auger in their ad. This auger looks similar to the Ion for significantly less money. Does anyone have experience with this auger? Just wanted to bring it up as a possible alternative to those who might be in the  market for an electric. As a side note, I am very happy with the Ion.
    • MLR, how heavy is your house?   After reading your experience I was getting worried. Earlier this summer I swapped out my handles with bolts and gave them a brief trial with my old cordless Dewalt. It was pretty much maxed out and likely not the ticket. Just purchased the Dewalt kit DCK283D2 that is 40% off at FF in hopes it might work. I figured the impact driver would work but didn't really want to be hammering on the gear set. Tried out the drill after work today on low speed and it raises my house easily. My house weighs approximately 3000#. No more hand cranking for me.   Wanted to get the Milwaukee Fuel but couldn't see spending $275 for one drill. This kit is $167 for drill and driver with 2 batteries and charger.
    • I was talking about the heat from the heat exchanger making the fan hot.  With the fan at the top it blows the hot air out the bottom of the heater to help heat the floor.  
    • This summer?   Seems like a long time.  Are you sure this guy knew what he was doing?     Freezing may or may not kill the parasite.     From CDC.  Freezing wild game meats, unlike freezing pork products, may not effectively kill all worms because some worm species that infect wild game animals are freeze-resistant.
