Here’s a post from “Sturgis Chick“, a blog I’ve been following that I’d like share. Take a look if you have a moment. Maybe you’d like to follow her blog on WordPress. It may be especially interesting for those of you who have “Adventure Bikes” and are “Adventure Riders”. I’d like to be able to venture off of the paved roads, but my motorcycle just isn’t set up for that. Sure looks fun though.

Sturgis Buffalo Chip’s 2nd Annual Trike Owners United Ride (T.O.U.R.).
I plan on going to Sturgis again this year. This will be my 2nd time. Tent camping along the way, I plan on staying at Fort Tuthill campground in Flagstaff, AZ, Arches National Park in Utah, and Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. If I have time I’d also like to ride through Aspen, CO to take in the scenic views. Each time I take a trip I try to take routes I haven’t been on before (unless I feel it was so nice I’d like to see it again). I plan on going through Arches National Park which I rode through last year, simply because I enjoyed it so much. If you plan on camping in any of the national parks, be sure to make your reservations well in advance. They fill up quickly especially in the summer months.
My trip back to AZ will probably have to be along the Interstate Highways since it will be the quickest. I would prefer to take the back roads through the little towns, scenic views, more relaxing atmosphere, etc… But I could only get so much time off from work!
My last photo of the Yamaha Roadstar Midnight. I purchased it for my brother to use when he was able to come out to Arizona and go riding. After about a year and a half, with some reservations, I decided to let it go. It served its purpose quite well. With my brother at the helm, it was ridden in AZ, taken to Sturgis in SD, and made a trip up the Pacific Coast Hwy in CA. It was a 2005 and only had 18,000 miles on it. It was a nice ride.
