We rented a house waaaay back in September after the issues we had back in 2013 getting a place to stay. So 8 of us are heading up. 4 from Abilene on Saturday morning and the others from Emporia, KS. We have the entire week so we are stoked.
I'm not really interested in the downtown Sturgis thing but rather the rides I missed out on last time I was up.
Bike is finally ready for the 980 mile trip up. Seats, backrest, trunk, fairing with 600 watt audio, Hybrid V&H/HD exhaust, and hopefully by Friday my K&N filter.
Just painted the trunk and fairing a couple of weeks ago and word to the wise...if you plan on doing your own work (which isn't as hard as you think), go purchase a quality Graco-Sharpe 3000 HVLP sprayer before you start. It will save you a lot of elbow grease with wet sanding the clear to get rid of orange peel from splatter. the cheap sprayers don't lay down the paint as well as the Graco.
