Post Maxi scootin to Sturgis
I know how you guys love following my yearly idiotic bike trips. Las Vegas, the Rally in the Gorge... etc. This year is going to be a 2500 mile round trip from Port Angeles Washington to Sturgis South Dakota for the bike rally this August. Taking the trusty Majesty 400 with the wife, 2 up. Belt and rollers are new with less than 1000 miles on them. Need to do the front speed sensor as a preventative maintenance item. I hear they like to go out at about 10K miles.

Well be staying in hotels there and back, taking 2-3 days to get there and 2-3 days back. Camping at the Buffalo chip for the live bands. Motley Crue, Alice Cooper, Zac Brown band, Cheap Trick, Florida Georgia Line, a few others. Should be epic. :D

Not afraid of the Harley dudes beating you up? :zuma:

Seriously have fun and ride safe.

Since I got my Burgman I am having a blast. Not ready to venture out on the open road yet but I hope to get there. Although I doubt I would do a trip that far.

My wife's cool. I keep telling her I'm going to get her painted up. I keep getting.... ummm no. We'll see what happens once the alcohol starts flowing. :cheers:

SSsshh ... SSsshh ... I didn't think that we wanted to discuss that HERE.

Every female out there at Sturgis has to be someone's girl friend or wife.

And

Don't go posting pictures of the wife (with body paint) ... that would be WRONG

Epic trip starts in 2 weeks! Thinking of coming home the long way through Salt Lake City to avoid having to do the whole trip in reverse when we go home. Be nice to see some different scenery on the return trip.

Scooter performed flawlessly for 1280 miles over 3 days. Got some good remarks from a bunch of Harley's I was riding With at 80mph. Got to the gas station with them and they were like wow.. That thing really scoots.

Post Re: Maxi scootin to Sturgis
1800+ miles into it now, stopping for a real bed and a real shower in Rawlin Wyoming. Have 290 miles to get to Salt Lake City Utah for tomorrow nights stop, then up into twin falls Idaho then back home. I'll have to do 2 450 mile days Sunday and Monday to be at work on Tuesday. Expecting about a 3000 mile trip by the time I get home.

Pics and a real ride report will come when I get home and can compile things nicely. Still have the Olympus pics and some go pro stuff to play with when I get home.

Just for the record, at a Harley biker rally, not 1 person made fun of the scoot, and when they learned I had rode it all that way, people were genuinely impressed. Actually, I have never met a nicer crowd than at Sturgis.

harley riders out on the road are much more friendly than the posers that never leave the city limits

Post Re: Maxi scootin to Sturgis
You're from WA, we both know it takes the same amount of time to just drive around lol. I thought about it, but didn't want to have to scoot out of downtown Seattle.

Pulling into Salt Lake City today, it was the first big city I've seen in like a thousand miles. We stretched the Wyoming leg to about 700 miles of small town driving and sight seeing.

Pics and all that good stuff will follow when I get home, but here's something to hold you guys over
