sturgis or bust...

with the trip to sturgis less than a month away, it's BUST!!!

unfortunately a few unexpected, and some expected, expenses have hit. all around the same time... which puts this trip off for this year. i'm pretty bummed about the whole thing - but there's not much i can do about it.

when i first committed to the trip, i was fairly confident i'd be able to make it. and i put off the myrtle beach trip to have time for sturgis. earlier this year, we had to spend some money unexpectedly... and now, we just seem to be hit with a lot of money going out and not a lot coming in. makes it very hard to justify a trip to sturgis for two weeks...

there are two primary reasons i'm bummed about not making this trip. the first is missing the chance to ride with my brother on a trip like this - i was really looking forward to it. we've been on other rides and spent a week at myrtle last year. but this trip was going to be different - traveling for two weeks across our country. and that's the other reason i'm bummed. i wasn't so much in this trip for sturgis as much as i was for the riding to and from sturgis. two weeks riding across the states - that's what i was looking forward to.

well, maybe one day in the future i will be able to make a trip like this. and maybe my brother will be able to ride with me. and maybe missing this now will make me appreciate that trip even more...

until then, enjoy whatever ride you're on...
