Finally had a few minute's to post here, haven't had but one day off since I got back from Sturgis. I wasn't home one day and my hay guy cut and had to go get a couple loads for the winter. Then it was non stop mowing some really wet grass, the rain has been good here though for the hay this year, last year there was none. As for Sturgis, I took a little detour and ran up to WI and met up there with my Sis and spent the night at her cabin property. The next day we had a short ride of 600 miles to Mitchell and did the short leg the next morning. We were about 10 miles East of Rapid City and I looked down and my shifter linkage was laying on top of my boot. Got off the next exit and coasted to a stop and saw that the little ball on the front of the shifter rod had worn out, so I got some electrical tape out and taped it together and we rode to Rapid to the dealer. I have never been in that place, it was huge and full of people. I made my way through the Hamster maze trying to get to the parts and some guy directed me to go park out in the dirt field and walk and I thought there had to be a shorter route. So I pulled around the back where the service was, about 40 bikes in lline and I told the guy my bike is under warranty but......can I please park here and run in and get what I need and fix it myself and he was thrilled to death that I wasn't wanting service. So we parked the bikes, got the part, it was off and on in 10 minutes and we were out of there. The crowd was really down this year, I think mostly due to the economy and the Anniversary in Milwaukee that's coming up. I think this was the best weather ever that I can remember, no rain and about a cool 80 during the day with zero humidity. We actually got in town a day earlier than we had planned when I found out that John McCain was going to be at the Buffalo Chip on the same day as Kellie Pickler and Kid Rock. We got there early and stood in line and were front row and I can't remember the last time I was so excited about seeing someone. There was nothing more fulfilling than seeing thousands of bikers cheering and reving their bikes for Senator McCain. I got some really good picture's, got a really good laugh from both Cindy and John and when they saw my T-shirt and that made my day. He will be in the St. Louis area and the tickets are free on August 31st, just go to and click on his events and you can get your tickets there.There should be some picture's posted on my pics page. I also went back to working a real job which I haven't done in so many years and I have no idea how I'm going to be able to keep up with everything, but I'll work it out. I went in to get oil for my bike when I got home back from sturgis and they asked me when I would come to work for them and I jokingly  said Tuesday and pretty much was hired on the spot, I started on Tuesday in the service dept of one of the local HD shops. So that's why it has taken me so long to post here, haven't had time trying take care of the critter's, karate and then going to work for 10 hours a day, there isn't much time for anything. But so far I'm liking it and nothing more I would like to do is be around horse's or bike's when it comes to work. Have a great weekend, CG
