drifters at sturgis
« on: August 10, 2013, 14:34:44 PM »

ok so near as I can tell there were a total of four drifters in the black hills this year.  mine and my father In-law (GWY-Chief) a blue 800 from ohio and the one that got away a 2001 1500 in oxblood and cream with a lady rider.  I tried to flag her down but she shot off without even noticing us but I did get to talk to the owner of the blue 800 and passed him one of the cards.

Ok, so there are two oxblood and creme 1500s...I was thinking I was all by myself! Having 4 in one place almost classifies as another Drift-In!

yes Sturgis was awesome got to see a lot of amazing sights and ride some beautiful roads.  would have had video of some of it but the handlebar mount for my camera caused a lot of shake and the video would just make you queasy.  once I get a chance to edit the photos I got of the blue 800 I will post them.  just amazing that I saw thousands of bikes and only 4 drifters.  the victories had a good showing though and of course to many HD's to count.

ok here we go.  the fist pic is me with the In-laws before we left.  the next three are of the blue 800 we found.  the hard trunk is off of some Japanese scooter which he then rigged with a spring hinge.  unfortunately he cant find any one to match his original paint so the color is off by a shade or two.

Almost looks like an old Goldwing trunk.  Great pics!

I think sometimes folks are just a little too hung up about oils & filters & coolant & specs & spark plugs & tires & torque & values & brakes & shift levers & seats & cleanliness & light bulbs & stuff. ;D
