My husband and I have been attending the motorcycle rally in Sturgis, SD for many, many, many years (19 in a row for me, 26 in a row for my hubby!) In 2003, my husband's motorcycle broke down, and we were forced to relocate campsites..... back to Spearfish City Park, so we could be close to the mechanic who could fix the old shovelhead (which broke a valve spring, and ran on one cylinder for almost 200 miles). My biker friends will know how brutal this type of fix is!
Needless to say, our vacation budget went in the pooper, because it cost us nearly $2000 to fix the bike and get it running to be able to come home. We were forced to spend a lot of time at the campsite, because we couldn't afford to do anything else.
Turned out to be one of the best things that ever happened to us, because we met a group of people who would quickly become our Spearfish family. Fast forward to 15 years later, and we are again down in the Black Hills for the rally, and we were blessed to be included in our friend's wedding day! I was absolutely honored to be asked to take photos, and thanks to my friend Angel, I even had a professional camera to work with!
Here are a few of my favorite photos taken that day. Congratulations to Tom & Terry, and can't wait to see you next year! Love you!
