Day 5, More Riding and Racing...

Saturday, 9-8-18. John and I started the day with another ride down Spearfish Canyon, then a loop around Lead, Central City, and Deadwood.

We rode down 385, over to Nemo road, then a spirited ride up Vanocker Canyon which took us to Sturgis.

We were too early to watch the races, so we went north of town to check out the new Full Throttle Saloon. The place is huge! Inside the main bar building there are several huge industrial machines... old milling and boring machines, a large hole punch... Big stuff! There are cars and motorcycles on the walls, a collection of welding helmets... The bar top is made of old sprockets, gears, chain, bearings, and sockets... all welded together. The bar stool bass are iron pipe with gears welded to them...

We watched the races from several locations around the track. Another perfect day for racing.

After the races we went back to camp and parked the bikes, as it looked like it might rain. The four of us rode to Spearfish in Kathy's car. We had a great dinner at the Guadalajara restaurant then went back for another night around the camp fire.
