“Lena, Lena, did you get a picture of that?” Ole yelled at me as we were flying down the Interstate. “Ole, just why would I want a picture of THAT?” as I slapped him on the back of his bald head for the umpteenth time that day!!
What had gotten Ole so excited was just another “pervert” – a female (I won’t call her a lady) on the back of a bike totally nude from the waste up – her “purchased” boobs bobbling in the wind. Yes, they did flap a bit as the silicone had sagged just a tish, and the hard discs were beating her chest cavity as they flew by us at faster than the 75 mph that we were riding. Obviously, her significant other was okay with the whole thing – to each his own I guess.
Boy – I tell you – you see just a bit of everything here during the bike rally. There’s a group of Christian bikers that are very apparent in the downtown area – one that drags a large cross up and down the street and hands out literature to anyone that will accept it – to the chicken man and his wife that parade up and down the main street wearing nothing but a jock strap for him and tassels and a g-string for her, with him flashing a rubber chicken out in front of them – what the significance of the rubber chicken is I haven’t a clue.
Nudity is against the law on the streets of Sturgis, but body paint is considered clothing – so of course there are females who would never think of doing something like this at home that are painted anywhere from their entire fronts to just their nipples. Wonder what the Judge had on his mind when he passed THAT law!! Yes, this is a strange place.
Don’t get me wrong – yes there are perverts here, but the majority of the folks who come here come just to ride the beautiful hills and take in the sights. Downtown Sturgis just happens to be a side light where the “strange” people go to exhibit their wares – and the normal folks go to do their shopping and to gawk at all the strange people. Average Joe Blow and his wife/girlfriend would never consider doing anything but walking up and down the street and doing their shopping.
Yesterday was spent with Ole’s Cousin Joe and his wife, just catching up on old times, doing a bit of riding and enjoying each other’s company. Ole and Cousin Joe spent a lot of time together as young kids growing up out on the farm. So there was a lot of conversation about old times, reliving stories, etc. Fun time. But of course, fun times always have to come to an end and this one did all too early in the evening.
Lovely Daughter and Lars arrived last night about 6:30 or so, so there was lots of catching up to do even though it had only been less than a week since we’d seen each other and we talk on the phone at least once a day. Lars has never been to this part of the world before and was totally blown away with its beauty. He tells me that he’ll be here next year on his own bike enjoying everything.
