They fly Tony in every year. He is from Providence I think and is famous for his moves while directing traffic.

Great pics, once again.
Orchid, did you go to the wild part of town at night?
I have not been to Sturgis, would be fun.
I also want to do bike week in Daytona.

Post by: Orchid on August 17, 2014, 08:25:30 AM
Great pics, once again.

Thank you very much.
I have bought a new camera. It’s Nikon D5200.

Orchid, did you go to the wild part of town at night?
I have not been to Sturgis, would be fun.

I spent only three days in Sturgis. What I try to show in my pictures is just a tip of iceberg.
The latest I stayed in town and clubs was 10pm. I had to download pics and charge batteries for the next day.
Sturgis is a VERY SAFE PLACE.
Police works very well. I have never seen even one drunk person.
Bikers do not drink much. But they like to have fun.
But it is very expensive place. We paid $300 per night. It’s the cheapest price of hotel in Sturgis.
If you stay in Rapid City, it will be twice cheaper.
Camping is even cheaper. Most of people are camping there.

I also want to do bike week in Daytona.

Hmm.. I hear about Daytona the first time from you. Interesting…
I decided to bring my life to another level and buy a bike.
It will take some time. Probably, I will start next spring.
In two weeks my school will start, and I am going to be very busy again.

Sturgis is biggest bike event in the world, 400 to 800,000 bike attend.
Next biggest is Laconia in NH 300 to 400,000 bikes.
Then Daytona, 200,000 the only difference is Daytona is 95% harley event.
I have been to Laconia many years ago.
the largest on in this area is about 40,000 bikes.

Is it Harley?

Yes it is a Harley, 1992 Fatboy, soft tall.
Was completely re-done in 2001, is now a one of a kind.
Everything was painted, frame all, hand mixed 12 colours of red.
You would have to see, in order to see the detail in bike and paint.
The list of work done is extensive, along with many handmade custom parts.

I suggest you start on something a little smaller, for first bike. You will enjoy.
be totally comfortable, before moving up to bigger bikes

Yes, it's my worry. I am too relaxed in a car.
Another my worry is a skin care. I am afraid it will cost more that bike itself.

I am also interested in this topic. At the airport of Turkmenistan, in the 80s of the last century, I just love to ride a bike. We had a small Russian company, all employees Ashgabat Airport (translated as the city of love). In the spring we went on a ridge Copetdag. In the summer heat preferred night walks to the lake.  :)

Orchid, I'm sorry, just a supplement. I do not want to do a separate issue.
This is the modern bikers from Russia. "Night Wolves" with leader Alexander Zaldastanov, better known for its as surgeon.


Grand show "Stalingrad", which "Night Wolves" led by the Surgeon prepared for about a year.

Thanks, Annushka, for your input.
Very impressive video!!!
By the way, I have met some Russian people at Sturgis.
We had an interesting conversation and spent some time together.
I promised do not disclose any information. I cannot say more than that.
Sorry…
Surprisingly, it was difficult to speak Russian for me.
They were nice to me, and most of the time we spoke English.

Title: Re: Wildness…Craziness…Sturgis…
Post by: Orchid on August 19, 2014, 10:22:24 AM
This show was very exciting, but it was very difficult to take pictures.
Bikers were moving very fast.
Do not judge me strictly.
I did my best.

Impressive photos Orchid. Did you mention anything of the beauty of the Black Hills? It's been about 20 years since I've been there. It is truly a unique and wonderful place. It is no wonder why the various Indian nations fought each other for this "sacred holy ground."

Thank you, dear Maxx.
This thread is a big project. I am exhausted.
You always come in time to support me…
I decided to limit myself to 300 pictures.
I am a little more than half way done.
Of course, I took many pictures of nature.
South Dakota and Sturgis is truly a unique and wonderful place.
You are right.
My goal is to show beauty of nature and beauty of people.
Spirit of Sturgis is a spirit of America.
God Bless my new country, if people in it can afford such event like Sturgis.

Great Pic's I have seen these shows, and yes I can imagine hard to take photos of
moving bikes. I have heard many great places to ride around Sturgis.
Once you learn how to ride and have a little experience, you might want to book a trip to,
tail of the dragon:)
I enjoy your thread and I think most all appreciate the hard work it takes.
thank you

Orchid...

You have managed to capture the "outrageous", "free spirited" and "bonding"  camaraderie of a unique culture that I have only heard about...

Great work, great photos and thanks for your time spent on this project.

It's a very refreshing thread to follow.

Pay attention that one gentleman has only one leg.
Unfortunately I saw it often
Riding bike can be dangerous.

This couple is from Czech Republic.
But in the USA they have a cleaning company.
Very nice people!!! I am guessing that their business is very successful.
And of course.... a very beautiful Slavic woman.
