August 13, 2015I got home from Sturgis last night at 7 pm. had some bad luck while I was there, my Sater went out when I was coming out of the badlands. Bike died ,cululd not roll it and start it, somebody jumped me off and I managed to get about a mile and a half out of the badlands park back toward I-90 and it quit running again. Sater was burned up ,did not know it at the time. Had a friend in Rapid come pick my bike up on his trailer and he hauled it to his house and I got the parts and fixed it in his shed. The Sater ,the voltage regulator and the gasket cost me $460 with tax, glad I could fix it myself and saved labor, if they would have ever gotten around to fixing it for me they were so busy. Then on the way home I had to put on a new rear tire on I-35 ,saw fabric showing on the tire and had been running 80 to 90 mph, on the way home. The tire,mounting and tax, cost me $429. Sturgis was way too crowded, the buffalo chip was also way too crowded and you had to wait in long lines to get out. I dd enjoy the bands and some of the riding I got to do, and the wather was good and hot, never really got wet other than running into couple of light showers.
Dave , I was at Rapid City Harley at 1 pm. Tuesday, stayed there a couple of hours, did not get a call from you and did not have your number. If I saw you I would not have recognized you, have only seen your pic on here once I think. I do not know if you wrote my phone number down or put it in your phone, but I put it on here more than once , I tried!!!!!
