Things I Learned at Too Broke For Sturgis

Our weekend at Too Broke For Sturgis was a total blast. We had a great time, and have some really great pictures, which I will put up later. Right now, I would like to share some things that I learned this weekend:
  1. When you buy a Mustang seat from Craigslist, make sure it fits the bike first. :(
  2. Badlander seats cause undue amounts of pain in the region below the waist.
  3. Not all pasties are created equal. :)
  4. Jose Cuervo Especial and Jack Daniels DO NOT mix.
  5. Tents are easier to put up if you read the directions first.
  6. Deep Woods Off will kill ants on the ground...and keep them away from your tent all weekend.
  7. Aspirin is necessary when camping.
  8. Watching a motorcycle accident happen right in front of your eyes makes for a very nervous passenger.
  9. Porta-pottys are NASTY.
  10. A cold shower after a long day of riding really is priceless.
  11. Pinstriping can really change the look of your bike. :)

Porta potty's suck, and accidents are even worse

Diane said...

Glad you had fun!

Andrea said...

Great things to know. I'll definitely take the Deep Woods Off to my next camping trip....anything that helps get rid of the bugs is good for me.

And it is amazing what a cold shower will do for you!!
