Spring is in full effect and the Laughlin River Run is behind us! The weather will continue to warm and defrost in some parts of the country allowing for more rides and runs. There is always something different in the air when a bike rally is near. It is a feeling that is hard to explain unless you have experienced it first hand. The gas stations are full at every stop with bikers of all kinds. The roads have more Bikers in packs and for the most part everybody gets along knowing that you’re all of the same mind and journey. Of course there is always a lot of fun at these runs and a lot of cool bikes to see but for me it’s all about the ride. Being on the road with my brothers doing what we truly love.
One thing I’ve learned on this trip is that on these longer runs, choose who you go with wisely. It can make or break a trip you planned for months. I unfortunately chose someone I didn’t know very well and it ended up becoming a nightmare. Go with close buddy’s or just ride two-up with your girl and have fun together. There’s always another run to go to and next year for these bigger ones I think I’ll just stick to taking my girl! Another life lesson learned but as all Bikers do we move on and continue to push forward turning that throttle and keeping the rubber on the road.
