Sturgis By The People: Sturgis Misc… Part 1

Photos: Robbie Vestring and RadFlagz

One of my favorite memories from Sturgis this year,” Robbi Vestring told us, “was running my Dyna down the Sturgis dragway and blasting down the mountain twisties with my dad. I took the picture of the Rooke sculpture because he was an inspiration to myself and my cousin at a young age and got us interested in building the style of bikes we wanted.”

We rode through some beautiful scenery in Utah, and once we landed in those Black Hills of South Dakota we rolled up our shirt sleeves for the VTV Harley-Davidson Performance Bike show and did some work at our RadFlagz booth. The people we ride with are family and it was a great Reunion!”

Thunder Press will be publishing stories and photos submitted by readers throughout the month of September to celebrate the 80th Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
