When I woke up the morning after the DicE / Church of Choppers / Kung Fu Tap and Taco party, this is what I saw when I emerged from my tent... a beautiful pair of knuckleheads:
Can of warm beer anyone?
A great pair of Sportsters and a cool van.
I've seen this pan before. If you look close in the first pic, there's some cash on the ground by the front tire. I wish I noticed it at the time and not days later when editing photos. Anyway, I'm not an expert in kickstarts but there seems to be something wrong with this bike's kicker.
Here's a better view of the camping situation. Check out the couple of dudes who slept outside in sleeping bags. We all basically camped in the parking lot and it was... uh... rustic (no outdoor facilities except the woods).
Before leaving Des Moines (it was my first time there), I decided to ride to the capital building and walk around and take some photos. The building caught my eye from the interstate.
Here's a view of downtown Des Moines from the capital building.
I managed to get a few shots of the Sporty right in front.
Next up are shots from the ride home...
