We shared the campsite at Custer for the three nights with loads of rabbits and Kim & Cathy from Texas, great to meet you guys!
A visit to 4 mile town was interesting, an old western town re created on the site of an old western town if that makes sense. Today a ride to Sturgis, 9 days camping in the heat was getting to me so we decided to stop in a hotel here for the night to cool down, glad that we did, this town is of course famous for the annual Sturgis event which attracts 1/2 Million motorcyclists from all over the world. The museum was interesting, loads of old Indians and then we stopped at Gypsie vintage cycle which is the same shop that the founder of Sturgis used to own, the current owner Coe Meyer now runs it as a shop selling restored classic bikes and is carrying on the tradition of being part of the Sturgis scene, we got invited through the back room for some unexpected hospitality, a few guys and neighbour Shelly arrived and we had a great afternoon! Thanks guys. Now we are heading for the Norton meeting at Buffalo which starts on Monday, so plenty motorcycle content ahead!
