Street Rod 750 Portland Harley Davidson
August has had no shortage of stuff to do either. I had another Super Hooligan round in Sturgis, South Dakota to attend. I left my house on a Monday morning, and drove 900 miles to Billings, Montana. The next day I had 300 more miles before making to Sturgis. I made it to the legendary Buffalo Chip in time to catch a Harley stunt show, and then head to Rapid City to watch an American Flat Track race.
On Wednesday, I did the Super Hooligan race (finished 4th), then left the Buffalo Chip around 8:30pm and headed west to Billings Montana again, where I could a plane Thursday afternoon to Oakland, California.
A lot happening here already, huh? Well it goes on.
Once I landed, I drove to Sonoma Raceway for a MotoAmerica race! I was there Thursday through Sunday. I qualified 9th, and got two 9th place finishes in Superstock 600! I rode great both races, especially on Sunday. For half the race, it was me and 9 other riders in a 10 rider freight-train battling. It was the best race of the year! After that, I drove back to Oregon 650 miles with my dad in the motorhome.
Tuesday morning, I caught a flight back to Billings, Montana to pick up my van and drive it home. I drove 900 miles straight back home and got in Wednesday at 1:30 a.m. It was a 21 hour travel day! That was a brutal stretch of traveling.
Since then, I got to do a Harley-Davidson photo shoot on their new Street-Rod 750. It has been a lot of fun riding for manufacturers! Getting paid to ride with no pressure or racing on the line is about as fun as it gets, because it's just about enjoying yourself and the ride. In the last 2 ½ months, I've done video and photo shoots for Indian, Alta, and Harley. Three American manufacturers! I am proud.
