  2. 2. Choppers made famous by OCC , and Trikes. The important thing is that they gather for any fun timeto enjoy other bikes and also share the friendship of the biking globe.The u. S. Choppers reality television show in 2002 showcased Paul Sr and also Paul Jr in the OCCShop (orange County Chopper the big apple ) customizing bikes, a business that began in the late1990s being an extension of john Sr.s metal business. In late 90s he actually started Orange Countyteeth. The companys first cycle , "True Blue", was debuted at the late 90s Daytona Biketoberfest.Our first trip to Sturgis was back 2003. My husband and the friend drove an RV and trailered thebikes. Me personally and our friends wife flew directly into Denver rented a pretty blue convertible andalso fashioned ourselves Thelma and Louise. The plan was to drive through areas of Wyoming intothe african american Hills to our fast City destination Katmandu Campground. My study done andmapquest printed I had calculated 6 hours from denver. What I didn’t take into account was that viawinding Black hill roads your time is significantly , much slower. Since that wasn’t poor enough myfriend milliseconds Drama Queen kept reminding me we had been in a National forest doing about30mph through twists and also turns , up and down blackhills in the middle of the night along with twosingle motorbike gang members in front of our vehicle which at any change could slow our rentedconvertible down , attack, rob and also rape us. Following about 45 moments of this, my mind startedplaying games and I became genuinely concerned. Your woman reminded me to not slow down foranything and I vowed id run them more than if any suspicious arose. Some bikers look scary , theyare able to also be dangerous, that knows.We made it to the campground in one piece and without event but a bit shaken. After this harrowingexperience all I want can be a glass of wine. The next thing my partner and i find is my better half hasshaved his / her head completely bald and is now showing off two earrings. Perhaps I should havestayed home.I got used to that real quick , not planning to spend my holiday ticked off , plus its not like thisindividual could have grown that overnight anyways.From then on Im glad to be able to report everything proceeded to go pretty smooth.What could be better than using your Harley toanyone of our amazing andbeautiful National Parks ?Black HillsCusters National Parkvia tiny needles HwyMount RushmoreDevils TowerBad LandsYellowstone National playgroundretiring in Costa Rica
