Fall Cheers From Throttle Travel
The landscapes are changing colors, leaves are falling, and temperatures are cooling. Instead of mowing grass we're collecting leaves, closing down pools, cleaning gutters and prepping garage/shed space for the winter season that will soon be upon us.
Samhain-End of Harvest Season Celebration
Did you know? Halloween started more than 2,000 years ago by the pre-Christian Celtic. It was a celebration of the end of the harvest season and also believe to be a time the spiritual world crossed over and communicated with the living. Read more here
Message from Throttle Travel
From Dawn Makowski, your travel advisor
Wow.....weeks ago I was working on travel plans and today working through refunds, changes in itineraries and wondering where we go from here. Hysteria and panic sets in, people hoarding toilet paper, hand sanitizer, cleaning supplies, dry and canned food products, it's crazy. Please remember to be kind to one another, help each other, check in on your neighbors, especially the elderly. Times like this define our character as humans.

REAL ID ACT
The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is one of the largest in the world...
This rally began in 1938 with about 200 visitors, to over 773,000 visitors in 2015 (75th Anniversary). The next “big” anniversary, 80th, is August 7-16th, 2020.
Back in August of 2015, a group of fellow riders and I headed out to Sturgis for the 75th celebrations. We choose to ride out the week before the actual rally due to traffic congestion and the amount of visitors that would soon flood this small town.
For most of us, this was our first time in Sturgis, first long distance ride and first time being out west. We chose to rent a house in Lead, South Dakota that was central to taking in plenty of adventurous miles with stunning destinations.
