  • Sturgis Motorcycle Rally

    Don't boo whoo me just yet. I know the title is a little off topic, but not really. Brian (25horseplay) will get a hoot out of this.

    The big debate every year is trailer or ride your bike to Sturgis. This guy figured it out. From Pa to Sturgis, South Dakota, no trailer, and no ride!!!

      What happens if there is a collision between a Festiva, a Harley, and a group of circus clowns wearing red suspenders?
      When I'm good I'm very, very good and when I'm bad I'm HORRID.

        Those front tires though!
        Driving for me is neither a right nor a privilege. Driving is my passion, as it was for the people who invented the automobile, the people who paved the first roads and the people who continue to improve the automobile. Please respect this passion.

          I would really like to see more of the front end, looks to be fender flairs, no bumper etc.

          Umm you better look more close at that bike, that's no Harley, more likely a Hondog.
          An idea can turn to dust or magic, depending on the talent that rubs against it.

              That is insane.

              Any difference that makes no difference is no difference.

                          So awesome.

                          I JUST walked in the door from spending a week out there. I went early to visit with some hard core full-time motorcycle drifters. We camped at Camp 5 (Black Hills National Forest) A record 1.1 million people estimated to attend this year. Costumed authorities were (and probably still are) handing out tickets like candy. I guess they figure tens of millions of dollars is passing through their town that you could almost fall asleep in the street any other time of year--and they want some of it damn it! We're talking J-walking tickets, not putting both feet down at a stop sign, 38 in a 35….oh and it's pay in cash on the spot or jail. Good thing we aren't a 3rd world country or anything.

                          I saw a port fella on a full dress nail a deer at 50 mph, putting him over the bars, then his bike slide on the hard cases for a 1000 feet. He was okay (road rash) but it sure was creepy to see

                          The bike rally is pretty cool (even for crowd-phobes like me) the black hills are a real gem of America.
