Sturgis, population 6,900 in normal times.
I didn't realise Sturgis was that small. Makes Banbury look like a megaopolis.

There is an old Yorkshire saying that Melanie uses from time to time, "you can't educate pork". Which seems fitting in this instance.

Well it's just as well HD have been pivoting to the younger audience then, their old core will be getting even fewer in number.

Yup. Morons convention.

Never had the urge to go to one of these.

Mind you the you the young ladies are very nice. Some good videos on youtube.

So they say. :-[

Drove through there from Deadwood a few weeks after the rally. Good place for old bike parts being sold off stalls in little markets spaces. Nice place.
Its not always the destination that counts its the ride, having a destination just stops you going round in circles.
