saturdays paper reported that they are estimating between 500k --600k

they think that it ranges around the year of 2000, but the traffic figures seem to be up more this year the last year

Well that's truly amazing, I got around SOOOOO much better than I did in 00 and 01 so I guess I was lucky.

The people of South Dakota deserve a round of applause for their excellant patient and hospitality show towards us.

Extra slice of raisin pie for em!!!

Thanks S.D.

FifthGear wants to know Dino or Syn?
I am wondering if it seemed less crowded because of the beautiful weather early on in the rally and there were more out riding the hills than previous rainy weather years? In any case the two times that I ventured into Sturgis the timing was right or something becuase I rode right in, found easy parking and didn't find it that crowded at all. I heard the day before my last trip there that traffic was stacked up to Deadwood though..hmmm.

Everything I have read says that attendance was same as last year.. 450,000 estimated, but that MANY people had left by Wed the 6th, so the crowds were more concentrated during Aug 2 to Aug 6 than last year, causing it to be more crowded on any given day between the 2nd and the 6th than it was last year. (Last year more people stayed for the final weekend or didn't show up until the final weekend.. this year the final weekend had attendances way down).
Taxes collected by the state, however, may top even 2000, which was the biggest rally to date.

Try this link for info on Sturgis attendance and other related stats:

http://www.Sturgis.com/2kstats.html

I either timed things exceptionally well this year or traffic flowed much smoother than years past. Hit Main street every day or night Sunday thru Thursday at various times and always found parking with no traffic hassles!! It was a great year, both traffic and weather wise, for me.
