Who's going? Who was at the 95th? I've never been to a bike event and I am thinking of trying to make the HD celebration since it is close to Chicago. If you have attended the 95th and have been to Sturgis how do they compare?

Here is a link some photo's I found of the 95th anniversary. Looks pretty cool. 95th Anniversary Photos

A general consensus is Sturgis happens all the time the 100th party is a one time deal, In doubt the HD party will effect Sturgis, I can't find a room anywhere "near" Sturgis, They arn't even at the same time. You can read alot more at www.sturgisrallynews.com

Milwaukee vs Sturgis is 2 different animals. Milwaukee has hosted a party for the last couple of years. It is like attending World Series game there is lots to do, some neat entertainment and the main game itself HD in all it's corporate glory.

Sturgis is not the same, while it is really tame compared to the past , it too is mainly large sums of people riding the area which is beautifal and it all caters to the riding crowd period.

Can't really compare the two, but since you ARE in Chicago and it is the 100th you need to go. You will enjoy it.

As for rooms in Sturgis; there are still rooms available, just get a list off the internet and start calling, I found lots of vacancies in Rapid City

What exactly is there to do? Is it just food and bands? I guess you can't drink alcohol if you plan on riding your bike so it takes a lot to entertain me.

That's a possibility. So far I haven't heard any reason to go. Looking at Harley's get's boring real quick. I asked a legitimate question and you respond with a smart ass remark. Bravo!
