The friends house that we stay at every year has a city owned parking lot across the street. We can sit out front and watch them do exactly that -- pull up in Mini Vans all dressed and leathered just up to walk down town. They are easy to pick out of the crowd though, just like the trailered in bunch -- they may look the part but they just don't have the sun burnt raccoon face of someone who rode in.xxxflhrci said:I usually go in my Dodge Caravan. Stop at Stuckey's along the way and pick me up one of them "Ride to Live" generic Harley shirts that they keep next to the pecan logs. I just roll in to town, park around the corner, jump out with my new shirt, logger's, and chain-drive wallet and blend into the crowd looking like the rest. Nobody knows the difference. If anybody asks, I just tell 'em that I rode my Knuckle/Pan/Shovel/Evo/TC all the way from Bumfuk in the worst conditions possible because I'm hardcore.
depends on where you make your reservations really. most motels/hotels don't start taking app's until after the years rally, BUT, camp grounds are rarely full that you won't have a problem finding a spot to campDJW said:never been there, because gin keeps telling me she'll invite me "next year" but someday maybe..I'm guessing sturgis is like mcdonalds', don't care how you got but you can't just sit here and drink coffee all afternoon.
Seriously though, i have never been anywhere that anybody really gave a crap what bike i was on. sure there was always some good natured ribbing, but fights? come'on who the f cares?
Ps. Gin, is it too early to make my reservations for 2005?
