I doubt I would go again just to go, but last year my phone rang and the guy on the other end was saying how dudes were riding in from upper state New York, N.C., Washington state, Texas, and points between. There's a room always available and if I can spend months humping the back hills of the "Stans with these guys, I'm pretty sure we'll have each other’s backs in South Dakota! That opportunity I will never pass up! All the revelry of Sturgis just made it all better!
Me, I would stay the heck away from any of the “campgrounds” in the local area. They get pretty nasty after a couple of days… and the “partying” is getting tamer and tamer each year. Traffic congestion in and around those places are also the worse. I hate friggin’ lines, and lines are what you’ll be waiting in quite often if you don’t know your way around.
One thing you might want to pay attention to on the responses you get here... A lot of folks will talk down about the rally, or anything else for that matter, but you might want to ask them if they've actually been there... or any other rally for that matter. my .02 anyway. A lot of times a persons perspective changes if they actually attend an event. It's real easy to sit home on ones couch and ridicule something. Just sayin'......
So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.
Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.
"Every man's life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another" Ernest Hemingway
