Quite surprised at how little and non head turning the place is without 3 or 4 hundred thousand motorcyclists.
Speaking of Sturgis, or Daytona? Just kidding.
Add the bars and vendors and the fact that every town within 75 miles at least, feeds off the rally and when the big crowds are there it is huge.
Sturgis 3-9 Aug 2009. The idea this year is to try and extend the rally to 10 days instead of the usual one week. Obviously to get more people to come.
Bar tender at a lovely saloon in Deadwood told me that it was what made most folks financial years there.
Course in Daytona they have Black week, Race weeks plural, spring break, and so many other events while that is all for Sturgis.
