The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is going on this week. Sturgis is 217 miles from here and there are motorcycles everywhere you look. A lot of the bikers ride out of Sturgis and come here and tour around this area. It's hard to tell the people who're heading to Sturgis from the wannabees who live here and drag their bikes out, put on black tee shirts, black scarves on their heads and race around pretending they are. Occasionally you can tell - some older fellow in his Bermuda shorts and white socks with his suspenders is a dead giveaway - I don't think he's going to Sturgis!
Every year that tiny town fills up with bikers completely taking it over. This year I just checked and the count is almost 500,000. The population for the entire state is 756,000. It's kind of fun to think about but you won't find Leonard and I there (not with his suspenders!) It's a big bad party, the women who go do NOT look like the ladies in the picture here. That would be more like you and me. Diane
