I would like to go to Sturgis, I also ride in many rides, not rally's per se, but never thought to post pix here. I will see if I can dig some up. We, as many other CVMA members here, do things like escorts for funerals, we escorted the traveling wall for War on Terror casualties, things like that.

A rally like Daytona Beach is too many people in one place for me.

Planning a Sturgis trip for next summer. Never been but it's a bucket list item. Our plan is go a few days before so we can do the riding without the crowds, then hang for a couple days of the rally before we get out of dodge. I'm not a huge fan of the crowds either. Have done Americade a few times. Great riding in that area & it's definitely a more tame crowd than most others.

I know what ya mean TFG. I didn't think of posting pix either until I was clicking around on my 'puter and found some old pix. Thought they could be a start of a Rally thread.

As said by some, I do more local/charity rides also and very few rally's anymore. Mainly Laconia and Myrtle beach. Thought abt doing Sturgis one yr, but then saw that short lived series on it abt the Saloon there and said F that noise.

To may people, to much of a cluster****

After a test ride, I'm passing on the big Kawasaki. It felt way too big and despite having the 1400CC's, it felt fat and slow.

It is hands down far more comfortable than their standard sportbikes, but still has a boatload of pickup. I can't wait.
