    You could change it around a bit.... Push through 500,000 rowdy people for a patch.. $10. Seven days and 2,800 miles on the road alone....... PRICELESS!:s

    I went out the week before. Had the roads to ourselves. Quiet nights good sleep. Prices hadn't been raised yet. Got my patch and had it sewn on for $10.00. Left just before the rowdys showed up and went to Denver to see my sister. Rode her home with no issues or close calls. Just a great trip, nice people and a very good time. Total milage 6492 miles. My new bike ( bought her in May) just turned 11,000 miles and I love it

    Please accept my sincere thanks for stimulating the economy of South Dakota... :p

    Still can't believe how much they jack the prices up for everything during rally week.

    You the man. I'm jealous. I heard projected numbers are that the Rally was up 18% from last year.
    That's a good sign.

    I rode to Sturgis on my '86 FXRS from Los Angeles, in 1989. I was a bit younger then! Took 2 wks; 3 days getting there, a week there, another week coming across the Pacific Northwest and down through Washington, Oregon, and Calif. Wonderful trip. I'd love to do it again, but I don't know if I'm up to that long on the road.
    I'm going to Idaho in a couple of weeks (on an 06 Softail Heritage); we'll see how that goes.
