The unofficial start is in just 3 days...it officially starts Monday but the concerts will start this weekend.
We have every law enforcement agency here...every biker club is represented...and lots of others just coming in for the love of riding. Our little town of Sturgis goes from 7000 to almost a million some years and just about overnight.
They truck the bikes in...ride them in...trailer them in...and fly them in from all over the world for one week of food, fun, races...and yes lots of nudity...not allowed on main street though.
Remember if you are a rider...wear your leathers...they can be replaced and your skin can't.
If you are not a rider and do most of your drive time on 4 wheels or more...watch out for those on 2 or 3 wheels...look...look again...and then one more time before leaving that stop light or sign.
Keep it safe and real.
