That looks like Rt. 17 going north into Helen, GA on a summer weekend afternoon. If I never return to Helen, it will be too soon. I could not imagine the chaos and waiting in traffic inbound to Sturgis.

G'day,

Vinish

As one who abhors crowds, especially where drinking and riding are mixed, I never gave going to that event a thought. Been there when its not on and found Sturgis to be a tiny, one horse town and the roads in the Black Hills absolute nirvana when I don't have to follow a bunch of flatland Harleys. So my not being there leaves room for 50 more to attend. The Hells Canyon Rally is only 300 miles from me, has the same features, much smaller and many great riding roads around it.

Looks like a few people rode into trailer week.
I can't imagine the traffic, someday I'll visit for the scenery of the region but not for the trailers.

I would love to go. If I do, it won't be during Sturgis Week.
