Then why the reactions? C'mon now, fess up. Its bad enough I live in a city full of jerks who have to have their way and have no tolerance for other's opinions or beliefs (remember the post election riots here in Portland?) but I thought we here could get along. Peace bro.
I've been to the Sturgis and Daytona rallies. Never had a problem, saw a wreck, a fight, or really anything bad. Just a bunch of people having fun on, around, and because of motorcycles.
Your post just came off to me as saying only the people who are posers, cause wrecks, and such are there. Very far from the truth.
500k people on bikes for 10 days and a tiny, small fraction of a percent have issues? That sounds like going somewhere where nearly everyone is experienced and responsible. And I've been there...and it is.
I apologize if my post seemed harsh or unfair. I thought you might be tolerant of other people's views. (That's a joke there).
Maybe in order to understand mankind, we have to look at the word itself: "Mankind". Basically, it's made up of two separate words - "mank" and "ind". What do these words mean ? It's a mystery, and that's why so is mankind.
