Default Sturgis south

I know the big Sturgis, SD rally is coming up, but is anyone planning on going to the Sturgis, MS rally? It got cancelled a few years ago, the reasons will vary depending on who you ask, but it is supposed to start back up this year, the weekend of August 15th I believe. I'm sure,it'll be a sea of HD, but are any of y'all thinking about going?

Not a lot of people do I reckon. It used to have a pretty big turnout from what I hear. We'll see how this one goes, being the first time in a few years.

I'm not into the big "must be seen at rallies"...Sturgis, Bike week,..and such . I like the smaller ones...and not to sound "snobbish" but those that are brand specific .

I have attended B/Week, B/toberfest, Americade, H/Hoot...all just seem too crowded. wait in line for everything, IMO prices @ vendors ...inflated , gouging room rates...etc.

I headed out for the Hunter NY Victory rally earlier this year, but my sciatica got to pounding...so I headed back home. If there are no more this year ?..I'll try for one next year.

It definitely isn't a "big rally" it's in the small town of Sturgis, MS. I'm sure the vendor (vendor being a guy selling t shirts out of his trailer) prices will be ridiculous, but all event t shirts are pretty durn high. Still, it should be entertaining at the very least. Brings the town pretty good money too
