Sturgis Bike Rally 1998

Once a year for a week Motorcycle dudes from all over come to the Sturgis rally to watch the demostrations, swap stories and just to hand around.I was fortunate to be in Sturgis by accident during the rally and had a chance to attend some of the events. I even met people from Europe and South America who had come to America primarily for this event. Although most of us perceive Harley Davidson dudes as outlaw loners or members of bike gangs, a good amount of the people here are "Yuppies" who had their bike shipped down so they can ride it around for the week. There are some people who do bear the journey and ride from through the continent to attend the rally.
