Traffic is very busy at Sturgis.
This officer regulates traffic.
He is, actually, dancing….
Everything is unusual there.

They fly Tony in every year. He is from Providence I think and is famous for his moves while directing traffic.

Orchid I've always wanted to visit Sturgis just to see the bikes. Now I want to go just to see the women. Thanks for the photos.

Great pics, once again.
Orchid, did you go to the wild part of town at night?
I have not been to Sturgis, would be fun.
I also want to do bike week in Daytona.

Great pics, once again.

Thank you very much.
I have bought a new camera. It’s Nikon D5200.

Orchid, did you go to the wild part of town at night?
I have not been to Sturgis, would be fun.

I spent only three days in Sturgis. What I try to show in my pictures is just a tip of iceberg.
The latest I stayed in town and clubs was 10pm. I had to download pics and charge batteries for the next day.
Sturgis is a VERY SAFE PLACE.
Police works very well. I have never seen even one drunk person.
Bikers do not drink much. But they like to have fun.
But it is very expensive place. We paid $300 per night. It’s the cheapest price of hotel in Sturgis.
If you stay in Rapid City, it will be twice cheaper.
Camping is even cheaper. Most of people are camping there.

I also want to do bike week in Daytona.

Hmm.. I hear about Daytona the first time from you. Interesting…
I decided to bring my life to another level and buy a bike.
It will take some time. Probably, I will start next spring.
In two weeks my school will start, and I am going to be very busy again.

Sturgis is biggest bike event in the world, 400 to 800,000 bike attend.
Next biggest is Laconia in NH 300 to 400,000 bikes.
Then Daytona, 200,000 the only difference is Daytona is 95% harley event.
I have been to Laconia many years ago.
the largest on in this area is about 40,000 bikes.
