I hate it when naked women turn into RVs and golf carts, though not nearly as much as I hate it when naked women turn into bookshelves and crossbows.

Harley riders are all in thier 60's...I think the lack of naked women would be a plus.

might it be due to the fact that the average age of attendees is probably creeping up? how many people are actually under forty in attendance?

Trashy old white people drinking shiatty domestic beer and rocking out to Toby Keith? Surprised they're having trouble keeping attendance high.

I went to Sturgis, first time, last Sunday. Went to see Halestorm perform at the Buffalo Chip. It was surreal, and that was a damned good show. Yea, most of the bikers were older and wanted to see ZZ Top (who was up after Halestorm... we left because we had to drive back home to Pierre). But having a bunch of drunk Harley and Chopper-riders around you in costumes, revving their engines instead of cheering, was awesome. Truly, I had a blast.

We really do suck anymore. Where is our new HST'S and rockers destroying hotel rooms? Outrageous has become Beiber drinking alcohol in a country he's of legal age to drink in.

Hope you all a good time when there was still some fun to be had.

I've driven thru South Dakota (car, not bike) and there are precious few roadside rest stops for ol Gramps and his trick prostate... so unless the average Harley rider is having his bike trucked there, I can see why it's kinda fading. Plus, Sturgis really is just a wide spot in the road, at best.

Both of these. The demo is just aging.


The golf carts about kill me - you're at a motorcycle rally

I wonder how many Hoverounds there were in attendance?

FTA:With a sunburned face from his 6,000-mile cross-country journey to Sturgis from Chesapeake, Va., Lantz said he and his buddies come from across the nation on their bikes to meet up at the Buffalo Chip every year.

What round-about way do you have to go to make an 1,800 mile trip into 6,000?

Where's the story of the rodeo clown who denigrated a bull by wearing an Obama mask, basically telling the bull that he was such a loser that he could only gore Obama?  Maybe.  No that's low!

LOL. Riding a Harley Davidson makes you a badass. Those leather jackets and chaps are really tough looking, guys.

Bear Butte was awesome in a ghostly, moonscape sort of way.  Only drawback was the composter toilet near the visitor's center was so full of shiate, it had crested the toilet seat.   I had no idea what the Buffalo Chip was when I passed by it.  It was deader than a Kennedy hooker when I was out there.

I just rolled through Sturgis on my way to somewhere else, so I'm getting a kick.

Also, I'd just like to observe that AC/DC is popular with the "old guy on a motorcycle" demographic.

The Chip IS mostly dead for a good chunk of the  year and rises only during rally time.

Is there such a thing as shoulder herpes?  If there is, that dude's working on a double case.

And thanks for the auto-play video that doesn't stop when you hit pause.  Good to see that progress is still being made in ways to make a website suck.

Maybe he went via Greenland.  I was trying to do the math, too. Fairbanks, Alaska to Chesapeake, Virginia, and thence to Sturgis is about 6300.

The basic problem is that the smaller number people born during the great depression concentrated all the wealth into a smallish portion of the boomers, and then GenX got even less. And GenY has just given up. And the Millennials just don't care.

Just wait until the Boomers all try to retire at the same time. Ain't no one got money to buy up their retirement assets. But if you can manage to have a few million you'll be able to buy all the classic rides and fine art for a tenth their auction prices in the 90's and oughts.
 
2013-08-12 01:32:05 AM  
My only trip there was back during year 50. Back then Harley riders were still people you had to think twice about before approaching. Now the demo is a bunch of middle class pretend bad asses who aren't bikers in the past sense at all. I doubt they have sex shows at the Buffalo Chip anymore

I think it's more technology than dollars though. Newer cars require not only specialized knowledge to work on, but also specialized equipment. These days, shade tree mechanics are hacks, no matter how skilled.

Couple that to the reliability of modern cars and there's not much reason for a kid to acquire the skills or equipment unless it's as a professional pursuit..

Don't let anyone kid you. There were never a "whole lot" of naked women at these things. There was only one reliably reported sighting, and most of the witnesses are pretty sure it was just an insanely drunk Wil Wheaton tucking it in.

/wait... Buffalo Chip rallies? This wasn't about Fark parties?
 
2013-08-12 04:22:13 AM  
Had a great time there in '85. Was planning on heading back in '91, but somehow managed to get myself arrested a couple days beforehand. Back then, there were a lot more people flying colors and a lot fewer weekend warriors. Angels, Jokers, Banditos, etc from all over the country "peacefully" coexisting for a week, hundreds of naked girls (many of which were actually young and hot), and the indescribable sensation of an entire small town rumbling under your feet 24/7 as thousands of unmuffled Harley engines pushed tons of steel up and down the main drag.

Of course, I was shiatfaced the entire time, so that may have colored my memories somewhat, but as near as I can tell, it was still a hell of a party.

Air racing is taking a hit too. After that big crash two years ago I'm surprised that Reno recovered. The planes and their pilots are getting older and they're burning through spare parts like crazy. To make matters worse, they've revised the rules several times to keep modern carbon-fibre planes from out-competing the classics and it's going to bite them in the ass when the WW2 birds can't fly anymore. The biplane and sport class events don't draw anywhere near the crowds that the unlimiteds do.

Basically it is, these events are now for profiteers not the people attending, ticket to burning man require reservations. Posers

Most bikers are getting old and the real bad assets can have a rally anywhere they want as they combined have 20 times the reasources of these event organizers. Also they can't afford to be seen in public.

Went to a sturgis when I was in grade 8 on our way to see Mount Rushmore it was completely by accident. Biker types are generally pretty old and have only gotten much older.

I sure saw a lot of fat guys with big boobie girls there. The only thing I found appealing was all the signs for free beer all night with hotel rental

What a caned experience. Perfect for your lower middle class serfs.


FTA: With only two pairs of pants and no t-shirts for his week-long stay, Wilson, who stood clutching a 6-pack of beer, said he has made some great memories at the Buffalo Chip. He said he would stay there for the rest of his time coming to the rally.

"We pack real light, live real dirty," Wilson said.

My dad did this kind of crap before the diabeetus snuck up on him and took him out of the game.
Hey y'all, bring your walkers and hoverrounds to Buffalo Chip and be unspontaneously spontaneous!

Boomers have orchestrated the near total destruction of the country, both financial and cultural.
