SIMC: Sturgis Rally

Unknown Mami

I did manage to get out to the Rally for a little bit on Saturday afternoon. From what I understand attendance was down on the final Saturday of the Rally but it was still pretty busy.

As I drove toward historic main street looking for semi close parking I saw this motorcycle hearse. It is a sad sight but I can not think of a more appropriate hearse for a die hard motorcyclist.
It sure looked like everyone in this small town generates a bit of income during the Rally.
These lawn campers seemed to be enjoying the shade and proximity to all the excitement.
Of course there were a lot of really nice looking bikes, like this purple one that caught my eye.
 I did have to smile though when I read the sign on the back of this one that was parked right next to the purple bike. This may not be the prettiest but it sure looks like they have fun.
As you probably can guess there are tons of saloons, tattoo and apparel shops as well as food vendors galore.

There was even a dancing police officer that directs the traffic on the main street.
One playful person even showered the street with bubbles using an air conditioner to blow them over the sidewalk below.

I was pleased to see a few really awesome cars! I do like motorcycles but am more a car lover, especially classics.

Going down the middle of main street was a zip line, and boy did it look fun! No I didn't give it a try, but I sure wanted to.
There was a lot of unique apparel. There was the totally bizarre, the fun and the average. There was even some, oh wow, that is really neat.  Like the purse this woman has, that is made out of motorcycle license plates.
I hope you enjoyed your virtual visit to the Rally.
Have a great week and please join the fun by clicking the Sunday In My City badge at the top.

It does look like a lot of fun. It's been years since I last rode, but I always enjoyed motorbikes.

I've heard of this rally for many, many years but never got out that way. Thanks for sharing it with us! It looks like a lot of fun.

This looks like a photograph rich event. I love road bikes too, something so beautiful about them

It looks like all kinds of fun. I didn't even know something like a motorcycle hearse existed.
