Rally Top 10
- (Copyright 2002 Sturgiszone.com) Deader than a jackrabbit
run over by 500 bikes, I'm afraid. That's the verdict
on the first annual Buffalo Bash in Rapid City during
A shame, perhaps, because it offered free food, with
beer sales going towards Optimists projects. But it
was pretty bleak when I was there during the afternoon
watching them take down barriers that was supposed
to protect the hordes that did not show. There were
a lot more people at the Civic Center. And of course,
Sturgis is always packed.
There are always thoughts in Rapid City of luring
most of the rally away from Sturgis. It's a purely
greedy concept. And in the end it won't work, unless
Sturgis big shots blow it with a case of self-inflicted
avarice, which could easily happen through a combination
of greed and stupidity on their part. A distinct possibility.
Foot, Keeping the Precious Body Fluids Up
It may sound crazy, but I'm getting in shape at Sturgis
2002. And I don't mean just beer drinking shape. The
fact is, with so many bikes at Sturgis, and the roads
being clogged, it's a lot faster to walk most places.
So, I'm hoofing it. It's hard, I know. And I'm forced
to stop frequently for refreshing beverages. But hey,
you've got to keep a high leve of precious bodily
fluids. (stolen from Dr. Strangelove)
2002 Bikers Die on the Road
when you get this many people on the road, people
die. And it's happening again this year.
Four died yesterday. A female rider got too close
to a truck and trailer her husband was driving, and
he ran over her. Three died near Cheyenne Crossing
in the Black Hills. Another man died Monday when his
bike slid into a trike.
Bike safe. And enjoy life while you're here walking
up later this week - the promised gang data, and sliding
along the slippery edge of good taste at the Buffalo
