I must be catching your eye problem Bijou, I read that as "Sturgeons and motorcycles and stuff".

I used to own a motorcycle, but I totaled it on the 10. Luckily walked away pretty much unharmed (Hurt my knee a little, but nothing broken)

A fish is nice, too.

The Black Hills were frequently on our 'out west' vacation itinerary when I was a kid. The Passion Play aside, I have less vivid memories of the actual hills than I do of Wall Drug, alligator wrestlers, Jelly Stone, Mt. Rushmore etc....

Not a motorcycler, nor ever been to the Sturgis Rally. I don't think it's the kind of thing I'd enjoy.

Maybe might have once upon a time, but I've become far too paranoid about leg injuries to motorcycle now.

I find that statement amusing.

Probably because they're just hills, only really notable because they're in the middle of a big flat area. It's all the other stuff in the area that's interesting.

I've thought about getting a motorcycle. With a four mile commute, it's actually reasonable.

I'd have to learn to ride it first, though.

I ride. I've never been to Sturgis, at least not during the rally. I went through a week later once and bought a t-shirt. I've been to a few local rallys that are much more low key, it's always a good time.

I have thought of going, but never made it a priority. I know people who've went, and seen ample footage about it. One former colleague trashed his ride out there, ended up going around a bend and another biker slid into him after losing control, he nearly lost his leg by gashing it to the bone, shattered it, and they had to screw it back together. That's why I'm a little wary, you get that many bikers together, some of them drinking heavily, and accidents and fatalities are bound to happen.

I ride but I don't think I would ever ride to Sturgis, I have been to Laconia a few times but via car not uncaged.
