Do the math. 10,000 bikers spending $600 apiece over a few days isn't that much. Figure half of that is simply food and accomodations. That leaves only $300 for beer. Figuring the greedy locals charge $2.50 per beer that works out to only about 3 beers per hour.

Better check your math! for 10,000 attendees $430K is only 43 bucks a pop, which these days doesn't even cover a tank of gas for the pickup trucks and RVs they used to tow their H-Ds to the rally! $600 apiece for 2 days ain't what it used to be...

If you really want to see a well behaved crowd, go to a road race. like Laguna Seca, Barber and the one in your own back yard at Road Atlanta, as far as the perfect Harley little gentlemen, you most be talking about the new yuppie HD guys, most of them are actually pretty friendly guys and girls.

At least a 1/3 of that money came from trailer parking fees.

Aye maytee. Arrrr.



Let's steal a bus and drive it around Carny park...or if we're in the Bahamas pirate a yacht out of a boat house and try to swamp a liberty boat with the watch change on board..."hey chief, wasn't that an airdale on the bridge of that yacht that just buzzed us?"



Or a shore patrol 4x4 Dodge power wagon in Gitmo. Even took a zero to the BOQ with all his gear..."my my, the duty is real lax around here..." he said. We then did a smoking burnout/doughnut in the gravel parking lot, pelted him and his bags with dirt & stones.



Haw haw, ah the sea stories could just go on and on...

Interesting how capital influx can turn the otherwise normally fearful and offended into cordial hosts and hostesses.

Remember that dust up at Gitmo after you guys were doing carrier quals and we were doing PEB's for 6 weeks? I broke one of those thick glass ashtrays over some guys head, cut the sh*t out of my hand and dropped the guy like a sack of 'taters. He had my bro pineapple in a headlock and pineapple was starting to lose it so I f*kkin' pasted him..



I think we were the only carrier to get kicked out of Guantanamo after 1 nights liberty..LOL
