Jeez. I completely forgot about Sturgis yet again.

Hey, Buz. We gotta remember to show up next yet to sell spray-on road grime.

No disrespect but there is no "David Mann of our times" The guy might be a good artist or whatever but there's only one Original. A concept that seems lost these days when everything gets spun off ad infinitum.

Just like Sturgis in fact with it's celebrity rides and TV star appearences, not something I'd be interested in I'm afraid.

Half a f***ing million people now. And probably all the Rubbies in North America.

Default Where to begin.

I'm not sure what the appeal is. I have never had the desire to buy the spectacle. I can however appreciate the Sl^ts as much as the next guy. Maybe that's what it is.I am also happy that R. Lee Ermey is still commanding a paycheck.

Brand-named, trademarked rebellion by uniformed nonconformists on generically-custom machines.

I'm not ashamed to admit that I like Journey.
