The big annual motorcycle rally is underway in Sturgis, SD.
Over the years, from what we’re told, the rally has changed as more wealthy biker “wannabees” have showed up in Sturgis, crowding out the — how shall I put this? — authentic biker.
It’s hard to judge a motorcyclist by its cover, but we’re seeing some signs that there’s still room for the old days…
And some signs that there’s not.
Lots of pictures here.
