When I'm old and I can no longer ride I'm going to buy a Hardley so I have something to occupy my twilight years. In the meantime Stick with the Brick and Max the YeeeeHaaaaar. :bmwsmile

the only thing more prolific than harleys at Harley events are the trailers used to tow them there!
Been to Sturgis once and Daytona once, never again!

Fascinating to watch.  Looked at the first video for ten minutes just now.  A guy and a woman returned to their bike.  Animated conversation.  The woman started dancing for the passing bikes.  Eventually they backed out and left but it took ten minutes from the time they returned until they were underway.  Guy must have an airplane checklist to go through.

Only saw two bikes that weren't cruisers go by.  Both adventure bikes with aluminum sidecases.  One was a BMW F800.  Full gear on the riders.  Almost everyone else was without gloves, helmet and many in short pants.   Suppose it doesn't matter at the pace they're moving.

Like football and other events -- I prefer watching with my ass at home.  Too bad there's no sound.

Race might be a strong description.  But I see what you mean.

Despite little interest in a Harley aside from the "Then Came Bronson" dreams that still rattle round my head, and those probably have more to do with the girls he always seemed to attract than the motorcycle, I've found myself coming back to these livestreams over and over again.  There are little dramas to see at times.  I suppose they trigger the voyeur in me.

I'll have to see if there are any livestreams from the campgrounds!
