That wont be to bad. Compared to 1/2 a MILLION at Bikeweek, and 1/4 Million at Biketoberfest in Daytona.

C'mon down to Florida, a 6,000 bike event here is pretty much commonplace every weekend, in just about every county....just not in the middle of summer.

I personally dont attend many, but the few that I do are always well organized, and well behaved. ( but I dont wear a pirate costume, so probably why I dont get invited that often).

Just a side note, Daytona BMW offers 2 for 1 prices on brand new Metzlers during the events, which is something to look forward to !


Nothing wrong with a good healthy gathering, I suggest informing city council that it would be a good idea to supply the local residents with a week long supply of good quality earplugs, 'cause they're gonna need 'em !!!

I'm just thankful I live out in the country outside the city. Though, the route to Canyon Lake goes right by the street that spits you out of the subdivision.

In New Braunsfels? Dood, it's a huge tourist place with two, cold, crystal clear rivers running thru it. Huge toobing enterprise. Our intelligent city council, in an attempt to quiet the rivers down have banned jello shots, beer bongs, you can't have bigger than a 16 quart cooler, one toob per person, the size of that toob is restricted and if you dare show a tit they arrest you. The other stuff is a huge ticket. Our ex-mayor went out on the river with a 48quart cooler to test the waters and got a $250 ticket. The uproar has been so huge that a city councilman, who surprisingly enough lives on the river, has been recalled and voted out.

And they're throwing a HOG party? Hypocrits.

Ah, memories of floating down the Guadalupe river on innertubes trailing Igloo coolers like intercoastal barges. And if you got a real boat, Lake McQueeney for fishing. That was back in the 80's when I lived in TX. Sounds like either the river has gotten a lot more crowded since then or the powers that be more prudish.

I'd plan a trip somewheres else during that week if I were you.

I love the bikes and am in awe of the marketing machine The Motor Company has become. If you don't agree that the general makeup of the current Harley rider population is a little more than obnoxious, I would suggest looking around. If you think that is bias on my part, you should spend time looking for locations for Curve Cowboy Reunion with me. I will assure you that the general consensus of every venue we have talked to is that the 'Harley crowd' tends to be obnoxious and destructive. Several only considered our group because we weren't that crowd. While most locations enjoy the economic impact of any large group, many don't relish the idea of hundreds of of Harley riders swarming into their towns. For some venues this obnoxious and destructive behavior is only a perception, but for many it is a historic fact. While it is terribly unfair to generalize and many of my riding buddies on Harleys are considerate and fine people, even they lament the fact that the bulk of current Harley riders seem self obsessed and obsessed with noise and speed.

While I also cringe at the brand bashing that goes on around here, I assure you that neither the OP of this thread nor I besmirch the brand, just the large number of infantile people that choose to ride them.

I can also assure you that I do not have any sort of inferiority complex, I am generally pretty secure. I don't feel superior to anyone because of the brand they ride, but I certainly feel superior to those who are genetically incapable of being considerate to other motorists, citizens or genders.

I welcome debate on this subject, because I would very much like to find out where I am wrong. It would benefit me greatly to be able to successfully argue to any future home of a motorcycle gathering the errors of their preconceived notions. For now my only option is to assure them that we are not a 'Harley group'. While it may be only a small portion of the crowd that causes the problems, the larger portion doesn't seem to get together to put a lid on it.

Oh, and if you got 6000 BMW riders together, you would see some asses there as well.

I don't have a problem with Harleys or their riders, I rode them for 27 years. I do have a problem with poseurs.

OK. I looked around. In fact I go to gatherings all the time and I haven't noticed much more than the usual stuff whenever you get ANY group of people together. The MAJORITY of the riders are older, affluent professionals, out to have a good time.

Well, I'm glad that you are cringing - the entire time you make your comment.

Oh, I see. You don't actually feel superior, unless of course they deserve it.....

Well here's the one thing you said I agree with. I've gone to BMW gatherings (and good luck getting 6k beemers together in the first place, so maybe THAT is actually where the differences lie, and not in out "superior genetic makeup") and have seen guys ride like idiots all over the roads surrounding the "rally". The one advantage the beemers have is that they sound like sewing machines, so don't garner as much attention.

I'm glad you brought that up. Some of the local titty bars in San Antonio organized a "Boobs on Toobs" float. I've never seen a greater confluence of protestors and police. It was Sunday and I think instead of holding services, they protested.

Anyway, the gals and a whole butt load of guys, just floated the river. That's it. They contributed a purdy good chunk of change to a local charity.

Speaking of man tits, will you be joining us for the wet t-shirt contest at CCR?

Yah, I feel for ya. Reno has it's Street Vibrations thing in Sept. I've seen it grow over the years. Ya jes gotta grit your teeth and bare with it. It's amazing how obnoxious people can get some times. I try to leave the area as much as possible. Problem is I live in the south of town and work in the north. And "they" are in between

Grif,

they did an NC HOG thing thru here last year and if you didn't really try ot find it, you couldn't tell they were here. No worse than any other weekend, really. I read about it coming in the paper and then after it came thru, but never really noticed them.

Maybe your experience will be similar.

We're getting more touristy every day, so HDs parked downtown are pretty commonplace. Other than the occasional noisemaker, usually local, it's not too bad.
