Which turned out to be awesome! So many bikes! There were also quite a few woman with little-to-no clothes on... There was a booth for body painting so woman could walk around without shirts on, most of them should have probably kept their's on though. haha. There was a zip line that ran over the crowd, and there were bikes on the field so every time a band would play a song they liked, they would rev their engines and the crowd would go crazy. We stayed away from them because the exhaust was over whelming.
Lynell and Jackie had brought chairs, and so we were sitting where all the other "chair people" were and made good friends with the folks sitting next to us. Told them all about my walk and one of them decided that I was his future wife, but I just didn't know it yet I suppose. Everyone we met was super nice and when Jackie and I were looking around for a radio station to talk to, a guy and his wife/girlfriend gave us a ride on their golf cart across the fields of tents and RV's. I can only imagine how bad that must smell by the end of the week.
The Doobie Brothers put on a good show for about an hour or so, and we had $3-a-slice pizza and a $5 can of beer. Kid Rock came on around 11 and as soon as he hit the stage, it began to pour down rain and the thunder and lighting was amazing! And maybe a little unnerving, but more or less awesome! It rained like crazy for about 20 minutes and the lighting passed over us beyond the stage and lite up the sky the entire time Kid Rock was on stage. It was perfect.
What a great night, good way to end my Sturgis experience. ---The video below shows a little of the lighting.
