    I'm not a motorcycle type of guy.. but, it is exciting to see Harley riders from around the world riding around town. (saw some from Scotland today)

    Are any HTF'ers coming up? If they are, they're probably already on their way as the big event starts Thursday.

    Apparently, there is a huge mystery musical guest for the big party on the lakefront Saturday. Rumors of the Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Kid Rock, even U2 showing up are flying all over town. Here's a quote from the local paper:

    I love motorcycles, which is why I don't care for H-D's machines. [​IMG] (Just kidding, H-D owners.)

    I won't be back home in Milwaukee until a few weeks after the party is over. I remember the 95th anniversary party and was stunned by the number of riders who came into town. I can only imagine how many people are there right now. I hope that the week is a fun (and safe) time for all and that the trip is worthwhile for those who came a long ways. Oh yeah- you now have an excuse to play your movies as loud as you want. You can always blame it on the hogs! [​IMG]

    Ten guys from work here took time off, are using a semi to haul the bikes up, and staying there.

    Why don't people RIDE them to these shows anymore? The road trip is the fun part. I'm with Jack on this one.[​IMG]

    Yes, I've seen H-D "riders" trailering their bikes to events just scores of miles away. Never understood the mentality. And some of the H-D "weekend warriors" posing along L.A.'s world-famous Melrose Avenue are hilarious. I'll see several of them rumbling to the Johnny Rocket's to see and be seen. When they "corner," many use their legs as freaking outriggers.

    Well, it's Thursday, and I cannot believe how many bikes are in town. I work in Milwaukee, and am awestruck.

    Basically SE Wisconsin is flooded. The Hell's Angels even came up for this one. Their not wearing any colors, however.

    There's something to do every night. Even the small dealerships have numerous beer tents and food/vendors out front.

    Thiensville's main drag is closed tonight for the Booze Bros. to play. I'm heading down.[​IMG] [​IMG]

    This sucks. I'm not a motorcycle guy, but I do enjoy Milwaukee's party-type atmoshpere during the summers (Summerfest, etc.). I wish I was there. Oh well, I'll just have to wait another 100 years!

    So do you have to have a HD to go to these things? What would be the reaction to a bunch of bright yellow crotch rockets come rolling in with the guys wearing those full bright colored leather outfits?
