    We're torn on this one.
    As in, looks like could be major fun ...
    But at the same time, worry about pe'oing the local populace who already hate motorcycles.

    Decisions, decisions.

    It is major fun! A lot of people cheer you on, take pictures, video, even bring their kids out to watch! You just have to experience this, it is one of the most fun days I ever had on a motorcycle!

    Agreed...
    Only 5% or so of the locals appear concerned / frustrated / hostile.
    It's totally worth it.

    My ride last year...the shovel guy is in there somewhere (12:50).

    It's long (22min), but there are some captions! No soundtrack - hey it's only my second video!

    We should figure out where is yard is and the night before extend his fence height or replace his shovel with a small trowel.

    That makes two Shovel Guys. The one I encountered (different year) was standing in the middle of the street.

    The next year, I came across Bludgeon Man standing at the entrance of an alley.

    That same year Van Lady was parked at the entrance of an alley, doors open on both sides, and standing in front, scolding.
