    they have around 9 to 10 Thousand people usually.
    There are food vendors, and bike accessory vendors, demo rides, and various shows and seminars and events to keep you busy, as if riding was not enough. Also, you usually have a chance to win swag and even a BMW or two.
    I have somewhere around 17 or 18 under my belt, and if you don't have fun, you are either doing it wrong or you are not a fun person.
    :lol3
    It does tire some people out though.

    The heat has scared me away. I'm headed to the mtns instead. I don't tolerate heat very well. I'll definitely make the RA next year in Asheville though. Y'all stay safe and drink plenty of Gatorade.:wave

    I left there this afternoon and came home. Too freaking hot plus I ahve been on the road since Saturday. Went to NC first and then made our way back to Bloomsburg via NC, KY, TN, WV. VA and finally PA. I was camping and just had an awful night sleep and could not see doing it for another 3 days. Total trip mileage was over 2300 miles so all my riding was done anyway. Spent some money with Olympia MotoSports and Bead rider. So doing my part for the economy.


    Have fun and stay hydrated.

    I was sucking down the hometown favorite - Troeg's Hopback Ale.

    On Wednesday, the friendly servers were mixing Yuengling Black & Tans for me. :slurp

    I kept switching between all of the ones available - the wheat, hop ale, and porter. Would have liked to drink just the porter, but I found that in the heat I preferred the lighter choices. :dunno
