What Not to Do on Your Trip to Sturgis
I don't have a picture of this story and you'll understand why after you read it. Dan and I were weaving in and out of the vendor booths on the main drag of Sturgis. Walking toward us are a group of Son's of Silence, a regular joe biker, and another group of Son's of Silence. Well regular joe biker decides the Son's in front of him would make a great photo to show his friends. I mean he was inches from Outlaw Gang members. I'm looking over at him and getting ready to say...DON'T TAKE THAT PHOTO but it doesn't make it out in time. Snap...he's checking out his accomplishment on the view screen of his camera and smiling all big. All of a sudden here comes one of the members of the Son's and his property charging up behind him telling him to give them the camera and giving him the riot act about taking an OGM's picture. I don't know what happened to the poor regular joe biker because we got the hell outta there but there is a moral to this story...Learn a little bit about what you are attending and some of the rules of the motorcycle lifestyle. You should especially do this if you are a weekender so that you don't get the shit kicked out of you when you decide to attend a rally.
