Well folks the 105th is beginning, and the flood has begun. By Friday, the town will be jammed, and the fun starts.The police have said they will only cite for grievous offenses, like public sobriety(a bad habit, frowned upon here in Brewtown) If the past is any indicator, there may be 50-70 thousand people in town for the weekend. I'll let you know how it goes,, If any of you will be in town, reply here, and I'll give you a tour of the town.

Okay, its over, its Monday morning,The din has subsided, only hear one every 5,or 10 minutes now, No stats on the weekend, but it was one big crowded place. (like a bucket of B.B's) There were problems, too many people crowding the Boss, and ZZ top concerts, some venues running out of beer, and water, (how can that be,, this is brewtown,,, must have been a problem at the Dept. of beer, and power,,) The motor company says only that they sold out nearly all of the 125,000 ticket packs, but non ticket attendance will probably add alot of heads to the count. Sadly, one biker was killed on the street, run down by a (allegedly) drunk cage driver. You tube is already filling up with video clips of things, so you can go there,to see all of the stuff from everywhere.

Hi Debb,so nice to hear from you as always. its been tough to get near the action at the lakefront, so crowded, its hard to move. Actually could not get in today, too crowded. But, the dealers in the area (6) are putting on some nice festivities, so one can find a party. Most of the gin mills are doing the same, so its one large party here. the latest guesses are around 80,000 people in town for this thing. And yes, I get lots of adoring stares on the Stella, (not really) I do enjoy the V-rod tho, liquid cooled,it doesnt mind the sunny 80's we are having. I'll let you know how it all goes here. xoxoxo

Its getting pretty busy in town now, the drone goes on to all hours, The cops have been okay so far, but never trust a Milwaukee cop,I have to say that there are way to many trailers here now, not just singles either. There are four and more place haulers pretty much littering the hotel lots.

Thanks D.T. The stella is my daughter's, (hence the pink) I used the pic to chide the dealer who was taking too long to fix my V-Rod. The Stella is a great scooter, and not easy to find these days.

Thanks for the report, Longbeard. I'm jealous of your Stella. I sold mine a year ago. Bad move on my part. Enjoy 105!!! DT
