Anyone interested in going to the fall Slimey Crud run this year?
For those unaware of this event it is a HUGE gathering west of Madison WI that started somewhere back in the 70's and is a very informal unconstrained meet-up and ride. There are anywhere from 1000 to 3000 people and bikes who show up every year.
They do this twice a year - The first Sunday in May and again the first Sunday in October.
It starts at a bar in Pine Bluff at whenever-you-feel-like-it o'clock AM and then folks meander their way to another couple bars in Leland via whatever route they desire.
I'd heard about it for a few years but finally went for my first time last year. It is a fantastic experience with all sorts of different bikes and people. Everyone I saw and met was friendly and sociable.

I'm planning on going again next week provided it isn't raining. Even when the weather is crappy they still get hundreds of attendees.

Here is their Facebook page:

my garsh!
that is as big as Sturgis!
Well that made me curious so I had to check. I was guessing Sturgis was drawing something like 200,000 people each year... but I was wrong.

The average attendance looks to be about half a million! Yeesh! In 2015 they say over 700,000 people attended!

I never had any burning desire to go to Sturgis. If I ever have the chance I'll go just to see it once but I can't imagine I'd make any serious effort to go.

When you are positive you want to go, let me know. I will consider it but not a serious attempt either
