800 Harleys? Try thousands

Dear Editor,

Dear Steve Smith,

Now that we all understand that your issue with the Independence Rally being held over the July 4th weekend is about the “noise” and not the “bikers,” I would like to comment. I don’t know who told you that 800 Harley riders had been invited to this event, but the reality is that every Harley rider in the world is invited, as well as riders of every other brand of cycle.

Luckily for you and your ears, only a couple of thousand will attend this year. I can only imagine how “offended” you will be in years to come as this annual event grows. The good news for you is that it took around 60 years for Sturgis to come to have over half a million attendees.
