SCMG Rally

On the first Sunday of October (and the first Sunday of May) a local motorcycle group, the Slimy Crud Motorcycle Gang (motto: "Ride Hard, Ride Short") hosts a rally event in a small town near Madison, Wisconsin. The event has grown considerably since the first I attended, from 3-400 bikes to well over a thousand. Yesterday's event was no different, despite the dreary and chilly weather. This is a highly disorganized event - on purpose - and there is no organization, structure, route, show, or any such thing to be found. It is, quite simply, an opportunity for motorcycle riders (and a few poseurs) to show up, look at some seriously cool bikes as well as some head-scratchers, then go for a self-guided ride to the secondary location at an even smaller town not far away. Some ride to that location, some do not, and everyone generally has a good time.

Here are a few photos from the event:
