I have been to sturgis.
Your outfit is fine if that's the message you want to send.
you will be amazed at the broad and varied people who attend sturgis - there will be business men/women, big tough "biker" guys/women, lesbians, housewives, bankers, etc...
However, there is also a very dark and scary underbelly to Sturgis - as you walk deeper into the booths selling shirts and stuff, you may find some VERY racist people/items.
Lots of women show their breasts to strangers etc...
my suggestion, stick close to your bf and others that you know until you understand what is going on. There are TONS of people there - the vast majority are good people who just love bikes and the whole atmosphere.
anyway, if you want to go dressed as his "slave" or whatever, it will be fine and most likely go pretty unnoticed due to the multitudes of others in their own fetish wear. Remember, you can ALWAYS change your clothes if you feel uncomfortable.
Sorry if this is TMI :)
How did Sturgis bike rally begin?
The first rally was held on August 14, 1938, by the "Jackpine Gypsies" motorcycle club, who still own and operate the tracks, hillclimb, and field areas where the rally is centered. The first event was called the "Black Hills Classic" and consisted of a single race with nine participants and a small audience. The founder is generally considered to be Clarence "Pappy" Hoel. He purchased an Indian Motorcycle franchise in Sturgis in 1936 and formed the "Jackpine Gypsies" that same year. Jackpine Gypsies was inducted to the Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 1997.
The focus of a motorcycle rally was originally racing and stunts. In 1961, the rally was expanded to include the Hillclimb and Motocross races. This could include half-mile track racing (the first year in Sturgis, there were 19 participants), intentional board wall crashes, ramp jumps and head-on collisions with automobiles
Sturgis Motorcycle Rally?
I haven't been to Sturgis yet but I went to Daytona with my husband and I had a great time. I'd be willing to bet you will have a lot of fun if you give it a chance - if you go with a positive attitude, you might find you'll want to go back in the future and spend more time there. There will be plenty to do to keep you both busy for 8 hours so you're probably not going to find any proof that a day there will be a waste of time.
In the very least, you've agreed to compromise by stopping at Sturgis - if you really want him to go with you to Michigan, then it's not really fair to make him feel guilty for wanting to spend a day at Sturgis and he will certainly be in a better mood while visiting your family. If it's resentment you feel for not seeing your family more often, then address that issue separately... and maybe make the trip to your hometown by yourself next year so that then, you can do the things that you want to do.
