Really?? No way I figured sturgis was gonna be huge I planned on going next year. Tell me more about it. My friends said last year the Oklahoma utv takeover was crazy busy looks like they have also more planned for this year
We were told it was going to be a large event, so we signed up, along with 37 other companies to be vendors.
After set up day, we all literally sat around and saw no one. I went and checked with the lady handling registrations and found out only 77 people actually signed up.
Lots of events scheduled and the only participants, were mostly vendors since they had nothing else to do.
The vendor next to us drove from St George Utah, and he sold two hats all week for $30.
UTV Takeover came up to all of us the last day, and promised to call us the next week and give us special pricing to come to Waynoka. Never heard from him.
Posted the fact on their Facebook page that there were only 77 attendees and it was promptly deleted.
When Al McBeth did his attempted record jump, there were maybe 50-60 people watching.
I know the event in Oregon is very successful and hopefully Waynoka will be too.
Personally, I don’t see Sturgis ever being much. Too far out, and Full Throttle could care less about anything other than the bike rally. The UTV event was just an attempt to fill a few spots in the campground since they already had staff to prepare for the bike rally.
