I think this is a position held by many people who choose not to attend rallys, because a rally can be so much hunkering down - thus the vendors, entertainment and seminars. Others use the rally as a base point to ride the area.

If the rally is not for you...it's not for you. We all enjoy our bikes in different ways and for different reasons.

No one needs to be offended, we all choose our own ride.
