The Top 10 Wildest Biker Rallies in the United States

Everyone knows the big biker rallies. Daytona, Sturgis, Laconia, Myrtle Beach. Hundreds of thousands of bikers load up their bikes (or trailers, RVs, trucks, etc.) and head to these destinations each year. They'll fight traffic, long lines at restaurants, high hotel or camping costs,  jacked up beer prices, and sometimes even local government not even wanting them there, in order to spend a week hanging with friends, taking pictures and hopefully, bringing home some good stories to tell.

Then there are the smaller rallies.

These are lesser known events which take in pastures, campgrounds, even old airports, all across the country, where 3,000 to 5,000 bikers get together with one purpose... partying. These are the kinds of parties where you bring a chase truck just because you can't fit enough beer on your bike. Where you bring a camera just so you can piece together what the hell went on there when you get home. Where "Wet T-shirt" contests turn into "What T-Shirt?" contests. If you've been to some of these wondrous events, you know what I mean. We've done our research, and here is the Bars4bikers.com  list of the Top 10 Biker Rallies in the United States. If your favorite party isn't on this list, you might want to check one of these out.
