The rallies do net that area a lot of money, even after the bikers’ disproportionately large use of the area’s emergency services is taken into account. Unfortunately, a lot of the frontline service sector workers who have to deal with these visitors more than anybody else (except probably the emergency services personnel) don’t seem to see much of it. All the people I know who work in the service sector in the MB area say the bikers are bad guests and lousy tippers – how many people want extra hours at jobs that generally don’t pay much, just to put up with inconsiderate (and, from the looks of it, very insecure) jerks?
