STURGIS, S.D. (AP) - People at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally attempted but failed to set an interesting world record - most people assembled in one spot wearing only their underwear.

The Rapid City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1gdljdu ) that the attempt made Wednesday at the Buffalo Chip Campground fell far short of the mark. Only 182 people gathered for a photo, well below the record of 2,270 people.

The event was organized by Greg and Jennie Stilton of Rapid City, who married at the campground in 2011. Jennie Stilton said the couple thought it would be “a comical way to set a world record.”

Participants might have failed in their attempt but they still had fun. Mark Goldstein, of St. George, Utah, said, “Where else but Sturgis could you do this?”
