2014 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, Sturgis, SD.
If you have not yet attended the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in the Black Hills of South Dakota, you owe it to yourself to pack up your bike, truck, motorhome or what ever mode of transportation gets you and your motorcycle there to attend. Naturally, we think you should pack up and ride there, it will be an experience you will not soon forget. How cool would it be to ride a brand new Indian Motorcycle back to Sturgis?
Sturgis is unlike any other rally in the country because the rally basically takes over the entire town of Sturgis for two weeks in August. Merchants lease their stores to motorcycle apparel companies, t-shirt vendors and motorcycle accessory companies. There are manufacturer displays, demo trucks, new product unveils, and every brand, year and model motorcycle produced. It’s like a running motorcycle museum.
The Sturgis motorcycle rally started with a motorcycle club putting on racing events back in 1938 organized by the Jackpine Gypsies. Clarence “Pappy” Hoe purchased an Indian Motorcycle dealership in 1936 and formed the Gypsies club. My guess is that There will be a new Indian dealership in Sturgis for 2014 along with a huge product reveal during the first week of this years rally, stay tuned…
Ok, here’s several reasons you need to attend this rally if you have never been there;
- Bikes, Bikes, Bikes, every brand, year, make and model.
- Chicks and Shirtless Studs (for our women riders :-)
- Campground Shenanigans
- Black Hills, monuments and serpentine roads
- Concerts, top talent
This is the one place on earth where everyone gets along, as long as you’re on two wheels your part of the family. Everyone in attendance understands going in that this event draws people from all demographics, doctors, lawyers, teachers and construction workers, it doesn’t matter. When you put on that leather jacket and helmet nothing else matters, you enter the world of brotherhood, Sturgis…what are you waiting for?
