Sturgis is the Mecca for bikers. It is something that you need to experience at least once in your lifetime whether you are a biker or a motorcycle enthusiast. The Sturgis Rally is one of the "Big 3" bike rallies (the other two are the Laconia Motorcycle Week and Daytona Bike Week) and it is on the 2014 Lightning Customs' Major Motorcycle Rallies List.
Sturgis Biker Rally General Info
The Sturgis bike rally had its origins in 1938 when the Jackpine Gypsies Motorcycle Club had some races that attracted a small number of attendees and the Black Hills rally has now grown to attracting hundreds of thousands of bikers every year.
One of the things that you need to do is take the opportunity to enjoy some of the rides to destinations like Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, Devil's Tower, the Badlands, Black Hills National Forest, Custer State Park, and Bear Butte State Park. Obviously you have to check out everything happening on Main Street and the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame is also very cool.
