Sturgis Motorcycle Rally

General Sturgis Bike Week Information
The Sturgis bike rally started in 1938 when the Jackpine Gypsies Motorcycle Club had some races which attracted a small number of attendees. Now the Black Hills rally attracts hundreds of thousands of bikers every year. What is often called Sturgis Bike Week has had fluctuating attendance due to the boom in the industry in early to mid 2000, slowdown over the last few years, and the poor economy. No matter if there are 400K or 700K attendees it is still one of "The Rallies" you will always remember.

Two other premier rallies are Laconia Bike Week and Daytona Beach Bike Week. The third rally that has had a significant decline in attendance because of laws passed to try and squash the rally, but that there has been some positive news and that we hope recovers soon is the Myrtle Beach Bike Week.
