STURGIS, SD, AUG. 1, 2015
If you are planning on attending the Sturgis Rally, which runs from August 3 through August 9, you will find that there are a lot of activities jammed into the week: bike shows, demo rides, road rides, concerts, poker runs, crowds, beauty pageants (…who wouldn’t want to be crowned “Miss Buffalo Chip”….?) and much more. The mayor is hosting a pub crawl, and there will be hillclimbs, motocross events, drag racing, half miles and short-track competition.
Some of the race events include the Pappy Hoel Memorial Outlaw Pro Am Short Track, the Jackpine Gypsies’ Hillclimb, the Pappy Hoel Vintage Half Mile National, the Street Bagger Short Track, the Pappy Hoel Classic Half Mile Pro races and, of course, the AMA Pro National Half Mile in Rapid City on August 4.
So pack up and head out for a real adventure! Come home with lots of stories and a souvenir tattoo… maybe Mount Rushmore across your chest…?
