Cliché as it may sound, this is the granddaddy of rallies for a reason. With a stunning setting in South Dakota’s Black Hills, surrounded by miles upon miles of fantastic roads to ride and a mind-blowing slate of activities firing off all week long, the Sturgis Rally truly has something for everyone. Sturgis has been around since 1938, and every August the small town in South Dakota typically swells to around 500,000 people. Even if you’re not into Harleys, there are huge splashes of other colors going on within the sea of orange and black, and if you like music, you’ve come to the right place; an enviable bill of entertainment unfolds all week long at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip Campground (dubbed the Best Party Anywhere). This year even Snoop Dogg will be hitting the stage along with the likes of Styx and Kid Rock.
It’s a bucket-list event—a full-on motorcycle experience in the middle of a world-class riding location. Toss in the various drag racing events, hill climbs, American Flat Track, hooligan contests, bike shows, and art exhibits, and you’ll be struggling to see it all in 10 days.
Pro Tip: In real life, Sturgis is normally a small town (population 7,000) so count on sitting in traffic during your visit to Main Street. The same goes for popular attractions like Mount Rushmore and Devils Tower—go early in the day on weekdays to beat the crowds. For more info, click over to: sturgismotorcyclerally.com.
