Plan your trip to Sturgis and make the most of your vacation. There's lots of nice riding in the surrounding areas but downtown Sturgis South Dakota, in the middle of Rally, isn't one of them. Get information about the Sturgis SD area and plan to see a few sites.
People come from all over the world every year to gather in the beautiful Black Hills for the largest motorcycle rally in the world.
This year is the 70th and it is packed here. I haven't seen this many rally goers for quite a few years.
Usually the rally is the first full week of August but, this year it officially starts today August 8th.
I went down town yesterday and took some pix that I will post here.
Every year I see more and more women riders. (took a couple pix of them).
I haven't seen many original bikes yet, but there are a lot of nice lookin ones. I'll keep lookin for them! I did see one that I'll share here.
Got a picture of the traffic too, even though all of these guys have arrived, there are still thousands, tens and even hundreds of thousands of bikers that aren't included.
There's somethin for everyone here during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally!
Used to be the temp's got into the 100's here during rally week, but the last couple of years that's changed. The entire summer is cooler, last year it barely got into the 90's.
This year might be a little warmer. We've already had a couple of 100 degree days , but it still cools to 60 or 70 when the sun goes down. There was a lot of rain this spring and the temps barely got above 70 until the middle of June.
Still have a little rain storm most days in the afternoon, but the rest of the day is comfortable.
Visitors to Sturgis come for many reason. The number one reason that hundreds of thousands of visitors descend on the town during the first full week of August every year is, the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally!
Summer has finally arrived this year and it has gotten off to a great start. We had the first Cushman Rally about 2 weeks ago, then the rodeo and lots of other upcoming events.
I didn't plan to start this blog tonite, but since I did I'll have to get back to it with really useful info.
The age to qualify for the discounts that seniors enjoy varies from place to place. I never had an over the hill party but I take advantage of the senior discounts when I can.
This should be an interesting blog for me. Since there is no advertising here it doesn't really matter what I write about. I really enjoy reading a good book and I love to write.
I do have a few blogs already but they are built around products and advice.
