Because in addition to the bikes there are concerts and races and bike shows, five blocks of Main Street bikes-only street vibe, the 12th Annual Mayors Ride, Michael Lichters annual exhibit, the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame, organized rides, some pretty impressive watering holes, custom legends, blue skies and warm, sunny days. Its all waiting for you in Sturgis and the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota.
