Harley-Davidson is planning a full schedule of activities and events for the 74th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in the Black Hills of South Dakota.
Sturgis, which runs from Saturday, Aug. 2 through Saturday, Aug. 9, is one of the largest motorcycle rallies in the world.
Harley-Davidson has created a free mobile app to help attendees keep track of all the activities, rides and demos scheduled throughout the week. Go to iTunes or Google Play and search for “H.D. Sturgis: Events.”
The app features the complete Harley-Davidson Sturgis event schedule, maps, H.O.G. experiences, a dealer locator, plus optional push notification updates.
Among other things, the company will also showcase Project LiveWire, its first electric motorcycle, and the brand-new Street 750 motorcycle, which is now available at dealers.
