Sturgis never fails to surprise us. Sure, the rally has changed quite a bit in its more than eight decades in existence, but it remains one of the most wild motorcycle parties anywhere in the US. From the Broken Spoke Saloon out to the Buffalo Chip, we hit all of our favorite spots to bring you these 15 pictures of the people and bikes that make Sturgis such a great rally.
Thousands of riders crowded Sturgis, South Dakota, and the neighboring towns for this year’s rally. The roads from Deadwood all the way to the Chip were packed with bikers and bike fans for the two weeks of the event. From live music to custom bike shows, there really is something for everyone out there. We hope you got a chance to experience the rally for yourself, but if not, let our pictures help you share in the experience!
