why we ride, i am sturgis

"We've received thousands of letters from fans telling us that after seeing Why We Ride they decided to 'throw their leg over two-wheels' and become motorcyclists. We can not stop with just one movie. This is now a movement and we would love to have you, the fans, help us continue our mission of promoting what is good about motorcycling with audiences worldwide. This webpage is our crowd funding campaign to achieve that!"

"We made Why We Ride about a community. Now, we want to invite the community to help make our next film: I AM STURGIS."

Hundreds of thousands of people from all around the world meet every summer to make this dream a reality. A proud motorcycling tradition for 75 years, the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is the heart of the riding community. A place where people from all walks of life become family, instantly connected by their passion for riding and the souls of their machines.

Founder J.C. "Pappy" Hoel and his wife Pearl started the first Jackpine Gypsie race for only a few fans in 1938. Now half-a-million riders converge annually on the small town for an entire week. The Rally has gone through many changes over the years, and this history has become legendary heritage making the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally an international sensation and an integral part of the American experience.

"Sturgis is not just a place, it's a way of life. Woven together by people who live each day to the fullest. Those who dare to dream, discover, and explore the bounds of freedom."

This year marks the 75th Anniversary of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. An estimated 1,000,000+ riders will be making the journey this summer to the Black Hills of South Dakota for this anniversary rally celebration. If ever there was a time to make an epic documentary about this great motorcycle gathering, it is now!

We invite you to be part of this once-in-a-lifetime event. Please contribute to our Kickstarter campaign! There's a great assortment of limited edition I AM STURGIS memorabilia, including a copy of the finished movie. You can even have your name permanently memorialized for generations to see in the credits of the movie!
