With just six weeks to go, bikers from around the country are gearing up for the 74th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
The 2014 Rally will be held August 4-10 in Sturgis, ND. The small town of 6,400 residents will be hosting several hundred thousand motorcycle enthusiasts in the annual celebration of all things associated with the biker lifestyle. The event, which started in 1938, has expanded over the decades to include not just competitions, but cruises, runs, bike shows, concerts, and the annual Mayor’s Ride as well as countless vendors from food trucks to mobile tattoo shops. Over 100 concerts are on the schedule as well as events like the AMSOIL Sturgis Nationals which will have legendary racers Marion Owens, Pete Hill, and Bonnie Truett as Grand Marshals.
If you can’t make it this year, start planning for 2015 which will be the 75th Anniversary Rally (August 3rd – 9th) and promises to be the biggest and baddest motorcycle rally of all time.
