I really have no idea how many people attended Sturgis this year, and I probably won’t look into it any further, but as I moved about the Buffalo Chip, the Full Throttle, Sturgis, the Black Hills, and Deadwood, I saw a constant flow of bikers everywhere I went. I also spoke to many vendors and was told that sales were way up this year, which is great to hear. Teddy & Pam at the Rats Hole said their beer sales sky rocketed during the concerts this year, and with the weather being great almost every day, the party went on into the wee morning every day. Johnny Lange at Strip Club Choppers explained that he was close to running out of merchandise by rallies end. All in all, just great news for the industry. Below is a re-cap more or less of some photos, enjoy! Continue reading STURGIS RECAP 2018. GREAT TO SEE THE VISITORS ATTENDING IN HUGE NUMBERS.

LAS VEGAS: More than 30,000 bikers and motorcycle enthusiasts from nearly all 50 states and 12 other countries cruised into town for the 17th Annual Las Vegas BikeFest, October 5-8. The rally was four action-packed days filled with entertainment, contests, bike shows, MMA fights, Uncle Kracker performing live, and demo rides from Indian Motorcycles. With the addition of Rally West, located on 3rd and Fremont Street, attendees had even more options for shopping for the latest in motorcycle parts and accessories, apparel, and more.
“Our goal every year is to continue to keep the rally growing and the activities and entertainment “fresh”. With the new locations we chose for our poker runs, bringing the Tuff-N-Uff Amateur MMA fight, expanding our vendor area to Rally West, giving away $5,000 in shopping sprees and more bike shows, we feel we accomplished that”, states Mindi Cherry, Event Manager.
Music filled the rally all four days with over 30 live bands playing- everything from hard rock, blues, punk, country and more. Continue reading Las Vegas BikeFest® 2017 Rally Recap
