The 2019 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in the Black Hills of South Dakota was one for the record books. Tens of thousands of motorcycle riders from around the world converged on the Sturgis Buffalo motorcycle and music festival for two weeks of the Best Party Anywhere. There were huge concerts with some of the biggest and best names in music. Racers of all kinds brought their speed machines to take home the checkered flag. Babes, bikes, beers and awesome times were had by all. A motorcycle rally isn't just about the party though. It is a reunion of people gathered together as one big family to celebrate freedom, camaraderie and good times. Check out some of the highlights from this year at Sturgis where the heart of the rally beats the loudest, the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. The Sturgis Buffalo Chip motorcycle and music festival is widely known among bikers and music fanatics as the Best Party Anywhere™.

With a week of almost stellar weather, there was really no interruption for the mega concerts, shows, or contests. Days were warm & sunny, evenings breezy and nice. Bands such as STYX, Dee Snyder, Keith Urban, Toby Keith, Snoop Dog, and more really treated the fans to what they came to the Chip for. Great riding all day, incredible music all night.
Below we have a shot from Bikini Beach. The Chips internal water hole with rope swings, slides, chairs, obviously swimming, games, a full bar, food, and a band shell. Best thing is, you can party all day and be totally safe from the outside authorities regarding driving.
Going back to the concerts, check out these images. These aren’t rinky dink performances, these are huge national, historic groups that the Chip brings in year in and year out. The crowds are huge, fun, and there are great vendors all around the venue including zip lining, beer & liquor, lots of food choices, and more more more.
There were many special events this year. A few caught my camera lens that were special to me. The Navy Seals brought along a few of their bomb sniffing dogs, and even did a little zip lining with them. A soldier that had lost his right leg along with a few fingers was presented with a custom trike on stage, and the Legends Ride once again presented a huge check to the Black Hills Special Olympics.
