Little Sturgis Bike Rally

July 26th, 2009 · 8 Comments · bromates

A little Sturgis bike rally started August 14, 1938 with a few race participants and fans. Celebrating it’s 69th Anniversary, “The” Sturgis Motorcycle Rally swelled to more than 750,000 party goers in 2000 and consistently brings in 400 to 500k on average.

Sturgis Motorcycle Rally

To say it’s the largest bike rally is an understatement. To say we (DTM and LB) are extremely excited to embark on our virgin ride to Sturgis is an extreme understatement.

Sturgis invokes a particular feeling the second it leaves your mouth. People (not just hardcore bikers) love to say it. People love to talk about it. Random people, not just bikers, will come out of the blue and ask “You going to Sturgis?” just because you’re on a motorcycle.


As of this morning, we are Sturgis bound. Our first few days will be traversing 1,200 miles of open highway from Yakima, WA to Sturgis, SD. We’re staying at the Broken Spoke Campground, which features and “enormous 5,000 sq. ft. swimming pool with jacuzzis, decks, bars, music, hot bartenders, pool-side contests, lounge chairs and umbrellas. It doesn’t get much better than that.”

Will our Harley adventures of years past pale in comparison?

Will it be our best road trip yet?

We don’t know, but we’re sure the hell gonna try.

    The Sturgis trip should be awesome – I’ve heard some crazy stories about Sturgis. Just make sure and be safe – seriously, there are some serious hard core biker dudes there.

    By the way, I think you guys could have done better than “Bromates” (sounds like a terrible CW sitcom). You should have gone with something like “Bad Ass Bros” or “Don’t F With the Dawson’s.”

    Have fun boys.

    I remember one of your postings from another Harley trip, “Learning to Breathe.” It reminds me of one of Candlebox’s songs – BREATHE ME IN. Although it is a song to his girlfriend I think of you both out on the road, Breathing it all in! If you have a chance to listen to it you’ll see what I’m talking about.

    @ Terri – Thanks sis, we’re completely looking forward to this. It’s already turning out to be a blast!

    @Sparks – The only biker dude I have to watch out for is DTM and he’s on my side… thank goodness. As for naming Bromates… it’s supposed to be cheesy. Besides, if you can’t laugh at yourself, who can you laugh at?

    @Starr – Love you too!

    @Kisner – I”ll bring back two double d’s for ya!

    Awesome! Another road trip from a couple of my favorite travel guys. Can’t wait to follow along.
