A Must for Motorcycle Fans, Great Time Aug 03, 2009
I've gone to Sturgis to enjoy the rally for the past four years. Very easy trip for me, as I only live 20 minutes from the destination.

Around 400,000 people come from all over the world for the annual celebration, making Sturgis the biggest city in South Dakota for the week long event during the first week in August.

There are all kinds of vendors: Tattoo artist, bike supplies, sunglasses, clothes,leather etc. etc. There's also plenty of food, even alligator.

I'm no motorcycle expert, but the riding in the area is amazing. The Black Hills are filled with all kinds of beauty: Winding Mountain road, Needles Highway, Custer State Park, Mount Rushmore, canyons, streams lakes, national forest, Badlands National Park and more.

My two favorite parts: The great concerts and entertainment(Toby Keith, Aerosmith, Buckcherry, Saving Abel, Rob Zombie, the list goes on and changes ever year) and checking out the custom bikes. The paint jobs and designs are amazing.

The area tends to get congested with traffic and its easy to spend more money than what you've originally planned. But the trip is worth it.

Every Harley rider wants to go up there in his or her life time.

In 2002 I went there and had once-in-a-life-time experience.

Since then, every year I go to the U.S. and have had another touring experiences. I'll show you mine, please let me know where to go next. I hope to meet you somewhere on the road.
