Sturgis, SD, July 09, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Sturgis Bike Week got its start August 14, 1938. Back then it was called "The Black HIlls Classic" which consisted of a single race with 9 participants. J. Clarence "Pappy" Hoel purchased a percentage of Indian Motorcycles in the area in 1936 and that same year a local club was created called the Jackpine Gypsies. The club produced the racers of the first event and "Pappy" is considered the father of Sturgis Sturgis Bike Week which is now considered to be the 'Mecca' of all motorcycle rallies.
Sturgis Bike Week has become legendary in the motorcycle community and many infamous places have sprung up over the years including the legendary Buffalo Chip Campground. The 'Chip' is famous for its concerts which this year includes the performances of Kid Rock, Bob Dylan, ZZ Top, Motley Crue, The Scorpians, Buckcherry, Tesla, Ozzy Ozbourne and much more.
Other famous haunts in Sturgis, SD include The Full Throttle Saloon, One Eyed Jacks Saloon, The Knuckle Saloon and Broken Spoke Saloon. You can ride to Mount Rushmore, check out Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame, Black HIlls National Cemetary and so much more.
