First Look: 25 Pics Of Sturgis Motorcycle Rally 2012
The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is an American motorcycle rally held annually in Sturgis, South Dakota, usually the first full week of August. In recent years, the revitalization of motorcycling and new fans of the old rallies have led to increased attendance of classic rallies such as Sturgis. Attendance has been estimated at 514,951 in 2004, 525,250 in 2005, and 754,844 in 2000. Many of the new attendees of the Sturgis Rally are families, bringing their children and driving trailers and campers to the rally, riding their motorcycles the last few miles. This has prompted several of the attendees to start wearing patches and shirts saying "I Rode Mine to Sturgis" with the date instead of the traditional patch stating that the wearer attended the event in that year. This flaming skeleton on a motorcycle was just one of the awesome things on display at the 2012 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
