Races & Competitions Sturgis

The folks over at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally have reached a historic landmark—this year marks the 75th anniversary of the biker pilgrimage in South Dakota. As most of you know, Sturgis is my absolute favorite event of the year, which is why I always write a blog about what to expect at the upcoming Rally. Below, you’ll find a list of the best parts of Sturgis 2015, including musical guests, top bars and restaurants, rides and cruises, races and competitions, parties, and more! Did I miss anything? We’ll keep updating this every few weeks to make sure you know exactly what’s goin’ down at Sturgis 2015!

Rides & Cruises

Sturgis isn’t all about the partying and boozing (plentiful as it may be). During the week, there are also some picturesque rides that will get you out in the country, exploring some of the most beautiful parts of this great nation. Here are a few ones to consider signing up for:

  • Mayor’s Ride: Ready to ride with royalty? Well, you’ll have to settle for the mayor of Sturgis, but he’s a lot more fun! This is my favorite ride every year, not just because of the beautiful landscapes through the Black Hills—all proceeds go to the Sturgis Volunteer Fire Department, which is a great organization.
  • Dakota Thunder Run: On August 4th, the Green Knights and Dakota Thunder Military Motorcycle Club will be leading a cruise up through Nemo, where food and refreshments will be waiting. The ride starts at the South Dakota Air and Space Museum, where attendees will have the opportunity to take a picture with a B-1B Lancer.
  • BozBros Benefit Ride: Brothers Ben and Eric Bostrom, former AMA National Champions and World Superbike competitors, are hosting their 2nd annual benefit ride, with all benefits going to the Sturgis Rally Charities Foundation. Like last year, the Bostrom Brothers are keeping the exact ride itinerary a secret. What we do know is that the ride will end at the Sturgis City Park, where free beer and burgers will be waiting. That sounds alright with me!

Concerts & Parties

Sturgis is basically one big party, and there are a few spots you can’t miss if you love closing down the bar:

  • EasyRiders Saloon: If you’re looking for great food, awesome music, and even better people, you have to come out to a concert at the EasyRiders Saloon. This year, they’ll be hosting FREE concerts by some old and new bands including Hell’s Belles, Jared Weeks, Buckcherry, and Kyle Gass Band.
  • Sturgis Buffalo Chip: Though EasyRiders has some great bands, nothing compares to the lineup that the Buffalo Chip hosts every year. This year, they’ll be hosting rock legends like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Def Leppard, Dee Snider, and Alice Cooper. If you’re looking for good music, this is the place to be.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
