What is the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally?
We’re big fans of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally here at A1AutoTransport, which shouldn’t be surprising if you have even the slightest interest in motorcycles. We had another great rally in 2014, and are already making plans to head back up in 2015. With some of the worst bikes in the country, awesome parties and musical guests every night, scenic rides across the Badlands, and great people, this is the motorcycle event of the year.
Date: August 3-9, 2015
Location: Sturgis, SD
Events: Most people come for the bikes and stay for the shows. Every night you’ll find a great musical performance by the top country and rock artists in the country. Check back frequently for a list of musical guests next year. In addition, to live shows, there is a ride for everyone in Sturgis. There is a long tradition of annual rides and usually a few that get added every year.
Competition: The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally also has its fair share of competition. If racing is your thing, check out the Short Track Race, Auto Cross Competition, Drag Racing, and Supermoto. Sturgis also features a Mustang Rodeo, Barrel Racing, and the Mustang Rally Show and Shine. Find out more about all of the competitions here.
Registration: Sturgis features a ton of side events, so registration is dependent on which parts of Sturgis you want to participate in. From rides and competitions to shows and concerts, you’ll need to purchase tickets separately for each event. You can find out more about Sturgis registration here.
Sponsors: Sturgis is sponsored by just about every big motorcycle, beverage, and apparel brand you can think of. Of course, the biggest sponsor of them all is Harley Davidson. Expect to be inundated with tons of free gear and giveaways. Check out this page for a full list of Sturgis 2015 sponsors.
