We had another amazing week at Sturgis this year. From the music to the rides, to the awesome parties, Sturgis continues to be my favorite motorcycle event. But, the Sturgis event doesn't end after the official rally. Here are some of the top events that happen after the Sturgis lights have dimmed.
Sturgis Mustang Rally
One of the best features of Sturgis 2013 was the guidebook. Without it, I would never have found the Mustang Barrel Racing event which features the best muscle cars from all over the U.S. The racing was hosted at Lynn’s Dakotamart, just a few minutes from the heart of Sturgis. If you’re lucky enough to stay in Sturgis past the official event, don’t miss the Sturgis Mustang Rally.
Steinley Cup Microbrew Competition
Another great event is the Steinley Cup Microbrew Competition. Hosted in nearby Saratoga, Wyoming, this competition features the best beers from all over the Great Plains. Looking for a nice relaxing way to end your Sturgis trip? Stick around for some good suds and even better company.
“I Survived the Rally” Community Picnic
For many of the Sturgis locals, the Sturgis Rally is both the highlight of the year, but also the most stressful. Much of their yearly revenue comes from the event, so it’s important that they invest a lot of resources in the week-long rally. Whether their fortunes are good or bad, surviving the rally is half the battle. That’s why once Sturgis is complete, they all get together for a community barbecue. If you’re still in town once the curtain has closed on this amazing event, you might want to head on over to the barbecue. If you didn’t realize it already, the Sturgis people are some of the best in the country.
Sturgis 2014 is less than 12 months away! Are you going to make the trip next year? Let us know if you are, and as always, make sure you ship your car or motorcycle to the event!
