For 72 years bikers and motorcycle enthusiasts worldwide have been making the run to the Black Hills Classic in Sturgis, South Dakota and if you ever wanted to be a part of the biggest and oldest motorcycle rally in the entire world then pack your stuff, get your Harley ready for the run and get your ass in gear for the biggest motorcycle party you will ever be part of!
The 2012 Sturgis motorcycle rally is sure to be the biggest and best Sturgis ever with so much to see and do that I don’t think it is even possible for one person to see everything that the 2012 rally has to offer.
I don’t know about you, but I will be spending most of my time at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip because they have the best stage with the finest line up of top-notch musical entertainment, a campground that is walking distance to the stage, and all of the good food and drinks within the Chip itself, including the best coffee in the area.
The Sturgis Buffalo Chip musical line up for 2012 includes:
War * Candlebox * Zac Brown Band * Journey * Boston * Lynard Skynard * Slash * Sugarland * Aaron Lewis of Staind and more.
Tickets are on sale at Buffalochip.com but the smart move if you are planning to camp and party at the Chip is to get a full camping/concert package. You will save money, can see all the concerts and do your day trips to Mount Rushmore, Deadwood, etc from there. They have plenty of camping options from basic tents, RV camping with hookups to full-blown cabin rentals. They also have laundry facilities, shower facilities and the best coffee…did I already say that?
No matter what your plans for Sturgis 2012 will be, if you are planning to be a part of this years rally then you had better make your plans now, lodging will book up fast and unless you are willing to sleep standing up now is the time to make reservations. If you are planning to make the run with friends then you may want to consider renting a house. There are plenty of affordable deals and if you are looking to save as much money as possible then you should stay outside of the city of Sturgis.
During the 2010 Sturgis Rally I got a deal at the Alex Johnson Hotel in Rapid City. The only downside to staying outside of Sturgis is making the drive into town, and if you are staying anywhere other than in the Buffalo Chip Campground then you will have to contend with the heavy traffic on Lazelle and Main St. to get to the Buffalo Chip and just about everything else in the city. So just stay at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip and save yourself a lot of headaches.
While in Sturgis make sure you don’t miss out on ‘the ride’ to be a part of. The Legends Ride 2012 takes place on Monday, August 6th 2012. The ride starts in beautiful Deadwood and makes it way to the Sturgis Buffalo Chip! Great ride, fantastic time, a ride you don’t want to miss.
See you there!
