78th Rally, Aug. 3rd-12th, Begins in Rally Begins in


~ All bikes are welcome! ~

Are you a first timer to the Sturgis® Motorcycle Rally© or just want to see things from a local's point of view?  Let us take the hassle out of learning the Black Hills on your own and join us for a "Ride with a Local"

Bring your bike....all are welcome and join our friendly guides who have been in the Black Hills for years and know their way around.  They will show you the sights and delights that the Black Hills of South Dakota have to offer.

This ride will take you to some of the best back roads and places to visit in the Black Hills.  Every year people come to Sturgis thinking they are going to see and do everything just to find out that they didn't plan well enough to accomplish that goal.  Leave the planning up to us and ride along with some of our most experienced riders in the area who will take you to see some of the most spectacular sights in the Black Hills.

Registration is $25 per person and limited to 25 bikes.  Itineraries and maps will be handed out the morning of the ride.  It will take approximately four to five hours with rest breaks and return to Sturgis for a catered lunch.

The ride was so popular in 2017 that we have added a third day. You can join us on Friday, August 3rd, Wednesday, August 8 or Friday, August 10th.

On these mornings, we will depart at 9:00 am (Location TBD); please arrive by 8:30 am to meet your ride leaders, to check-in and receive your ride instructions.
