As always, there is plenty to do at Sturgis when not riding, and today’s best activities are the Buffalo Chip. You have RATT playing their hardcore tunes tonight and you what is “the Chip” without the Ms. Buffalo Chip Bikini Contest. But, before you go “the Chip,” make sure to log some miles first. Take a ride through Spearfish Canyon and head into Custer State Park where you can ride alongside with the bison. You’ll be riding through Deadwood Historic District which is a perfect place to stop for breakfast or lunch. You can hit the casinos or take a history tour to hear about Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane, including visiting their grave site.
Along the way, make sure to stop and take photos at Bridal Veil Falls.
