Picture of The Chip when I was there in 2012.
Plenty of events that seem like a good, better yet, great time at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Start off with the famous, definitely infamous, David Allen Cole at Iron Horse Saloon. If not, travel over to ground zero of the Sturgis Motorcycle scene and party with Ted Nugent at Full Throttle Saloon. Get there before 6 p.m. and you don’t pay a cover charge. How cool is Full Throttle? Well, I met a guy with a pet duck in 2012! That cool!
Now, tonight, the Buffalo Chip is rocking as always from sun up to way past sun down. At 10:30 p.m. you have Cheap Trick but, before they hit the stage, you have the Buffalo Chip Beauty Pageant.
Finally, you are in Sturgis, so ride!
