75th Sturgis Motorcycle Rally

Posted by Kent Osborne on

I should have heeded the warnings and showed up early - earlier than I've ever rolled in to Sturgis proper - but the offer of breakfast in Rapid City at the Colonial House with friends was too good to pass up.  

At 9am a cruise down Main Street then up and down the side streets sealed the deal. 9:15a.m. on Monday morning and not a single, legal, parking spot to be had.  Luckily a local bank was offering reasonable rates on a short term deposit and off I went to famed One Eyed Jacks to say HI to a couple of aquantances and await my phone call from SDPB's Midday host Karl Gehrke.

Check out some selected photos from Sturgis... day 1.
