STURGIS: All to Myself An almost spiritual trip through Sturgis and surroundings, without the crowds.

STURGIS: All to Myself An almost spiritual trip through Sturgis and surroundings, without the crowds.

I went to Sturgis, but no one was there. That's because I went in June. This wasn't by accident. A good half-dozen times I've attended the motorcycle rally that's colloquially called Sturgis. Each time I come away with an unfulfilled curiosity about western South Dakota. In the fog of 300,000 to...

From the September 2007 issue of Cycle World. A familiar, lightly accented voice in my head whispered "Be careful" as I laid out the plan. Pick up a bike in Denver for a week-long trip to San Francisco. With my mother. In my 39th year on this fine planet, it was time to kick back and spend more... 

While it's difficult to say which is the top rally in the popular consciousness of American motorcycling, both Daytona Bike Week and Sturgis feature prominently in biker mythology. If you break down both events into their most basic components, they look something like this: Bikers arrive from... 

Allstate has sponsored a custom bike giveaway for the past four years. Each year a new custom bike is built by a legendary custom builder (Arlen Ness created the 2013 and 2012 bikes), and riders enter a sweepstakes for the chance to win the bike. For 2014, Rick Fairless of Dallas Strokers fame... 

"When life itself appears lunatic, who knows where madness lies? Perhaps to be too practical is madness. To surrender dreams—this may be madness. Too much sanity may be madness—and maddest of all: to see life as it is, and not as it should be!" —Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, in Don Quixote Do... 

When my MO superiors asked me to do something the opposite of Sturgis, I offered to take my son fishing up in the eastern Sierra of California, a place famous for its trout streams and lakes. I was half kidding really, but they bit. (Get it?) We'd rather stay on the couch or camp out with 10,000... 

Whenever former staffer, and now MO contributor and guest columnist, Gabe Ets-Hokin, talks about bromances, as he did in his recent Skidmarks column, further investigation is needed. In his column, Gabe talks about his first time meeting Lee Parks, forming an instant bond with the riding skills... 

Much of what one sees at Sturgis Bike Week falls in the "OMG, I wish I hadn't seen that!" category. But it's not just swinging boobs, lumpy bums and sunburned beer bellies that hog up the scene in South Dakota. The show-off bikes rolling around the High Plains can also be unsightly. Thirty-inch...
