Sturgis Motorcycle Rally: What to know about masks, attendance, rules

One of the largest events since the beginning of the pandemic has begun in South Dakota: More than 250,000 people are expected at the iconic Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

That’s scaled down from previous years, where about half-a-million people have descended on the city of about 7,000 for an event that has developed a reputation as an anything-goes festival.

  1. I’ve been to the Sturgis rally many times. I’m not going this year as many I know aren’t for obvious reasons. But I’d be curious if at the end of next week there will be that many there. Sturgis is international. Many come from other countries. Those that I know are going will be practicing social distancing. The rally is spread out over a few cities and it’s rides are incredible. On a motorcycle one is already separate by 6 feet. The cities prepare for this every year however I’m sure this year will be different.

      1. Right LOL no weenies! Yes, a few fell out but the line-up is still pretty good and surprising to me. They must have a stage set up because I personally know a couple of the bands playing and don’t think they would play without taking precautions. In any case, it will be interesting to see the outcome. I see also you were on staff at the Easy Rider. I hit everyone since ’05 here in So. Cal. My bike was in at one of them as advertising for paint through Rock ‘n Roll Paints. I used to go to that show often just to take pics. Fun! So, do you ride?

  2. Hi.

    Thanks for the article. I think it’s shameful that they are holding Sturgis and I’m scared for all the Covid infections that can come back to communities. Unfortunately my Trump- loving brother is going to Sturgis Next week because he doesn’t believe The virus is serious. He certainly gets his news from someplace that I don’t!

    Hope you’re doing good. I enjoy your blogs and your kitties

    1. Your brother didn’t go to the ‘Aqua Center’ party on the 4th at Lake of the Ozarks too did he? Thanks to POTUS we now have sewing machines and Toyota’s converted to respirators so the Hospitals ICU’s can handle thousands more cases. 𝕃𝕖𝕥𝕤 𝔼𝕧𝕖𝕣𝕪𝕠𝕟𝕖 𝕔𝕒𝕥𝕔𝕙 𝕚𝕥 𝕒𝕟𝕕 𝕘𝕖𝕥 𝕚𝕥 𝕠𝕧𝕖𝕣 𝕨𝕚𝕥𝕙. There may never be a vaccine ❗️ When we were kids Mom took us visiting cousins with measles & chicken pox & mumps so we could get over it and not be infected at an older age. Go figure 😉
      I hate rolling the dice then having to say ‘oh shit I crapped’ 🎲🎲


  3. I have never been and have no desire. Not really into loud noise these days. Lost enough hearing capacity playing loud music in school. Plus, it’s one thing to endanger oneself as a piece I read about Harley-Davidison the company not appearing this year. But the idea that one can’t affect someone else is so sad. Too many stories now about people being careless then infecting family, some of whom have died. And now they regret their thoughtlessness. Too little too late. But for some this is all “fake news”.

    1. Went to a football game in the early 60’s The Minnesota Gophers were cool in Pasadena However have never gone to a 60K+ event ever since. Hated grocery shopping 40 yrs ago 𝕋𝕠𝕠𝕄𝕒𝕟𝕪 ℙ𝕖𝕠𝕡𝕝𝕖 at least they all wear masks now❗️


  4. A lot of the bikers ride through my town on their way to and from the Sturgis rally. As an immuno-suppressed person who does practice the recommendations, seeing all these maskless people congregating in the Black Hills is alarming. It was bad enough the POTUS had his little Mt. Rushmore maskless (mostly) campaign rally for the 4th, with many people from my area attending, maskless, of course, then returning to my town….
