70th Sturgis Rally and Races This Year!

Though we are just starting out in 2010, the 70th annual occurrence of The famous Sturgis Rally and Races are right around the corner. Are you coming?

Though the 2009 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is just fading into our memory, it is time to start getting for the 70th Anniversary of this world famous event!
Thousands of bikers, motorcycle enthusiasts and people watchers from across the globe have made their plans to make the trek by motorcycle (the sacred way), truck (with bike trailer), car, boat, plane and train to be a part of the seventieth anniversary of the Black Hills biggest event.. The Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame is gearing up for a large crowd that have come another year and those who are making their pilgrimage for the first time.

The world famous museum has been building their world-class historic motorcycle exhibits and accepting nominees for the Hall of Fame. The Motorcycle Museum will have a big collection of official 2010 Sturgis Rally patches, pins and other memorabilia to make your trips memory better.

The Sturgis Motorcycle Museum officially opened in 2001, the museum was started as a way to preserve motorcycling history and culture,combining our rich past history with the current event. Throughout the rest of the year, you can support the museum and further this cause. You can sign up to reap the benefits of membership. Members receive exclusive motorcycle patches, free admission to the museum, Sturgis gift shop discounts, invitations to member’s only events, and more.

While being present at the 70th Sturgis Motorcycle Rally will make you a part of motorcycle history, support of the non-profit Sturgis Motorcycle Museum will help to ensure that heritage is preserved.

TruTV has had an eye full of Sturgis Rally fun and decided to make a show  featuring Micheal Ballards Full Throttle Saloon. This will be a One-Hour Series Premiering Tuesday, Nov. 10, at 10 p.m. (ET) TruTV Goes Behind the Scenes at Michael Ballard’s Biker bar The Full Throttle Saloon claiming the title of the worlds largest biker bar. http://www.trutv.com/index.html


The shows will detail the events and also the struggles of running this operation. It will detail the behind the scenes of running a operation that is 30 acres of tattoos, leather, alcohol, Harley Davidsons and the ladies and gentlemen that ride them.  The Full Throttles set up includes indoor and outdoor bar, a famous burn out pit, numerous stages with live music, tattoo parlor, wresting ring, stores, vendors, cabins for rent,  and parking for thousands of bikes.

What an operation! This is all planned for the two weeks of Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

I wish Micheal the best as he has always been a friend and helpful to us. Micheal has donated a booth to our non profit organization and helped us with fundraisers for the Rapid City Club for Boys for many years. It will be interesting to see the behind the scenes of the Full Throttle Saloon!08-17-07-031-rc-club-for-boys-boys-rags
