Why We Ride To Party At Sturgis

Incredibly, in 81 years of the famous Black Hills Motorcycle Rally, there has never been an official Sturgis Rally Wrap Party. In 2021 that changes as Why We Ride, MOTOvational.org and the legendary Sturgis Buffalo Chip host the VIP Sturgis Rally Wrap Party benefitting Treasured Lives. The limited seat event is a way to say, “until we meet again” and is aimed at motorcycle industry VIPs, brand leaders and all those who cannot imagine life without two wheels. The event is slated for Friday, August 13th at 6:00 pm. Registration is available at www.SturgisRallyWrapParty.com.

5 Questions With Jake Gagne
