Every summer, motorcyclists from all over the world descend upon Sturgis, South Dakota for the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. This year's event was no exception, but there was a wild card: the weather.
The start of the rally was hot and sunny, but as the week progressed, temperatures began to drop drastically. A cold front moved in from the west, bringing with it high winds and heavy rains. This led to some very difficult riding conditions for those attending the rally. The rain and wind made for a dangerous combination, with many riders struggling to stay upright on their bikes.
Despite the challenges posed by the weather, the rally was still a success. Attendees had the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Black Hills, and the wet roads kept the dust down, making for a much more pleasant ride. The camaraderie and sense of adventure that the rally brings helped to keep spirits high throughout the week.
At the end of the day, the weather can't stop the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Even in the face of adversity, attendees were able to make the best of the situation, and enjoy the unique experience that the rally provides. It's always a great time in Sturgis, and this year was no exception.
