The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is happening in South Dakota and it looks like the clothes are optional, along with the masks. The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is an annual event held in Sturgis, South Dakota every August. The event was started back in 1938 and is a time when hundreds of thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts congregate on the small town with a year-round population of only 7,000.

The event was originally held by Indian Motorcycles and was held for races and stunt riding. The event has now turned into a full-blown festival, filled with concerts, merchandise, fair-style food, and plenty of gorgeous ladies. I've known plenty of people who have attended Sturgis in the past and have said it is an event you have to experience at least once in your life. To be honest, I'd be interested in attending for the concerts alone.

This year's event boasted live performances by Fozzy, Fire From The Gods, Twisted Sister, Lit, Bone Thugs N Harmony, Stitched Up Heart, and a lot more. Plus, who wouldn't want to see Smashmouth? Okay, maybe I like eccentric concert lineups so this event speaks to me.

Unfortunately, this year we are still battling the coronavirus all over the nation so even though the cases in South Dakota have been relatively low, that may not be the case after the event. Even so, plenty of riders packed their bikes and headed out to Sturgis for their usual week filled with bonding and debauchery.

At least I assume from some of these photos. We have a man on the ground at Sturgis who has been sending us daily photo updates and it looks the pandemic hasn't stopped many of the people from partying. Check out the photos below and imagine you're right there in the middle of all the action.

Well, maybe not the spitting contest, unless you're into that sort of thing.
