Sturgis Road Show Recap

As expected, the event was totally awesome, to say the least.

The Sturgis Motorcycle Museum was a huge part of this event and featured bikes loaned to us by many friends of the museum including Kiwi Indian Motorcycle (Riverside, Ca.), Bob's Indian Sales (Etters, Pa.), Antique Automobile Club of America (Hershey, Pa.), and last but certainly not least, the American Motorcyclist Association's Hall of Fame Museum (Pickerington, Oh.).

Once again, our sincere thanks to the above mentioned friends of the museum for their participation in the great event. Without them, the task would have been impossible!

We are working on video of the event as we speak, so keep checking and our Sturgis Motorcycle Museum Facebook page for this great footage.
