Sturgis Rally 2007: Rushmore Civic Center In Rapid City Hosts Harley-Davidson

Once again the Rushmore Civic Center in Rapid City hosts Harley-Davidson during the Sturgis rally. Just hop on I-90 and make your way to Exit 57, and you'll find yourself there. It all starts Saturday, August 4, 2007, and goes until August 11.

There'll be a special reception for H.O.G. members on August 4, and plenty of outdoor fun at the outdoor festival, ranging from music and vendors to stunt shows. While you're there, feel free to get all those bugs cleaned off your baby at the bike wash. You can also take a test ride on the Motor Company's newest models. Other displays will include the Acceleration Nation racing exhibit and Harley's traveling museum.

The big draw, though, is Harley's ride-in show, and that takes place on Thursday. All entries must be ridden to the show; no trailer queens allowed. Dozens of bikes will compete in 16 categories, ranging from Antique (1903-1987) to VRSC and Buell, with the full gamut in between.
