Gillette Harley Davidson seeing high volume of bikers headed to Sturgis


Clint Barber is nearing the home stretch of his 1,800 mile trek to Sturgis.

"This is my fourth day on the road heading to Sturgis," said Barber, a biker from Alberta, Canada.

He has made the long ride to Sturgis for 12 years now.

"My first time was great and then you get kind of hooked.  Made some awesome friends over the years, so it's an annual pilgrimage in the summer for me," said Barber.

Barber stopped by Deluxe Harley Davidson in Gillette before driving through the rest of Wyoming.

The owner, Chuck Deluxe, says many bikers will pull in between now and the end of the rally so his staff is focused on what they'll need to finish their ride.

Be prepared with things that people need on the road.  We also have a full service motor cycle shop.  We endeavor to have the expertise and the parts," said Deluxe.

There's a tent setup to draw in bikers from the highway and for barbecues and concerts during rally week.

"Next week's going to be crazy.  There's going to be people everywhere.  They'll be passing by, you can hear the sounds of engines running down the highway.  You can hear them pulling in here," said Deluxe.

The tent caught Barber's attention, who says he also stopped at a Harley dealership in Cody.

"This is just one of the last stops before Sturgis.  Pull in, possibly get a T-shirt and just check things out and see what's going on," said Barber.

Deluxe says he'll sell thousands of T-shirts before the rally wraps up.
