Survey: Younger bikers making their way to the Rally
STURGIS, S.D. (KOTA) - As the 82nd Sturgis Rally ends, we’re getting a look at some of the demographic shifts of those who make their way to the Black Hills every year.
According to a survey of rallygoers from last year, Sturgis is seeing a massive increase in younger motorcyclists.
There are also more bikers who take their time during the week to explore the hills. More than 60% spend upward of six days outside of Sturgis.
One first-year Rally attendee says he falls into these categories, and looks forward to the Rally’s future.
”I don’t see it going anywhere, riding a motorcycle is just too fun, it’s such beautiful country out here, I don’t think it’s going anywhere,” said biker Jeffry Crum
The survey also found about half of the bikers who come to Sturgis set up camps.
