If you’ve ever been around motorcycles or bikers, you've probably heard of Sturgis; and if you’ve heard of Sturgis you may know it’s the largest gathering of motorcycle enthusiasts in the world. The rallies have put Sturgis, SD on the map. Since the yearly event is vital to the local economy Sturgis residents roll out the red carpet, and the bikers appreciate and respect the grand welcome.
Sturgis brings in motorcycle artists from around the world. Stunning graphics are painted on bikes and body ink on arms, backs or other designated skin. Enthusiasts bring antique motorcycles and custom built ones, and others with themes such as the complete Elvis bike. There are bikers for Jesus, bikers supporting our veterans’ Rolling Thunder Project, bikers representing their countries in native costume, and bikers wearing t-shirts offering truly original words of wisdom.
This book, shot in classic black and white documentary style, celebrates the men and women who rally together every year to immerse themselves in motorcycle culture, meet up with old friends and to enjoy a little uncensored Freedom Of Expression.
