Last Year Report 2018

It is quiet out here in Spearfish, most of the Sturgis Rally motorcycle’s have headed back home. I stayed out of trouble mostly. I can honestly say I am not one of the statistics listed below. I admit, driving around town and not seeing a motorcycle at every turn has me feeling a little sad. See you next year.


Law enforcement agencies are stressing common sense and situational awareness for drivers in an effort to keep injuries and fatalities to a minimum. In recent years, the most deadly rally was the 75th anniversary event in 2015, which drew a record 739,000 bikers and had 14 fatalities. In 2016, the South Dakota Highway Patrol reported a record-low three deaths. In 2017, the SDHP reported eight fatal crashes.
