Broken Spoke Campground Lights It Up In ‘09 and Sets its Sights on the 70th
Coming off the heels of an exciting and successful 2009 Sturgis Rally, The Broken Spoke Saloon & Campground is looking forward to the 70th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally with competitive rates, (especially for early-bookers) and even more improvements to the impressive 600-acre property.
Close to 3,000 campers called the Broken Spoke Saloon & Campground on 79 North their home for the 69th annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, and as usual the Broken Spoke did not disappoint with free concerts all week – including incredible shows by Foghat and .38 Special – a huge, free pool & hot tubs with live entertainment and the finest of bar maids serving up cold ones all week. The cabins and RV spots were full and the general store was a busy meeting place for hot coffee, supplies and free Wi-Fi. The Limpnickie Lot and the Wall of Death kept people entertained with trike races and daily shows – and the inaugural “Good ‘Ol Days Raceway” was a hit as anyone versed in the old school had expected. To honor those in our armed forces, the Broken Spoke had the Vietnam Veterans Moving Wall on display all week, with a patriotic opening and closing ceremony and a Rolling Thunder Freedom Ride on Wednesday. The week kicked off with another tribute – this time to industry greats Sugar Bear and Michael Lichter. This ride and the annual Cycle Source ride which took place on Tuesday both converged on a working ranch with the most gracious hosts you will find anywhere – and lots of fun and games organized by the family. And of course, while every one else was resting up after 10 days at the rally, owner Jay Allen went out to Bonneville to successfully sent another (8th!) Land Speed Record on his bike. The man never sleeps!
