Legends Team

Thank you to our organizers for their time, talents and dedication. Without you, the Legends Ride would not be the premier charity-celebrity event in motorcycling!

Sturgis Buffalo Chip®

The Legendary Buffalo Chip developed the Legends Ride in 2008 to benefit worthy local charities. As the rally’s premier campground and concert venue, the Sturgis Buffalo Chip has earned its name, The Best Party Anywhere®.

Each year the nation’s top headliners and racing athletes put on an incredible show in front of hundreds of thousands of patrons at the Buffalo Chip. The 600-acre campground and entertainment venue hosts the rally’s premier nine-day concert and race series, along with immersive experiences, modern camping facilities, diverse retail and food vendors, and top-of-the-line amenities.

The jam-packed event schedule combined with its picturesque locale make the Legendary Buffalo Chip the perfect place to call home base during the Sturgis rally. For more information on camping and concerts at the Legendary Buffalo Chip visit BuffaloChip.com or call call (605) 347-9000!

Historic Deadwood

Just up the canyon from Sturgis, Historic Deadwood offers visitors a chance to walk in the footsteps of Wild West legends. And getting here is the beginning of the excitement.

Highway 14A to Boulder Canyon takes riders from Sturgis into the Black Hills through a safe and scenic route before arriving in the Deadwood gulch. Cobblestone streets, period lighting and free Rally week bike parking on Deadwood’s famed Main Street await riders.

Once here, gambling halls, cigar and retail shops, museums and living history exhibits, bars and restaurants and much more entertain visitors, while more than 1,500 hotel rooms offer lodging – from major chains to properties still standing from the late 1800s. From slot machines and steakhouses to the souvenir shops and 5-star accommodations, Deadwood offers something for everyone.

Walk in the footsteps of legends like Wild Bill Hickok, Seth Bullock and Calamity Jane – and discovery your inner outlaw in Historic Deadwood.

Deadwood Tobacco Company 

Descending into the sublevel hide-a-way of the Deadwood Tobacco Company is like stepping back to a particularly festive nightspot in Deadwood in the 1870s. This stone-lined, rough-beamed, low-lit setting is dominated by one of the largest cigar humidors in Western South Dakota and a nostalgic bar that serves a wide variety of imported and domestic beers.

Local owner Vaughn Boyd is a dedicated tobacconist and biker who makes sure that both cigar aficionados and Sturgis rally goers alike have a great place to hear live blues music, enjoy a smooth smoke and plenty of good times all in one place.

Deadwood Tobacco Company is proud to be a Legends Ride partner. For more information on Deadwood Tobacco Company contact (605) 722-1510 or visit www.deadwoodtobacco.com.
