I recently had the opportunity to attend an event in Minneapolis called Motosota. The event had more of an old-school motorcycle event feel to it where it was a bunch of riders hanging out. The event had the 3 B's beer, bikes, and bands, which is a great way to host an event but what made this one really standout was the uniqueness of the 3 B's. The Beer was at a

Folks another Sturgis is in the books, the 77th rally was a blast. The numbers seemed to be up based on the crowds I saw and the early counts are sitting at around 376,000 for 2017 vs. 360,000 for 2016. The vendors I talked to all said that more people were spending money this year as compared to last year so I think that equals a pretty solid up tick.
