SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — Businesses across South Dakota are preparing for bikers after the Sturgis City Council voted 8-1 to hold the 80th annual rally this summer. The event brings plenty of business to the Black Hills area, but also to the rest of South Dakota, as visitors from across the country travel through the state.

The summer months mean more motorcycles on the road and more business for J&L Harley Davidson.

“Being in the crossroads of Interstate 29 and Interstate 90, we see a ton of tourists throughout the summer. you know, July and August we have extended hours to help accommodate all those people riding through,” J&L Harley Davidson Co-Owner Jimmy Entenman said.

The Vagos Motorcycle Club has built a reputation for money laundering, trafficking weapons, and just straight-up violence.

Nearly half a million people attended last year’s Sturgis rally. That increased traffic is important for motorcycle shops across the state.

  1. Notice to anyone who plans to attend the 80th Annual Sturgis Rally this year:
    The founders of the Rally, The Jackpine Gypsies, are fighting to save their land from the City of Sturgis whose City Council are trying to “Annex” the land into Sturgis’ City limits, along with some other properties nearby. The Jackpine Gypsies have been given notice by the City that once their land is annexed, their activities will be curtailed.
    I’ve seen this move before. It’s a land grab. Once they annex it, then they use some bullshit excuse to exercise Eminent Domain and just take the land that’s been those people’s for more than 80 years and give them pennies for it and kick them out.
    It’s completely wrong and more than fucked up.
    So, anyone who goes to Sturgis this year… all they give a fuck about is taking your money. That place would be a ghost town without the Rally. The City of Sturgis makes 95% of their income from the Rally.
    How much do the Jackpine Gypsies get? A good time. A few bucks.
    Don’t go to Sturgis and be supportive of this situation.
    Anyone who thinks it’s okay is an absolute asshole with no fucking integrity at all.
    Or is showing off the most important part of your pitiful life.
    You go… you’re an embarrassment and a gigantic piece of shit.
    FUCK YOU.
    I definitely will not be a part of this shit.

  2. DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT GOING!

    THE CITY OF STURGIS IS TRYING TO PULL OFF A LAND GRAB OF THE PROPERTY OWNED BY THE JACKPINE GYPSIES WHO FOUNDED THE RALLY 80 YEARS AGO!
    DON’T BE COMPLICIT TO THIS THEFT.
    DON’T BE ONE OF THOSE “IT’S ALL ABOUT ME” AND “ISN’T MY BIKE BEAUTIFUL” OR EVEN WORSE “ISN’T MY OLD MAN/OLD LADY HOT?”
    YOU PATHETIC MOTHERFUCKERS.
    GET A LIFE.

    THIS YEAR IS GOING TO SHOW HAS RESPECT, INTEGRITY, GIVES A FUCK ABOUT PEOPLE LIKE THE JACKPINE GYPSIES MORE THAN THE CITY OF STURGIS WHO ARE ONLY INTERESTED IN THE MONEY WE ALL BRING IN. FACT: IT’S ABOUT 95% OF THE CITY’S INCOME. AND NONE OF IT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED BUT FOR THE JACKPINE GYPSIES. AND STURGIS HAS ATTORNEYS UP THE ASS WORKING ON A TWO PROCESS PLAN TO GET THEM OUT SO THE CITY WILL NOT ONLY HAVE THEIR LAND, WHICH THEY’VE OWNED MORE THAN 80 YEARS AS WELL AS FOUNDED THE RALLY, AND THE JACKPINE GYPSIES WILL BE PUT OUT ON THE STREET.
    ONCE AGAIN… AFTER MORE THAN 80 YEARS OF OWNING THAT LAND.
    AND AGAIN, THE CITY OF STURGIS GIVES ZERO FUCKS ABOUT US. THEY ONLY WANT OUR MONEY. ALSO, UNLESS YOU’RE COMPLETELY BLIND AND STUPID, EVERY YEAR BRINGS NEW RULES AND RESTRICTIONS TO LIMIT WHAT WE DO AND WHERE WE GO, WHAT TIME YOU CAN WIPE YOUR ASS AND HOW MANY SHEETS OF TP YOU CAN USE.
    TOO RESTRICTIVE FOR MY SENSIBILITIES. BUT THEN, I DO WHAT I DO, WHEN & WHERE I WANT TO. DON’T EVEN WASTE TIME ASKING IF IT BOTHERS OR UPSETS ANYONE, ESPECIALLY IF IT BOTHERS ME THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO DON’T LIKE ME OR WHAT & HOW I DO THINGS.
    WHY ON EARTH WOULD I GIVE A FUCK WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK?
    MY LIFE. MY CHOICES. MY CONSEQUENCES TO DEAL WITH. I’M AN ADULT, NOT AN INFANT. INDEPENDENT AS HELL. BUT I NEVER LOSE MY DIGNITY OR INTEGRITY. AND I’M HONEST TO A FAULT. THAT ONE PARTICULARLY IRRITATES A LOT OF PEOPLE. WELL, IF YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH, RUN HOME TO MOMMY AND CRAWL BACK INTO YOUR CRIB YOU WEAK ASS LITTLE BABY. I ALSO HATE LIARS & THIEVES.
    GIVEN THOSE QUALITIES AND THAT I DETEST BEAUREAUCRATIC BULLSHIT AND THIEVERY OF PEOPLE’S LONG HELD LAND AND PROPERTIES, I WOULDN’T BE CAUGHT DEAD IN OR ANYWHERE CLOSE TO STURGIS UNTIL THOSE DICKHEADS AT THE CITY END THE “ANNEXATION” PROCESS FOR GOOD.
    GREEDY MOTHERFUCKERS.
    IT’S ALL UP TO US WHETHER OR NOT WE SIDE WITH THE JACKPINE GYPSIES, OR THE DICKLESS WONDERS FROM THE CITY OF STURGIS WHO ARE OBVIOUSLY PULLING A LAND GRAB.
    ( A.K.A. RIPPING OFF THE LESS POWERFUL SO THE GREEDY OLD FUCKERS AT THE CITY CAN GET EVERY FUCKING PENNY.)

    SHOW SOME REAL INTEGRITY.
    STAND UP WITH AND FOR THE JACKPINE GYPSIES.
    CALL, EMAIL, WHATEVER, TO THE CITY OF STURGIS AND EXPRESS YOUR DISGUST. TELL THEM YOU AND OTHERS ARE BOYCOTTING THIS YEAR AND EVERY YEAR UNLESS THIS ANNEXATION IS FOREVER HALTED.
    GROW A SPINE.
    YOU GUYS ALWAYS CLAIM TO HAVE BALLS… WELL…
    I HAVE BALLS TOO.
    THEY JUST HAPPEN TO BE ON MY CHEST, AND I GUARANTEE THEY’RE MUCH BIGGER THAN YOURS.
    NOBODY I KNOW IS GOING TO STURGIS OR EVEN THE FUCKING STATE IT’S IN.
    THERE ARE A LOT OF MUCH BETTER PLACES AND PEOPLE TO BE WITH ON A RUN THIS YEAR.
    I WOULD FAR PREFER HANGING WITH MY RED AND WHITE FAMILY. MAYBE WE CAN PULL OFF A SPONTANEOUS RUN SOMEPLACE BEFORE EVERYONE GETS WIND OF IT.
    USED TO BE ABLE TO DO THAT HERE AND THERE WITH SMALL GROUPS EVENTUALLY MEETING UP AT THE DESTINATION WITHOUT COPS NOTICING MUCH.
    UNFORTUNATELY, IT SEEMS LIKE THERE HAVE BEEN TOO MANY MEMBERS PATCHED WHO REALLY DON’T UNDERSTAND THE CORE VALUES.
    IF I EVER HEARD ANYONE TALKING ABOUT ANYTHING THEY SHOULDN’T BE, I WAS INSTANTLY PASSING THAT INFO TO A FEW SPECIFIC MEMBERS. IT WAS THEIR BUSINESS TO DEAL WITH THE ISSUE, AND THAT IDIOTS PATCH WAS RIPPED FOR GOOD REASONS. AND I SINCERELY HOPE NO ONE FROM HA TURNS UP IN STURGIS. THAT WOULD BE INCREDIBLY DISAPPOINTING.
    I’D HATE TO FEEL BETRAYED BY FAMILY.
    I HAVE NEVER BEGGED FOR ANYTHING IN MY LIFE AND I AM NOT STARTING NOW.
    I AM SIMPLY ASKING FOR ALL OF YOU TO DO THE RIGHT THING BY THESE PEOPLE.
    BOYCOTT STURGIS.
