Sturgis Buffalo Chip's Biker Belles Ride
And Scenes Around Sturgis 2012

Photos by Bart Mitchell

     The sheer amount of things to see and do around Sturgis is staggering and impossible for any one person to see/do them all, but our Roving Reporter Bart Mitchell gives it one helluva shot as his pictures fo the Biker Belles ride and scenes from Sturgis prove.
     The Biker Belles is an annual event celebrating the passion, diversity and spirit of women in motorcycling and 100% of Biker Belles rider contributions go to benefit two South Dakota Charities, Helping with Horsepower® and Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame. 
     Event sponsor, Harley-Davidson, engage  Biker Belles participants with multiple brand activities beginning at the event starting point in the historic town of Deadwood, South Dakota. Among on-site activities participants enjoyed were a symposium paneled by industry leading women after which riders participated in a group caravan on their bikes through the beautiful canyons of the Black Hills. The Biker Belles ride concluded at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip® with a reception, hors d'oeuvres, entertainment, live and silent auction along with a biker fashion show featuring Harley-Davidson® MotorClothes® apparel/riding gear.  Check out Bart's photos...
