Harley launches 75th Sturgis via Rally Point Venue Grand Opening

When the Harley-Davidson Motor Company gets involved with something, they usually go all in. Such was the case with Harley partnering with the City of Sturgis for 75 years as the city's Official Motorcycle of Sturgis Bike Week. Creating a permanent biker play-place in town. Harley-Davidson convoyed bricks from its home in Milwaukee to give the new joint some legitimacy, and now it's one of the new big venues in town, and a must visit.

"Sturgis is a mecca for riders around the world," said Bill Davidson, great grandson of Harley-Davidson founder William A. Davidson and vice president of the Harley-Davidson Museum. "The Harley-Davidson Rally Point establishes a new site in downtown Sturgis for people to gather year-round. The renaming of 2nd Street to Harley-Davidson Way honors the legacy of our company's founders along with all the extraordinary men and women who ride our motorcycles."

Building on the 75-year agreement that makes Harley-Davidson the rally's official motorcycle, The Rally Point (at the corner of Main Street and Harley-Davidson Way) will include a stage for events, concerts, and weddings. An elevated area for riders to take pictures on their motorcycles with the iconic Sturgis sign as the backdrop is also part of the plan. Harley-Davidson fans across the country suggested dozens of names for the new main street presence. The Rally Point (an enduring term for a ride starting meeting place) rose to the top.

The Harley-Davidson Rally Point in Sturgis will host a bunch of different activities during Sturgis and will definitely aid in keeping people entertained and informed of not only H-D happenings, but cool Sturgis-centric festivities throughout Bike Week.
