Full Throttle Saloon Gearing up for 76th Rally

KOTA TV reports that the Full Throttle Saloon is rebuilding after a fire destroyed much of the bar in 2015.  The Full Throttle Saloon, also known as the world's largest biker bar, is open with tents constructed to serve beverages.  Michael Ballard, owner of the Full Throttle Saloon, is rebuilding a new bar near Pappy Hoel Campground.  The site is 6 miles north of Sturgis on Highway 79.
