Sturgis Rally Continues to Adapt for Younger Bikers

Sturgis officials are noting that while there is a perception of the rally being attended by older adults, more and more younger people are coming as well. According to the Rapid City Journal, rally promoters see that both the rally and the motorcycle industry in general are finding ways to adapt to younger crowds and continue to find new ways to bring the youth movement into Sturgis. The future of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is dependent on these youth trends to continue in its existance.
