In 2015, over one million bikers descend on the small town of Sturgis, South Dakota for the 75th anniversary of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally – one of the largest events for motorcycle enthusiasts in the USA. For one week each August, this town...more

I am not sure this will answer you question, but I will offer that I think you're bad-ass regardless! Okay, to your question. As you probably know, the Sturgis demographic in general is heavily white male. I've been a dozen or so times, and my observation has been that females are either their with a partner or are working at the rally. My purpose is not to pursuade you not to go, just letting you know what you're in for. I have seen small groups of women there who generally appear to be local teens out on the town, so to speak. It is a largely white crowd though I've also seen a number of African American riders too. Here comes the potentially naieve white guy comment...to me, the mainstream crowds in the mainstream venues will not give you a problem. However, there are likely places that would. Just my opinion, I don't think you would find yourself in such places accidentally. The thing about Sturgis, there are so many people at the varous places you would go, that it is unlikely that anyone would even know you're alone. While there, regardless of your skin's color, I would not mention that you're flying solo. Have a blast and ride safe!!

You can also google "Sturgis 2019 Concerts" If you see a concert you want to go to you may want to go ahead and buy tickets in advance. My wife and I already bought tickets to see Styx and Collective Soul at the Buffalo chip. Others in our group may go to Toby Kieth at the chip also. I think that Mt. Rushmore, Needles Hwy, Thunder mountain, and custer are a must do. You can do all of them in a full day. Also Devils tower is one of the most awe inspiring things I have ever seen and is also a must do. I hope this all helps.
