The new old Broken Spoke Saloon in Sturgis.

Here is a picture and a story about The New Broken Spoke Saloon in Sturgis South Dakota. I say it is new because is has only been around for 3 years or so. I also say it is new because I didn't know about it until this year and I found it completely by surprise. So let me tell you about the surprise, we all love surprises right.

This year we took a nice long motorcycle ride the first week in August and had a plan to tour way up north and drop into Sturgis from the North Western direction. We we driving the Highway across the middle bottom area of Montana, and approached Sturgis, through Belle Forche, and then looped east around Sturgis and down the bear Butte road into the Buffalo Chip. Well after a nice long days ride were could smell the cold beer and Sturgis Dirt and we were getting really close to the chip. Well then what to our wondering eyes did we see, a big new Broken Spoke Bar, about 3 miles north on the Bear Butte Road. What the?, When did they build that, we gotta stop flashed into our tired minds as we slowed and pulled in.

This is when the fun started, we were immediately sent down the row of vendors and towards the bar, Sweet we will get a front row parking spot, no wait, What, I was driving right through the bar, following a string of other bikers. How cool is this, Hit Sturgis and drive right into the Bar. Hell Ya, we had arrived. Once we settled into a row of bikes, I snapped this shot and headed for the Bar to see what else we could see. The trip was off to a great start and this leg of the journey was getting better all the time.

AH! I would never give up my party at the Buffalo Chip for somewhere else. I didnt see that they had any music or party for that matter in the big rusty red barn. Do they have a stage for national bands to play on?

We stopped for a beer before heading to the Buffalo Chip. They did have a smaller stage out in the field on the north side of the parking lot. I doubt they have big national bands, I don't really know.

I am with you the PARTY at the Chip is way too much fun to miss. I'll Drive 750 miles to see Kid Rock, but won't see him in SLC which is 12 mile drive.

See ya next year at the Chip!

Jay Allen has some really BIG plans for that property... like you, I had no idea what was going on out there on 600 acres, east of Sturgis. I have linked my "MJ" to a photo gallery posted of The Broken Spoke, Sturgis '08. Just click and see for yourself.
