STURGIS 2022 WAS A BLAST! Every year, we get to meet more and more people and the rally just keeps getting better and better. After an incredible 8 days of riding, exploring, and shaking hands with America, our trip is coming to a close and it’s time to begin the 2 day, 1,400 mile ride home back to Southern California.

In this episode, we start out in Deadwood, South Dakota at Mount Moriah Cemetery to see some famous grave sites like those of “Wild Bill” Hickock and Calamity Jane and learn about the deep-rooted history of the area. We then part ways with the Thrashin’ crew and hit the road to make it as far as we can while the sun is still out.

Even though we had some interstate riding, we still filled the day with some scenic backroad 2Lanes and had a blast ripping through the Wyoming wind on our way to Utah, where we eventually landed in Heber City just before nightfall.

ABOUT MOUNT MORIAH CEMETERY
Mount Moriah Cemetery on Mount Moriah in Deadwood, Lawrence County, South Dakota is the burial place of Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane, Seth Bullock and other notable figures of the Wild West. By tradition, the American flag flies over the cemetery 24 hours a day, rather than merely from sunrise to sunset.

In the early years of Deadwood, there were two graveyards: The Ingelside Cemetery, which was part of the way up Mount Moriah and was filled quickly in the first few years it was open, and the Catholic Cemetery. Many prospectors, miners, settlers, prostitutes and children were buried within the Ingelside Cemetery, alongside Wild Bill Hickok and Preacher Smith.[2]

In the 1880s it was determined that the land where Ingelside Cemetery was located could be better used for housing. Most of the bodies there were moved up the mountain to Mount Moriah and re-interred. However, since many graves were unmarked or unknown some were not moved. Today it is not uncommon for people working in their garden or remodelling a basement or shed to find human bones as a leftover from the Ingelside Cemetery days.

Mount Moriah’s main attraction is Wild Bill’s gravesite. Calamity Jane and Potato Creek Johnny are buried next to him.

ABOUT STURGIS MOTORCYCLE RALLY
The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is a motorcycle rally held annually in Sturgis, South Dakota, and the surrounding Black Hills region of the United States. It began in 1938 by a group of Indian Motorcycle riders and was originally held for stunts and races.
The very first Sturgis motorcycle rally was held on August 14, 1938. The event was organized by the town’s motorcycle club called the Jackpine Gypsies who bought and developed large tracks, hill climbs and field areas where the rally would be held.
Today, the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally continues to reap the support and attendance of both participants and motorcycle fans all over the United States and in some parts of the world.
