Twist the throttle up to 80 MPH on South Dakota I-90

If you’ve ever traveled on I-90 or I-29 through South Dakota, you’ve likely noticed the 75 mph speed limit signs and the multitude of motorists who blow right by them at a minimum of 80 mph anyway. Maybe you’re one of those speed demons in the passing lane on your way to the Sturgis Rally, or maybe you’re watching license plates cruise on by you. Either way you’ll want to listen up, because an amendment to South Dakota Senate Bill 1 passed Tuesday, effectively changing the speed limit on the state’s two interstate highways.

Petition Accepted for Buffalo Chip Incorporation

There’s something about riding a motorcycle that’s fundamentally badass. That’s why if you don’t own one, you want one, and if you do, you always want another. And just when you think you’ve got the baddest bike around, you see one so cool that your mind simply won’t rest until you’re swinging your leg over the seat. This year that bike comes to us straight from Victory and Cory Ness of Arlen Ness Enterprises by way of the Buffalo Chip’s Sturgis Rider® Sweepstakes, which means that 2015’s coolest bike and its matching Epiphone guitar could actually be yours if you register to win them.
