Let’s face it…Most people don’t follow through with New Year’s resolutions. Truth be told, most folks give up before even getting started. But bikers like you aren’t “most people.” You stick to your guns to get what you want, and the goals you set are about living life to the fullest. But if you find yourself needing a little extra help, here are 10 ways you can make sure you keep your New Year’s resolutions with a little help from the Sturgis Buffalo Chip®.

1. Spend more time riding.


It’s the best way to release stress, clear your head, focus and relax. Plus, it’s one heck of a good time.

The Black Hills of South Dakota are home to some of the world’s most beautiful landscapes, and you can take in its most scenic stretches of highway by participating in the Buffalo Chip’s annual Legends Ride® and the Biker Belles® Ride Morning Ride™.

2. Eat healthier.
