22 People You Wish You Were Friends With

By Jeff Smith

Each year, all kinds of people make a pilgrimage to the Black Hills of South Dakota to experience the Sturgis Buffalo Chip®’s motorcycle and music festival. The majority of these folks are bikers, of course, but when you consider every aspect of the Chip experience, you realize bikers and biker babes are just the tip of the iceberg. Bands, bartenders, builders, dancers, daredevils, music lovers, mischief makers and some downright weirdos all converge at the Chip, making it the most concentrated collection of cool folks you’d be proud to call friends. Here are 22 of them you could have befriended at The Best Party Anywhere® in 2017.

For the love of all that’s holy– Help this poor girl find your camper, would you?!
This dude came to have a good time, with no ifs, ands or buts about it. Ok… maybe a few butts, and he is probably willing to share.
This guy knows what peak party performance looks like.
If you don’t want to hang with midget wrestling champion and human bowling ball, Short Sleeve Sampson, you might as well turn in your party pants forever.

These biker babes had an endless supply of Ozzy Osbourne’s wine. What more could you want?
