Okoboji Indian Motorcycle, located at 4105 Hwy 71 S in Spirit Lake, is hosting a “Ride to Sturgis” event to promote Indian Motorcycles and the Lakes area on August 4, from 9 am to 6 pm.
Tony Petersen, general manager of Okoboji Indian Motorcycle explains: “We wanted to do something to promote the fact that Indian Motorcycles are built right here in Spirit Lake. What a perfect way to springboard off of one of the biggest biker events in the country – Sturgis. The lakes area has a lot to offer bikers between the Indian Motorcycle factory, the natural tourism of the area and we are right on the way to Sturgis, SD.”
Okoboji Indian Motorcycle will be collaborating with the Barn Of Okoboji to make it a full day of fun and entertainment. Tony commented: “The Barn and us working together is a perfect mix to host an event like this. They are right in our backyard and we have the motorcycles and factory connection and the Barn has the entertainment space and facility to make it a true Bikes, Beer and Band event. The event and band are open to the public.”
The event starts at 9 am and goes unit 6 pm at Okoboji Indian Motorcycle then moves up the hill to the Barn for the band at 6 pm. Throughout the day the dealership will have Jack Daniels factory representatives there for “The Barrel Man” and Jack Daniels bottle engraving.
Peterson added that there will also be food trucks, great prize drawings, fun, games, a “Ride Around Boji” (modified poker run), event t-shirts, camaraderie and more.
