Ride On to the Longfellows Annual Motorcycle Gathering at Chopper Flats

“If it ain't long, it’s wrong.”

Get ready to rev those engines and hit the open road as the Longfellows, the legendary annual motorcycle gathering, returns to Chopper Flats near Sturgis, South Dakota. This thunderous event, a must for custom-bike enthusiasts, is slated to take place on Tuesday, Aug. 8, 2023, starting at 10 a.m. sharp.

Every year, the Longfellows ride in style, roaring into action on the Tuesday during the iconic Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in August. It’s a celebration of camaraderie, artistry and sheer love for the two-wheeled wonders that unite us all.

At Chopper Flats, located at 19484 Hwy 79, Vale, SD 57788, the Longfellows offer a unique opportunity for riders with custom bikes to gather, swap stories and share their passion with like-minded enthusiasts, industry legends and revered custom builders. There’s no entrance fee, and parking is free, so saddle up and join the event.

This year’s gathering promises to be bigger and better than ever. Longfellows is thrilled to announce the unveiling of its brand-new replacement building, designed to take your custom bike experience to the next level. On display, you’ll find two extraordinary exhibits: Rick Fairless and a breathtaking showcase of Sugar Bear’s captivating history. Witness never-before-seen historical photos, revealing the rich legacy of choppers that will ignite your imagination.

Fuel up with mouthwatering eats at the full outdoor kitchen, serving up delectable breakfast, lunch and dinner options for the hungry masses. And for those craving something cool, indulge in Longfellows’ famous “Shaved Ice” while savoring the view of the bikes roaring past.

On “Sturgis Tuesday,” Aug. 8, 2023, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Longfellows invite bikes of any length to join the roaring fun. Share the thrill of custom bikes, connect with icons, builders and fellow enthusiasts as we revel in the sights, sounds and spirit of freedom that only the open road can provide.
