STURGIS, S.D. – The 83rd Sturgis Motorcycle Rally doesn’t officially start until Friday, but the first sponsored ride of the year was held today as Sturgis Police  Chief Geody Vandewater hosted the 2nd Annual Chief’s Ride.

In its second year, Vandewater hopes to build on the success of last year’s ride.
