Be Careful When Traveling To and From the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally – UPDATED

One of the most overlooked and important aspects of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is the trip to and from the event.

Three members of the Post 141 Glenwood American Legion Riders organization were killed in a motorcycle accident on I-29 near Little Sioux, Iowa on their return home from Sturgis this week.

Dennis Chaney, Steve Benscoter and Dale Aspedon, all from Iowa, were part of a group riding home from this year’s event. Another member of their group, Jay Bock from Nebraska, was also killed in the accident. The entire J&P Cycles organization sends our heart felt thoughts and prayers to the families and friends that were left behind from this unfortunate tragedy.

Just one short year after the tragic death of motorcycle industry icon Bruce Rossmeyer, we’re reminded once again how important safety awareness is to the motorcycle community, and how precious life really is.

Please be safe on your return trip home from Sturgis, or wherever your travels take you today, tomorrow, and in to the future.

It is sad to hear about 4 riders in the last hour of their Sturgis trip are killed within 100 miles of their homes. What is even more is that this accident was caused by a drunk driver who tested almost three times over the limit of alcohol. The reported drunk driver was seen at a nearby quick shop buying more beer and was called in to the local authorities but the accident occurred before he could be caught. As good as bikers are with charities they should promote a no drinking and driving campaign. With the following of the biker crowd there is no doubt it would be a success. Keep riding and stay safe bikers.

Be careful out there as to many of us bikers getting killed. I Ride like everyone is out to kill me and don’t take anything or situation for granted.

Sad to hear! I don’t know the circumstancis, but let’s hope other riders learn from this
