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.
