The participants will go from historic Deadwood, S.D., through the Black Hills, and will end at the Legendary Buffalo Chip in Sturgis, where Aerosmith is due to give a live performance on August 5.

"The Black Hills have long been known as rider's paradise, and the Legends Ride takes it one step further.
