Riding into Sturgis and then driving all around the Black Hills puts a big workload on all motorcycles.
Preschool Choppers brings motorcycle mechanics in from all over the country to work on bikes that need repaired. They have been at the rally since 2007, and mechanics say there is nothing too common that motorcyclists have issues with, but they get a mix of repairs. They have done transmission jobs, wreck repair, and fixed tires and wheels so far this rally. All the mechanics work long days during the event, sometimes from 7 in the morning until midnight. That means they go with little sleep and poor nutrition, but they say it's all about making sure the riders get back to their home safely as the rally comes to a close.
