'American Biker' Spends Some Minutes In Sturgis

ENVISION RADIO NETWORKS' American Biker Minute captured the weird weather and bizarre circumstances that struck this year's STURGIS Motorcycle Rally. On top of AEROSMITH singer STEVEN TYLER falling off the stage and BUCKCHERRY’s JOSH TODD coming down with bronchitis, ABM host JOSH TODD wrote about a freak hailstorm that hit STURGIS.
"Cops say they ran the sirens, trying to warn bikers, but it was already too late," he wrote. "Inside the BUFFALO CHIP campground alone, thousands of cars, motorcycles and RVs were decimated by hail which began as ice-cube sized, and ran on up into the major leagues of baseball proportion. Nearly every vehicle in and around Rte 34 on the hill outside of town, was damaged, some so badly they had to be towed. Inside the Chip, one of those bb-sized ice orbs smashed through a tent, hitting a biker in the head, leaving him unconscious. (That would be the meat wagon we heard screaming up the access road just after the storm passed.)"
