80 MPH on South Dakota I-90

Twist the throttle up to 80 MPH on South Dakota I-90

If you’ve ever traveled on I-90 or I-29 through South Dakota, you’ve likely noticed the 75 mph speed limit signs and the multitude of motorists who blow right by them at a minimum of 80 mph anyway. Maybe you’re one of those speed demons in the passing lane on your way to the Sturgis Rally, or maybe you’re watching license plates cruise on by you. Either way you’ll want to listen up, because an amendment to South Dakota Senate Bill 1 passed Tuesday, effectively changing the speed limit on the state’s two interstate highways.

When the new law takes effect on April 1, you’ll legally be able to travel at 80 mph. The bill passed also incorporates a one percent increase in the motor vehicle excise tax, a 20 percent increase in license plate fees, and an increased gas tax of 6 cents per gallon, which will go to improving roads and bridges.

So, all you lead foots don’t have to spend as much time watching your mirrors for the fuzz, and you Sunday drivers can twist the throttle a little farther…if you want to, that is.

Allstate Motorcycle Chopper Story National Motorcycle Museum, Anamosa, Iowa

Allstate Motorcycle Chopper Story 
presented by J&P Cycles Exhibit
Opening June 20 at 
National Motorcycle Museum, Anamosa, Iowa

The long history of choppers is a uniquely American story, akin to Rock 'n Roll in its cultural impact and global influence. The National Motorcycle Museum is assembling the first-ever exhibit comprehensively documenting the evolution of the American Custom Motorcycle; the cut-downs, bob-jobs, show bikes and choppers, from the late 1920s to the mid-'70s. Opening in June 2015, the Allstate Motorcycle Chopper Story presented by J&P Cycles exhibit will include only period-built bikes, plus related artwork, memorabilia, film posters and photos, plus contemporary artwork commissioned for the show.

The National Motorcycle Museum has located over 20 great but typical period custom motorcycles for the show. "We put the word out to try and locate period builds, and the results have been good. Many original paint machines, some pretty outrageous, built in the 60's and 70's, were saved "as-is" and are still out there. They will be part of the show," says Paul d'Orleans, guest curator for the exhibit.

Americans started 'chopping' bikes long before 'Easy Rider.' It all began in the late 1920s with the 'Cut-Down', based on the Harley JD or JDH, with shortened and lowered frames.  Cut-Downs were hot, high-performance bikes and are very rare today. Next came the 'Bob-Job', stripped-down Harleys and Indians and even British imports from the 1930s, built to look like
