Every summer, more than 400,000 bikers gather in South Dakota for the Sturgis Rally, a mecca for motorcyclists. As part of New Orleans' Bike Week, the owners of Sturgis' notorious Broken Spoke Saloon recreate their bar's raucous atmosphere at the Sugar Mill for five days of trick riding, music and entertainment. Jay Lightning and his posse will perform riding stunts on vintage Indian and Harley Davidson bikes. Bike Week also includes group rides, parties and a motorcycle show at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, showcasing customized choppers and bobbers built by top industry designers. Tattooed bikers Jill Kill Thrill and Tyler Fyre will swallow swords, eat fire, handle snakes and perform other vaudeville acts in the Lucky Daredevils Thrill Show on Thursday and Friday.
