J.C. “Pappy” Hoel hosted a dirt track race called the "Black Hills Classic" which consisted of a single race with nine participants and a small audience. This race set a course in Sturgis history.
Today, the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally has evolved into South Dakota’s largest tourism event and the world’s largest motorcycle rally. Pappy formed the “Jackpine Gypsies” in Sturgis in 1936 and he was inducted into the AMA Hall of Fame in 1998.

The Peace*Love*Happiness Charity Motorcycle Ride was conceived in 2002 while two bikers were riding through the Texas Hill Country.
During a pit-stop at Poodies Hill Top, John Paul Dejoria, "Captain of Industry" and "Steward of the Planet", along with his long time friend and riding buddy, Gary Spellman, decided to take a stand after hearing how horribly an Austin Police Officer was being criticized for risking his life to save another.
That day, the Peace*Love*Happiness was born. They would go on to create an event that helped and supported the families of fallen peace officers and any and all abused and neglected children. Since then, the event has gone on to support not only the 100 Club of Central Texas but global causes as well, such as The Water Keepers Alliance. Unshared success is failure...
This year the Peace*Love*Happiness* rides joins the Biker Belles Tuesday Morning Ride
