Dirty Dogs Roadhouse
Thanksgiving is about traditions and family and familiarity. When most, if not all, businesses are Closed on Thanksgiving Day and families are locked in the house with relatives that they see once or twice a year, about the only place one has to escape to is 7-eleven.
Rob is continuing the Dirty Dogs tradition by opening the bar @ 1pm and giving customers a safe place to escape to. Rob will provide the Turkey and just asks that customers bring a side dish.
The outside patio will be open with footballs games weather permitting and the Buffalo Bills play the Dallas Cowboys at 2:30 pm. So, come on down to Dirty Dog Thursday afternoon and gather with your riding family.
DIRTY DOGS CHRISTMAS SWAP MEET

So much work went into the first wave of renovations of a building that had been neglected by others for years. It would require more than repainting. Dirty Dogs had to have a certain biker flair but keep the same visual of the Susie’s we loved. The biker community didn’t disappoint and supported and packed Dirty Dogs from the moment that it opened.
When Mark and Rob ventured into the transformation of our beloved Susie’s bar, no-one could have imagined the Dirty Dogs Roadhouse that is 2 years in the making. Vintage riders longed to have a true biker bar back in Golden and a place to go where they were understood and welcomed.
Next came Mark and Rob’s vision to create an outdoor patio area that could accommodate the overwhelming number of riders that were coming in on the weekends. For months, customers would come just to watch Mark & Rob doing the improvements themselves and you could see the excitement each week as another intricate piece of wall or concrete was poured.
The 3rd wave was the outdoor stage area that would enable Mark & Rob to bring bigger entertainment and host multiple riding events simultaneously. The 4th wave was the upper parking lot to enable more riders and vehicles to safely park. And who could forget the yellow buses they bought to transport riders to/from the Freedom Fest at Jeffco fairgrounds.
Dirty Dogs will be hosting their 2nd Anniversary Birthday party on October 12th so SAVE THE DATE and Thank you Dirty Dogs for giving the biker community in Denver a place to call HOME!
Here in Denver as we drive on I-25 you can hear the roll of riders heading up to Sturgis for the 79th Rally and I for one am getting excited for Rally. Mark and Cari drove up a week ago to get everything ready. Dirty Dogs Sturgis will be OPEN and ready to welcome Colorado riders to their own LOCAL bar. A place where you recognize most of the faces there and are greeted by STAFF from HOME!
People don’t go to Sturgis for the food and I worry sometimes when I go to some of the food vendors cooking outside under those tents, but the food at Dirty Dogs is served hot/fresh and made to order and the menu has many of the traditional items that we all have grown to love.

Connected to your favorite Sturgis Bar: Dirty Dogs Roadhouse!
Located at Junction & Main – Directly across from Sturgis Harley-Davidson
I am not sure if summer has really come yet, last week there was 2 feet of snow in the mountains, and it appeared that our April showers were just hitting us in June. This has been a crazy spring and filled with its share of weather interruptions.
As many of us begin to plan our road trips and vacations, it hit me that Sturgis was just around the corner. It will be the 79th Sturgis Rally and many Colorado riders will go this year, just to stay away from the organized chaos that is Rally on an anniversary year. According to the data I found, on the 75th Rally, there was over 750,000 riders that rode into Sturgis, and with that kind of crowd, comes many more opportunities for things to go wrong.
Most Colorado HD riders have done Sturgis and know what to expect, but the diversity that is now Sturgis every year brings more and more different manufacturers and a new diverse crowd of riders to our once predominately Harley based event. Women riders are growing in record numbers and venturing out on road trips on their own and Sturgis is always on their bucket list. Colorado riders that may have never been to South Dakota will want to check out our Pre-Sturgis checklist and hopefully will be prepared and ready for a great week of Rally.
Dirty Dogs Roadhouse – Sturgis South Dakota
Colorado riders who head out to Sturgis are one of the lucky ones to have their own biker bar in downtown Sturgis. Mark and Rob from Dirty Dogs Roadhouse are ready for their 2nd year at Rally. What I love about having our own biker bar up there, is seeing all my Colorado friends in one spot. Dirty Dogs is home to many of us here in Denver, and if you need to meet up with anyone, Dirty Dogs in Sturgis is where to go. It is centrally located but a block away from most of the traffic of main street and what does that mean for you? It is easier to get in/out of town and parking is more accessible to meet friends for a day of riding. Plus, who doesn’t want to walk into a Sturgis bar and have the owners greet you and say how happy they are to see you.
BikerDown as always will be there to help any of our Colorado riders, and I ask everyone headed up this year, to consider joining our BikerDown Roadside $35.00 per year membership with motorcycle towing. If you need a tow, make sure that a motorcycle towing company comes to pick up your baby. Most riders will be shocked with what your regular insurance company considers roadside towing. BikerDown has partnered with MTS and all riders with our membership will have NATIONWIDE towing and up to 2 motorcycle tows up to $150.00 each. In the event of a breakdown that 35. per year can really be worth the investment and is an extra piece of mind to have when you are far away from home.
What does it mean to be a part of American Legion?
Last month I devoted a good portion of the magazine to military groups and clubs to honor them for their service to our country and community. I ran out of space for this American Legion feature, so I hope you will take a moment to read about the progressive growth and direction American Legion and the American Legion Riders are taking. They do a tremendous amount of charity work for our veterans and community and I wanted to honor them for the sacrifice and humanitarian efforts for our veterans.
Please ride safe out there!
Mark and Rob are gearing up for the 79th Sturgis Rally and will sure to not disappoint. If you are a Colorado rider, make sure you stop by Dirty Dogs Roadhouse every day for their great morning breakfast buffet, great food specials and ice-cold beverages. Rider Justice will also be giving away great prizes every day that will make your Sturgis Rally more fun.
Comfort & Entertainment
Sturgis will be overwhelmed with riders for the 79th Rally and Dirty Dogs has a 7,000 sq. foot restaurant and bar and the Rider Justice tent will be up to keep you cool in the hot weather or dry in the Sturgis rain. Mark and Rob will have great local entertainment that is also heading up to entertain our Colorado riders. There is word that Bag Lady Sue will be entertaining and what a better way to end the day, than listening to what Bags has to say.
The new bar/restaurant is located at 1025 Junction Avenue and is right across from the Sturgis Harley Davidson store. The décor will have the same Dirty Dogs Roadhouse flare and as one owner said, we want to combine the concept of where the old Broken Spoke meets One Eyed Jacks! As we all have witnessed here in Colorado, when the owners put their mind to improving a biker bar, they pull out all the stops, with authentic vintage bikes, memorabilia that reflects a true biker bar.
Need service done to your bike? Mad Dog Custom Cycle is a staple in Sturgis but is Colorado based. They are located right next door, so if you need service or your bike breaks down, send it to a shop that has been there for 14 years and worked on by someone you know.
Colorado Rider News sat down with owners last month and here is the recap of the new improvements to the Sturgis location.
- 7,000 sq. feet bar/restaurant with indoor and outdoor bars. They will have a massive outside tent to host all their regulars
- DD will be bringing a limited menu of your Colorado favorites such as Cheesesteaks, and their infamous wings along with 5-6 items from their current Golden menu;
- Breakfast Bar from 6-ish every day and a great meeting place to meet up with other riders!
- Entertainment nightly with some of your Colorado favorites such as Dave Frisk and Tony Roserio playing during the day. Mark has some great additions in store as well.
