Each year, about this time the Black Hills can triple in population, and a large number of the extra half-million people who show up have loud thundering motorcycles.

Bikers are everywhere in South Dakota thanks to the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.   Some locals don’t like the noise--but many riders say loud pipes increase their safety.  SDPB’s Charles Michael Ray has more on the debate on today’s Dakota Digest.
