Biker Belle of the Day

Ask Jacey Fowler if she's ready to take her own motorcycle to the rally, and her answer is simple, but emphatic:

"Yeah," she said with a smile.

Riding motorcycles is already a passion of 14-year-old Jacey, who rode with her dad, Aaron Fowler, on his gleaming 2008 Purple Haze limited edition Electra Glide.

"I really like having the wind in my hair, and how you get to see things you usually wouldn't see in a car," Jacey said of motorcycle riding, referencing a trip through Spearfish Canyon as an example.

Hailing from Belle Fourche, Aaron Fowler said he hasn't missed a rally since 1990, and he's been bringing Jacey with him for the last five years. And despite the rally's somewhat raucous reputation, Aaron said he never fears for his daughter's safety while they're in Sturgis.

"I trust bringing her to the rally more than some general events," Aaron said.

He said his wife rides with him too, but the rally is "Daddy-daughter day." They encourage Jacey in her passion, but as for taking her own ride to the rally — that will probably have to wait until she's 18.
