A man drinking beer on a prosthetic leg, a bartender spitting booze into customers’ mouths and revealing outfits as far as the eye can see are among the frivolities of the 2023 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
The annual event, which runs from August 4-13 this year in the town of Sturgis, South Dakota, is the largest motorcycle rally in the world and kicked off on Friday.
Known as a place of letting go, many took the opportunity to walk the streets with minimal clothing and body paint – as participants shared their escapades online.
In one video, a man was filmed drinking beer from a prosthetic leg as it foamed from his bearded mouth poured by a bartender wearing a gold bikini at a breath bar. It is unclear if it was his own leg that he removed for the stunt.
Other videos showed another bartender spitting hard liquor into a customer’s mouth of hers as she squatted on the bar revealing denim shorts.
Hundreds of thousands of bikers are expected to descend on South Dakota to watch the 10-day Sturgis Motorcycle Rally which begins on Friday
A man was spotted drinking with a prosthetic leg fed to him by a bartender in a gold bikini
The footage involving the prosthetic leg was captured inside One Eyed Jacks Saloon in the city.
A large crowd can be seen gathered around the man who eagerly awaits a prosthetic leg which is filled with a bottle of beer from a balcony above him.
As the leg is lowered, a bartender in a gold bikini then pours it into the man’s mouth, dripping beer over his beard and hoodie.
Despite the mess, the crowd surrounding the man cheers him on as the bartender raises her fist.
In another video shared on TikTok, a female bartender can be seen climbing to the top of a wooden bar in the city.
Before climbing to the top of the bar, the woman can be seen downing a shot glass before spitting it into the mouth of a waiting customer.

Other videos captured at the same bar also show a group of men playing beer pong with a cup stuck between a bartender’s cleavage.
Along with activities in bars, hundreds of women attending the festival shared their skimpy outfits of choice on social media.
One woman was pictured wearing a cut-out t-shirt that read “I wouldn’t give a fuck”, while another shared a video of herself in a bikini as she prepared to go to a strip club.
Another was filmed wearing next to nothing, but with a large, bushy tail protruding from her rear.
The event typically draws around 700,000 runners each year to the town of Sturgis which has a population of just 7,000.

Despite the jovial atmosphere among attendees, this year’s festival was hampered by torrential downpours.

The South Dakota Department of Tourism estimated that the rally brings in about $800 million in revenue for the state.
Sturgis business owners are eagerly awaiting the economic boost the runners will bring.
Ponderosa Café chef Michael Dean Coronato told the Cowboy State Daily earlier this week that he had been preparing for the event for two weeks.
He said: “It’s a big impact. We are not raising our prices. We embrace it, rather than trying to screw them up, and that’s why we survive.
‘That’s why they come here. You know, there are hotels that triple the price and people that raise the price of beer.

The Colorado Department of Transportation has announced that there will be a DUI enforcement period with increased security patrols from August 3-15.
This is due to the number of riders crossing Colorado to get to the event who have been arrested for drunk driving.
A total of 308 people were arrested for impaired driving during the same period last year.
