Despite the efforts of 45 firefighters, the Full Throttle Saloon building burned to the ground last Tuesday morning, according to an article in The Washington Post.

The Full Throttle Saloon was a famous stop for bikers attending the annual Sturgis Rally, particularly this year, when it claimed to see 15,000 bikers per night. The founder, Michael Ballard, was out of town when the fire occurred and has not commented on the event yet.

Ballard did say on the saloon’s website, “The Full Throttle is the number one blue collar bike bar in the United States. Everyone is welcome.”

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
