Hey Bigdogx, sorry I didn't offer any info either. I live in SD, but have never attended the Sturgis rally! Maybe this year. I had a 21 year time away from riding, but took it up again 3 years ago. I'm glad you found a place to stay. Roads to ride on: Iron Mt. Road, Needles Highway, Sylvan Lake Road, Custer State Park, especially the Wildlife Loop, Spearfish & Vanoker Canyon, Devil's Tower. If you are riding here, I'd suggest coming West through SD on Highway 44 instead of I-90, if you want a bit more scenery and less traffic. It takes you around the Southern part of the Badlands, and is a very nice ride as you cross the Missouri River Hills. I have relatives in the Black Hills and have a built in place to stay, if I ever make it to the rally, that is.
