If you are going the week before check out this thread: http://www.vtxoa.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=180059

The week of depends on what you consider worth it?? After 20+ years of it I think it sucks anymore?? It's pretty much everyone showing off how much money they can spend? The good part is you can catch some good racing without having to worry about huge crowds...I guess it's worth checking out once?

Very good point! Every year thousands (yes thousands) come here only to crash. The combination of new riders, bigger bikes, booze, excitement, crowds, and challenging roads proves to much for all too many. While most get by with minor injuries, it is best to know your limits and watch out for the other guy. If you are coming be carefull!!!

Me and the wife went for the first time last year. We decided if we were going, we would do the whole week and camp.

We had a GREAT time and are going again this year. There are some nice sites in the area and plenty of stuff to do.

I just got back from the Black Hills. I stayed in a historic hotel in Deadwood and the riding was amazing. Just pick a direction and you'll find a National Park with scenic views and excellent roads. Besides the Black Hills and Badlands, I recommend riding out to Wyoming and seeing Devils Tower. It's not too far from Sturgis and worth the ride. Enjoy!
