Sturgis is one place an thing I would love to experience at least once. I'm still young so I have plenty of time. My wife lived up there for a few years before we met so she got to see all that goes on there, so now it's my turn. It will probably be next year or the after though since we have two small children. What would be the best way to go? Bike all the way, or haul it and get it out when we get there? Keep in mind I will be coming from Oklahoma and still considered a beginner rider. I rode dirt bikes growing up and also my share of crotch rockets which I hate and I also rode my uncles triumph for a while but that was a year or two ago and the bike I'm getting and first street bike I have owned myself is a 2002 VTX 1800. Some said I bit off more than I can choose but I believe if I respect the machine that I can handle it. What do y'all think?

I will be out there. Staying at the Days of 76 camp in Deadwood from the 7th to the 12th. This will be my first Sturgis and I am pumped. Going with a couple we always ride with. Taking their motorhome and pulling the bikes in a trailer behind. Gonna be awesome. Hopefully see some of you there. I will take plenty of photos and post all the appropriate ones :cool:

A group of 8 leaving Houston leaving 8/5 returning around 8/13. Being that I'm the only Honda in the bunch the only thing i'm worried about will be more gas stops then the HD boys, i believe that they have 6 gallon tanks so i plan on taking a couple of the MSR canisters with fuel just in case, we are all pumped and ready to go.

Don't know if you guys have riden in that area before, but if not you'll love it. You will have to check out old hill city road, between Hill City and Keystone. It is a fun little ride, only about 12 or 13 miles, you cross the old steam locomotive tracks about a dozen times. Just a fun little scenic twisty ride.

I did Buffalo Chip my first year. A little too much over the top for me. I'm a grandpa now, with 13 grandkids and prefer the nice and quiet areas. I know, where is it nice and quiet in Sturgis? Well, there isn't any there, but there is outside of Deadwood. A little unknown campground called Roubaix and is part of the Black Hills National forest. Has a lake to cool off in. It is just about 10 miles south of Deadwood.

Ride safe.
