    Sturgis 2016

    I'm sure most who went last year blew their wad and can't afford to go again but I wasn't one of them. Since I've never been, I thought I would go this year.

    My plans are to trailer mine and another friends bike from SoCal to Salt Lake City, leaving the trailer and truck there at a friends house and riding the bikes from there. (Too hot crossing the desert) My brother and his two sons are trailering their bikes from Wichita. The big issue I have is the cost of lodging. Most places that can accommodate 5-6 want at least $4000 or more for the week, but those are for two bedrooms and in either Rapid City or some other town. I'm too old to camp out so thats out. I want to stay in Sturgis, just because I don't want to ride after a days worth of drinking.

    Anyone else going and any suggestions? Thanks.

    Im 4 hours east of there and go every year. I'm very lucky and out company owns a shop in Blackhawk. Unfortunately pretty much every place in Sturgis has been reserved for over a year. Unless you're willing to camp or spend that money you may be stuck in Rapid City. I would check the local ads though, RC Craiglist had rooms in Sturgis during ralley for rent couple weeks ago.

    Best of luck 👍

    The other option is to bring a toy hauler with 3 friends and that way 2 can ride while one drives the rig switching off to give all a chance to ride....then you have a place to sleep and do all your day riding out of Sturgis/Deadwood/Mt. Rushmore etc... while you are there.......something to think about

    Thanks everyone for their suggestions. After much thought and looking in my bank account, I think I will delay this trip until 2020....I can't see spending that much to go to Sturgis...on the other hand, I have a friend who is spending a couple months in Illinois and have invited me to the Bikes, Blues and BBQ in Fayetteville, Ark. I will tow my bike to Wichita, where my brother lives. We will ride our bikes to Branson, where we will meet up with a group from Ohio and the other group from Illinois...and where my brother-in-law lives and ride down to Fayetteville. We have some friends who live there and will be putting us up. There should be about 30 of us all together....should be a blast....if someone from SoCal wants to go, I have space for one more bike on my trailer...

    Speaking of which, I bought an older Kendon trailer which needs some TLC so will be spending the next couple months getting that ready for the long haul....
