I'll be trailer'ing the bike out to Rapid City (where I stay) on August 1st and then heading out West (Zion, GC, Death Valley, Hwy 1, Glacier, etc.) for 1.5 week then back to Rapid City to ride Sturgis area and leaving on the 17th to return home.

Just curious if anyone else is riding the area(s). Always enjoy meeting up with other hard core riders (no drinkers and/or bar hoppers).

Jr. and I will be riding out. Leaving 8/7 but will not be going straight to Sturgis. Tentative plans are to hit Pikes Peak, Yellowstone, BTP and other places then heading to Sturgis for the last 2 days of the rally and stay a few days after to ride the sites there then heading home.

Yes. One way or another. If the group plan stays together, I’m riding the Chieftain out with nephews and friends. If they fall apart, I’ll be on the KTM 1190 for a couple days in the Black Hills, then maybe headed to Alaska.

Yep, Lord willing it will be my ninth time riding out since 1994. Visit downtown usually once during an afternoon. Riding the hills and surrounding area the rest of the time....I'll wave if'n we pass...?

I should also mention this will be the first year riding out on something other than a model from Milwaukee...first year out was on an aqua FXSTC loaded to the hilt...that's me on the left before all the grey in the beard.

Did not think it was going to work out but a buddy and I will be there the first weekend. We have a room at the Franklin in Deadwood, great place with much better food than most anywhere else in the area. The waiting list to get a room is usually 1-2 years, but once you get off the waiting list your room is yours every year if you want it.

Riding from Ga, to my son's place in Ohio, then we are headed out on about the forth, both on Chieftans. Staying just south of Deadwood,. Once there we will meet up with the rest of the gang. Always a great time.

Day ride (probly) up from Roxborough (Denver area). Can always make time for a beer and a burger before I head back if anybody wants to meet up.

Thinking about going this year, it's in my own back yard so to speak, 200 miles South of me, Indian of Sturgis is my dealer, they installed all my Stage 2 upgrades on my Chieftain....except my PV3.

I don't drink, but am up for a few Root Beers and pound a few burgers =)

I was thinking of doing the same thing. How long a day is it? Would love to ride the Vintage up there.

Ever catch Brandon Sprague playing the blues at the Tobacco Co?
