I am actually going in two weeks, first for me. Going with a bunch of cruisers, friends i've known for years. As it stands now, we are going to Clinton, for the testicle festival on the way. I'm told that sturgis is a choir practice compared to the Teste Feste.
i'll be riding the blue fjr with all the harleys :D

I'm heading for the East Coast with a friend on a Harley Sportster starting tomorrow. Sturgis happens to be in the way coming back at the beginning of August. I'll have to see if it can be avoided.

I ride an FJR. I don't need no stinkin' trailer.

Yep, planning to head out on the 6th, with a couple Harley's as well. We will be tenting it, $250.00 a night was a quote a pal of mine got for rooms. Going really to Mt. Rushmore and some surrounding spots, Sturgis will be a sidebar, not our main intent. But it's bucket list scratch-off. As will be the Colorado mountains on the return ride---camping too for that matter.

If you are going on the 1st, that's quite early huh, it doesn't start till the 8th.

Yeah, I had no interest in rubbing elbows with the great unwashed. The riding in the area is great, as I have been told for some time. :)

My father and I are toying with the idea of going. If we go we'll be leaving from Colorado Springs, CO on Aug 9th. I just want to have been there, done that and see this thing for myself.
