So it's the 75th Anniversary this year. Last time I went was in 1990 at the 50th so I've decided to go to this one.

I'm leaning toward staying at the Shade Valley Campground but have not made any reservation yet.

Anyone here going? Maybe we could hook up for a day ride or check out the Victory tent.

Bob the wife and I are thinking we might go for a day or two... The ride down there from Calgary is amazing so we will likely go. I will PM you with the dates once we figure it out. We are staying at a buddies rental house for 1 night and probably in Deadwood at one of the casinos the second night.

Will be heading up there this year for the 75th. I know the campsite we are staying at was booked full by the end of Sturgis this year for the 2015 event. Will be taking the wives along and we are part of group that is a mix of HDs, Kawis, Wings, etc and of course my VIC. We will be up there at the first part of this years event and will be leaving mid-week for home. If a group on this forum plans to get together maybe we can break from the pack and meet up with others.

city of Sturgis figures they'll have over a million people for the week.
Its 42 degrees in Deadwood right now.
You best have a tent no rooms to be had

Necoach if you notice a crimson XR traveling with a brown streetglide it'll be me. Unless the plasma green Magnum that's sitting at my dealer ends up in my garage...

I'll be there. Can't be too many guys on a suede silver flamed Cross Country, can there? :cool:

At least it shouldn't get lost in the sea of black Harley baggers.

So I have firmed up plans a bit more. I will be tenting it at the Lamphere Ranch Campground from July 26 - Aug 2nd but that might be extended. They let you do that there. I like the easy access to the Full Throttle Saloon and the buses. I've ridden all around the area so I don't know if I will do more than one day ride while there so I'll let DaBus burn up their fuel and clutch instead doing it to the bike. Don't want to risk a DUI either. The $52.75 bus pass for the rally is actually a pretty good deal IMHO.

For anyone staying at the same campground maybe we can exchange cell phone numbers. Hopefully my phone will work there. They have wifi so I will check email and PM's too. I should be easy to spot as I will be riding the blue XC in the pic below.

Really looking forward to this now and it's almost 2 seasons away. Even invested in an Instant Up tent and a queen sized mattress to be comfy.

:ride:
