Default 81st Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally Aug 6-15th

The 81's Annual Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis South Dakota.

Should be a great time once again.

A few years ago when there was the ONLY time I've seen another XT276 and they parked right beside me at the campground.

See you there

No long waiting as the campground serves food....good food at reasonable prices. Always have breakfast there and sometimes the evening meal. Place an order and it's up in about 5 to 10 minutes.

Buddy has stayed at the downtown RV park you mentioned for several years and called last week, has reserved spot wanted and all is good.

I stay about 8 miles outside Sturgis at family owned/operated campground and they have 1 or 2 helpers, maybe - otherwise all family.

No problem

Smile Sturgis Rally

I wonder if we own that trailer that was parked beside you a few years ago. We live in Ontario, close to Stratford and bought the trailer from a couple near Tiverton, ON
Sure wish the border was open so we could check out this rally.

Checked on the web cams in Sturgis a few times. Looks like everyone is having fun. It's probably a good thing there no web cams at the campgrounds......

Party that has exact same FunFinder as mine and parked next to me was from Missouri or ??? done recall but not from Canada. It was 3 fellows as I recall & one mentioned they forgot to secure the vent cover from the stove hood fan vent and lost it when traveling.

Any of that type of 'activity' is mostly found at the Buffalo Chip campground. Only stayed there once ... to noisy to get any sleep.

Had a great time and spent most of it riding thru the Hills again with very little time spent in Sturgis.. basically only part of one morning. Streets were not to busy but always a bottleneck to enter/exit the town of Sturgis.

Noticed more bikes throughout the Black Hills in every little 'whistle stop' along the roads than even during the 50th Rally.

Initial forecast was for about 3/4 million visitors but latest forecast (based on attendence) is a total of closer to 1 million bikers for the Rally.

You have to remember, many only come for a few days and leave so the numbers change daily and the number each day may be more or less than the day before. NEVER is the total number of those in attendance there for the entire Rally period.

The weather was great but a little warm in the high 80's & 90's but always cooler riding thru the Hills.

Saw on the real news that SD Governor Noem visited and rode with a group out to the Buffalo Chip. That was refreshing to see.

Yes, Gov. Noem is a 'real person person'
