Off to Sturgis

What do ya think.....did I overdo the packing? Now all I have to figure out is where I'm going to sit. I have a tent, sleeping bag, air mattress, ground cloth, chair & a few clothes. This is one of the few times I wish I had a bigger bike. I'll know within an hour after I leave if its doable.

Looks like you have the largest backrest I have ever seen on a motorcycle. Ride safe and enjoy the trip. And be sure to stop at the Corn Palace!

Yeah, that's a loaded machine. Try Lamphere Ranch campgrounds. Looks like the tent spots have lots of shade. East of Sturgis and North on road to Bear Butte. I get to ride up without being loaded, as I am traveling with a friend with a motorcycle hauler/pop up camper, so my bag gets to ride in the truck. (even taking 2 drawer tool chest). We'll be right across from the office/store for the next Thursday through Monday nights. Looks like we get good weather, at least for the weekend. Ride Safe --- See you there.

Not all those who wander are lost.

Looks like you are ready to get those feet up on the highway pegs lean back and relax all the way out there with that back rest! Have fun out there and ride safe!

I stayed at GlencoeCamp, next to Lamphere. Lamphere is a "quieter" campground, while Glencoe is party central. Next year I'll be trailering my bike. Never saw another Street out there, but I did look. Really enjoyed it.

If I had a dresser I probably would ride it out next year. SD is a very windy state, 20-30 mph winds all the way out. The street is a relatively small bike. The cargo capacity is very small, the luggage rack a joke & the saddlebags hold just my daily essentials (bungees, tools, etc. I did it once, rode to Sturgis & back 900 miles. That is not what the street models are designed to do. Sure, you can tour all 48 & beyond on one as they are a very capable machine. Touring the black hills they shine, in an "iron butt" ride not so. Next year I'll ride out & back in comfort pulling the bike on a trailer. I can carry a lot more camping gear & make the whole experience more enjoyable. Like I said if I had a larger, heavier touring style bike I would reconsider riding it out there.

Maybe I'll attach a hitch to my Victory Cross Country and haul my Harley Street 750.
