July 10, 2013Gear Up for Sturgis!
It’s almost that time… time for Sturgis! If your blood starts pumping at the mere mention of the word, we know how you feel. We have compiled a few tips that will help the newcomers and Sturgis veterans alike. If you plan on riding to South Dakota, here is some helpful information and must-have gear recommendations!
What to Pack:
Wear your leather gear for the ride, and have your rain gear handy in case you experience rough weather on the way. You won’t have the luxury of packing for every type of weather, so check the forecast before you leave to pack the right clothes. Plan on wearing a pair of jeans more than once, and bring flip flops and other “campground attire.”
Use a waterproof bag for your toiletries. Most campground showers require you to bring everything into the stall with you, so a single bag that can hold everything and hang on a hook will work best.
Choose a tent, sleeping bag, and sleeping mat that are small enough to be strapped to your bike. Fleece sleepers may be a good option for your sleeping bag because they will roll up much tighter than standard ones.
Other useful items include a knife, sunscreen, lotion, chapstick, a flashlight, and disposable hand wipes… don’t forget your camera!
Where to Stay:
For your stay at Sturgis, you essentially have three lodging options:
We know… it’s a long shot. But if you and your significant other are looking for a unique place to tie the knot, you can get married at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally!
