DSC03883wFor a week in August literally hundreds of thousands of riders descend on the tiny town of Sturgis, South Dakota.

This year, you can be a part of it! Twelve days of riding includes Yellowstone National Park and a three night stay at the largest Motorcycle Event on earth, Sturgis Bike Week. After Sturgis, we'll continue through the Badlands and Rocky Mountain National Park to Denver.

We leave Las Vegas on July 31, taking the "Scenic Route" to Sturgis. We'll cross a spectacular corner of Arizona through the Virgin River Gorge, and spend our first night in Springdale UT, gateway to Zion National Park. Zion meant “resting place” to the Mormon settlers in the area. We ride between sheer cliffs of Navajo Sandstone rising 2,000 ft. (609m) above the green valley floor. Our path continues north through the back roads of Utah climbing to over 10,000 feet (3,048m) elevation in the Mt. Nebo wilderness. We'll follow Provo Canyon around the Salt Lake City metro area and into Wyoming, then on to Jackson. The next day takes us into Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. The Yellowstone miles are not demanding, and there will be plenty of time to explore the sights, sounds and smells of of of the most unique (and at the same time amazingly diverse) regions on the planet. Wildlife is plentiful, and we almost always see big game such as moose, buffalo, elk, deer, bear and wolf.

Leaving Yellowstone you'll have the unique thrill of riding the Beartooth Highway, which Charles Kuralt called the "most beautiful road in America". It's near the top of every motorcyclist's list of "must-rides". You'll see a real western rodeo in Cody, and then we're off through the Bighorn Mountains on the way to Bike Week.Rushmore1w

We spend our last night before Sturgis near the Wyoming border in a restored nineteenth century hotel. The owner tells me that at one time a portion of the establishment was in fact available by the hour. Apparently when the cowboys came to town, they did not need much sleep.

Our final leg to Bike Week takes us through the Big Horn Mountains and an optional side trip to Devil's Tower.

When we get to Sturgis, you'll see bikes (and PEOPLE!) of every make, model, size, shape, age, color and variety. Everyone is there to relax and have fun, and although the crowds are huge, folks are generally well-behaved. Indeed, "people-watching" at Sturgis is as much fun as the riding!

Even if you never go back again, it's worth going just once to say that "I was there". All that being said, unless you are a true Sturgis die-hard, a few days at Bike Week is enough for most people, and then it's time to put theWRCw masses behind and RIDE. Fortunately, within less than a day's travel of Sturgis the crowds thin out and there's nothing but you, your bike, and the wide open roads of the western US.

So after three nights amid the excitement of Bike Week, we're hitting the road through the Badlands and Rocky Mountain National Park, navigating the highest paved road in North America on the way to Denver.

All in all, you'll see more of the American West than you dreamed possible AND be a part of the largest gathering of motorcycles on earth. Spend twelve days with us this summer and you'll see what we mean!
