Greetings, I am a local (well actually, I live 25 miles from Sturgis) and look forward to the Rally every year. If this is your first time, you definitely need to check out downtown at least once. You are staying at one of the better campgrounds, we always make it a point to visit the Broken Spoke a time or 2. One ride I would highly encourage is the Devil's Tower run (from the Spoke, take Hwy 79, then Hwy 212 to Belle Fourche, then Hwy 34 to Alladin, Hulett, and then the tower). I live on Hwy 34, just 4 miles west of Belle Fourche (just 1.5 miles from the Stonehouse Saloon -- make sure you stop there for a time), feel free to swing in to my place and have a meet and greet, let alone a brew or 2. Your can let me know if you are interested and I will give you details. There is always a good crew at my place during the rally, and we can give you some local color! If you are looking for a really crazy day for that run, do it on Wednesday, as that is the big day is Hulett -- No Pantie Wednesday is not what is used to be, but it still turns a sleepy little town of a few hundred into a mass of humanity and motorcycles for a day -- great people watching place. Also, Sundance Wy, is one the way, either going or coming, and that's the big "burnout" celebration day -- something else to experience.
Anyway, look me up if you feel like it, be glad to point you around and offer what advice I can.
