Just in case you are interested, you may want to give WI State Fair RV Park a call, it'd be a great place to stay, they have full hook-ups and you'd be about 5 miles from downtown...

I'm hoping this thread stays alive all the way to the big show.. We'll talk as it gets closer to the date[/QUOTE]


Good info and I will make reservations at the State Park. I am also considering heading up to New England in June for Americade or Laconia --- not sure which one yet, but have never been to either one. This retirement stuff is great!

I was checking out the Rally webpage and it looks like they have new webcams in Sturgis and Deadwood. Fun looking at the town now visualizing what it will look like in August!

I agree.. I noticed that last week... I am anxious to see what HD builds as part of their new 75yr lead sponsorship deal with Sturgis..

I can't wait to get there and check everything out.. from the vendors to the naked chic's ...

Besides... watching any webcam here in Milwaukee pretty much sucks as Mother Nature decided to dump over 12" of snow on us yesterday..

Actually... We really don't ever get to see that type of scenery, except for maybe on the 5's... 100th, 105th, 110th etc..

Well... The local HD dealerships hold an "Anniversary" rally every Labor Day weekend (same as the big one's).. Harley gets involved on the 5's and makes it bigger than big.

I believe the "official" rally is from 8/3-8/9... However, I think the unofficial start date is the week before.. Many of the vendors, along with the surrounding communities, are welcoming bikers up to a week in advance.

If you are camping for the event, "most" of the campgrounds charge you a set fee for the week before, and the week of the rally...

If you want to go... decide soon.. its the 75th anniversary and I'm not sure what the camp site availability is right now.. I know I had a heck of a time making reservations two months ago.. but, all that depends on the type of camping you want to do, and the amenities you require..

Good Luck !!

Great pics Shark! Great idea to post pics from previous rallies. Help the days stay warmer and speed up the time 'till riding season!

I could post another picture (of what it looks like outside right now.. snowing of course).. but I'm guessing the moderator would remove it... cruel and unusual punishment you know...
