Our group of seven rode to sturgis for the first time from upstate NY...
690 miles the first day, only 415 the second because of being at a HD dealer to get one the bikes looked at, and 680 the final day. The only weather we ran into was a torrential downpour/high wind situation just north of Chicago.
I just got into the rest stop before the sky opened up. Thank god I parked my Ultra with air cleaner side toward the wind, otherwise it would have gone over.
While in Sturgis, we rode about 600 miles in four days.
On the way back, 680, 575, and 540..we hit moderate rain in western pa and western NY. The same bike that was looked at by HD on the way out, broke down south of Chicago, He was traveling with his son and they rented a uhaul and drove the bikes back.
