Default Question for Sturgis perennials

Been there a couple times, but not since 2012. Iím sure itís changing a bit every year; whatís the biggest differences over a span of last 5 or more years? Considering one more trip...

I hadn't been in about 10 till we went back twice in the last 5 yrs. No significant changes that I saw other than the 75th, crowded as hell. Law is as or more tight than ever. Maybe a few small lil get away places are more commercial...
Go forth and enjoy

I go about every year even if only for a few days. Motel room rates have increased steadily over the past several years indicating demand is still strong. During the official week crowds downtown seem about the same and parked bikes extend out into the usual areas. I’ve noticed more riders coming in during the week before, especially the last part of that week. Anyway, I still like it after all these years....bikes rule and downtown scene is always entertaining but it’s easy to head out and feel some sun and get some riding in over a large area.

Same here. I'll be there a few days early to ride before the crowds come in.

The Full Throttle Saloon, which use to be close to the Buffalo Chip, burned down and has relocated..

Not too much change. . . It's still as much of a party as you make it.

Semper Fi!

It doesn't take too much planning -you just have to decide to do it!

Got a hug from Michele Smith, drank in the original Full Throttle (before it burned down), saw Skynyrd live, rode the Needles, what else is there? LOL...
