Any of you Tx people headed to Sturgis?

Just curious to see how many Tx riders headed to Sturgis and when? I've never been and was thinking of heading up there since I'm off work that week and my wife and I can't take a vacation together this year since she has no time off.
Oh well. I'm thinking about going, but was wanting to ride up there with someone or in a group. (I live in west Texas west of Lubbock.) Haven't found a group around here headed up that way yet. It all depends on if I can find a place to stay and $ and if the wife really lets me to go. (stay somewhere quiet at night, I'm not the partying type......anymore.) I could meet up with anyone in NM somewhere or where ever.

West of Lubbock? Ain't a whole lot out that way, is there? lol Hell, you're half way to Sturgis already, should only take you 6 or 7 hours.

Sorry. lol I over nighted in LBB last Sunday night. We stayed at the Days Inn and had Texas shaped waffles before we made the final run back in to Austin. Only thing better'n leaving Texas is coming back. Sure was good to be home again.

God Bless Texas!

Your right, not a lot out here, but we do have a lot of farm to market roads to ride that go on forever! And Amen to God Bless Texas!

I have never been. My biker buddy goes every year after Rally. I am going to try and go with them 8/24. They will trailer/ride about 2500 miles to Sturgis via W. Colorado with 4-5 bikes. Ride the bike when u want, ride in the A/C truck with a cold brewski when u want.....which is probably what I will do til we get out of W. Texas on a 105-107 degree day.

I figured it was expensive. If we do go up there we are trying to find the cheapest place to stay (tent). We're not going to stay up there the whole week, just a few days and then head back.

If your looking to save money don't pitch your tent at the Buffalo Chip. IIRC it cost us like $300 per person for the week. Also beer that the Full Throttle Saloon was like $7 a pop. When you go to places like Mount Rushmore parking is like $15 per bike not per parking space.

we won't be staying anywhere close to the rally. Found a place in Keystone for $20 a night per person. We're not the hard partying type. Would still like to find a group heading up there though.
