We spent the 3 nights in Custer and then 2 nights in Custer State Park…Sylvan Lake and Blue Belle.
2 great places to stay at.
In total we spent 5 nights and really enjoyed ourselves.
Then we headed back to Loveland CO to load the bikes back on the trailer.
Sturgis….wow is all I can say.
I will prolly never see that many bikes again.
There was a ridiculous amount of people that attended this event.
They estimated 1 million bikes and 1.7 million people….don’t know how accurate that is.
The Tetons and Yellowstone are stunning.
I love Beartooth Pass and Red Lodge.
We were so lucky in and around Sturgis that we didn’t get stuck much in “parade mode”…we always managed to get out of it.
The food….again amazing…I had one of the best roast beef diners in downtown Deadwood.
Very cool bar in Ten Sleep were we had lunch.
Grand Tetons was expensive but we really lucked out in Custer.
People staying in Sturgis and Deadwood paid a ridiculous amount of money.
My favorite place is the Alpine in Red Lodge but the Rock Crest in Custer is a close second.
Gas station across the street so you can get beer and coffee or whatever.
And The Purple Pie Place is right next door.
And it’s a short walk to the downtown.
A little expensive but still a great trip.
The boys loved it and we are already talking about next year.
Trailer…..oh how I love this idea.
I have done the Ontario to South Dakota way too many times.
(At least 8 times)
This was a greatest…..having my bike trailered out there really made a difference.
My guess is I wouldn’t drive back out there again if I can have my bike trailered.
Changes….looking back on it now I guess the only thing I would change is maybe a shorter ride on the last day to the trailer.
I wouldn’t mind making this shorter…maybe like 80 miles or whatever.
The half day that it took grew tiresome quite fast.
I’ll look to better that next year
Also Jackson Hole….i wish we could of gone into Jackson.
I saw a drone video of the city and it really looks like it would be a great place to explore more.
