" Run to Sturgis "   { 14 Days Fully-Guided }   from.. AU$9,375

The Spirit:

There are 2 places in the world where every biker should go at least once : Daytona Beach and Sturgis.
Both events serve up a different spirit. - Daytona is Chrome & sparkles by the sea. - Sturgis is the biker's way of life, comradery, love of everything relating to motorbikes and some fantastic rides in the Black hills, only interrupted by the party atmosphere in Sturgis and Deadwood, the shows, the saloons and the concerts.

We start the Ride to Sturgis from Salt Lake City (American Fork), the trip itself, like most of our tours, is fully guided, apart from the time in Deadwood/Sturgis where the you are free to ride at your own pace or park the bike and take in the unique atmosphere of Sturgis.

Not only Salt Lake City, 'The Mormon Vatican', but landmarks like Grand Teton, Yellowstone National Park, Cody the hometown of Buffalo Bill & his rodeo, Devils Tower, Custer Park with millions of bison (buffalo), Crazy Horse Memorial, Bear Bute State Park, The Badlands and the spectacular Rocky Mountains National Park and new on the itinerary, Dinosaur National Park.

During the Sturgis Rally, we'll stay on the main street of Deadwood, a small cowboy town where Wild Bill Hickok & Calamity Jane are both laid to rest and only 12 miles from Sturgis itself..

Here we will kick off our boots and party 100%.

As we ride out the Southern Exit we enter the Grand Tetons National Park, and a mountain range that will take your breath away.

We ride South until we arrive at Jackson Hole, the 'Aspen of Wyoming' where the saying goes 'The Millionaires got kicked out by the Billionaires'. You know when Sotheby's have a real estate office in town that you need a lot of zero's on your checques to pay for your home.
