Only as long as the last post in this forum is in this thread. Somebody was commenting in another thread that they could not find any information on the 2015 rally only the 2016 so I bumped this to the top.

Art,

The Best Western in Sturgis is 6.1 miles [8 minutes] away. Not only off the ground but airconditioned and has both running water and cable TV

Hi Art:
Yes there is an RV sales company that does what you are interested in for the Sturgis rally. Go to www.jackcampers.com. (Sorry - I couldn't make it link.) But there are motels in Sturgis and Black Hawk. The Ramkota in Black Hawk is - I believe at Exit 48 putting it at 11 miles SE of the rally site. Sturgis - with a wide variety of motels is 5 miles to the nearest exit and 7 miles to an exit with several motels of familiar names.

These are options that are readily available. There is also a few campground that are close by with cabins. Goggle campgrounds Sturgis and you will get a mess of options.

Another Ural owner here, not very active on this forum, but was checking out the postings about the Sidecar Rally in Sturgis next year.

I normally take my vacation for the Sturgis Rally in August, but have been considering the USCA Sidecar Rally this time.

I have actually camped at Elkview, sometime back around 2005 or so.

I have attended and ridden in the Black Hills for 19 years...so I also know my way around up there.

I will have until January to set my vacation plans, after that, there is no turning back! I would like to know if there is a rough estimate of the number of members attending and if its expected to be a large group, maybe in the hundreds, or a small group, a few dozen or so.

I would be camping at Elkview...I sure dont want to be all alone with 3 other bikes there!

The plan is around 200 when setting things up for the rally. I always tent but there are more hotelers and RVs than tents however you will not be alone in the campground. U.S.C.A. national is always a good time if you like sidecars and there should be a pretty good showing of the Colorado Ural contingent also so you will not be alone there either. I will be leaving the Ural at home and riding my R1150GS rig but that is mainly because I am planning on heading out a week or so early and taking a ride up the Lake Michigan coast probably and across through the Badlands of North Dakota and then dropping down to Sturgis. If you have fun at this one remember the 2016 rally is in Western Colorado.

Here are some pictures from a few of the previous rallies if yow want an idea of what they look like.

Thanks Dana for pitching our rally. We would be tickled pink to have 200 there. The tenting areas are pretty close to the RV areas so you wouldn't be real lonely but I'm sure we will have many more tenters. We have several who are already making plans to RV. We have had several who have asked about motels. Beside Harold and I (Rally Chair and Co-Chair) who will be RV-ing we have at least three other RV-ers who sound pretty committed. I think that the 8 or so who have contacted us and said they are coming is pretty good considering that we have 7 months until the rally.
All that said - we are excited to have all of you come and share our great riding in the Black Hills as well as the great scenery and sites. The plans are gelling nicely and we have much planned. Keep watching this forum for the details as they develop. There will be at least 3 articles in the Sidecarist in the next three issues. We are still needing volunteers Brian. If you have a specialty we can use you. We have a volunteer to coordinate ride but if you have ridden the Hills and our coordinator can't go on every ride (But he would like to try - right Kenny).

Hey Will,
No problem on the plug, I am trying to sell it everywhere I can. I would expect you will get at least a dozen rigs camping from the Colorado folks and I know we will be plugging it at our annual Ural get together in Moab in April and we have been getting around 25 rigs there the last couple of years.

Kenny Wasserburger is a Ural rider from Gillette, WY. We have recently made contact and he is active in the Ural rider circles. He will be coordinating our rides for the rally. He would like to have the Ural riders know that this rally is open to Urals too. We would be thrilled to meet the Ural crew too.
Joe; Welcome aboard. It looks like your itinerary will include the Monumental Rally. Or am I jumping to conclusions?

We have asked about the Dog Policy at the campground and dogs are allowed with one caution. There will be a Bluegrass Festival going on at the Elkview at the same time (We planned it that way) They don't allow dogs in the festival venue. The dogs are welcome every where else. Just leave the dog at the campsite or RV during the concerts.

Think about it. The dog rule is more for the comfort of the dog then the people. A fiddle may be more uncomfortable to the dog as it is to some of us people.

We think that things are coming together for a "Monumental" rally. We already have a few volunteers. Check the first post on this tread and see if there is something you would like to help with. I will be listing the known volunteers in a couple weeks.

Avanell and I will be there. We will be RV it like always. Probably be there a few days early and stay a few days . Harold asked me to volunteer to put on games. I will need a couple of helpers,so feel free to volunteer. Avanell will be in charge of 50/50. Some help may be needed there also.
We have ridden in that area and really enjoyed the roads. Coming from flat land,so to speak,mountains are something out of the ordinary. Hope to see a good turnout.

If you and Avenell are going to be there early, maybe you'll join us for the Yellowstone Raid?

Jane & I plan to do the Yellowstone Raid. We will be in the Spearfish area on Thu and Fri of the week prior to the Monumental Rally, so it should fit nicely. Depending on when we are to link up in the Yellowstone area, we can see Devil's Tower and the Little Bighorn Battlefield Monument before, during, or after the Raid.

BMWRO - the Oregon BMW Club - puts on their Chief Joseph Rally in John Day, OR, about the same time - I don't know if they have set a date for 2015 yet but it should be the weekend of the 12-13th or 19-20th. Great rally with lots of good riding; for folks with the time, it would be easy to combine that rally with the USCA.

Thanks,
Duncan

This thread has been quiet for a week so I guess it is time to breathe a little life back in to it. You going to be at the rally Duncan? Be nice to say hello again.

Looking forward to the rally last time I was in Sturgis was 2003 right after I bought the current GS, a little busier that trip.
