We all stayed at Shade Valley 2008, and we're back this year again. Just thought I'd pop in a couple of things people might like to know.
'Da Bus' is a superb service. A $35 wrist band (if you buy it before July 15th) and you have guaranteed transport in and out of Sturgis. The drivers are great, and the bus journeys are something else. Beer and soft drinks are available, clothing optional etc etc. Using Da Bus is part of the experience and sure beats a DWI rap.
Also - check the regs re helmets, as if you are young or not fully licensed you need one. Don't do 'rolling stops', it is a gift to the cops! And always wear eye protection - as it is the law in SD. Keep donuts and burnouts for the pits too.
And if anyone is riding down from Toronto this year - I'll see you on the road. I'll be the Canadian Limey on a Triumph Scrambler!
