Sturgis Motorcycle Rally 2024 SD USA

After about 25 years of procrastination i finally booked a harley davidson rental to go to the famous Sturgis Motorcycle Rally South Dakota United States.

I flew out of Brisbane with QANTAS directly to Los Angeles arriving there at 630pm, after clearing US customs and immigration i made a beeline for the FlyAway Bus Service. The LAX FlyAway® buses offer convenient regularly scheduled round-trips, seven days a week, between each terminal at LAX and the locations of Van Nuys and LA Union Station.
Passengers leaving LAX may board buses on the Lower/Arrivals Level in front of each terminal at the blue FlyAway® columns. One-way fare for the FlyAway is $9.75 compared to $50 or more in a taxi to go downtown where my hotel was.

I rented the bike with https://www.riders-share.com/, selecting up a 2021 Harley Davidson Ultra Limited for 21 days pick up and return to Las Vegas Nevada. The reason i went with Riders Share is because they are an independant company who faciltate the rental and insurance of privately owned motorcycles, and a lot cheaper than the competitors.

How long is the Million Dollar Highway?

Tucked away in western Colorado, and part of the San Juan Skyway, the road is about 25 miles (40 km) long, running from Silverton to Ouray. It climbs up to three very high mountain passes: Coal Bank Pass (10,640 ft / 3,240 m); Molas Pass (10,970 ft / 3,340 m); and Red Mountain Pass (11,018 ft / 3,358 m). The drive can be challenging during rainy days, and storms may create cascading waterfalls along the highway. It boasts North America’s highest avalanche hazard (per mile).

Day4 Lake Fork Colorado to Denver Colorado 400Km
