I'm the organiser and wife of one of a group of Aussie middle-aged bikers who are planning to attend the August 2009 Sturgis Rally. I have a dilemma. The lads will be visiting Las Vegas and flying to either Denver or Salt Lake City (SLC) to collect bikes and ride to Sturgis. Bikes will need to be returned from place hired so it has to be a return trip.
From my reading, Denver is a shorter trip to Sturgis and could be done in a day, or at least overnight. I have the feeling that the ride is not very interesting, especially for the return.
SLC is at least a 2 day ride to Sturgis but it seems that the ride is far more scenic and it is possible to go a different way back?
The lads want to ride the Beartooth highway.
Thank you very much for any advice.
