sturgis  sturgis ride
Let’s do our best to stay off the main Highways, and see if we can find some Grizzly Bears! Ashley National Forest is our cue to head North towards Yellowstone, and the Flaming Gorge is breathtaking, and desolate.  We ride our motorcycles in to wide open remote spaces.  Beautiful vistas and great roads today.


 

Day 4 – Aug 1 – Green River to Jackson Hole – 3:43 hr – 200 miles

  sturgis harley guided tour

sturgis harley tour  colorado harley sturgis tour

Ride our motorcycles on tour towards and one step closer to Sturgis to the famous Jackson Hole.  We are riding from the open spaces towards the larger mountains today.  The road into Jackson is an amazing mountain road that follows a crystal clear stream.  The long sweeping curves that we carve on our Harleys will keep you grinning ear to ear, and the views are breath taking.  Once we arrive in Jackson, it is a really cool town to walk around and see some live music in a Cowboy bar.


 

Day 5 – Aug 2 – Jackson to Cooke City, MT – 4:35 hr – 157 miles

  

The Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone. What more is there?   Yes, Sturgis will be great, but we are cruising Yellowstone on Harley-Davidsons!  We might see buffalo, wolves, bears, and all kinds of wildlife.  Clear mountain lakes look like a postcard.   The famous Old Faithful Geyser is on our path today, and maybe a quick dip in a cool mountain stream if it is hot?  Leaving Yellowstone we climb higher and deeper in the mountains.  On one mountain road on the way out we have see grizzly bears on our motorcycles.    It is quite a feeling to be sitting on your Harley looking at a grizzley on the side of the road.


 

Day 6 – Aug 3 – Cooke to Cody – 2:45 hr – 127 miles

  

The Beginning of the amazing Bear Tooth Highway to the town of Red Lodge, then Cody.  As our Sturgis Motorcycle tour progresses, you will have completely forgotten about Sturgis by this time.  Take time and watch the complete video above as we climb the Bear Tooth Highway.  This is my favorite day of the trip.  If only every day riding motorcycles on tour could be like this day.   For lunch the cool town of Red Lodge has some great food.  Then we get into Cody and head out to see the rodeo for our evening entertainment.


 

Day 7 – Aug 4 – Cody to Buffalo, Wyoming – 3:10 hr – 181 miles

  harley motorcycle bike sturgis tour ride

Pass through the Bighorn National Forest today.  Just a nice cruising day with some neat stops.  The vast landscape opens again on our tour.

599635_10151829481479400_1820737480_n
An extra day to just cruise around or hang out at Sturgis, or explore surrounding areas like The Badlands.   Even if you are not into the crowds, we can get out and see some amazing things today.  You don’t have to spend time in crowds if you don’t want to.  We will take you go great day rides.
In the past we did the 2 day Sturgis, but it really takes 3 days to explore the Black Hills and take it all in.

sturgis carhenge

The Badlands, Indian reservations, and The Great Plains are all part of our amazing day before we roll towards the small town USA Alliance.
One last treat of America before we head into town = Carhenge!


 

Day 12 – Aug 9 – Alliance to Denver – 4 hr – 265 miles

We fire up our Harley Davidsons for the last time and say goodbye to the Great Plains.  But first we visit the Oregon Trail.  This is where American settlers traveled Westward and staged before they attempted to survive a ride over the Rocky Mountians.  Then we point our bikes towards the town of Cheyenne, home of the American Cowboy. We give our Harley Davidsons a well deserved rest as we check
the local saloons and take a rest ourselves. But, then saddle back up for our final leg to Denver.
