What are some "cant miss or you came for nothing" type things to do/see while in Sturgis? Top five maybe?

The actual town of Sturgis can get old quick. Spend at least a day riding over to Keystone & Mount Rushmore. Deadwood is also not to be missed.
Don't start drinking until you are where you are going to stay. The best parties are in the camp grounds.

All of the above.
Take the ride in and out of Nemo. You can get to Nemo from Rapid City, Lead/Deadwood, or Junction Ave from Sturgis.

One of the funniest and saddest moments was watching a camper stuck in a needles highway tunnel (just too big). The language and hostility displayed by the couple were priceless. You knew the marriage was in trouble and if they made it out, a divorce was expected.

Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Hullet Wyoming(Ham & Jam on Wed) Stone House Saloon, Sylvan Lake, Needles Highway, Spearfish Canyon and plenty more. You can't see it all in one trip. Don't speed zero tolerance, don't drink & drive zero tolerence, no illegal substance or you can kiss your ride goodbye as you donate it to South Dakota law enforcement.

rick you went at the right time screw all of that traffic and BS in Sturgis... you can get some serious riding in a few weeks before the rally. The Newbs will figure this one out after the first go around.
Got that right I'm headin out weekend rally ends did that a few yrs ago great riding no traffic. Went last yr during rally wont be doing that again anytime soon. I can only take one day of craziness and that's enough for me guess I'm getting old

So far traffic has not been an issue at all. But the rally hasn't really started yet either. Maybe some folks sat this one out for the big HD Milwaukee bash.
