We did this the week before the Sturgis Bike Rally. Lots of other bikes but not so many you couldn't enjoy the mountain views without fear of running over someone else. Great riding, great vistas, great food, and we always ended the day with a stop in Sturgis. The week before the rally, most of the Sturgis venues were set up and in operation - just not as many people to worry about. I would recommend this to anyone over 35 who has "been there - done that" and just wants to enjoy themselves.
