Since you’ll be riding a motorcycle you will clearly be consuming a fair quantity of gasoline. Generally you will get around 25 miles per gallon so to figure out your gasoline costs look at it as $12 per 100 miles. Take your distance to and from Sturgis and then look at the riding you’ll do on a day to day basis. When I tour around the Black Hills I generally ride about 300 miles per day. So for me 1200 miles to travel to and from Sturgis and 900 miles touring provides me a fuel expense of $252.00. Of course if you trailer your motorcycle you will want to adjust your fees for the MPG that your truck or car or RV gets.
Aside from all the apparent reasons for riding a bike, the 1 that I wasn’t expecting was for life to actually get significantly less stressful. A large chunk of my time was going towards commuting and I merely ran out of time for drama. If there was something bothering me I had a strong ride coming up to operate via it. Amazing how a few miles on the bike clears the head and whatever could have been eating away at me became less substantial.
Of course, the main concern about a soft case is no matter whether it’ll in fact do it’s job of defending the bike. As you can see in the pictures, the bike is actually very effectively protected by numerous thick pieces of foam padding.

Yes, if they ran more than the case with a truck, I’d most likely be SOL… but outdoors of some catastrophic accident, I felt like it’d be fine.
