How to Enjoy Sturgis Without Paying the Price

For bikers who attend the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally (Aug 4-13) — considered the best of the top six motorcycle rallies in the U.S. — the open road, the thundering rumble, and the camaraderie is what it’s all about.

But sometimes life gets in the way.

Work and family obligations, not to mention the terrible physical toll on your not-so-young-anymore body riding to/from South Dakota. It can be hard on the hips — and hips don’t lie. Collectively, they can be big deterrents on your decision to attend.

One way to address all these is to simply ship your motorcycle to/from Sturgis through uShip.

Here’s why it’s a novel idea:

  1. Fewer travel days mean less time off work or away from family
  2. Travel weather and safety is a non-issue
  3. You get home in one piece. No relying on the family-size bottle of Advil

Depending on your pickup point, it can cost between $250 and $550 to get your motorcycle to Sturgis so you can motorcycle wave until your fingers cramp up.

Check out our graphic to get a better idea about average prices to ship. Or visit our uShip motorcycle shipping site to get a free estimate based on your location.

Simply enter the details of your shipment and quality transport companies will then place competing bids so you get the best deal. Or name your own price if you’ve got a certain budget.
