Florida to Stugis 2015

I just completed a 3450 mile trip from Florida to Maine and back to DC and loved every minute of it. This was a test trip for me as I was familiar with the routes and roads.

Now I am in the infancy of planning my next trip and would like to hit up Sturgis. It's a bucket list item.

I would love to ride to Sturgis by way of Durango CO, Million Dollar Hwy, over to Denver and up to Sturgis area. Current plans are to meet up with friends from LA in Denver and complete the ride. After Sturgis, slab it back home.

Prelim plans are to slab it to Birmingham then through the Ozarks in Arkansas, but after that not sure. It will be middle of summer in the south and I am concerned about heat heading over to CO.

Anyone done this trip in the summer time? Looking for any and all suggestions. Plan to camp where I can or cheap motel it. Will have 2-3 weeks time frame. Probably spend two days in Denver as well.

Thanks
