About an hour south of Council Grove on Highway 177 is Cassoday, Kansas. It's not far from the Kansas Turnpike. But don't blink as you ride through. It's that kind of small rural community where Main Street is a gravel road. There's a small U.S. Post Office, an antique store, an auto-body-welding shop, a couple of other buildings, and a cafe surrounded by a few houses. On a good day, the population of Cassoday might be 100!

But come the first Sunday of the month, May through October, the little community of Cassoday rumbles with the thunder of thousands of motorcycles, and the business community grows with the addition of motorcycle vendors. Cassoday is quickly becoming the Sturgis of Kansas six days out of the year.
