Places to park in or around Hamburg, NY

July 2016 I will be driving our bus to Hamburg for the annual BMW MOA International Rally. I sell and service Bing carburetors for the older airhead BMWs and we go the the rally every year to sell parts and help people get their bikes running properly again for the ride home. This time I'll have our bus finished so we can skip the week long motel stay. Aside from paying to park in an rv spot at the rally, is there any good place that I can park on the cheap within 5-10 miles of Hamburg itself? I'd rather stay out of big box store parking lots and I won't need any kind of hookups. Supposedly there are some boondocking spots at the fairgrounds, but I'm not sure how fast they'll fill up. I'm hoping some of the east coast skoolies have some experience with the Buffalo area... Thanks in advance for any east coast advice...

You make any padded carbs that don't marks in you shins? AKA Bing dings?

Nope, that's just part of the experience of riding a BMW. That and hooking a bootlace on a bowl spool and pulling the carb bowl off going down the highway...
