    Sturgis, SD 2016 76th Anniversary -

    I will be heading out later this week for week of camping near the infamous Sturgis Bike week - So just thought I'd throw some feelers out to see who may be going to the Mother of all motorcycle rallys. Pictures are sure to follow on this thread.

    I'll be there-this will be my 2nd trip out there with the first being in 2002.

    I've been going somewhere with a great friend once a year for the last 20+ years and this will be our second loooong trip together, 16 days and an expected 6000 miles traveled whereas we usually only average 1000-1500 miles in about 6 days.





    Oh, and yes we will be riding...trailers are for

    I'm no biker, but we'll have a whole lot of them passing through on their way to Sturgis.

    Last year we were hauling hay out to the ranch. Two pickups, gooseneck trailers and small square bales. There's a little bar we would have lunch at in the tiny town of Hawk Springs Wyoming. Little bitty place, nobody ever goes there except the locals. They even have a truck scale so the area ranchers can weigh their cattle. We pulled in once during Sturgis week and found the entire parking lot filled with bikes. The place was packed elbow to elbow inside, and when we walked in it was like hearing the proverbial needle screech across a record. Everyone in the place was wearing leather and vests except for two guys in jeans and cowboy hats. I think if the girl at the bar hadn't recognized us and said hi some of the patrons may have asked us to leave. Felt like I was living a David Allen Coe song, "where bikers stare at Cowboys, who are laughing at the hippies, who are praying they'll get out of here alive..."

    We are staying in Keystone for the first 5 days, then after that we have no reservations or specific plans or routes-we'll go wherever the wind takes us

    I wish! Never made it and probably never will.
    Unfortunately when you WORK at a dealership having the extra cash for trips & your own motorcycle don't come easy.
    If you are the owner or related to him/her it's a different story. I have been watching the tail light for to many years.

    KE8LW-

    You're traveling to one of my favorite spots on earth, The Black Hills of SD. I grew up near and in Rapid City, SD; I left there 34 years ago and have returned too infrequently since.

    I've never been to the Rally, but 40 years ago I sneaked into the short track races near the hill climb site with some buddies.

    The weather should be superb along with the sunsets; please be safe and don't become one of the accident statistics that come along with creating the largest temporary city west of the Rockies for a week. Also, please eat some Beef jerky from Sturgis Meats.

    Ride Safely,
    Brian

    Thank you for your work - I know all about how money doesn't come easy. Been there, I drove a 20+ year old truck for 5 years, I had truck beds flopping in the wind, no floor boards either side, and fenders almost non existent. so I could get my first hog paid for, that's the hard one. After that you got your down payment and makes it expensive but more reasonable.

    Sorry for you luck buddy but I do hope to one day see you there, it is a rally like no other.

    Thanks Brian - I hope for a safe good ride and some donating to them great black hills. I love the area and the sites are absolutely beautiful. Never had the jerky from Sturgis meats so Looks like I will try to remember head there and get me some JERKY... thanks for the heads up. I like the rally but honestly just use rally for an excuse to get myself outwest and do the riding in the best part of the country.

    Those of you coming from the east and traveling I90 are going to be passing right by me. You are more than welcome to swing by for some of my hospitality if we can work it out. It would most likely be an evening or weekend fellowship. I would love to meet you for some chit chat. It does not matter if it is to or fro. Have a safe ride everyone!
