Sturgis 2016. 2016 not 2015
« on: July 09, 2015, 05:55:39 pm »


So I was doing some talking, and my schedule for next year dictates that I will have to go to Sturgis with my dad.  Since the hotel rooms are so hard to get, and my dad won't go unless he can stay in a hotel, I am going to start planning and reserving a year early.   

I expect to be leaving Omaha the first week of August and I will probably spend 5 days on the road with my dad, and perhaps be able to talk the Nebraska chapter into going. 

Is there a group meet-up?  Or would anyone like chime in if no plans are in the works?  I might even be able to acquire additional rooms ahead of time if Bruce, Jumper, Ed, or some of the other guys want to join up.

I have been to the Black Hills many times, and I have quite a few friends up there, but have never been to the Sturgis Rally.  I know the drive there is fantastic anyway you come from 500 miles.

Coming up from Nebraska gives you a ton of options from going straight up to South Dakota, or going through Niobrara, to the Sandhills, to the Badlands, Custer, Hill City, and up.

There really isn't a bad way to go, but hoping steer clear of "bad elements".


Also who's going this year?  I expect I will be up that way to collect one of our horses for training, but I need to get some things squared away on the X before I can ride with peace of mind.

Cheers fellas

Man, I just got back from 2015 so I should be set for a few years, but my brother is already taking about 2016. Thinking I might have to go and ride the X this time.
The campground I've been to for the past few trips rents cabins with a bed and an A/C. No running water but it is right across from the shower house. Its the best deal is Sturgis f you don't want to pack a tent but need to reserve in early October for next year.

I need to make up my mind by next month so anyone else interested please chime in.

BTW, I was kind of thinking we should plan a trip out on the 20th anniversary of the unveiling. I think that would be kind of cool.

A lot of Xer's like to hang out in Spearfish at the Sherwood Motel or at the Spearfish Campgrounds... Think about that area... The Xer's meet up in Center City at WY'S Casino on Tuesday of Sturgis... Mack Backlund usually is the point of contact for that... Show up and hang for a while around 12-1 p.m. There are Xer's that go each year and have a good time.
2016 so far looks like Daytona in March... Laughlin in April... Dunno about Mem. Day yet... Sturgis in Aug... Maggie Valley in Sept 2016..
BUT WAIT!!!
You might as well come on down to the Barber Museum in OCT.8,9,10 2015!!!
We are getting a bunch of Xer's together there to ride and tour and watch some racing... Come on down!! Details here, Facebook and over on the Yahoo. Boards..
