lotta people stay away from Rapid City/ Sturgis and areas inbetween because of jacked up rates on motels, menus, gas, etc. Vendors started settings things up last week. I'm ready for the rumble to start on the road where I live between the Badlands and Rapid. Rapid City has set aside a few blocks on Main street for two wheel parking only. Ads in the paper are callin for bikini bike washers, security, bartenders, waitstaff, etc. Sturgis was going to lift the "open container" law for pedestrians but, it didn't have enough votes to pass. "The Chip" and Full Throttle are geared up, too.

I wish I were going again this year, but I decided that I only go on olympic years. I went back in '06, skipped '07, then back in '08. Hopefully I'll be able to go back in 2010.

We stayed at a campground just outside of Sturgis on '06 (I can't remember the name), and we stayed at "The Chip" last year. We had a blast there. It's a party if you want it to be, but you can actually find pretty quiet areas in the campground.

Friends of mine have been out there for the rally and said once was enough. They're not really fans of large crowds to begin with so I'm not even sure why they spent 3 hours getting to SD then another 5 riding across the state to get to Sturgis.

It would be cool to see all of the bikes though.

Heading out early in the morning on the 31st. Can't wait. The minutes are sure ticking by slowly. I'll be riding out again. rode all the way last year. I am not a big fan of crowds sometimes but I sure like the crowd there. I love people watching. Plenty of wonderful riding around the area that everyone should do at least once. I'll go to Sturgis every year I can. I look forward to it all year long.

Be at the Chip from Saturday to Saturday 7 days, looking forward to concerts, hill climb, and some nice rides. (Spearfish canyon) Plan on an early AM ride to McD's for breakfast then to National cemetery to see Sheldon Ray Hawkeagle's grave (a 21 year old that died in Iraq). Monday and Tuesday around 4 PM I'll be at the Chip's Watering Hole bar. I'll be wearing a black 2004 Sturgis hat with an eagle on it. Stop by I'd like to meet you guys and buy you a beer.

Just Ride

Hey Tink...you have to ride Vanoker Canyon too if you like Spearfish Canyon. Do it early in the morning before all the idiots get on the road. Great ride!!! Also, try the Nemo pancake breakfast if you have never been there. My two cents.

Shhhhhhhhhhhh about Nemo. That road is great no one rides it and the canyon is just as good as Spearfish. Stay away from Devils tower on Wednesday. Everyone and his mother rides out there that day.then onto Sundance. Sundance has a elevated burn out cage, the town people come out and all the little old blue hairs make their home made stuff. I always end up with the wild blue berry pie/ home made ice cream.

the ride from Rapid City to the Badlands is a pretty nice scenic way to get there. Lot better then the interstate, in my opinion. But, make sure you are fueled up before ya leave scenic. The closest place from there at the New Underwood intersection on 44 and it closes at 7 in the evening. But, Steves Store is 12 miles north and is open longer. The Next place on 44 is the the Caputa Store and it closes at 7 also. The latter has a BBQ caterer this year. I haven't tried it but it smells good as I pass by.

We had a great week at the Buffalo Chip in Sturgis. Lots of good concerts, great rides, Sturgis shopping and memorable moments. A special Thanks to hanronson for the tip on Nemo and Vanoker Canyon, we rode there Monday and had breakfast at the volunteer fireman breakfast. Absolutely the best biscuits and sausage gravy I’ve ever had. Vanoker Canyon is very gentle ups and down with lots of large sweeping turns thru some of the most scenic country in America.

Just Ride

News says he has canceled all his concerts until his broken shoulder heals and the stitches in head come out. Ticket master is refunding tickets.

    • In the end, LMIT met his karmic retribution when he got kicked in the head by a mule and came back as D2E.

    • Well said Del! There weren't issues till he decided to stick his nose in it. The mod for that thread did just fine.
    • I meant harmless in the sense they don't kill fish. With that being said, I'm sure the host fish would prefer that it not have a lamprey attached to it, but at the end of the day, the fish will live...literally. Lampreys are very common in the upper St. Croix River system. I see them attached to redhorse all the time, which makes sense, as redhorse are by far the most abundant fish in the system. If the lampreys haven't "crashed" that system after several thousand years of coexistence, I'm liking gamefishes' chances for the next several thousand years also 
    • John Podesta May Have Violated Federal Law By Not Disclosing 75,000 Stock Shares 3/26/2017 Daily Caller   John Podesta, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 2016 national campaign chairman, may have violated federal law by failing to disclose the receipt of 75,000 shares of stock from a Kremlin-financed company when he joined the Obama White House in 2014, according to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group. Joule Unlimited Technologies — financed in part by a Russian firm —  originally awarded Podesta 100,000 shares of stock options when in 2010 he joined that board along with its Dutch-based entities: Joule Global Holdings, BV and the Stichting Joule Global Foundation. When Podesta announced his departure from the Joule board in January 2014 to become President Obama’s special counsellor, the company officially issued him 75,000 common shares of stock. The Schedule B section of the federal government’s form 278 which — requires financial disclosures for government officials — required Podesta to “report any purchase, sale or exchange by you, your spouse, or dependent children…of any property, stocks, bonds, commodity futures and other securities when the amount of the transaction exceeded $1,000.”   Podesta’s form 278 Schedule B is blank regarding his receipt of any stock from any company. Liberals and conservatives alike tell TheDCNF Podesta should have disclosed the stock. “Well Podesta should certainly have been more upfront in filling this out.  Clearly, it should have been fully disclosed,” said Craig Holman, a lobbyist for the liberal group Public Citizen which was founded by Ralph Nader.  “That’s the point of the personal financial disclosure forms, especially for anyone entering the White House,” he told TheDCNF in an interview. “If the transfer of stock took place, it had to be disclosed,” added former U.S. Attorney Joseph DiGenova in an interview. “If he didn’t, clearly it’s a violation.”   OH, MY...   And there is soo much more to this story...   Absolute criminals...   Link
    • Schumer goes off on Trump supporter at NYC restaurant, witness says Published March 27, 2017 New York Post   Witness: Schumer went off on Trump supporter at restaurant Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., caused a scene at a Manhattan restaurant when he began yelling at a wealthy and well-connected Donald Trump supporter that the POTUS is “a liar.” Schumer, the top Senate Democrat, lost his cool on Sunday night at Upper East Side restaurant Sette Mezzo, according to witnesses. He was dining with friends when he encountered Joseph A. Califano Jr. — the former U.S. secretary of health, education and welfare under President Jimmy Carter and domestic policy adviser to President Lyndon B. Johnson — and his wife, Hilary, who were having a quiet dinner. Onlookers said Schumer was incensed that Hilary — the daughter of William S. Paley, the founder and chairman of CBS — had voted for Trump, even though her husband, Joseph, is a well-known Democrat. One witness said of the restaurant rant, “They are a highly respected couple, and Schumer made a scene, yelling, ‘She voted for Trump!’ The Califanos left the restaurant, but Schumer followed them outside.” On the sidewalk, Schumer carried on with his fantastical filibuster: “ ‘How could you vote for Trump? He’s a liar!’ He kept repeating, ‘He’s a liar!’ ” Hilary confirmed the confrontation, telling Page Six, “Sen. Schumer was really rude . . . He’s our senator, and I don’t really like him. Yes, I voted for Trump. Schumer joined us outside and he told me Trump was a liar. I should have told him that Hillary Clinton was a liar, but I was so surprised I didn’t say anything.”   Sheezus....   What an unhinged lunatic a-hole....   Could you imagine if this had been paul ryan acting in this way ??   I think a knee to the groin was in order..
