We live about 8 mi. north of I-90. On these quiet August days we can hear the bikes rumbling along for several weeks. Living about 35 mi from SD, tens of thousands come from the east heading west and then a week or so later they are headed east again. Rod.

I live 3 mi into NE (Lorenzo NE)north of CO. on Hwy 19 Bikes here come by my place on to 385 N to Sturgis SD. We don"t get as many as I25 north does as NE has a Helment LAW. Bikers that go to Sturgis don"t like Helments. so they avoid NE as much as possible.

I can hear them on Hi 14, 5 miles to the north. The trend has changed over the years. I think just as many go in fancy motor homes with the bikes in trailers now.

Hi Darrel, The trend has changed. 25 yr ago we would pack the kids in the car and drive into Worthington to watch all the bikers pull off the Interstate to fuel up. So many different people and bikes everyone enjoyed it. Now most are on trailers. The entertainment factor is mostly gone. Rod.

Tom, I thought you were close to I-90 and that is about as close as it gets. You should open a campground on a few acres for a couple weeks each August. Could call it "Nutty's Place" think of the rent per acre you would receive. A big sign with a couple tractors parked near by, Sounds like fun! Trouble is none of my great ideas ever seem to work out, lol. Rod.

I live in Mitchell,SD and mom and dad live 5miles south of I-90 so we see the bikers go through every year. One year I sold all of my alfalfa to one of the local colonies and they took several semi loads of it down the interstate during bike week, from what the drivers told me apparently the bikers didnt seem to appreciate getting hay dust in the face lol.

I got back last night. Didnt see too awful many bikes as i headed south from sioux falls. I rode there and back thru nebraska once and dont care for that experience again. Its not just the helmet law. Cant explain it. Just didnt care for it. I90 is great tho. Ive always wondered how close i was to many board members along the way. Noticed several case tractors on the trip. One was pushing a burning semi away from the burning haypile that was shoved off along the side of i90. Id say it was a bad day for schmidt bros from sioux falls. Nice 730 w loader crossing over i 90 into town (forget which one) thurs afternoon. The diversity in agriculture practices type and scale along the 850 miles fascinate me. Sorry got off topic. Lots of bikes on trailers. More bikes than bikers. I trailer mine.... As in i pull a trailer! Had most trouble with inconsiderate cagers in kc

Was it this year that you saw a Schmidt farms semi on fire? A couple years ago they burnt up a truck with a load of my hay on it on I-90 somewhere between Mitchell and SF.

The last one they had burn up the driver didn't even know it was on fire until people pulled up beside him honking and waving at him, apparently never bothered to check his mirrors because it was fully engulfed in flames by the time people got his attention, they managed to dolly the trailer down and save the truck that time.

The entertainment was there when I was trucking. Lots of the gals on the back would pull up their tops when they went past me. Some great views!!

They buy and sell alot of hay to feed yards and dairies in MN and IA. As for the winters it depends on the year some years can be a real PIA but other years I think you guys get more snow down in KS get more than we do.
