Brookings is a great trip from Sioux Falls. 50 miles north of Sioux Falls.

Nick's Hamburgers - old fashioned. bet you can't eat just one. last time I was there, I ate 6 aaaah doubles. http://nickshamburgers.com/
SDSU Diary Barn - beats DQ 1,000 times over. It is a farm college with their own dairy. yea. think old fashioned milk shakes. banana splits? https://www.sdstate.edu/ds/icecream/
SDSU is a great site to visit anyway.
Oak wood Lake State Park - 18 miles north of Brookings. http://www.stateparks.com/oakwood_la...th_dakota.html

Lots of small towns to ride through on the way back.
See all the International Harvester Dealerships that are closed.
Buy some gas from a gas station that their pumps don't go over a $1.00 per gallon. The attendant has to get out his pencil and do the math.
See a kid riding his bicycle with a card stuck in the spokes cuz they don't know what Netflix is.

Not even gonna mention the corn fed South Dakota born girls in short shorts. http://img2-2.timeinc.net/people/i/2...intosh-600.jpg

Were you expecting a different picture in the short shorts?

The Sioux Falls, falls are great. The Dell Rapids, rapids are worthy of a trip. There is a nice swimming hole in the dells that the locals hang out in.

I know that the riders of Sioux Falls will show us some great rides that I never thought of.

The damn tour?

I am looking forward to the ride there and the ride back. If any members from the Pacific Northwest are doing any preliminary planning and looking for another rider (who might be compatible) then send me a PM. I am just putting this on my calendar.

My only other planned event so far for 2016 is the Run for the Wall. Same thing applies here, if you think we could survive and thrive on a trip like that together, send me a PM.

I set and break camp, every day. I prepare my own food and I am never in a rush. If carving the country side is your liking, see you when I get there. I read the mailboxes.... in a spirited manner. I will be on my "new to me" 2002 ABS 1800.

I will be camping at my brother's place in Sioux Falls. He has a big back yard and I have yet to clear an all out invite, but if you are riding with me, you would be treated like family and welcomed.

I have one more update on my trip plans then if anyone wishes to contact me about stuff, please do so via PM.

I spoke to my brother about camping in his back yard. He has enough room for about 5 tents and 5 motorcycle riders. I wish to reserve those spots for forum members who are traveling with me on our way there. Currently, I have one other rider coming from the Pacific Northwest, so that would leave room for 3 other members to join in. 5 motorcycles is about the maximium I feel comfortable traveling with anyways. However, if camping for free in someone's back yard during Nassir sounds like something you might be interested in, PM me for information. There could be free space available.

NOTE: of course you don't have to camp in someone's back yard to make the trip from here to there with us. "Ride your own ride."

wow! I just called the motel to try to book a room... twice... and both times I got this extremely lethargic person on the other side who seemed entirely unable to communicate in any meaningful manner.

Pretty high I'd guess?

Gonna call for a third time tomorrow during the business day....

Creepy!

one of the girls who works there, is not all that understandable in English....

I don't know which one she is, but call back and get the owner or the other gal...
I got the "bad gal" twice, and just called back until I got an English speaking person.

Too bad Jerry and Cindy's place is on the other side of the state, as camping there would be a cool experience for anyone..
