SW V Omaha, Ne (?)

Well I, cnidog and Fahred have been discussing sw v. It seems that with shark weeks popularity, we have to plan two years in the making! We have talked to, rode thru and discussed local attractions. We feel like our area has a lot to offer and local establishments want to help too. We obviously need your feedback but were preparing for a full scale proposal during st George.

I know some of you have said that we have nothing but cows and "can watch our dog run away for three days" but we beg to differ! We already have 6 rides(3 long, 3short) plus dinner rides and several hotels including one that has a bar called the "Shark Club".

Omaha has a large zoo with a world class aquarium, 3 Harley dealers, plenty of river valley riding with twisty hills and were only a 1 day ride to sturgis!

Uncle Rat Fink wants you for SHARK WEEK 5!

P.S. let the battle begin ONG

What he said!!! And don't forget our central location - no cross country ride to get here for anybody, except those Alaskans coming across Canada. I'm in and I'm already part of the planning committee.

All this talk about 5, if I ain't mistaken 4 comes before 5 and as far as I know ain't nuthin' been decided where it's gonna be yet. I know Shark Week is a lot of work and each year it may be slightly bigger but not exponentially so. As its been pointed out on here Shark Week this year probably won't be a whole lot bigger then last years. Lead time is important but we ain't exactly talking Sturgis as far as size of an event.

Its been east, middle and west so I think next years is still very much in the air depending on who makes the trip and whats proposed at SW III.

Just my .02

Bikes Blues and BBQ Ride Maps

Pig Trail Harley-Davidson Ride Maps

Biker Budz Highly Recommended

Biker Budz Don't Miss

Oh, I'm sorry, did I post this in the wrong thread Northwest Arkansas Ride maps have been posted all over the internet, and they are world famous. And there is always Branson, if you are into that sort of entertainment and/or shopping.

In theory, Theory and Reality are the same. In reality, they are different.

Could be a good road trip and hit Sturgis area on the way back, which has always been on the bucket list.

Thanks mutter! We really appreciate the support and well wishes!

To clear up a couple things, yes we understand that SW IV has not hit yet but were planning for V? We(cnidog, fahred and I) discussed this and we felt that A. northwoods_maine technically has first dibs since shark week rotates coasts, B. No one else has volunteered to host it anywhere else and C. We honestly want to see that area of the country! Now if things come up and he can"t host or decides against it, then we are prepared to pitch Omaha for SW IV instead of V.

Secondly, this isn't "if he can do it, we can too!" type of deal. We've been working on this for awhile now, ONG just decided to draw first blood... so to speak lol

And third... we don't thread-bomb with links to our proposal (sorry tim, you know I had to poke ya!)

Anyway, here is a teaser for our area!!

Loess Hills Scenic Byway

Gavins Point Dam

Wells Blue Bunny Tours (that's right, I said ice cream tour!)

Old Market (Hey,we need cobblestones, right hutmo?)

That's just a taste of what we can offer too! Theres lots more to come people. SW III is not less than 2 months away, so lets salivate on all this in the proceeding weeks to come and then let the voting decide.
