The Official Shark Week IX Announcement Thread


For those who haven't heard, Smarty (Carol Burks) and I (Scott Wilson) are hosting SWIX in August, 2019. Host hotel reservation details will soon be posted here and on the FB group page. Moving forward, we will post all details on both locations to ensure the word spreads as efficiently as possible.

Well we have the right two guys for the job that's for sure.

Maybe we can ride together Scott, Carol, for next years Shark Event from Texas.

Yup! Our dates are for the week after the rally in Sturgis when beer, shirts, and other related goodies are back to reasonable prices and when people can actually ride faster than parade speed. We recognize that many will never to go the rally due to the crowds, costs, etc, and therefore might not ever get to experience all the iconic rides the area offers. Our goal is to bring the Shark Week experience and camaraderie to the Black Hills. If you've never been to Shark Week, you won't want to miss this one.


Stay tuned/subscribe to this thread.

I would be interested in sticking around Sturgis after the rally (we usually show up before the official start date anyway) for this. Sounds like a great time. And ripping around on those roads with less traffic will be quite enjoyable

well dang. I teach school and would have to report by that time. Had it been the week before the rally, I may have been able to pull it off. Been wanting to try one of these meets out anyway.

Might be interesting to see what the cost for some of the shirts and stuff would be after the rally. May get some bargains.

Believe me, we tried for the week before. Vendors and media arrive that week and we had no guarantee of any reasonable quantity of rooms. The room rates for those we could secure were way beyond most of our crowd's finances.

Totally understand all that.
And you can’t schedule to everyone’s needs.

I do plan to be at Sturgis starting about Thursday before through about Monday or Tuesday. Will have to race home to start school. (It probably starts that Wednesday)
