THIS IS NOT THE SAME AS THE NOMINATION FOR THE IRON BUTT ASOCIATION (IBA).
THIS IS FOR MIKE KNEEBONE'S NOMINATION, IN ADDITION TO THE IBA NOMINATION.

Michael Kneebone has been nominated to the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum Hall of Fame. I have sent my letter of support for this nomination and am asking that you, too, send a letter supporting the inclusion of the I Michael Kneebone in the Sturgis Motorcycle Hall of Fame. Send your letter of support to The Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame, attention Sarah, 999 Main Street, Sturgis, SD 57785. Sarah's email address is [email protected] You do NOT need to be a member of the Museum to weigh-in on this nomination, so please do so! This year there are many nominees and competition is the name of the game. In 1984, 10 riders rode the first Iron Butt Rally. With Michael Kneebone's leadership there are now over 75,000 members in the IBA.

Sent my own personalized nomination letter too. I cannot think of anyone else who would deserve to be inducted into a motorcycling hall of fame more than Michael Kneebone.

:cool:

FYI: Voting closed 12/31/19. I was too late, but was told Mike received a lot of nominations. No telling what the outcome will be.

I submitted a nomination and got a nice note back thanking me for the input. Recently I got a note informing me that Mike had not been inducted this year but that his nomination would continue for 2020.

Having reviewed the museum info posted about the people inducted, I could not understand why Mike had not been a shoe-in? Also, I got the impression that the IBA as an entity might be eligible for induction. No idea what requirements need to be met to make that happen?

Next time I route myself thru the Blackhills, I intend to visit the museum and ask somebody the why of all this.

I suspect, having a limited amount of time to garner support for both nominations... :confused:

A visit to the museum is worth your time. In the "long distance" world, they have Dave Zien's 1,000,000 mile motorcycle and Dave Barr's bike he rode around the world. If you don't know who Dave Barr is, look him up.
