"Can any good come out of Nazareth" John 1:46

Headwaters

Allen, SD

Headwaters: the source of a river or stream.  It is the farthest place in that river from its estuary or joining of another river.  Headwaters is the beginning.  It is the starting point.  It is a tiny stream from which a larger network of streams are born.  It is by nothing short of a Divine Coincidence that NazMoto should have its origin here, in Allen SD. 

   This year’s ride to the Pine Ridge Indian reservation is open to all. Know that this is a long trip with 2 long days riding out and 2 riding back. While we enjoy riding with any make and model bike, make sure you and your bike are up to the challenge.
             
(Note, we typically ride 150 - 170 miles then find a gas stop. We stop for about 20 min to fuel, stretch, get snack/drink, use facilities, do pushups, etc. Around lunch time we stop for 45min. we try to find a truckstop, so you have options for food if you didn’t pack food.)

To cover the cost of lodging, food while on the reservation, projects, & fuel for chase vehicle, we are asking everyone to pay ~$300 upfront.

     Payment schedule is as follows:

  •          Initial nonrefundable payment of $150 is due by July 10th.
  •          Final payment of ~$150 - $200 due by August 14. Final payment will depend on number of riders and final project list.

Based on previous rides we estimate your personal costs to be ~$380

(You control this cost. You are responsible for your gas, food while traveling, personal snacks/food you may want while in Allen, and any costs during a sightseeing day.)

Also note that there are no food options in Allen. Nearest town with food is 17 miles away.
