Leah Visits the Evel Knievel Museum

1On her way toward Oklahoma to visit friends and leave her beloved Scout for the winter, Leah Misch stopped in to see the new Evel Knievel Museum in Topeka Kansas. Housed in a new facility adjacent to historic Harley-Davidson, the museum opened this past June and garnered visitors from all 50 states and a dozen foreign countries in just three months.

 

Visitors see Evel’s motorcycles, leathers and helmets along with dozens of personal effects including his casts and gold checkbook. Plus:

  • Fully-restored Mack Truck Rig “Big Red” – cab, dressing room and trailer
  • Snake River Experience Room featuring the actual X-2 Sky Cycle
  • “Plan A Jump” interactive wall
  • Broken Bones interactive touch screens including Evel’s actual X-rays
  • Virtual Reality Jump Experience
  • “Big Red” Gallery with restoration film, crew recollections
  • 1970’s-era movie theatre with marquee, seating and décor
  • Film and crash videos of many famous jumps
  • The kid’s room, the garage, the family room
  • Children’s letters to Evel from decades ago
  • Many never-before-seen personal items and images7

It’s the one and only exhibition showcasing the world’s largest collection of authentic artifacts that belonged to the most legendary, death-defying daredevil of all time! The Museum’s extensive and complete displays reflect the impact of a man who did the unthinkable and, some said, the impossible. They were tumultuous times in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. America needed a hero – and Evel Knievel gave us one!

Enjoy Leah’s pictures and visit the Museum yourself.654 3 2

MUSEUM ON THE MOVE

1Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall Of Fame Expands To Two Campuses
 
Sturgis, South Dakota, October 24, 2017 – The Sturgis Rally may be over, but things are just getting started for the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame. The Museum is set to double within three years, and the Hall of Fame portion will have its own campus. Meanwhile the Main Street location will get a major revitalization, courtesy of generous donations from supporters, Board members and the Law Tigers.
“It’s been a busy summer,” says Sturgis Motorcycle Museum Executive Director Myrick Robbins. “Scott Peterson, of Scott Peterson Ford, has donated land for the second, larger Museum site,” notes Robbins. “This site will be off of Exit 32 and visible from the I-90. The Law Tigers are jump starting the building fund to ensure that the aggressive expansion plans are met, donating more than $100K to our capital campaign building fund,” he adds. “Our Museum is growing and within three years, the Hall of Fame portion will have its own campus near exit 32.”
“We are honored to be part of motorcycle history,” said Ari Levenbaum, on behalf of The Law Tigers, a professional association of motorcycle injury lawyers who help riders every day. “There are some amazing motorcycles on display and incredible heritage that needs to be shared with riders.”
In addition to the donation of the site by Scott Peterson and the funding from the Law Tigers, Board Member Bruce Eide generously donated the fees for the architectural design firm, 4FrontDesign, Inc. They have completed the preliminary plans for the second site. The larger building will house the Hall of Fame, pre-1938 collection and various galleries. “The overall facility will give the Museum space to offer educational programs, meeting and event space and a place for the community and visitors to experience motorcycling, learn about the great people of the Hall of Fame and their heritage,” notes Robbins.
Key features include:
  • Permanent Collections Displays
  • Featured Galleries
  • Cafe
  • Meeting Rooms
  • Gift Shop
  • Restoration and Training Areas
  • Various outdoor areas
“With the donations continuing to roll in, we have continued the expansion plans for the current Main and Junction through the 1500 Rider program,” says Robbins. “With the building maintenance up to speed and the permit process in motion, we have been working toward the expansion to continue to provide the downtown anchor and connection to the most famous Main Street in Motorcycling.”
Completion for Campus 1 – “Legendary Main Street” – is July 2019. Campus 2 -“Heritage Hill” – is planned to be completed in time for the 80th Anniversary in 2020. “Your support is key in getting these important programs finished.  We are proud to be supported by you and the community of riders.”

HARLEY-DAVIDSON OFFICIAL SPONSOR OF CLASS OF 2017

30The Motor Company Rumbles Into The Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall Of Fame

32

Sturgis, South Dakota, July 6, 2017 – For many, “Harley-Davidson” isn’t a name or a brand, it is a way of life. So it is with great honor that the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum announces The Harley-Davidson® Motor Company as an official sponsor of the Hall Of Fame Class of 2017. In addition to supporting the induction ceremony on August 9th, Harley-Davidson has also commissioned a series of videos recognizing the Class of 2017 and Lifetime Achievement Award winner, Willie G. Davidson.
“Harley-Davidson logos symbolize more than just quality and heritage,” says Myrick Robbins, Executive Director for the Museum. “They stand for something important enough that people tattoo it on their skin. While it is difficult to express in words, the impact is felt in the soul.”
The brand also has a direct connection with not only Willie G. Davidson (son of former Harley-Davidson president, William H. Davidson, and the grandson of one of the original founders, William A. Davidson), but with most of the Class of 2017, particularly Jim Thiessen and Terry Vance. JIMS® products help H-D mechanics and riders set records and Terry Vance smashes records with the world champion Harley-Davidson® Screamin’ Eagle®/Vance & Hines drag racing team.33
“Riders, record breakers, racers and certified Harley-Davidson mechanics around the world trust and use JIMS products on a daily basis,” adds Robbins. “The company has focused specifically on Harley since the 1970s.”
In addition to fielding the defending Vance & Hines NHRA Pro Stock championship team, Terry Vance also helps Harley-Davidson in other ways. “Although he claims to be retired, Terry took over operational duties for Harley-Davidson’s Factory 2017 American Flat Track Series team, a full-time job in itself.”
To ensure credit goes where credit is due, Todd Huffman and Pipeline Digital Media have once again been retained to produce the video component of the program. Producer of the acclaimed Epic Ride and The Motocross Files TV series, countless commercials and PENTON The John Penton Story and The Carlsbad USGP: 1980 feature films, Huffman has a unique affinity for the history of the motorcycle industry.
“Having Sturgis Hall of Famer Dave Despain narrating the bio is like watching an episode of MotoWorld… only better,” says Robbins. “We sincerely appreciate Harley-Davidson’s generous support of the video bios and for access to the phenomenal archival materials on Willie G.”

ULTIMATE FREEDOM FIGHTER HONORED BY STURGIS MOTORCYCLE MUSEUM

1Biker, Diplomat, MRF Champion & ABATE Founder Michael “Balls” Farabaugh Named 2017 Freedom Fighter Award
2

Sturgis, South Dakota, June 5, 2017 – In keeping with the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum’s mission to Honor the Rider, the special “Freedom Fighter” award recognizing an individual who has fought to protect the rights of motorcyclists was instituted in 2001. The Freedom Fighter for 2017 is posthumous recognition of Michael “Balls” Farabaugh lifetime of protecting motorcyclist’s right.
“Michael is the original freedom fighter,” says Tigra Tsujikawa, Marketing & Development Director for the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall Of Fame. “He co-founded ABATE of Indiana, the Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) and launched the annual Meeting Of The Minds conference. As the long-time Executive Director of ABATE, Balls was respected for his honesty and integrity by the biker community – as a 30-year member of the American Motorcycle Association’s Board of Directors, Mr. Farabaugh was able to bring the OEMs and the politicians to the table,” says Tsujikawa.

As passionate as Farabaugh was when it came to motorcycle rights organizations, he was equally committed to rider safety. “He successfully lobbied many state legislatures into giving publicly funded rider training parity with drivers ed. Michael graduated from the first Motorcycle Safety Foundation Chief Instructor Program in 1980 and he and his wife Debby, also an MSF instructor, taught survival skills to literally thousands of riders and instructor trainees over the years.”

In his spare time, he organized motorcycle-related charity events. “In typical fashion, Balls became chairman of the Miracle Ride Foundation and coordinated events that generated more than $2.5 million to the Paraplegic Foundation and Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis, as well as MDA.”

“My goal was to make motorcycling better for the next generation,” Farabaugh once told the AMA. “Let’s make it safe and easier to learn to ride. If we as motorcyclists are doing it ourselves, we have a hand in the direction motorcycling takes.” Before his untimely passing earlier this year, the long-time motorcycle safety, education and rider rights advocate had most recently been appointed the first director of Lucas Oil’s newly formed Motorcycle Division.

“All of our honorees – past and present- are deserving, but Michael Farabaugh is the ultimate Freedom Fighter,” declares Tsujikawa. Initiated in 2001, The Freedom Fighter award recognizes those individuals who have made sacrifices to protect the rights of those who ride. These men and women serve diligently, humbly and quietly so that we may enjoy the liberties that many of us take for granted.

“Join us in honoring Michael’s memory as well the Class Of 2017 Hall of Fame inductees,” says Tsujikawa. The Sturgis Motorcycle Museum Hall Of Fame Induction ceremony presented by Strider is being held August 9th at the Lodge at Deadwood in Deadwood, South Dakota. Breakfast tickets are available for a $45 donation, tables of eight for $350. Tickets are available by calling the Museum at 605.347.2001 or they can be purchased online at:
http://www.sturgismuseum.com/shop/hall-fame-breakfast 

About The Freedom Fighter Award: The Freedom Fighters Hall of Fame recognizes the sacrifices individuals across the nation, and world, have made to protect the rights of motorcyclists through their efforts in the political arena and in grassroots motorcyclist rights organizations. It is the goal of the museum to help recognize these exceptional and deserving people. There are no restrictions on who may submit nominations by the January 10, 2017, however the Freedom Fight is not necessarily awarded every year. All nomination files are reviewed by the Hall of Fame committee that is made up of the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum’s board of directors, its Executive Director and staff directors.

About The Museum: The Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame’s mission is to collect, preserve and interpret the history of motorcycling; honor those who have made a positive and significant impact on the sport and lifestyle; and pay tribute to the heritage of the Sturgis Rally. Our vision is to continue as a world-class museum offering comprehensive and educational exhibits and showcasing rare and unusual motorcycles significant to our history and our sport. The Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame stands out because of the fact that we not only document the history of the machines, we document the history of the people who have shaped and changed the sport and lifestyle. This will be a resource and inspiration for future generations. Honor the Ride… Build the Legacy!
