Last year was a big year for Sturgis Bike Week, being the 70th anniversary and all. This year is 71 for Sturgis, and not that we really need a reason to celebrate, but if you’re looking for one, this is a really big year for the Buffalo Chip. That’s right, the Chip is turning 30 this year and they’re celebrating in a big way - the same way that made it a legendary party experience in the first place. Plus, one lucky individual will win the custom Victory Kingpin 8-Ball pictured above. Read on for details:
The Legendary Buffalo Chip ® Thanks Customers, Past and Present with “30 Years Strong – Sturgis Buffalo Chip ” Bike Give-Away during the 71st annual Sturgis Rally.
Sturgis, SD (April 21, 2011) – Known as the largest music festival in motorcycling, the Legendary Buffalo Chip has teamed up with GEICO for a special “30 Years Strong – Sturgis Buffalo Chip” bike give-away during this year’s 71st annual Sturgis Rally. Ever since the first riders rode through its “Welcome Home Bikers” gates, The Chip has enjoyed a hard-riding love affair with motorcyclists from around the world.
Victory Motorcycles, another one of The Chip’s official sponsors, provided one of their classic, Kingpin 8-Ball cruisers for renowned builders Klock Werks Kustom Cycle from Mitchell, SD to customize for the giveaway. The owners of Klock Werks, Brain and Laura Klock saw the potential for their daughters Erika and Karlee to design, build and fabricate a mini-bagger with help from parts sponsors Bassani Exhaust, Gearwrench, Interstate Batteries and Sportech. The finished motorcycle will encompass the Legendary Buffalo Chip’s annual celebration of music, motorcycles, freedom and camaraderie.
Fans of the Legendary Buffalo Chip can register to win the Klock Werks customized Victory Kingpin by clicking HERE to the Buffalo Chip’s official website and filling out a contest form. One lucky winner will be chosen from a group of finalists live on The Chip’s main stage Friday, August 12th to highlight the Sturgis Rally activities.
