Chip5Sturgis Buffalo Chip’s Moto Stampede Race Series Expands Diverse Schedule of Races

The epicenter of rally events adds multiple days of racing action at the Largest Music Festival in Motorcycling.

More adrenaline-packed racing events have this year been added to the Sturgis Buffalo Chip Moto Stampede race series at the premier action center of the rally. Six of the motorcycle and music festival’s nine days offers thrilling racing from American Flat Track and RSD Super Hooligan to street drags, Dirt Riot Off-Road, and AMA Supermoto.

Ozzy OsbourneOzzy Osbourne Choses to Perform at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip in 2017

Heavy metal royalty to grace fans with unforgettable performance on Wednesday, Aug. 9.

There is only one Ozzy Osbourne, a multi-platinum recording artist, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, founding member of Black Sabbath and Ozzfest, known to worshipers worldwide as the Godfather of Heavy Metal. On Wednesday, Aug. 9 he will be astonishing fans at The Largest Music Festival in Motorcycling on the Sturgis Buffalo Chip’s Wolfman Jack Stage. Osbourne chose to perform at the hub of the rally, the Sturgis Buffalo Chip, as one of just a handful of shows on his first solo U.S. tour in six years. See the official band announcement video by clicking here.

“You never know what to expect with Ozzy, but you can be sure it will be over the top.” said Rod Woodruff, President of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. “He puts on an incredible show and this is one of those performances you just can’t miss. You may not have another opportunity to see the legendary Ozzy Osbourne live on stage. I wonder if he’s still biting the heads off bats?”

Osbourne’s music is as relevant today as it was four decades ago when he joined Black Sabbath. Since the 1979 release of his first solo album, “Blizzard of Ozz” and subsequent “Diary of a Madman,” Osbourne has continued to amaze fans with his heavy metal wizardry. In June 2013, after more than three decades of waiting, original Black Sabbath members released their critically acclaimed album “13,” which entered the charts at no. 1 in 13 countries. In 2014, the group won a GRAMMY Award in the Best Metal category for the single “God is Dead?” Later that year Ozzy was presented with the “Global Icon” award at the 2014 Europe Music Awards in Glasgow.

As the largest and most easily accessed concert and camping venue east of Sturgis, concert attendees not already camping at the Buffalo Chip will be able to access the free parking area at the east gate, about 5 miles from exit 37 on I-90. Passes purchased for Wednesday, Aug. 9 include the Roland Sands Design Super Hooligan races presented by Indian Motorcycle and the Buffalo Chip Street Drag Invitational with Crazy John both taking place in the Chip’s amphitheater that afternoon. “Young Blood/Old Iron”, the 2017 Motorcycles as Art exhibit curated by Michael Lichter will be open and free to the public.

Adventure to SturgisIndian Motorcycle & Veterans Charity Ride to Sturgis Announces Third Annual Motorcycle Therapy Adventure to Sturgis Motorcycle Rally

Nomination Program to Award Post-9/11 Veterans With Epic Adventure via “Hero’s Ride of a Lifetime”

Indian Motorcycle, America’s First Motorcycle Company, has again joined forces with “Veterans Charity Ride to Sturgis,” a nine-day journey that provides veterans a chance to use motorcycle therapy as a way to decompress from the challenges of post-war life. Through the “Hero’s Ride of a Lifetime” program, well deserving veteran heroes can be nominated to join the ride from now until May 21.

Rolling out of Los Angeles on July 28 on Indian motorcycles, trikes and Champion Sidecars, the ride provides participating veterans the opportunity to work toward overcoming their post-war challenges while out on the open road. Riding through the most scenic back roads of the western United States, veterans will not only experience the great outdoors and the beauty this country has to offer, but also make stops to meet with other veterans, supporters, riders, and participate in various adjacent adventures. Upon arrival in Sturgis on August 5, the group will be treated to a special “Heroes Welcome” before taking part in a week of activities that further solidify the brotherhood and sisterhood formed during the ride.

Adventure to Sturgis“We’ll spend over a week riding on America’s most beautiful roads, getting to know each other and helping each other through Motorcycle Therapy,” said David Frey, Veterans Charity Ride Founder. “The shared experience of serving brings us together, veteran to veteran, to help each other heal.”

Twenty deserving veterans and veteran mentors will join the Veterans Charity Ride to Sturgis in 2017. Additionally, organizers are offering two post-9/11 veteran heroes the chance to participate in the ride via the Hero’s Ride of a Lifetime program, which enables the public to nominate these two veterans. One space will be given to an ambulatory veteran motorcycle rider (proof of motorcycle license endorsement and sufficient riding experience required) and the other space will be given to a severely wounded or amputee veteran to ride as a sidecar passenger (no motorcycle experience required). Submissions are now being accepted online (here) with the selections to be announced July 4.

The Veterans Charity Ride to Sturgis was conceived and developed by veteran Army Paratrooper Dave Frey and Emmy Award-winning producer and director Robert Manciero of Full Vision Productions, leveraging the therapeutic effects of motorcycle riding to create an adventure of a lifetime for wounded veterans.

Adventure to SturgisPrimary sponsors of the Veterans Charity Ride to Sturgis include Indian Motorcycle and Champion Sidecars & Trikes, with additional sponsorship and support provided by Monster Energy Drink, Cycle Gear, Nordic Components, Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys, and the Sturgis Buffalo Chip.

“Indian Motorcycle has been a proud supporter of the Armed Forces dating back to its role as a military supplier during WWI,” said Reid Wilson, Indian Motorcycle Marketing Director. “It’s an honor to give back to our military veterans through our relationship with the Veterans Charity Ride to Sturgis and the incredible experience this ride provides.”

“Supporting our veterans by donating sidecars to accommodate amputee veterans in a safe, comfortable manner is something near and dear to our team and to me personally,” said Craig Arrojo, President of Champion Sidecars. “We are honored to be associated with such a worthy event, and we look forward to continuing our partnership with the Veterans Charity Ride for years to come.”

KuryakynKuryakyn, Sturgis Buffalo Chip Debut Signature Build At Donnie Smith Bike & Car Show

Kuryakyn and the Sturgis Buffalo Chip kicked off the Midwest’s biggest bike show with a bang, debuting the 2017 Rock, Rumble & Rebellion signature build in front of a packed house at the 30th annual Donnie Smith Bike & Car Show.

Representing seven days of electrifying racing in August at the Buffalo Chip Moto Stampede, the sleek, industrial appearance of the 2017 Harley-Davidson Street Glide strikes a balance of refinement and straight-up rawness.

“As an aftermarket company, we were honored to take on the challenge of representing the Buffalo Chip’s 35th anniversary last year with a bike build,” said Holger Mohr, Kuryakyn President. “As enthusiasts first and foremost, this year’s focus of bringing racing back to the Chip is equally exciting for us. The Kuryakyn design team came up with an authentic race theme that truly embodies the ‘rumble’ in Rock, Rumble and Rebellion. There’s no better way to introduce our newest products to core Kuryakyn customers, and we’re proud to do it alongside the Buffalo Chip on the biggest stage in the motorcycle industry.”Kuryakyn

One of the main focal points on the purpose-built bagger is the freshly reimagined Hypercharger ES air cleaner. Symbolizing the evolution of one of Kuryakyn’s most iconic products, the Hypercharger ES features a radical new design with state-of-the-art electronic throttle response butterfly engagement. The integrated servomotor actuates the butterflies with every twist of the throttle, creating an interactive experience with the motorcycle that’s unlike anything available.

Additionally, more than 35 Kuryakyn accessories are featured on the build including select pieces from the new Mesh and Riot collections, as well as the soon-to-be-released Precision line of engine chrome for the Milwaukee-Eight. Renowned custom shop Gilby’s Street Dept. of River Falls, Wis., laid down a monochromatic race-inspired paint theme that marries everything together to create a cohesive push-pull of mechanical grit and class.

Blink-182Blink-182 to Rock Sturgis Buffalo Chip August Music Festival with Reckless Abandon

Party All Night with the Kings of the Weekend

Fall in love with an energy-jammed rock show the likes of which is rarely seen when Blink-182 takes over the Sturgis Buffalo Chip on Thursday, Aug. 10, 2017. The California-based punk rock megastars’ show will follow Doug Danger’s Rattlesnake Jump and the George Thorogood concert during the Chip’s Freedom Celebration day, culminating a day filled with monumental events to create an experience that’ll have you saying, “I’m feeling this!”

Blink-182 is a band whose body of material masterfully blends the arts of crafting an unforgettable earworm and serving it up with a zany sense of humor. Monster hit songs like “All the Small Things,” “What’s My Age Again,” “First Date,” “The Rock Show” and “Dammit” exemplify this formula, keeping you laughing and rocking your ass off simultaneously. Conversely, tunes like “I Miss You,” “Adam’s Song,” and “Always” show you the band’s ability to stretch out musically and lyrically into more somber subject matter and experimental instrumentation. It’s this range of musicality that’s propelled the band’s album sales to over 50 million worldwide and contributed to their 2016 release, “California,” to be nominated for the 2017 Best Rock Album Grammy.

The Largest Music Festival in Motorcycling will flip the party into overdrive with Blink-182’s pop punk power. Are you ready to rage at this show? Reserve your passes today!

Yaffe_Through_The_YearsPaul Yaffe Celebrates 25 Years of Custom Motorcycle Building at Arizona Bike Week with Yaffe Through the Years Exhibition

A retrospective exhibit celebrating legendary custom motorcycle builder Paul Yaffe’s storied career will be on display at the Legends Pavilion for the duration of Arizona Bike Week 2017. Yaffe Through the Years, presented by Chuck Franklin Law, will showcase some of the most spectacular bikes and parts that Paul Yaffe has created during 25 years in the bike building and custom parts business.

“It all started with a love of motorcycles and a curiosity and desire to see what could be made of them,” says Paul. “I never would have guessed, when I first started experimenting in the mid eighties, that it would lead to where we are today.”

An amazing collection of some of Paul’s most memorable custom creations will be on display. Close to twenty motorcycles will provide a visual representation of the evolution of Paul’s career, from choppers to baggers to pro-streets, including both Discovery bikes (Phantom and Suzy-Q), Prodigy and Whitey (the bike he gave his bride her first ride on).

“We did a similar event as part of my birthday celebration late last year,” says Paul. “But we’ve expanded the concept, added about twice as many bikes, more photos, artwork and memorabilia. Plus, it will be really special to hold the event here in Phoenix, where I opened my first shop so many years ago.”

That first shop was American Legend Motorcycle Co., which opened in 1991. Since then, Paul has enjoyed one of the most illustrious and influential careers in motorcycle designing and building. Today, Paul Yaffe’s Bagger Nation, together with Paul Yaffe Originals, is recognized as one of—if not the—preeminent custom bike building outfits.

Rally goers attending Arizona Bike Week are encouraged to swing by the Pavilion and see firsthand and up close the beauty and power of Paul Yaffe’s metal masterpieces. Yaffe Through the Years is sponsored by Chuck Franklin LawPaul Yaffe’s Bagger NationMorongo Casino Resort and Spa and Arizona Bike Week.

About Paul Yaffe

Paul Yaffe has been designing and building custom motorcycles and motorcycle parts and accessories for over 30 years. In that time, he has won many awards, contests and honors, including three “World’s Most Beautiful Motorcycle” awards at the famous Oakland Roadster Show and two “Builder of the Year” and three “Trendsetter of the Year” honors from Easyriders Magazine. Paul opened his custom shop Paul Yaffe’s Bagger Nation (together with Paul Yaffe Originals) twenty-five years ago, and today his designs are recognized as being among the best and most sought after in the world.

Pappy HoelPappy Hoel Speed Classic

Flat Track Racing In Sturgis Comes Full Circle

On a dusty summer day in 1938, local Indian motorcycle dealer J.C. Hoel set the wheels of history in motion when he promoted a flat track race at the Sturgis Fairgrounds. History comes full circle this year as the Pappy Hoel Speed Classic returns to the same historic dir
t track where it all began. The event set for August 3-5, 2017 in downtown Sturgis kicks off a full week of racing during this year’s Rally.

Pappy Hoel

Pappy Hoel

“For Sturgis Rally founder J.C. ‘Pappy’ Hoel, the focus for the Rally was always on racing,” says Tigra Tsujikawa, Marketing & Development Director for the Sturgis Museum & Hall Of Fame. “From Johnny Spiegelhoff’s win on an Indian back in 1938 until today, flat track is an integral part of Sturgis history. We are honored to partner with the White Plate Motorcycle Club and Steve Nace Racing Promotions to present The Pappy Hoel Speed Classic, sanctioned by the American Motorcyclist Association.”

A full slate of racing with top Professional, Amateur and Vintage classes will be at the Sturgis Fairgrounds. As a three-time AMA Track Racing Organizer of the Year, Steve Nace Racing Promotions strives for perfection. “The objective of the AMA All-Star Series is to bring a professional show… we are known for having great tracks and rider safety is always our number one concern,” says Nace.

In 1938, the Jackpine Gypsies Motorcycle Club – coincidently founded by “Pappy” as the father of the Rally was affectionately known by racers and Rally goers alike – hosted a Gypsy Tour through South Dakota’s majestic Black Hills. The first “Black Hills Motor Classic” brought out 200 participants. Pappy and his wife, Pearl, provided camping behind their shop on Junction Avenue. “Weenies, Sloppy Joes, potato salad and watermelon for dessert, is what Pearl and the other Gypsies ladies served that first year,” says Tsujikawa. The riders washed their free meal down with iced tea or coffee, served in a tent behind the Hoel’s garage.

“The Pappy Hoel Speed Classic is the perfect way to start the 77th Sturgis Rally, but it is only part of the program,” she notes. Displays, entertainment, swap meet and more are being hosted by the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum throughout the week, culminating with the Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony presented by Strider Sports. “However, just like Pappy Hoel envisioned back in 1938, flat track racing is the focal point that brings it all together as we have come full circle.”

The Induction 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.

Fox-Run-MainThe Fox Run Story

By Leticia Cline
For Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys

It’s in our DNA to be part of a tribe, and back in our cave days, tribal culture was necessary for survival. Today we need it to be able to culturally grow. We constantly are searching for a connection to others to fulfill that sense of belonging. Every single one of us craves the feeling of being part of something bigger than ourselves but over time we have become disconnected from our tribe. When you are in a subculture you need that connection even more when you are a minority inside of a subculture.

We have a women’s movement upon us with no signs of slowing down. Sure, women have been riding motorcycles since motorcycles were created — but today women are the fastest growing segment in the industry. With any uprising there is a need to meet and support the cause, to connect with other like—minded people and to celebrate the dichotomy of freedom and unity.

Fox-Run-3-newOne of those gatherings is The Fox Run. An east coast camping and riding event geared towards women and all things two wheels. I have to be honest and admit that I have never been to a gathering of ladies like this, mostly because of my crazy scheduling but I want to know what drives these events and why they are so successful. So I sat down with Lucy Sarah, founder and one of the seven women who make it all happen, to ask her some questions and find out more. I ended up leaving with a new date scheduled on my events calendar for 2017 and an even greater appreciation for women riders.

Super HooliganRSD Super Hooligan National Championship Kicks Off

The “thrills and spills” of Street Bike Flat Track Racing, with the 2017 Super Hooligan National Championship Series (SHNC) sponsored by Indian Motorcycle, is off to a great start. We kicked the series off with The 1 Pro in Salem, OR followed by Mama Tried’s Flat Out Friday in Milwaukee, WI. It’s been a no-holds-barred battle to the stripe at these races and all on 500 lbs. of fury.

Couldn’t make the events? We’ve got you covered. Check out the recap below and the current SHNC Points Standings attached.

Round 1: The 1 Pro – Salem, Oregon

In association with the annual The 1 Moto Show custom motorcycle show in Portland, The 1 Pro flat track races commenced once again upon the 1/10th mile banked clay oval at Salem Indoor Speedway on Sunday. 1) Sammy Halbert #69 on a RSD Indian Scout, (2) Brad Spencer #7 from San Jose on his Sportster and (3) Andy DiBrino #14 from Portland piloting the See See Motorcycles XG750 made up the field and fought bar-to-bar, putting on a show for the spectators. Everyone was on the edge of their seats watching what was one of the best Super Hooligan races to date. (Click here for the full story)

Round 2: Mama Tried’s Flat Out Friday – Milwaukee, WI

Grassroots racing gets sticky and brings out over 10,000 fans to watch a bunch of motorcycles turn left and beat themselves up for bragging rights at the biannual Flat Out Friday races. This indoor Dr. Pepper syrup soaked oval concrete track is in the heart of blue collar America, Milwaukee, at The BMO Harris Bradley Center. It was Benny Carlson (#45) who took home the top spot aboard his XR1200, with some serious bar banging action to keep it up front against Andy DiBrino (#14) XG750 and Terry Vestal (#27) Sportster. (Click here for the full story)

NEXT UP: Round 3: AFT Atlanta Short Track – Woodstock, GA

The next round takes place March 25th in conjunction with American Flat Track on a 3/8-mile banked red clay oval at Dixie Speedway in Woodstock, GA. The Super Hooligan class will be filmed for tape-delayed TV telecast, along with AFT’s GNC1 & GNC2 professional races, by NBC Sports Network. You won’t want to miss the Hooligans getting Western in The South!

Stay tuned for more races across the country ranging from specialty bike shows and concerts to pro American Flat Track events and beach-side racing. The diversity promises a unique experience at each event. Watch Out America… this is Super Hooligan!

“Uncle Kracker” to Perform at Las Vegas BikeFest

Uncle Kracker“Uncle Kracker” to Perform Live, Saturday Night at 2017 Las Vegas BikeFest

Las Vegas BikeFest will go public March 1st announcing that American musician, singer and songwriter Uncle Kracker will play live at this year’s Las Vegas BikeFest on Saturday, October 7.

Before Uncle Kracker flew up the charts to #1 with “When the Sun Goes Down,” a duet with good friend Kenny Chesney, country music might’ve seemed an odd place to find the Detroit-based good-time Kid Rock alumni. But after a few summer tours with Chesney, the Top 10 “Smile,” and a pure country album produced by Keith Stegall, nobody doubts this feel-good rocker is exactly where he should be. Uncle Kracker’s deep melodies and sense of what the heartland means has made him a perfect fit in today’s post-rural realm of country music.

Initially known for his role as DJ in Kid Rock’s legendary Twisted Brown Trucker band, Uncle Kracker soon kicked off a stunning solo career of his own. The singer/songwriter made his solo debut with 2001’s #1 smash, “Follow Me,” kicking off a run of top 10 multi-format hits like “In A Little While,” “Smile,” and of course, 2003’s cover of Dobie Gray’s classic “Drift Away” which set a Billboard record for most weeks at #1 on any chart, topping their #1 run on the Adult Contemporary radio charts for a staggering 28 weeks.

Uncle Kracker is still having a blast playing sold out shows across the country, and fans undoubtedly will too when they see him on the road. His live show continues to get bigger and better with every tour. “It’s very interactive,” he says. “It’s meant to be a party, and I want everybody involved. Each time we go on stage, I want people to leave smiling.”

“We are very excited to have Uncle Kracker as our headline entertainment for this year’s rally. Whether he is singing a classic like “Drift Away” or his upbeat song, “Smile”, we know rally goers of all ages will enjoy the show,” states Mindi Cherry, Event Manager.

About Las Vegas BikeFest
The 17th annual Las Vegas BikeFest will be held October 5 – 8, 2017 in the heart of downtown Las Vegas on Fremont East.

The One Motorcycle ShowThe One Motorcycle Show 2017

By Alicia Mariah Elfving

For Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys

While it may not be the biggest custom motorcycle show in the country, it’s certainly one of the very best. The eighth annual One Motorcycle Show took place in Portland last weekend, featuring over 100 custom bikes from across the continent. Presented by See See and Harley-Davidson, the huge two story industrial building and lot was filled with art, bikes, food trucks, live music, and every type of motorcyclist imaginable.

In February of 2009, the crew at See See, a cafe and motorcycle shop in Portland, decided they wanted to start an event that went beyond the average motorcycle show. As their shop was buying cheap piles and turning them into fun, functional, and good looking machines on a budget, they decided there needed to be a place where pristine show bikes and budget builds could come together and bump tires.

The One Motorcycle ShowThe One Motorcycle Show was born.

If you could only have one motorcycle for the rest of your life… what would it be? The answer to some is a souped-up sport bike, to others a classic chopper that looks like it rolled right through time and space from the 1970s. There are no qualifying rules for motorcycles in the show; each year See See hand chooses 80+ builders with personal invitations. Big name companies like Roland Sands show off their most recent works, hobbyists bring their restorations and tinkerings, mad scientists display their rolling art… it’s absolutely a one of a kind experience with something for everyone.

MamaTried24th Annual Mama Tried Motorcycle Show to Feature More Than 100 Custom Bikes

Thousands expected in Milwaukee for a weekend including indoor flat track race, curated invitational show, Harley-Davidson Museum Pre-Party and Lakefront Ice Riding

The Mama Tried Motorcycle Show, presented by Harley-Davidson Motorcycles, announced today that it will hold its fourth annual exhibition Feb. 17-19 in Milwaukee, bringing thousands to the city in the dead of winter. The show will feature a full weekend of events, including the second annual Flat Out Friday indoor flat track motorcycle race, the Mama Tried Motorcycle Invitational with a special pre-party hosted by the Harley-Davidson Museum, and Slippery Sunday, an ice-riding competition on the Milwaukee Lakefront.

Flat Out Friday, will kick off the weekend at 7:00 p.m. Feb. 17 at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. More than 220 racers will compete in 11 classes ranging from amateur and professional to vintage, youth and hooligan. Racing on a flat track oval covered in Dr. Pepper syrup for traction, registered riders include flat track pro racer Jerad Mees, Hooligan riders Carey Hart and Mark “Rusty Butcher” Atkins and Milwaukee native Loyal Prach in the youth class. Special highlights will include an honor ride by the Milwaukee Police Department and Milwaukee-area veterans and the Charlotte Kainz Memorial Pro Race.

MamaTried3Immediately following Flat Out Friday, the Harley-Davidson Museum will host a Mama Tried pre-party featuring live music and refreshments. There will be a shuttle service to and from the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

The Mama Tried Invitational main event will be held from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Feb. 18 and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Feb. 19 at the Lindsay Building on South Second Street. The event showcases more than 150 motorcycles in a gallery-style setting, focused primarily on submissions from the Midwest. This year’s builder list features builds from Michael Lange, Scott T-Bone Jones, Louie Lauters, Keino Sasaki and Chase Stopnik.

The Slippery Sunday ice-riding competition will conclude the weekend. It will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Feb. 19 at McKinley Marina on Milwaukee’s Lakefront, pending weather and ice conditions.

MamaTried1The show and weekend of events are the brainchild of Scott Johnson of Fuel Café and Mojofuco Restaurants, Warren Heir of JRS Custom Fabrication and Jeremy Prach of Prach Promotions LLC embodying their cumulative lifelong experiences racing and riding in the Wisconsin motorcycle scene.

“When we started looking, we found so many great Midwestern bikes and builders that never get showcased,” explains Johnson. “Each of the last three years, we’ve been blown away by the level of enthusiasm to participate in, and to attend, a show in the dead of winter. We are especially excited for our second year of Flat Out Friday in Milwaukee, which previously hadn’t hosted an indoor race since 1980.”

“We’re really trying to bring together all types of motorcyclists and enthusiasts to reveal the tremendous cross-pollination of riding in Wisconsin,” Heir continued. “It’s amazing to see the excitement from people of all walks of life for this show and for the Flat Out Friday races.”

Last year, more than 9,000 attended the two-day show and more than 7,200 started the weekend off at last year’s Flat Out Friday, which was held at the UWM Panther Arena. This year’s event, held at the larger BMO Harris Bradley Center, is anticipated to bring in crowds of 10,000. Read More

American Barn Find, Planned for National Motorcycle Museum

e3b1ca1f-3487-45bf-be1d-6a277f6a5982NEW EXHIBIT: American Barn Find

You can be part of it, the new AMERICAN BARN FIND exhibition that’s in planning stages, set to open Spring 2017 at National Motorcycle Museum, Anamosa, Iowa.

36301a9d-1b94-47a0-aba9-686eae6ddef7It’s probably a favorite past-time of yours; while riding America’s country roads, you’ve peered into the hundreds of open barns and sheds while driving by. You might be saying to yourself, “I wonder what cool old motorcycle, or even car or truck is laying in that barn, neglected but still in pretty good shape?” And as we know, there’s enough interest that TV shows are built around following tips, contacting the owner, then getting a chance to look for barn finds.

With your help the National Motorcycle Museum will recreate the corner of a barn right in the Museum and show a random collection of stuff that just kind of “happened” there, items no longer needed, tossed out, then forgotten. But with each pre-World War II motorcycle that has been scrapped, the one “saved” in the barn is a step closer to being rare and over time, perhaps more sought after and therefore more valuable. Might be a Whizzer, an old high-wheel bicycle, leather saddlebags, a pudding bowl helmet, the toolbox crammed with antique wrenches, a gas pump,  even an old Harley or Indian, an engine, or just some interesting motorcycle parts. What have you got to loan or donate to the AMERICAN BARN FIND exhibit?9b52b8ec-fff8-4e2d-80e6-3c9364e1b79d

92e2148e-6afd-4a54-9922-1f75ab57b70bThe Museum staff will construct the corner of a barn in the Museum with old barn boards, beams; this will become a permanent display in the Museum. Then they will fill it with great old stuff, and this new exhibit will open during the National Motorcycle Museum’s June 3, 2017 Vintage Rally event in Anamosa, Iowa. You can check out the “barn” any time and as more and more people donate or loan items, it will likely get jammed with good and dusty, even rusty stuff.

If you have items to loan for a year or longer or donate to the project please get in touch; museum@nationalmcmuseum.org or call 614 551 0960 if you have any questions about the show. Or check the National Motorcycle Museum website, www.nationalmcmuseum.org

One Lucky Attendee to Win The Morongo Casino Sailor Jerry Chopper

Legendary custom motorcycle builder Paul Yaffe will celebrate his through the years exhibition and  birthday bash as well as over 25 years in the bike building and custom parts business on Friday, December 16, at the Morongo Casino Resort in Cabazon, CA.

 “It all started with a love of motorcycles and a curiosity and desire to see what could be made of them,” says Paul. “I never would have guessed, when I first started experimenting in the mid eighties, that it would lead to where we are today.”

Fans and motorcycle enthusiasts are encouraged to join Paul for his Birthday Bash and Custom Bike Display at the Morongo Casino Resort on Friday Dec. 16th. Not only will attendees get to meet Paul and enjoy libations with him, but Paul will give away his newly created Sailor Jerry Chopper to one lucky partygoer. This is the perfect opportunity for fans to hang out with Paul and a bunch of his bikes, ask him questions, and see firsthand and up close the beauty and power of his metal masterpieces.

Paul has gathered an amazing collection of some of his most memorable custom creations for his Through The Years Exhibition. Fifteen motorcycles will be displayed, including both Discovery bikes (Phantom and Suzy-Q), the Copper Chopper, Prodigy, and, of course, the one slated for giveaway: the Sailor Jerry Chopper.

Sidecar Soirée, Friday March 31-April 2, 2017

sidecare-soiree-logo

Press Release: Sara Liberte, a photographer and friend of mine, completed over 7400 miles riding from New York City to San Francisco via Pikes Peak, Colorado, then down to Los Angeles and over to Sturgis for the Black Hills Rally. We decided that sidecars are too much fun – so we are going to host the Sidecar Soirée in the heart of Texas Hill Country – more to come as we build out www.SidecarSoiree.com. Looking forward to hanging out with fellow sidehacktivists!

Join us on Friday March 31st- Sunday April 2nd in Fredericksburg, Texas, the gateway to the iconic Texas Hill Country. Enjoy scenic rides, tasty foods, live music and the camaraderie that only a sidecar rig can bring.

This unique hotel was designed with an exterior appearance of a WWII hangar. Food, drinks and plenty of parking for tow vehicles and trailers if needed, this location provides all we need! —Robert Pandya

The Sidecar Soiree was imagined over a cross-country trip between motorcycle Industry photographer and writer, Sara Liberte, and career motorcycle industry executive Robert Pandya. Spending six weeks and 7400 miles together working as a team to document the Sister Centennial Ride, and then the Veterans Charity Ride to Sturgis, the enjoyment of seeing the country atop a sidecar was contagious. Every stop had new sidecar fans showing up. Kids got rides, Grandmas got rides, and deserving US Veterans who could no longer ride a motorcycle were given the opportunity to cruise to the Sturgis Bike Week in style.

Navigation Necessity: Free Installs Of Device Mounts For Sturgis Rally

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedin

devicemountsSouth Dakota is the only state that doubles its population in a matter of a few days- it’s the week of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally! Whether it’s your first time out or your 20th annual ride to western SoDak, navigation is going to be paramount! The Black Hills are full of winding, twisting curves and roadways. While it’s some of the most beautiful riding landscape in the state, getting around can be a challenge without maps.

With the Klock Werks Device Mounts for Harley, Indian, Victory, and coming soon for Honda, Indian Scout, and Polaris Slingshot, you can attach any device with ease to your handlebars or center riser! You’ll also enjoy rotational capabilities if you need to adjust your device down, up, or side to side for sun glare. Your direction apps, weather apps, and tracking apps will be right where you need them, and we’ve tested the power of this system again and again- on the interstate, dirt track and an international speedway!

Klock Werks Device Mounts install in minutes- it’s a couple bolts out and a couple bolts back in. Once you adhere your unobtrusive stainless steel iOadapt disc to the back of your device (please wait up to 8 hours for permanent adhesion), you’re ready to use the system! Anyone who has an iOadapt on their device can connect to the iOcore, and you can move your device from bike to bike or car and home too with other iOmounts products! It’s the most powerful and universal system for the powersports industry today! Read More
