The Sturgis Buffalo Chip Legends Ride on Monday, August 6, raised over $80,000 for the Black Hill Special Olympics and the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame. 

The event served as the unofficial start to the Sturgis Rally, and this year the ride broke the event’s record for most riders in attendance. The guided scenic charity ride began at the Silverado-Franklin in Deadwood and ended at the Buffalo Chip. 

The celebrity charity event gave rally-goers the chance to ride alongside such celebrities as Dee Snyder of Twister Sister, Arlen Ness, Corey Ness, Zach Ness, Jim “Hacksaw” Duggan, Robbie Knievel and Paul Teutul Sr. of Orange County Choppers.

 

Following the ride, Legends Ride participants attended a charity reception and live auction that featured live music from The Living Deads, Doobie Brothers and Jared James Nichols. 

With the help of hundreds of riders, the Sturgis Buffalo Chip was able to present a check for $81,490 to the Black Hills Special Olympics and the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame. Orange County Choppers also gave away a custom chopper to wounded combat veteran, Robert Five.

 

“What a night!” says Rod Woodruff, president of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. ”It was great to have Paul Sr. at the Chip presenting this bike to such a deserving combat veteran. Especially on such [a] powerful night for us, with CMT film crews throughout the amphitheater and one of the largest crowds we’ve seen yet."
