Sturgis Motorcycle Rally

K and G Cycles showed up 1000 percent at the 2011 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally at the Legendary Buffalo Chip, making their best showing to date; engaging rally-goers, delivering an enormous grand prize to one lucky rider and sponsoring two phenomenal industry events.

K and G Cycles attracted rally goers to their enormous promotion with the K and G Cycles Girls, Devani and Amber, while owners, George and Kyle, passed out complimentary grease rags and engaged people at the Legendary Buffalo Chip Campground.

Tom Messer, the lucky winner of the K and G Cycles Great Sturgis Vacation Giveaway, was awarded an extraordinarily generous prize on the main stage of the Legendary Buffalo Chip Campground on Friday night, while Edgar Winter was giving an out-of-this-world performance.

His prize included, among other things: the EZ Camp Package for two at the Legendary Buffalo Chip; Fan VIP upgrades at the Chip; two passes to the VIP Media Tour of the Michael Lichter Exhibition and entrance to the VIP Party; two sets of jackets, chaps and gloves from River Road, two HJC full-face street helmets; $250 in merchandise from Hot Leathers; a photo-op with the beautiful K and G Street Team Girls and $1,000 cash. Messer was beyond excited to win this once-in-a-lifetime grand prize.

K and G Cycles was also proud to generously support two grand Sturgis and Legendary Buffalo Chip traditions: the annual Legends Ride and the Michael Lichter Motorcycles as Art exhibit “Slant Artist – An Eccentric View of Motorcycles and Art.”

George Marakas (K&G Cycle owner) says: “On Monday, the K and G Cycles team went to Deadwood, South Dakota to do the Legends Ride, kicking off the 71st annual Sturgis Rally with a Ride that Really Rocks! There, we were joined by an array of celebrities, builders, artists and riders from all corners of the world.

“This year’s Legends Ride raised significant funds for two worthy Black Hills charities, including the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame and the Black Hills Special Olympics, the Legends Ride has raised more than $150,000 in just three short years and has become the premier charity-celebrity event in motorcycling.”

This year’s 11th Annual Motorcycle as Art exhibition, “Slant Artist – An Eccentric View on Motorcycles and Art” focused on avant-garde artist, Jeff Decker.

In addition to Decker’s numerous beautiful bronze sculptures, there was a large, eclectic display of collectible motorcycles and wall art culled from his personal collection, friends and other artists filling the 7,000 square foot gallery. Decker also worked on a bronze sculpture in the exhibition space during the rally.
