Petition Accepted for Buffalo Chip Incorporation

There’s something about riding a motorcycle that’s fundamentally badass. That’s why if you don’t own one, you want one, and if you do, you always want another.

This year that bike comes to us straight from Victory and Cory Ness of Arlen Ness Enterprises by way of the Buffalo Chip’s Sturgis Rider® Sweepstakes, which means that 2015’s coolest bike and its matching Epiphone guitar could actually be yours if you register to win them.
