STURGIS (3-27-2012) - The Best Party Anywhere - the Sturgis Buffalo Chip - and Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys have teamed up to host a celebration of the women of motorcycling during the 2012 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally on Wednesday, August 8.
The Sturgis Buffalo Chip and Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys have long realized women as an integral part of motorcycling. Addie and Gussie Van Buren, Gloria Struck and Bessie Stringfield paved the way for women on wheels, and Russ Brown wants to help celebrate all from those original game changers to those on their first ride, who make up a substantially increasing portion of riders. As of 2008, women accounted for 12.3 percent of all motorcycle owners in the U.S. and 23 percent of the 25 million Americans who rode motorcycles the previous year were women.
To celebrate, Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys Night of Celebrating Women of Motorcycling will take place at the Legendary Sturgis Buffalo Chip - the flagship venue of the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally - in The Chip's Top Shelf Suite on Wednesday, August 8, during the 72nd annual Sturgis Rally. The Top Shelf Suite boasts the best views of the concerts, and all BAM members (Russ Brown’s program that provides free breakdown and legal assistance for motorcycles nationwide) can enter to win a chance to be there. Seventy five BAM members will win tickets to the event at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip on August 8. Winners receive admittance to the Sturgis Buffalo Chip and the Top Shelf Suite for the concert and the Night of Celebrating Women of Motorcycling event.
To enter the Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys contest call 1-800-424-5377 and speak to a BAM rep or check it out online at russbrown.com. There will also be BAM booths at most major rallies in the country, and those interested can enter there as well, by simply telling the representatives that you are going to Sturgis, and they will do the rest.
“Women are a major force in motorcycling today, so it’s an honor to celebrate their efforts, past, present and future. This special celebration is a unique and welcome addition to the Buffalo Chip’s lineup during the 2012 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally,” said Rod Woodruff, Sturgis Buffalo Chip’s president.
Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys recently signed on as an official sponsor of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip through 2015. In 2012, they will sponsor The Chip’s Legends Ride (www.legendsride.com), Biker Belles event (www.bikerbelles.com) and the Miss Buffalo Chip Contest.
