17th Annual Buffalo Chip Legends Ride

Presented by Progressive

Riders and celebrities first got together in 2008 to enjoy a ride through the Black Hills. We believed then, just as we do now, that riding together forms bonds that create brotherhoods and sisterhoods. We also believed that together we could help preserve riding heritage and make a difference in the lives of some very special Special Olympians while we ride. And together we have. Riders like you have helped donate well over $2.3 million to charities like the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and the Black Hills Special Olympics while having a lot of fun along the way. We can’t wait to see what we can do together as Legends Riders in years to come, and hope you’ll join us to experience it for yourself.
