Sturgis Buffalo Chip Evo Entanglement Bike Show

By General Posts

Three years in a row of the best prize package at the Rally!

Long known as Harley-Davidson’s most reliable and approachable power plant, many moto-historians also say the Evo engine saved the MoCo. Its 16-year+ run followed the company’s buy-out by the “gang of 13” and it ushered in stability in those post-AMF days.

The years of the Evo engine dovetailed with massive production numbers, too, so there are plenty of Evo powerplants still around. When the industry boomed in the late ‘90s and early 2000’s, Evo-style engines ran thousands more “American other” machines made by companies such as S&S Cycle to power Big Dogs, American Iron Horses, and many more.

So where are all the Evos now? That’s what we want to know! Bring yours – factory or aftermarket – to enter the 3rd Annual Evo Entanglement Show, presented by S&S Cycle, at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip on Wednesday, August 9th. Besides an opportunity for awesome profiling, you could win an S&S V-111 engine, Paughco frame, tank & front end, and $1000 Baker certificate. And that’s just one of the prizes!

Want to meet Sons of Anarchy actor Rusty Coones? Enter the show FREE (online in advance or day of show) to be eligible for the first-ever Rusty Coones Illusion Cycles Award, selected and presented by Rusty himself. The award includes a custom-made, one-off trophy crafted by Paul Wideman at Bare Knuckle Performance PLUS a super slick Whiteknuckler knife compliments of Lowbrow Customs

Also meet Show Hero Paul Wideman of Bare Knuckle Performance and Artist Darren McKeag as they arrive on their Bare Knuckle Evo Custom Chops – the bikes they rode in from Missouri, bugs and all.

Redhead Action in Deadwood

A brother just can’t get enough Amber trouble

The middle of June and riders were determined to cruise the Black Hills before the factory anniversary, but torrents of rain got the best of them.

It rained in the black hills like an automatic sprinkler system keeps the golf course greens magnificently verdant in a blistering Phoenix summer. It came relentlessly, religiously, adorned with god-like thunder and lightning, coupled to incessant tornado warnings, flash flood alerts and hail cautions. That didn’t stop the brothers or even the broads from ditching cities all over the country.

MotoDoffo Wines Releases “Rally Red” Limited Edition Wine

By General Posts

Named the Official Wine of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip, this specially-labeled Cabernet Sauvignon is now available for online orders.

Temecula, Calif. – June 20, 2023 – MotoDoffo Wines, a moto-inspired division of family-owned Doffo Winery located in Temecula, California, has officially released its limited edition “Rally Red” wine ahead of this year’s Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. This specially-labeled Cabernet Sauvignon is now available for online orders and will be featured throughout the Sturgis Buffalo Chip’s bars during the rally.

“The first-ever MotoDoffo Rally Red is here!” shares MotoDoffo Winemaker and CEO, Damian Doffo. “With a powerhouse grape like Cabernet Sauvignon inside the bottle and a bold image of an American v-twin motorcycle on the label, we feel we’ve really captured the spirit of the Rally with this wine.”

Made 100% from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes harvested in the Fall of 2019 from Doffo Winery’s Temecula, California vineyards, the Rally Red is an approachable, easy-to-drink wine that goes well with a wide variety of dishes or can be enjoyed on its own.

The unique label artwork celebrates good times with a massive burnout at the legendary Buffalo Chip. Limited to just 1,500 bottles produced, each bottle’s back label features a serial number and a quote from Buffalo Chip founder Rod “Woody” Woodruff: “Ride free. Take risks. You deserve the best.”

The MotoDoffo Rally Red is available now at Doffo Winery in Temecula, CA and from the winery’s online shop at Visit for more on MotoDoffo Wines, lifestyle apparel, motorcycle collection, and visitation information.
