THE BUFFALO CHIP IS A FANTASY LAND FOR BIKERS, NO JOKE.

Post & Photos by Jack McIntyre

Lets start off by saying how terrific the Buffalo Chip was this year. Cheers to all of their staff. Welcome Home was the theme this year and they made us feel just that.

With a week of almost stellar weather, there was really no interruption for the mega concerts, shows, or contests. Days were warm & sunny, evenings breezy and nice. Bands such as STYX, Dee Snyder, Keith Urban, Toby Keith, Snoop Dog, and more really treated the fans to what they came to the Chip for. Great riding all day, incredible music all night.

Below we have a shot from Bikini Beach. The Chips internal water hole with rope swings, slides, chairs, obviously swimming, games, a full bar, food, and a band shell. Best thing is, you can party all day and be totally safe from the outside authorities regarding driving.

Going back to the concerts, check out these images. These aren’t rinky dink performances, these are huge national, historic groups that the Chip brings in year in and year out. The crowds are huge, fun, and there are great vendors all around the venue including zip lining, beer & liquor, lots of food choices, and more more more.

There were many special events this year. A few caught my camera lens that were special to me. The Navy Seals brought along a few of their bomb sniffing dogs, and even did a little zip lining with them. A soldier that had lost his right leg along with a few fingers was presented with a custom trike on stage, and the Legends Ride once again presented a huge check to the Black Hills Special Olympics.

There is so much more to touch on but please look through the images below & enjoy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OUR DESTINATION, STROKERS DALLAS, EVERY CITY NEEDS THIS KIND OF BIKER VENUE !

Post & Images by Jack McIntyre

2am Philadelphia. We have business in Dallas Texas all week, so we are on the BLOODSHOT eyes flight. We land in Dallas, way too early to check in so we do a little sightseeing. Now we are hitting 2pm and the Mothers day brunches are coming to an end, and the bikers begin to gather.

This is where is gets fun, they are all heading to Rick Fairless’ Strikers Dallas.

Now keep in mInd, it’s Sunday afternoon, Mothers day… you’d think it would be almost empty. So we pull up in our geeky rent a car only to find no parking, apparently Mothers day wasn’t a good enough reason to avoid Strokers.

From the amazingly detailed show room with all of it’s characters, custom motorcycles, and images to the exterior wall murals everywhere & statuettes, your brain just can’t take it all in.

Along with the outside entertainment, Rick has the Strokers Ice House serving amazing fun food, all types, all beers, all great.

Bottom line, don’t just think about going to Strokers Dallas, make it a goal. Sunday (today) was excellent fun, my next visit will be on a rockin’s Saturday and for that visit I will have a motorcycle under me.
