STURGIS RECAP 2018. GREAT TO SEE THE VISITORS ATTENDING IN HUGE NUMBERS.

Post and Images by Jack McIntyre

I really have no idea how many people attended Sturgis this year, and I probably won’t look into it any further, but as I moved about the Buffalo Chip, the Full Throttle, Sturgis, the Black Hills, and Deadwood, I saw a constant flow of bikers everywhere I went. I also spoke to many vendors and was told that sales were way up this year, which is great to hear. Teddy & Pam at the Rats Hole said their beer sales sky rocketed during the concerts this year, and with the weather being great almost every day, the party went on into the wee morning every day. Johnny Lange at Strip Club Choppers explained that he was close to running out of merchandise by rallies end. All in all, just great news for the industry. Below is a re-cap more or less of some photos, enjoy! Continue reading STURGIS RECAP 2018. GREAT TO SEE THE VISITORS ATTENDING IN HUGE NUMBERS.

AS DAYTONA APPROACHES, I ASK THE QUESTION ONCE ASKED BEFORE

Pictures & Post by Jack McIntyre

One of my greatest “biker” memories was loading my first Harley-Davidson Fatboy onto my Dodge Ram a few decades ago, and doing the over night run from Philly to Daytona Beach for my first Biketoberfest. I had no idea what to expect, but when turning of 95 South onto Rt. 1 towards Ormand Beach, my eyes popped open the size of golf balls. Bikers everywhere, and I mean on bar fronts at every corner, parking lots, roads, beach… everywhere. I knew then that I was in my happy place. Since those days, I have watched the industry flourish, fall apart, pull it’s self back together, and keep trying up till today. I went from being just a visitor to very involved in the media side of motorcycling for the total love of it.THU_6347Truth is, my generation is getting older, not too old yet, but getting there. Of all of the things I have done in my life, biker rallies top the list by far. I go to as many as I can, and won’t stop until my body says to. My concern is, are the upcoming corporate professionals with the major motorcycle and component companies going to step up and keep up their roles? Are the up and coming media and event organizers going to keep alive these HUGE gatherings? I can only hope so and I would lend my experiences to anyone that would ask.

THU_6657Just my two cents, have a great Daytona everyone, it’s coming up soon!

Images & Article by Jack McIntyreINDIAN LARRY BLOCKPARTY 2017-5-3September 16, 2017: So what did we do today? Took off from Philly at 05:00 and arrived in Brooklyn NY bright and early for the set up of the Indian Larry Motorcycle Grease Monkey Block Party, 2017. This is an example of one of the greatest dedications of fans of the brand Indian Larry, and the generosity of all involved to continually donate to the Aidan Jack Seeger Foundation. INDIAN LARRY BLOCKPARTY 2017-3I walked the event shooting pics & talking with friends & visitors, and the event , as always, provided entertainment from one end to the other as seen in my images below. Motorcycles lined the surrounding streets, with a mix of custom cars, FXR stunt shows, music all day / night, and more. Enjoy the images, visit the Aidan has a Posse website if you can to donate & learn, and come to the party on 2018!

STURGIS 2016, ALIVE AND COOKIN’

FullSizeRender(7)

To me, Sturgis is a special place, and not just to me, hundreds of thousands of bikers. from the always stunning sights as seen above, to the

incredible entertainment as viewed below at the Buffal Chip. As a photographer and web dude for Iron Trader News, I try to connect myself with

the best the industry has to offer. Rod “Woody” Woodruff,  Commander & Chief of the Chip, has the most incredible destination for you to visit &

even better, plant roots at. Tents, cabins, campers, your bus, everything fits. With entertainment from morning till night, what more could you want?

CONCERT

As a member of Iron Trader News, its my privilege to be under the wing of Marilyn Stemp, the best editor I have ever worked with. That being said,

she gives me assignments that are my pleasure to tackle. I get to mingle with industry builders and private enthusiasts that I would otherwise not

have the opportunity to do so. As seen below, I was asked to present the Iron Trader News award for our EDITORS CHOICE, and that went to

Chad Pearson with his 1957 FLH. It was a bike that took me to another era, clean, great lines, this guy has it dialed in perfectly. Presenting Chad

our award at such a high profile, well run show, proved to be a terrific day for me personally.

Moving around the area a bit, Maverick Publishing had a bagger show at the new Full Throttle Saloon. Stunning bikes, amazing thought process

put into each and every one of them.

Each year the Chip has the Michael Lichter Exhibit, a different theme each year. This year he presented Skin & Bones, Tattoo inspired Motorcycles

and Art. More images to come. Below see Michael with a group of the industries well know. He looks quite happy if you ask me. Just sayin’

I save the best for last, this is me, mobile photographer, future Hamster (hopefully) and more. Standing with Rick Fairless, a great dude from

Strokers Dallas, and out on the Aidan’s Ride Sturgis, I’m blessed to play a role in this industry that we all love so much. Please stay tuned,

I have some great galleries of images to add soon.
