Sturgis, S.D. – An Indian Scout Sixty customized into the ultimate street-legal tracker by the dream team at J&P Cycles will be going home with a crazy-lucky winner in the 2018 Sturgis Buffalo Chip Moto Stampede Bike Giveaway. The Buffalo Chip teamed up with J&P Cycles and GEICO Motorcycle to create a one-of-a-kind beast that will tear up the track on Sunday and be ready to gather a few gawks along the street on Monday. Any licensed driver 18 years or older may enter to win this beastly beauty by going here or registering in person at the Buffalo Chip before Aug. 7 at 5 p.m. during the Sturgis Rally event. The bike will be presented to the winner on the Chip’s main stage on Wednesday, Aug. 8.
The unique build was meant to inspire motorcyclists of all levels of technical skills to investigate customization possibilities they can perform themselves. To that end J&P Cycles expert builder Pauly White created a dream machine any motorcycle enthusiast could build in their own garage, using their own tools. While completely changing the body, handlebars, controls, wheels, tires, seat, exhaust and lighting, the bike never left the garage, except for painting. A link to the list of the parts used on the bike can be found on the sweepstakes registration page.
The bike will be on tour with GEICO at the International Motorcycle Shows until it will be displayed at the Buffalo Chip in August. Sweepstakes registration is open at each IMS GEICO display.
how about some tech info on the bike?
Has anyone looked at the rules for this giveaway? Specifically rule #6 ?
6. HOW TO CLAIM THE PRIZE: Eight (8) finalists will be randomly selected to be eligible to win the Grand Prize. Finalists for the Grand Prize will be contacted by phone by a Buffalo Chip representative on Wednesday, 08/08/18 between 9 a.m. and 2p.m. MDT. If the finalist is unavailable to accept the call, the representative will leave a message with the time frame allowed to return the call, the phone number to call and the name of the representative to ask for. Finalists will have 15 minutes to return the phone call and verify whether they are able to participate in the Grand Prize Drawing to be held LIVE on the main stage at the Buffalo Chip Campground that evening at 9 p.m. In the event a finalist fails to return the phone call within the designated time frame, that finalist will be disqualified and another name will be called. Finalists must be present to win. A finalist who fails to appear will be disqualified. The winner will be drawn from the finalists who appear. Sponsor will provide a complimentary admission pass upon arrival for any finalist not staying at the Buffalo Chip.
Are you kidding? A rep. is going to call on a Wednesday between 9:00 am & 2:00 pm (the time when most people are at work) and if your not home, you have 15 minutes to respond or your disqualified. Even worse, you have to be present at the Buffalo Chip Campground by 9:00 pm on the same day to accept the prize or your disqualified.
So say you get the call at 2:00 pm. That means you have 7 hours to get to the BC Campground to claim your prize or your disqualified.
For the majority of Americans in the US, there’s no way to make it in time!
Although this giveaway is likely on the up & up, this comes as close to a scam as it gets. J&P Cycles and Geico Insurance should be ashamed to sponsor such a contest.
