Correction On July 21, 08. Hey Cyril, Lon Nordbye with the Buffalo Chip in Sturgis. Thank you so much for posting the information on our Legends Ride celebrity-charity event in Sturgis and the bike we are auctioning off that was so graciously donated by Sucker Punch Sally’s and Destination Daytona. In our excitement to get the word out about this development, which will allow our event to raise tens of thousands of additional dollars for the Children’s Home Society and the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum, we accidently submitted the wrong version of the press release which included a picture of Sucker Punch’s “Swinger” motorcycle from their 2008 model lineup which is not the limited edition “Destination Duo” that will be auctioned off highlighting the conclusion of the Legends Ride.
So with that being said, I would like to kindly request that you post this reply so that Sucker Punch Sally’s and Destination Daytona can get the proper focus and credit they deserve as being two of the main contributors for our event which has already raised over $30,000 for the Children’s Home Society and the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience or confusion this may have caused your readers and we will be happy to post pictures of the Destination Duo bike in our post event coverage as part of this successful and worthwhile event in Sturgis. They deserve nothing but positive feedback for their efforts as this event would not be possible without their support and generosity.
