The 5th annual Biker Belles Celebration, a day of Real Women, of Real Stories, and of Real Fun will be held Tuesday August 6t.. The event raises funds for local charities empowering and encouraging girls and women through the community of motorcycling and is also helping Horsepower® and the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum. This year, tickets for this fun day with friends are sold at a discount to further increase rider participation. The ticket contribution is $45 per person with 100% going directly to the chosen charities. This ride is open to all men, women, riders who support women in motorcycling. Tickets to Tuesday’s concert headliner, Toby Keith, may be purchased separately. They can be purchased at (605) 347-9000 or online at Biker Belles.

The day begins at the Lodge at Deadwood with an inspiring symposium of leading industry women, including Shelly Rossmeyer (co-owner of Bruce Rossmeyere’s Harley Davidson at Destination Daytona), Cris Sommer-Simmons (Motorcycle Hall of Famer), Vicky Sanfilipo (safety advocate), and celebrity rider Kristy Swanson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) among others,.  A beautiful ride through the canyons of the Black Hills follows, leading to a special catered reception and a fashion show featuring Harley Davidson Motorclothes® and auction at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip.

The Harley Softtail will be customized by Jessi with the support of industry donors including, Avon Tyres, Bruce Rossmeyer’s Harley Davidson, Klockwerks Kustoms, Legend Air Suspension, LGE&CTS, Magnaflow, PPG Paint and Ride Wright Wheels.  This one of a kind Biker Belles Bike will be auctioned for charity during the special rider’s reception at the Russ Brown Event Center at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip on August 6th.  The live auction is open to the public.

    This is a good event and though it and some of the others like it that are organized rides that help specific organizations may not be for everyone.

    @ Breyner Alarcon I wish the same for me on being discovered.I can take bikes that people have given up on and get them running again, have my painter work magic on the sheet metal with awesome paint and maybe some gold leaf, add a nicer seat and some chrome for the eye.
    Trikes that are not run of the mill and here again a special paint job, custom seat and matching wheels and chromed nicely.
    I even applied for the chance to work with Paul Sr. and never heard back from the producers, I guess they don’t want a female who knows how to work on bikes.
