The Biker Belles® event and auction to raise money for charity held on Aug. 6, 2013 at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip® featured a custom built motorcycle by moto-celebrity Jessi Combs and donated by Bruce Rossmeyer’s Daytona Harley Davidson. The highest bidder twas Pat Simmons of the Doobie Brothers who gifted the custom bike to his wife Cris Sommer-Simmons. The bike building and event will be featured tomorrow evening September 14, 2013 Ton the Velocity Channel “All Girls Garage.”at 11:30 a.m. ET/PT.
The program features female mechanics repairing and upgrading classic automobiles and motorcycles, and during its diffusion, it will spotlight both the Buffalo Chip’s Biker Belles celebration, this custom Harley and highlight the reasons why the Biker Belles charity ride is of particular interest in celebrating women and the role they play in shaping the culture, sport, art and history of motorcycling.
“We’re proud to support women riders by hosting the Biker Belles for the fifth year,” says Rod Woodruff, president of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. “Seeing Pat Simmons give the All Girls Garage bike to his wife was extra special, considering it was here at the Chip that the couple first met 24 years ago. I look forward to reliving that moment again when the program airs. For more information about the Biker Belles celebration and to reserve your place in 2014, call 605-347-9000.
