    « Donnie Smith Bike & Car Show is the largest single-weekend show of its kind in the United States. If this is true why do then need a association with Buffalo Chip? It will benefit the chip not the Donnie Smith show. Sounds like a bad deal!

    It’s always about the “Legendary Chip”….people in the industry should know that by now.

    Buffalo Chip wants more exposure to recruit campground clients. The show wants more sponsors.

    Two great names combining their talents. I have been going to Donnie’s show for 20 years. Buffalo Chips for just as long.
    This is a great opportunity for all. Knowing both owners and shows, Great things will happen because of their integrity, dedication to the biker community and public.
    Fact: All involved are first class people that give back each and every time.

    Every segment of the motorcycle industry be it manufacturers, distributors, shops etc. work together to share resources, best practices and relationships to improve their businesses. Why should motorcycle events be any different? The Sturgis Buffalo Chip wants to expand its network of leading events to bring expanded opportunities to the industry as a whole. Would you rather have owners working together that are truly vested and give back to the motorcycle industry? Or would you rather have corporations and large ad agencies running these shows that don’t care about the industry and support those in it? Past the short-sided, uninformed pundits spewing negative trash on this site, I think this is something we can all get behind that’s good for the industry.
