Küryakyn Ramps Up Sturgis Rally Presence for the 75th

Kuryakyn and Crusher Performance at the 2014 Sturgis Rally

After last year’s roaring debut of their Performance Division, Crusher™, Küryakyn® accelerates into the 75th annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally® with its largest presence to-date in the Black Hills. Two Küryakyn trucks and one Crusher truck will open at Black Hills Harley-Davidson in Rapid City on July 25, offering more than 5,500 square feet of product displays and installation bays.

Dozens of new items from Küryakyn and Crusher will debut in Sturgis this year, with special product and install promotions posted daily. Rally-goers can take advantage of great onsite installation specials by appointment, or roll right on through the popular Express Lane for quick, bolt-on installs. Visit the trucks on Thursday, August 6 for a daylong Anniversary Party to help Küryakyn salute the 75th with prize giveaways, sales specials and product demos. Crusher and Küryakyn can also be found in downtown Sturgis at the co-branded truck and display with J&P Cycles® located at their all-new store on Lazelle.

Ride, Bike Show & Event Sponsorships: Küryakyn’s reach is extending far beyond vendor venues with the recent announcement of the three-year strategic sponsorship with the Buffalo Chip. As part of that agreement, Küryakyn is proud to announce participation in the 8th annual Sturgis Buffalo Chip® Legends Ride benefitting the Black Hills Special Olympics. The star-studded ride on August 3 departs Deadwood and ends at the Chip for a riders-only reception and viewing of Michael Lichter’s annual Motorcycles As Art Exhibit, which is also supported by Küryakyn and Crusher. On August 6 at the Chip, Küryakyn will be backing daredevil Doug “Danger” as he attempts a 22-car jump in the Evel Knievel Thrill Show on Evel’s vintage 1972 H-D XR-750. Küryakyn has also pledged support and participation in the Lakota Heritage Ride & Celebration hosted by Throttle Girl on August 7. The ride starts at the Chip and benefits the Lakota children of Pine Ridge Reservation and One Spirit© food programs.

Bike shows abound in the Black Hills, and for the third year in a row Küryakyn will be at historic Sturgis City Park supporting the FXR Motorbike Show on August 2. That same day Crusher will reward the winners of the Easyriders™ Bike Show at the Easyriders Saloon, where on August 5 Küryakyn will be supporting and providing prizes to the skilled artisans in the Perewitz Custom Paint Show.

Come out and show your support for these great events and countless others. The 75th annual Black Hills bash is sure to be a rally for the record books, and Küryakyn hopes to see you there! If you can’t make it, follow #THEXKURSION to Sturgis via Küryakyn’s Facebook and on Instagram @kuryakyn.
