Indian Motorcycle, America’s first motorcycle company, announced its inaugural “Great American Summer Cookout,” taking place at Indian Motorcycle dealerships across the country on Saturday, June 13. The nationwide party celebrates the kickoff to the summer riding season and the run-up to the 2015 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, South Dakota. With the historic 75th anniversary of the Sturgis Rally fast approaching and nearly 1,000,000 attendees expected, the nationwide summer cookout will serve to remind motorcycling fans that the rally was started by Indian Motorcycle, and the past, present and future of this iconic motorcycling event belong to all riders.
While event specifics vary by location, dealers nationwide will be grilling up lots of summer favorites, and bringing “mini Sturgis rallies” to their towns with free giveaways, drawings for prizes and more. The event is taking place in collaboration with Indian Motorcycle partners the USO, the Sturgis Buffalo Chip, Jack Daniel’s and Zac Brown Band. Each event will feature plenty of free prizes and attendees will have a chance to enter for a chance to win a Zac Brown Band concert trip giveaway—all while helping raise funds for the USO and military families in the local area.
“Summer is finally here and everyone at Indian Motorcycle is excited to celebrate our strong ties to the Sturgis Rally by bringing a taste of Sturgis to towns nationwide,” said Scott Meek, Indian Motorcycle marketing director. “We’re extending an open invitation for everyone to stop by their local dealer this weekend to enjoy some great food, awesome bikes and support the USO.”
