Cory Ness goes over the details of the Sturgis Riders Sweepstakes bike with Victory's Manny Pandya at the Long Beach IMS. One of the bike's coolest features is the KICKER amp concealed neatly in the right saddlebag that the Epiphone guitar plugs in to so you can play an impromptu guitar solo just about anywhere you go.

The Sturgis Buffalo Chip, known as "The Largest Music Festival in Motorcycling," today announced the opening of the annual Sturgis Rider Sweepstakes at the International Motorcycle Show in Long Beach, California with the official unveiling of the customized sweepstakes bike and matching guitar prize package. The Sturgis Rider Sweepstakes awards one lucky Buffalo Chip visitor a Cory Ness customized Victory Cross Country motorcycle and matching Epiphone Les Paul Studio guitar. The winner will be announced live on the main stage of the Buffalo Chip during the Sturgis motorcycle rally on Friday, August 9, 2013 prior to that night’s double headlining concerts. Sturgis Rider Sweepstakes entries may now be made at www.BuffaloChip.com or this one-of-a-kind prize package that combines the world of music and motorcycling.
The Sturgis Buffalo Chip, the Sturgis motorcycle rally’s flagship entertainment venue, has partnered with Victory Motorcycles, Arlen Ness Enterprises, Epiphone Guitar and KICKER to offer this free to enter Sturgis Rider Sweepstakes. The Victory Cross Country, one of Victory Motorcycles most popular baggers, customized by world famous motorcycle builder Cory Ness of Arlen Ness Motorcycles in Dublin, California, has transformed the motorcycle into an instant custom classic ready for bike shows and to hit the open road. The customized motorcycle, with its hand crafted fabrication to the stretched gas tank and innovative rear section, 6 degree raked triple trees, world class Arlen Ness products that include the new 23” G3 front wheel, Modular handlebars and Power LED's as well as a high end paint job, helps put this Ness Victory in a class by itself. The matching Epiphone Les Paul Studio guitar, which also was customized by Cory Ness, is an innovation of Les Paul’s classic dream guitar. Introduced in the early 1980s, the Epiphone Les Paul Studio remains a classic favorite of musicians today.
In addition to the custom Ness fabrication, state of the art parts, accessories and head turning paint job, the 2013 Sturgis Rider Sweepstakes motorcycle from the Buffalo Chip has an amazing sound system provided by KICKER. Complete with amplifier, fairing and saddlebag mounted speakers, I-Pod connection and a guitar hook up so the winner can play their new Epiphone guitar directly through the heart pounding KICKER system on the bike. The Ness Custom Victory motorcycle and Epiphone guitar will be an epic prize package that will commemorate one lucky winner’s 2013 journey to the Black Hills and the Sturgis Buffalo Chip.
“We are excited that Cory Ness has built one of the coolest Victory Cross Country’s and matching Epiphone guitars we have ever seen as the Sturgis Rider Sweepstakes grand prize,” said Rod Woodruff, owner of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. “The Sturgis Rider Sweepstakes is just another way we can say thanks to all those who call the Buffalo Chip home during the rally. With great partners like Ness Enterprises, Victory Motorcycles, Epiphone guitars and KICKER, the Chip can continue to offer the best sweepstakes prizes along with the greatest concerts of the rally!”
“I am thrilled to be the builder of the 2013 Sturgis Rider Sweepstakes bike,” says Cory Ness of Arlen Ness Motorcycles. “We ride our Victory motorcycles every year from California to Sturgis. The Ness family has been a long time with Victory, and my whole family has enjoyed many great concerts and events at the Buffalo Chip over the years. I am looking forward to being on stage and hearing the crowd at the Buffalo Chip go absolutely nuts when I hand over the keys to my one of a kind Victory motorcycle and give the Epiphone guitar to the winner.”

Regarding the contest. Winner has to be present to get the bike. So you need to spend the money to get there in order to win. However, I don't have to be present to enter. I can enter this contest from thousands of miles away but can't win unless I am at the event. Sounds like a purchase is necessary. Better rethink that logic.

Oh yeah, let's get down to it plain and simple: Just because your father or grandfather is a living legend in a given industry, that does not automatically make the son or grandson capable of the same type of work or the same level of skill or quality or sheer talent or even that your ideas are good ones. This guitar & amp. idea is proof.
If this idea is the direction that Victory is going, then I will gladly keep driving my Toyota Prius. Just kidding. But I would rather see Victory think for themselves and get rid of this guy's influence.

Victory is my favorite brand of motorcycle, and by far. However, the idea that a touring style cruiser comes with a built-in Kicker (or any brand of) audio amplifier in the storage "bag" for powering a guitar that you are apparently supposed to (and able to) carry with you whenever and wherever you ride so that you can just pull over and jam out to your heart's content is ridiculous and downright absurd.

If Cory Ness was serious about this, then he should have also designed and fabricated some sort of guitar carrying case with all mounting hardware for it. While that would just be more ridiculous and absurd, this whole thing is insulting to anyone with intelligence.

If he was actually thinking about what would be useful instead of cool, he would have come up with a way to install some sort of electrically operated emergency tire pump with a hose and gauge with all that involves so that people could keep riding their bikes instead of sitting by the road side or some bar as a wannabe rocker.

Perhaps what Victory could do that would be intelligent and beneficial to them and the public (the source of their profits as it is the public who buys their bikes and accessories) is to bring back the basic Vegas and Kingpin models in new (wanted) colors and chrome.
