    Here's a short video one of our regular customers did of the first Bash. Enjoy!




    A little back-story to this event...


    We held the first Sammy's Cycle Bash back on September 24th 2017...a month after Hurricane Harvey devastated our town. Many of my motorcycle friends lost their bikes, their homes, and some even lost family. The Bash was designed to bring the motorcycle community together, and provide at least a brief moment of reprieve from what we were all going through. The event consisted of breakfast, a MotoGP watch party, a group ride, lunch, lots of giveaways (donated by myself, my restaurant group, and sponsoring vendors). The Sammy's girls were on site on their own time meeting and greeting and taking pictures with the guys and their bikes. The Red Bull girls also made an appearance and did much of the same.

    My restaurant provided the venue. I personally bought all the food and beverage (non-alcoholic) to serve 500 people both breakfast and lunch. 15% of alcohol sales went to JJ Watt's efforts for hurricane relief...it felt very good to cut that check. Vendors and sponsors were not charged to participate, and as such, donated over $6000 worth of items to the giveaways (note I said giveaway, not raffle...there was no money made on this event).

    We had many sponsors that stepped in and supported the cause, and most were in attendance: RideSmart, Cycle Gear, Bein Sports, Red Bull, Motul, AGV, Motion Pro, Scorpion, D2 Racing (even though they don't even make anything for motorcycles...very cool), Bud Light, Miller Lite, Tito's Vodka, Glazers Distributors, Urban Imports, MotoHouston, Sport Bike Track Gear, Honda of Houston, Wild West MotoPlex, Motorcycles Unlimited, V1 Moto, Cycle Shack North, JD Cycles, TXSR, Desmo Club of Houston, Clutch Crew Houston, Big Frog Graphics...I think I remembered everyone.

    We hosted any and all that wanted to attend free of charge. We had 283 bikes and over 500 people show up for this event. It was an amazing success all the way around. That's what we wanted to do and that's what we did...for the community.

    What we did not anticipate was all of the "thank yous" and "when's the next one gonna be?" So after much thought, we committed to having two Sammy's Cycle Bashes each year...one in the Spring and one in the Fall...every one of them attached to a charity or benefit in some way. This next one is just ten weeks after the Charity Chili Cook-Off we're hosting to benefit Camp Hope (great organization that helps returning servicemen suffering from PTSD, and also assists them in finding good jobs and homes...also pretty cool).

    At any rate...if any of you are in the area that weekend, we'd love to have you join us.

    Cheers
    Nick

    Looks like a good time for a good cause. I'll spread the word at JBSA. Charity rides are pretty well supported by the AD/Vets here in San Antonio. When is that chili cook off event?

    Thank you! That's awesome.

    The chili cook-off will be the weekend before the Super Bowl (Saturday, January 27th, 2018).
