Have you ever wondered what it would be like to cover an event for a major motorcycle magazine? Well, here’s your chance. American Iron Magazine is teaming up with Victory Motorcycle Company and Las Vegas BikeFest to give one of our lucky readers the opportunity to be an honorary contributor covering our ride to the event as well as the Las Vegas BikeFest itself.
The chosen one will join us in Ontario, California, on Wednesday, September 28, when he will be loaned a Victory Motorcycle to use for the event as we saddle up and head to Buffalo Bill’s Resort & Casino in Primm Valley, Nevada, for a kick-off party and a night filled with entertainment, food, and drinks. On Thursday, our group will ride to the Valley of Fire before heading to downtown Las Vegas to attend the 11th annual Las Vegas BikeFest scheduled to take place September 29 to October 2.
The lucky reader will be treated just as if he was an AIM staff member, which means he will be given the use of a Victory Cross Country or Vision (reader’s choice) motorcycle for the duration of the assignment and will be set up with complimentary accommodations at Buffalo Bill’s Resort & Casino and at an official Las Vegas BikeFest hotel on Fremont Street. In addition, he will receive a complimentary Las Vegas BikeFest Ultimate pass registration for one, VIP parking, and participation in an Artistry In Iron celebrity builder meet and greet at the Cashman Center.
In return for this VIP status, the honorary contributor will be asked to live up to his title by writing us a short story of his experience of the ride and event. The end result will be will be published in the pages of American Iron Magazine as our annual Las Vegas BikeFest event coverage.
If you think you’ve got what it takes to cover this event for us, you need to submit a short essay (200 words) telling us why. All submissions need to be e-mailed to HonoraryContributor@AmericanIronMag.com no later than June 27. Be sure to include your contact info because the person we choose will be contacted directly before he is announced in the October 2011 issue of AIM. Please note that sufficient riding experience and a valid motorcycle license is required. Ready for some disclaimer stuff?
