Riding season is here. Your bike is shined up, the gas tank is full, and you’re ready to hit a few motorcycle rallies. The country’s largest motorcycle insurer – Progressive – and boutique bike builder Sucker Punch Sally’s (SPS) are hitting the road too, and they’re sharing some swag along the way.

Progressive is now the official insurer for SPS, a motorcycle shop based in Scottsdale, Ariz. that specializes in custom production choppers. To celebrate this new relationship, Progressive and SPS will travel to motorcycle events across the country with an SPS custom chopper that attendees can enter to win. Attendees at two of the nation’s largest rallies – Sturgis and Lone Star – can also nab a free t-shirt, designed especially for Progressive by SPS. Additionally, Progressive employees will be on hand to answer questions and provide motorcycle insurance quotes.

“Sucker Punch Sally’s has a great reputation in the motorcycle community, and with our broad coverages for custom bikes and parts, it made sense to become its official insurer,” said Amanda Jones, motorcycle advertising manager for Progressive. “We can cover a decked-out SPS bike, your custom chrome tailpipe and more.”

To get your free limited-edition t-shirt, look for a voucher in one of many top motorcycle magazines or go to http:// motorcycle.progressive.com to download a coupon, and bring it to the Progressive booth at Thunder Road during Sturgis Bike Week in Sturgis, S.D., or on The Strand during the Lone Star Rally in Galveston, Texas.

In addition to its events above, rally attendees can also enter to win the SPS custom chopper in the Progressive booths at Delmarva Bike Week in Ocean City, Md.; Bikes, Blues and BBQ in Fayetteville, Ark. and more.
