Every May 1,000+ bikers roll through Guymon for something called the Five State Run, sometimes called the Five State Poker Run. It is basically a motorcycle event where you drive into five states in one day, pick up cards, and have a chance to win prizes based on your “poker” hand.

Fueling Up at the Outback
The night before Main Street Guymon hosts a welcoming event to the Five State Run riders called the Outback. There is dinner. Drinks. Music. A chance to check out all the bikes. And just a fun chance for the riders and the community to get together. Many local businesses contribute to the event.
The Guymon Ambassadors serve the food and drinks, and just keep things flowing at the Outback. Below are a few pictures of the event and the Ambassadors in action.
One of the best parts of doing this is meeting people. Just this year, I met people from as far away as Montana and a rider from Tulsa who has done it for 14 years. Always interesting stories!
Think About Coming
If you like motorcycles. Or these types of events. Or have never been out in this part of the world where fives states in one day in a 300 or so mile ride is possible. You should consider planning to ride next May.
Then come by and say “hi” at the Outback the night before!
