Motorcyclists roll in AMA Get Out and Ride! Month

Get Out And Ride Together! is the theme for week two

PICKERINGTON, Ohio — AMA Get Out and Ride Together! Week kicks off this weekend, marking the second week of the American Motorcyclist Association’s (AMA) campaign to promote the fun and excitement of motorcycling in America during AMA Get Out and Ride! Month.

Riding together as couples, families, friends and clubs, hundreds of thousands of AMA members will take to the roads, trails and tracks all week long in celebration of the motorcycling lifestyle and everything that it has to offer.

Riders looking to get out and ride together this year need look no further than the AMA Yamaha Super Ténéré Adventure Riding Series, the AMA Husqvarna National Dual-Sport Series, presented by FMF, plus AMA National Conventions, AMA Grand Tours, AMA Gypsy Tours, AMA Signature Events and — new for 2012 — AMA Flash Tours. For complete details on each of these series, visit AmericanMotorcyclist.com > Riding.

AMA members and riders are encouraged to visit the AMA Facebook page at Facebook.com/AmericanMotorcyclist to share comments, ideas and information about places to ride, and to enter the AMA Get Out and Ride! Month trivia contest. Longtime AMA supporter Helmet House is rewarding one lucky AMA member each week with a Tour Master Saber Series 3 riding jacket during the trivia contest. The weekly winner will be drawn at random from correct AMA member submissions in the contest, and his or her name will be posted each Friday on both the AMA Facebook page and website. Contest rules are posted at www.americanmotorcyclist.com/Riding/GetOutAndRide/TriviaRules.aspx.

Another first for 2012 AMA Get Out And Ride! Month is Freedom Friday, which focuses on issues that threaten motorcycling. This week it’s untested E15 fuel (85 percent gasoline/15 percent ethanol), which has not been proven to be safe for motorcycle engines. More details and action steps are available here: http://capwiz.com/amacycle/issues/alert/?alertid=54681921.

Now in its second year, AMA Get Out and Ride! Month encourages motorcyclists everywhere to enjoy the thrill of riding in the dirt and on the street. AMA members are also encouraged to submit riding stories, photos and videos throughout AMA Get Out and Ride! Month to submissions@ama-cycle.org. The best stories will be featured on the AMA Get Out and Ride! Month blog.
