Go Ride Together! is the theme for week two
PICKERINGTON, OH – April 8, 2013 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – AMA Go Ride Together! week, sponsored by the American Motorcyclist Association, launches today during the second week of AMA Go Ride! Month. AMA Go Ride Together! week showcases the fun of riding with family, friends and co-workers, including AMA clubs and the online motorcycle community.
Throughout AMA Go Ride! Month, the AMA is providing motorcyclists nationwide with information, entertainment, contests, prizes from Helmet House, Shoei, HelmetLok and Bikebandit.com. For details, be sure to visit www.americanmotorcyclist.com/riding/goride and the AMA Facebook page at www.facebook.com/americanmotorcyclist.
Riders looking to ride together need look no further than the AMA Up, Down, All-Around Flash Tour, a special edition of AMA Flash Tours with a contest for street and dirt riders. AMA members are invited to photograph a trip to the highest, lowest or most remote part of their state, or an historical or cultural landmark unique to the state. Each week a winner will be selected to receive a Helmetlok next-generation lock and cable set.
Another weekly contest, Freedom Friday, alerts riders to important issues that pose threats to motorcycling freedoms. This week the AMA is focusing on health-insurance discrimination against motorcyclists, one of the most important issues to AMA members. AMA members are encouraged to send in photos near hospitals, ambulances or anything medical-insurance related to illustrate their concern as a motorcyclist. Later this week, two lucky AMA members will win an AMA gift bag and a BikeBandit.com gift card.
Qualifying AMA members will also be entered into a month-end drawing for great Helmet House prizes, including a Shoei helmet, Tour Master Intake jacket and Cortech tank bags. Contest details can be viewed at www.americanmotorcyclist.com/riding/goride/contestdetails.
There are plenty of opportunities on tap throughout the riding season for riders to celebrate the theme of AMA Go Ride Together! week. Check out 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 and AMA Signature Events.
