FIVE MANUFACTURERS TO OFFER DEMO RIDES AT AMA WOMEN & MOTORCYCLING CONFERENCE
PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) has announced
that five major motorcycle manufacturers will offer demo rides at the 2002 AMA
Women & Motorcycling Conference, scheduled for June 29 through July 3 at West
Virginia Wesleyan College in Buckhannon, West Virginia.
BMW, Harley-Davidson/Buell, Honda, Kawasaki and Yamaha will bring fleets of new
models to the event, offering free demo rides to conference participants. Since
registration for the AMA Women & Motorcycling Conference is limited to 1,000,
and with plenty of free time built into the conference schedule, participants
will have a rare opportunity to ride and compare new motorcycles, without
waiting in long lines found at many other events.
The demo-ride program is just one feature of the 2002 AMA Women & Motorcycling
Conference. Participants can test their skills on a BattleTrax course, take off
on self-guided tours through the Allegheny foothills, attend a variety of
seminars and round-table discussions, and shop the vendor fair. A parade and
street party in Buckhannon, a motocross demonstration, and special opening and
closing celebrations are also planned.
On July 3, the conference's final day, participants have the option of attending
a Women's Motocross School, a Motorcycle Safety Foundation Dirt Bike School, or
an AMA EAGLES Workshop.
The first two AMA Women & Motorcycling Conferences were held in 1997 and 2000.
More than 700 women and men attended the 2000 conference, from 46 states,
Sweden, Australia and Canada.
West Virginia Wesleyan College, located in the foothills of the Allegheny
Mountains, was chosen as the site of the 2002 AMA Women & Motorcycling
Conference for its excellent facilities, and for its proximity to great
