THIS ONE’S FOR THE GIRLS

EDMONTON, AB (January 4, 2016) – The Motorcycle & ATV Show – Edmonton presented by Dalton Timmis Insurance takes over the Expo Centre, Northlands from January 15th – 17th, 2016.  The doors open at noon on Friday and remain open until 5:00 pm on Sunday.

As we start to turn our thoughts to warm weather and clear roads there is no better time to pick out your dream ride for the 2016 season than at the Motorcycle & ATV Show – Edmonton. This is Edmonton’s only showcase for all the new makes and models from all the major manufacturers.  Talk to the experts, and hop on and compare models.  If a new bike isn’t what you are after there is an enormous selection of aftermarket accessories, gear, apparel, destination travel locations, clubs and associations and charity rides to check out.

The Show kicks off on Friday with the annual SHE Rides Night when women receive half price admission after 5:00 pm.  This special evening is all about encouraging females that are into riding or are thinking about riding to grab a few girls friends and make a night of it.  Check out all the female friendly models available.  New at the Motorcycle & ATV Show – Edmonton is the Torch Motorcycles Revv-olution.  Their exhibit will encompass various aspects of riding including gear and apparel that is specifically designed for the female rider.  There will be a number of ladies on site with their handbuilts willing and eager to chat with other interested riders.  The research, data collection and development of technology that Torch Motorcycles does will be of interest to all riders.

Once again Canadian Kawasaki has generously provided a 2016 Kawasaki Ninja 300 to be given away to one lucky lady.  The lightweight Kawasaki Ninja is inspired supersport line and provides a thrilling and agile ride, powered by a compact but potent engine.  It boasts nimble handling and balanced suspension and a silky-smooth ride, irresistible to experienced track riders as well as novice road riders looking to sharpen their skills.  Enter to qualify for your chance to win.

The NORAL and Canadian Vintage Motorcycle Group’s exhibit will feature a number of bikes dating back to the 1920’s.  These bikes have been maintained by their owners for well over 80 years.  This unique display highlights the pride these owners have for their prized possessions.  It is more than just a hobby, it is a passion.

If you want your kids to get in on the action, the Yamaha Riding Academy is just the ticket. Sign up for a session and expose your “wannabe” rider to the basics and safety of off road riding.  Children 6-12 years old will have the opportunity to receive instruction from the experts from Yamaha, get geared up in the latest safety equipment and then take to the track to test their skills and practice.  This is an excellent opportunity to introduce kids to the sport in a safe, supervised, non-threatening environment

Motor Madness and Mayhem comes to the Hall D throughout the weekend, this MX Freestyle Show will feature two side-by-side ramps which is sure to make for some fierce stunt competition among the members of the team.  This year’s freestyle team includes Keith Sayers, Heath Frisby, Nick Dunne and Albertan Billy Kohut flying through the air, while fellow Canadian Craig Latimer takes to the arena floor to perform burnouts, wheelies and other street style stunts.

There is so much to see and do for every member of the family at the 2016 Motorcycle & ATV Show – Edmonton.

The Show will wrap up on Sunday at 5:00 with one lucky show goer poised to ride away on a 2016 Bonneville 900 Street Twin. This grand prize has been graciously provided by Triumph Motorcycles and is valued at $12,000.
