EDMONTON, AB (December 28, 2016) - The Motorcycle & ATV Show – Edmonton is the manufacturers’ showcase of all the new 2017 models. The Show will take place at the Expo Centre, Northlands January 13-15, 2017, with doors opening at noon on Friday.
“Every year the number of ladies attending our Show grows, which reflects the trend of increasing numbers of women taking up the sport,” says Laurie Paetz, Show Manager, “ woman are no longer willing to just be a passenger, and manufacturers are adapting by coming up with models more suitable to the female frame and stature.”
She Rides takes place on Friday, January 13th. Ladies will receive half price admission after 5:00 pm. Industry experts will be on hand to guide women through the bike buying process, and help identify which bike would be just right for your needs. The highlight of the evening will be a draw for a brand new 2017 Ninja 300 motorcycle provided by Canadian Kawasaki Motors and Echo Cycle. This bike is lightweight, agile and provides a super smooth riding experience. One lucky lady will start the 2017 riding season off in style.
Yamaha “How to Sessions” conducted by expert Clinton Smout will provide riders with tips and tricks to safely navigate some common riding situations and obstacles, including slow speed riding techniques, how to effectively maneuver on gravel roads, as well as the proper technique to safely pick up a fallen motorcycle.
