AMA Go Ride Safely! Week Focuses On Rider Responsibility And Driver Awareness
AMA Go Ride! Month, sponsored by the American Motorcyclist Association, rounds out its month-long motorcycling celebration with AMA Go Ride Safely! Week. Motorcyclists nationwide are encouraged to take rider training and use appropriate riding gear while motorists are urged to watch for motorcycles as millions of riders take to the roads.
Each week of AMA Go Ride! Month, “Freedom Friday” urges riders join the cause to fight for America’s motorcycling rights. Distracted driving is the focus during AMA Go Ride Safely! Week because inattentive driving poses a serious and increasing threat to motorcyclists everywhere.
AMA Go Ride! Month also provides prizes from AMA Benefit Partners to motorcyclists who follow the AMA Facebook page. During AMA Go Ride Safely! Week, Tour Master is providing a Tour Master Saber 3 Jacket and Color Rite is providing a $50 gift certificate. Anyone who “likes” or comments on a post on the AMA Facebook page by 4:45 p.m. EDT on April 25 is eligible to win. The winners will be chosen at random.
At the end of AMA Go Ride! Month, one Grand Prize winner will be chosen from everyone who “likes” or comments on an AMA Facebook page post between March 31 and 4:45 p.m. on May 2. The prize package includes a FLY Racing Roller Grande gear bag, a Cortech Super 2.0 8-liter tank bag, a $100 gift certificate from BikeBandit.com, a rental car voucher from Avis and one night’s lodging from Red Roof Inns.
