Activities, Visuals & Interview Opportunities:

"Ride" A Harley At The Show (with no prior riding experience) - Famous for their thundering motorcycles, Harley-Davidson will have their Jumpstart Experience at the show - a stationary support stand that allows participants to fire up the engine, give the throttle a twist and hear that unforgettable Harley sound, without turning a wheel. Media can try it for themselves.

She Rides Nite (Friday, February 19) - Women make up the fastest-growing segment of motorcycling and this is an evening of celebration for women who ride and those considering the sport. We'll have female riding experts and examples of riding gear designed for women available.

Yamaha Riding Academy For Kids - Just one of many kid and family-friendly activities at the Show, this popular feature introduces children, aged 6-12, to the world of riding with certified instructors and riding gear provided.  Media can take a ride and will get the hang of it even without prior motorcycle experience (as long as they can ride a bicycle).

New Product Walk About - A look at some of the new models and technology generating excitement within the industry this year. Lots of colourful models and opportunities for media to talk to industry and company experts.

Team Empire Freestyle Stunt Team - American stunt masters Nick "Apex" Brocha and Ernie "EDub" Vigil, travel the world showcasing their motorcycle stunt-riding prowess before live audiences. Opportunities to interview the team and get up close to their high-energy performances.

Plus several experts to talk about the business and enthusiast side of the motorcycle industry.
