Laurie Paetz, the show manager of the Motorcycle and ATV show Edmonton shares with us that each year the number of ladies attending the show grows, and that this reflects the trend of increasing numbers of women taking up the sport.  Women are not merely along for the ride anymore.
Manufacturers have taken note of this and are adapting to this trend by coming up with models more suitable for the female frame and stature.

She Rides Night 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.

The Motorcycle & ATV Show also offers plenty for the rest of the family. 
Look for Yamaha’s ‘how to sessions’, the Yamaha Riding Academy for kids from 6-12,  the Ground n’ Gravity Freestyle show will be flying high into the air.
Look for Craig Latimer, Jordan Szoke and his son Wolfgang Szoke, who at 4 years of age, proves you are never too young to start riding.

The riding lifestyle is as much about the freedom as it is about the camaraderie.  There are numerous clubs and associations that focus on different aspects of riding or charity rides for those with similar interests

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.
