Women’s Motorcycle Tours has announed Suzuki Motor USA, LLC as a sponsor of the Suffragists Centennial Motorcycle Ride, July 31 – August 20, 2021 and the Women’s Motorcycle Festival & Conference, August 19 – 22, 2021.
During the ride, Suzuki will be represented by Wendy Crockett, winner of the 2019 Iron Butt Rally, who will be riding from Portland, Oregon to Arlington, Virginia where she will showcase the experience for both Women’s Motorcycle Tours and SMC through video and photo.
“I am so happy that Suzuki is joining us on the Centennial Ride. They were a key supporter of my 2016 Sisters’ Centennial Motorcycle Ride cross-country event and it is fun to be working with them once again,” said Clickenger. “Suzuki makes terrific motorcycles, and I am delighted that Wendy Crockett will be riding a Suzuki V-STROM 1050XT as it’s the ideal cross-country motorcycle for this type of adventure.”
