Alisa Clickenger and Women’s Motorcycle Tours Partner with Indian Motorcycle and Polaris Slingshot for Women’s Motorcycle Festival and Conference

Indian Motorcycle and Polaris Slingshot help create opportunity for women motorcycle riders and passengers to come together, learn and connect at summer event

Women’s Motorcycle Tours has announced a partnership with Indian Motorcycle and Polaris Slingshot for the Women’s Motorcycle Festival & Conference, August 19-22, 2021. Indian Motorcycle and Polaris Slingshot will be promoting the event and supporting conference attendees for the 4-day landmark event in Arlington, VA.

“When Polaris asks for rider input, they do indeed listen. And that’s the reason so many women are turning to the Indian Motorcycle and Slingshot brands of motorcycles,” said Alisa Clickenger, Women’s Motorcycle Tours’ Founder and Event Producer. “Indian Motorcycle and Polaris Slingshot are doing an outstanding job of supporting female riders, the events we create for ourselves, and truly listening to the female riding community when it comes to their product development. It’s really an honor to work with them in support of women motorcycle riders and bring forth these events.”

Indian Motorcycle and Polaris Slingshot are excited about supporting the first LIVE Women’s Motorcycle Festival & Conference. During the event, they will be hosting a Hospitality Walk which will welcome lady riders as they arrive at the conference, as well as presenting during the General Session portion of the event. Jessica Kubalek, Senior Platform Manager for Indian Motorcycle, and Collett Mazula, Senior Marketing Manager for Polaris Slingshot, will

both be speaking at the conference. These women will be sharing their inspirational and informative presentation with conference attendees. During the presentation, attendees will have the opportunity to hear directly from these two women who are working at the forefront of vehicle and brand development at Polaris.

Indian Motorcycle and Polaris Slingshot will be the title sponsor for the Outdoor Festival portion of the event on Saturday and Sunday, which will feature a wide range of activities for Powersports enthusiasts including demo rides on their latest models. The Outdoor Festival is open to the public and riders from all around the country – male and female – are encouraged to participate in the festival atmosphere and take these vehicles for a test ride.

Hospitality Walk

Riders will arrive in Arlington, Virginia, on August 19, 2021. After the exhilarating cross-country motorcycle ride honoring women and celebrating the 19th Amendment, Women’s Right to Vote, Indian Motorcycle and Polaris Slingshot will welcome the riders and other conference guests with a cold towel, a bottle of water, and a gear check station. A welcome bag filled with beautifully crafted gifts courtesy of Indian Motorcycle and Polaris Slingshot will be given to attendees as they enter for the weekend celebration and kick off the Women’s Motorcycle Festival & Conference.

General Session: Education

The Women’s Motorcycle Festival & Conference General Session of the four-day event is made possible by Indian Motorcycle and Polaris Slingshot. Between sessions the audience will enjoy snacks, movement, and fun activities to keep attendees energized, engaged, and entertained. All presentations will be in front of a live audience as well as streamed online for virtual attendees.

Outdoor Festival

A celebration of this size wouldn’t be complete without a festival featuring what motorcyclists love to enjoy – the great outdoors. Riders, conference guests, VIPs and the public will be able to join in the fun, festival atmosphere. Vendors, food trucks, product demonstrations, entertainment, and more will be included in the outdoor festival portion of the four-day event. Both Indian Motorcycle and Polaris Slingshot will be on site all weekend offering demo rides.

Indian Motorcycle is driven by their pioneering spirit, commitment to American craftsmanship and building the highest quality motorcycles sought after around the world. Polaris Slingshot looks, sounds and drives like nothing else on the road today. With its open air cockpit placing you five inches off the ground, Slingshot delivers a one of a kind experience on three wheels.

”More women are riding than ever before and Indian Motorcycle and Polaris Slingshot are proud to support and celebrate the growth of female riding by partnering with events like the Women’s Motorcycle Festival & Conference. Women’s Motorcycle Tours shares our mission to fuel the passions of women hitting the road on two or three wheels,” said Joey Lindahl, Senior Marketing Manager, Customer Growth at Polaris.
