If you’ve ever wanted to try riding a motorcycle (or know someone who would), now is your chance at Progressive IMS Outdoors, Carlisle Fairgrounds, Sept. 10-12. Attendees with no experience can enjoy their first ride with the help of Motorcycle Safety Foundation certified coaches within 45 minutes! Tickets are available for purchase here: https://motorcycleshows.com/pennsylvania.
The Motorcycle Industry Council’s Ride With Us Moto Intro program is a free experience to IMS ticket holders interested in learning how to ride. Motorcycles, riding gear, and coaching are provided.
“We’re already closing in on helping more than 500 people experience the exhilaration of their first ride,” said Cinnamon Kernes, MIC vice president of market expansion. “The sheer joy these new riders exude when they take their helmets off is truly inspirational.”
Motorcycling is a fun and fuel-efficient way to commute, and a great way to travel, explore, and recreate. Many people are discovering the benefits of riding. New motorcycle and scooter sales rose 11.4 percent in 2020, according to the Motorcycle Industry Council Retail Sales Reporting System, and the trend continues, with sales up 15.2 percent through the first half of 2021.
“IMS has great experiences for riders, now non-rider can join in the fun and experience their first ride,” Kernes said.
