Femmoto announces additions to the 2007 event
Suzuki street demos, Honda track demos & Motorcycle Safety Foundation classes newly confirmed for the event in Las Vegas on October 5-7
Femmoto is very proud to announce the addition of two powerhouse brands to the Femmoto family. Suzuki is participating in the street demo program, with Honda fielding demo bikes for on-track riding. The addition of these two brands to the already announced line-up including returning brands Kawasaki, Aprilia, Buell, Ducati, Kymco and for the first time, Harley-Davidson, is a unique opportunity for female motorcycle enthusiasts from every background to test the latest machines on the street and on the track.
Discover Today’s Motorcycling has also upped the ante in this event by holding concurrent Motorcycle Safety Foundation beginner and experienced street training classes at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. "We are so excited about the additions to this year’s event," says Bonnie Strawser, Femmoto Director. "With so many brands joining us, the introduction of street demos and now MSF training schools on both dirt and street, we are confident that we are offering the most comprehensive event for female riders ever presented. The goal has always been to encourage new and experienced female riders, and now Femmoto has a program no matter what your skill level."
Femmoto has events for the other sex as well. A Friday track day on the full "Classic Road Course" is open to male and female guests of Femmoto registrants. Run by track-day masters Sportbike Track Time, it's an opportunity for male and female guests to enter(on the track on their own machines) Novice, Intermediate, and Expert classes. There will also be the opportunity for men to sign up for the street demos on Friday, Saturday and Sunday - however space will be limited for male guests, so early registration is highly encouraged.
Jessica Prokup, representing Discovery Today's Motorcycling, speaks from experience. "I have had the chance to participate in Femmoto in the past, and I think it’s a fantastic chance for women to ride many types of bikes in a fun, supportive atmosphere. Hosting MSF classes at the event this year truly widens the opportunity for female riders of all levels." Media who are interested in participating in an MSF class during Femmoto should contact Jessica at (949) 727-4211 x3027 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
"We have kept an eye on the Femmoto event for several years now," says Jon Seidel. "This year it worked out to be on the track for demos. We have many female riders join our family every year, and know that once a rider has a chance to try a Honda, they will appreciate our engineering, performance and quality that are all hallmarks of the Honda brand."
Based at the stunning Las Vegas Motor Speedway, just minutes from downtown Las Vegas, Femmoto has grown considerably over the years. Offering not just a motorcycle experience, but the opportunity to meet the female riding community, the event draws key brands, industry executives and female riding enthusiasts from across the United States and Canada.
