BMW joins AMA International Women & Motorcycling Conference

The AMA is pleased to announce that BMW Motorrad USA will be providing a demo fleet for attendees to test ride at the 2009 AMA International Women & Motorcycling Conference, presented by Harley-Davidson and Buell, Aug. 19-22 in Keystone, Colo.

"We’re thrilled that BMW will be on hand with some of their most popular street and dual-sport models for our conferees to ride," said Tigra Tsujikawa, marketing and special events manager for the AMA. "The Colorado Mountains play host to some of the best motorcycle roads in the country. Add the demo rides to a full schedule of great riding seminars, a fantastic vendor marketplace, numerous conference activities and the facility’s impressive amenities, and the AMA International Women & Motorcycling Conference is the top destination for women riders in 2009."

"BMW Motorrad USA is ecstatic to be rolling to Keystone for the AMA International Women & Motorcycling Conference," said Myrrh Davis, event and communications specialist for BMW Motorrad. "The Motorrad team will offer demo rides on new low-seat and low-frame models, along with our standard-height models. We will also arrive with a fist full of quarters and laundry detergent for those playing with us in the dirt at our Dual Sport Demonstration Area. And with inspiring seminar speakers Heather Lewis and Erin Ratay, it will be difficult to say ‘no’ to the thrill of an off-road foray."

The 2009 AMA International Women & Motorcycling Conference, presented by Harley-Davidson and Buell, is the country’s premier event for women motorcyclists. With the theme "Riding to New Heights," the conference not only honors the contributions of women riders to motorcycling’s past and present, it also celebrates the fast-growing role that women riders are playing in the future of motorcycling.

The registration fee covers admission to all seminars, as well as opening ceremonies on Aug. 19, a barn dance on Aug. 20 and a closing banquet on Aug. 22. Both the barn dance and closing banquet include dinner.

Registration is $165 through Aug. 3, which includes a commemorative t-shirt. Registration after Aug. 3, as well as on-site registration, will cost $185. Participants can register now at, or by phone by calling (800) AMA-JOIN. While the event focuses on women riders, it is not limited to women. Men are welcome to participate with a paid registration.
