International Motorcycle Shows: Demo Rides

IMS Demo Rides

The Progressive International Motorcycle Shows provides the opportunity to test some of the latest new model releases in five select markets.

Don’t miss your opportunity to participate in these manufacturer-sponsored demo rides at the IMS in Dallas, San Mateo, Long Beach, Greenville and Daytona.

IMS Demo rides give you the unique opportunity to test ride a brand new motorcycle to see what makes and models best fit your riding style.

Brands vary by market, but licensed motorcyclists can try out various vehicles from Can-Am Spyder Roadster, Harley-Davidson, Kawasaki, Star, Triumph, Victory and Yamaha.

There is no charge for Demo motorcycle rides- it’s just another great attendee benefit to add to your show experience.

Licensed motorcyclists (permits not allowed) who bring their helmets and proper riding gear (including enclosed shoes, jacket and pants) are encouraged to give the latest motorcycles a test on the open road. The manufacturer-sponsored demo rides are typically held on Saturday and Sunday during daylight hours (as weather permits).

Interested? Sign up at the outdoor manufacturer displays – but hurry, spots are limited and fill up early.
