2015 AMA Member Sweepstakes – Suzuki Boulevard M109R Winner
The American Motorcyclist Association has just announced yet another winner of a new bike. This time is was Richard Anderson of Santa Clara, Calif., who claimed his Suzuki Boulevard M109R.You might be wondering how Mr. Anderson came to own an all new Suzuki Boulevard M109R and the answer to that is simple: he’s just an average AMA member who won it in the 2015 AMA Member Sweepstakes.
“I’ve been a motorcyclist for 47 years,” said Anderson, 59, an AMA member since 2002. “I stay in the AMA mostly for the information obtained via the member magazine, such as legislation affecting motorcyclists, E15 gasoline, etc. I also enjoy the ride stories and the pictures of vintage motorcycles.”
“Congratulations to Richard Anderson on winning the Suzuki Boulevard M109R,” said Steve Bortolamedi, communications manager for Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. “You’re going to love this motorcycle. We look forward to reading your ride stories in American Motorcyclist magazine. And thanks to the AMA for the great work they do, increasing our riding opportunities, and keeping us well informed through the process.”
Mr. Anderson’s reasoning for becoming and staying an AMA member is sound. But that is just one of the many perks of being an AMA member nor was the Suzuki the only thing on the raffle block. Also up for grabs were four Tom-Tom GPS units, a Cardo Systems/Scala Rider G9 communications set, a Shark Kage ramp and 12 Guardian Weatherall Plus Motorcycle covers.
The Suzuki Boulevard M109R is a 1,783cc, liquid-cooled V-twin cruiser on an advanced chassis built for quick trips or cross-country treks, whatever you happen to have time for. The M109R’s engine does things in proper cruiser style: Low down torque and an exhaust note that will let anyone know you’re coming up behind them.
The sweepstakes was open to all AMA members who joined or renewed during 2015. Independent auditing and accounting firm Rea & Associates Inc. administered the sweepstakes. That’s it, become a member and get a chance to win a bike.
The AMA Member Sweepstakes returns for 2016 with more prizes, all of which will make your riding buddies a bit envious. Those joining or renewing their AMA memberships between Jan. 1, 2016, and Dec. 31, 2016, are automatically entered to win any of these 20 prizes:
