2017 AMA National Adventure Riding Series Schedule

2017 AMA Adventure Riding Series Schedule
Ultimate Motorcycling Online Editor Ron Lieback

The American Motorcyclist Association has released the schedule for its 2017 AMA National Adventure Riding Series, which features 20 dates.

The series was created for larger-cc adventure bikes, such as BMW R 1200 GS, KTM 1190, and Ducati Multistrada machinery. There are always a few routes available based on skill level or what type of riding you want for the day. Camping and commodore highlights each calendar event during the AMA National Adventure Riding Series.

“The AMA National Adventure Riding Series was developed in 2007 due to the growing interest in larger, adventure-style motorcycles,” said AMA Recreational Riding and Volunteer Manager Marie Wuelleh. “Many dual sport trails are not conducive to bigger machines, and clubs and promoters have developed trails specifically to meet the needs of these riders.”
