KTM AMA National Adventure Riding Series Schedule Announced

KTM AMA Adventure Ride LogoAdventure motorcycle riding continues to grow, with new models and new opportunities to explore the unknown from coast to coast. Rider looking for organized routes and rallies with fellow ADVers need look no further than the KTM AMA National Adventure Riding Series, which has events in nearly every region of the country.

AMA Recreational Riding Manager Heather Wilson said that the series has served a number of adventure motorcyclists since its inception in 2007, and is continuing that tradition for 2018. “Many men and women are upgrading to larger, more versatile bikes to explore highways and back roads,” Wilson said. “We are proud to provide AMA members with opportunities to get out and ride. And we appreciate KTM’s support for the series and the company’s commitment to the adventure riding segment.”

For 2018, the series is once again sponsored by KTM. “KTM is excited to return as a sponsor. We saw fantastic growth in the series in 2017,” said KTM Ride Orange Manager Mark Hyde. “Our staff had a great time meeting the riders at many of the national adventure rides this year and we have expanded our staff to support even more events next year.”

The 2018 KTM AMA National Adventure Riding Series schedule has 20 events throughout the country. Some longtime national adventure riding event organizers remain on the schedule, while other organizers who have been hosting adventure rides for many years have been added.

Returning this year is the KTM East Coast Adventure Rider Rally. The event is hosted by Pine Barrens Adventures LLC, and KTM will provide additional support.
