American Motorcyclist Association members attending the AMA National Convention being held in conjunction with the American International Motorcycle Expo at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., Oct. 16-19, can rent a motorcycle from Orlando EagleRider for just $99 a day — $60 off the standard rate of $159.
In addition to the significant savings on bike rentals, Orlando EagleRider is hosting an AMA National Convention kick-off party from 6-10 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 16, at the company’s 1150 Jetport Drive location. The kick-off party will feature live music, a motorcycle vendor area and an autograph session with AMA Motorcycle Hall of Famers. Food and drink will also be available during the party, and fans can meet acclaimed Hollywood actor Perry King, an avid motorcyclist and AMA board member.
While the bike rental discount is exclusive to AMA members, the free kick-off party is open to the public, and includes a two-hour guided ride that departs from the convention center and ends at EagleRider. The guided ride will start staging at 2 p.m. in the north/south parking lot adjacent to the free motorcycle parking area.
“EagleRider is a loyal supporter of the AMA and our members, and we’re most appreciative of this extremely generous offer,” said AMA Vice President of Operations Jeff Massey. “Tight schedules and logistics sometimes make it difficult to travel by bike. EagleRider has made it possible for motorcyclists to fly in to attend the AMA National Convention and still have the opportunity to sample some of the fantastic riding that central Florida has to offer.”
The kick-off party, ride and bike rental discount are just part of the AMA National Convention, which also includes informative seminars on a variety of motorcycling topics at the convention center from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 17, the annual AMA member meeting, an exclusive Friday luncheon with AMA Board of Directors Chair Maggie McNally-Bradshaw, the American Honda AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Friday evening, a Saturday street ride/fundraiser for breast cancer awareness, a Saturday adventure ride, early access to weekend motorcycle demo rides, and more.
