Motorcyclists are dying on Arizona roadways and that number is increasing, giving the State of Arizona the challenge to help reduce motorcycle crashes and fatalities. Experts say enough is enough.
Motorcycle safety and awareness is important
As a result, on Sunday, March 5, 2017, the third annual “Riding for the Long Haul” event will be held at the Shrine Auditorium & Convention Center, 552 N. 40th Street, Phoenix, Ariz., from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. During the day-long event, the Arizona Motorcycle Safety and Awareness Foundation (AMSAF), State of Arizona and numerous healthcare, motorcycle business, insurance, and industry sponsors and leaders, will showcase how they are working together to help change the alarming statistics through motorcycle training for the 75% of riders who have no formal training.
Motorcycle enthusiasts will have the opportunity to engage in interactive education and see the latest in safety gear. Entertainment during the event will include a motorcycle drill team, food, a silent auction for motorcycle memorabilia, raffles, live music, and the latest in motorcycle technology. In addition, there will be more than $10,000 in raffle prizes including a grand prize drawing worth over $2000. There also will be interactive activities, safety demonstrations, and vendors.
Riding for the Long Haul will help educate Arizona residents and communities about the critical need to reduce motorcycle crashes and fatalities. Sponsors for the event include title sponsor Dignity Health and Governor’s Office of Highway Safety along with many other key sponsors including Breyer Law, ADOT, Law Tigers, RideNow, TEAM Arizona, Desert Wind Harley Davidson and other key supporters of motorcycle safety. Keynote speakers from the State of Arizona and the community will be present. All profits from Riding for the Long Haul will benefit AMSAF and its mission to provide discounted motorcycle training scholarships and endorsement in the State of Arizona.
