“The World’s Longest Motorcycle Demo Ride”; talk about putting these bikes to the test! Thanks to Cycle Works Motorsports for giving us two Iconic American made motorcycles to ride from Canada’s West coast to Canada’s East Coast.
We have teamed up with Cycle Works Motorsports of Calgary-Edmonton and Polaris industries Inc. they have supplied us with two fantastic brand-new motorcycles, the Victory Cross Country Magnum for Angela and the Indian Chieftain for Troy.
Riding Coast to Coast Across Canada and into the USA
Dipping our tires in the Pacific Ocean at Victoria British Columbia, riding East across this beautiful massive country to roll our tires into the Atlantic Ocean at St.Johns Newfoundland, is a great way to put the Chieftain and Magnum to the test. After exploring every road possible, we will head south into United States, hanging out in New York City, make our way across the Northern states, through the great plains and covering more than 25,000 km of great roads, amazing views and meeting hundreds of people. We thought the perfect way to wrap up the trip testing the bikes even more, would be to end up at the 75th Anniversary of Sturgis South Dakota Motorcycle Rally, the biggest in the World, where they are expecting 1.3million people!
GM of Cycle Works-Calgary is excited about the DEMO RIDE
As Vince Aiello the GM of the Calgary location states “Today there are a lot of motorcycles out there and what better way to show riders that we have the number one product out there for power, style, durability with a great mix of new styling with the old classic look. Its time for riders to see firsthand what we are talking about and who better to put these motorcycles to the test then Troy and Ang from Ride Stop n Go. Through rain or snow, wind and hail we know they will put these bikes through their paces, they have ridden hundreds of thousands of kilometres and we at Cycle Works Motorsports know what their thoughts mean to our industry”.
