What is the Worlds Longest Motorcycle Demo Ride?
Ride Stop N Go has teamed up with Cycle Works Motorsports group of Alberta, Polaris Industries USA (manufacture of Indian and Victory Motorcycles) providing two of the most iconic brands of motorcycles; Indian and Victory for this world-renowned demo ride.
We will be riding from Coast to Coast across Canada, down through New York City, across the Northern States heading towards Sturgis South Dakota for the 75th Anniversary Rally. Polaris continues to impress the motorcycle world, with their Victory and Indian motorcycles, we said
“Let’s put them to the test”!
Troy and Ang from Ride Stop N Go are 2 hard-core motorcycle enthusiasts who, since 2010, have ridden all over North America in search of the Best Motorcycle Rides; they have been riding Harley Davidson motorcycles for many years. Over the past few years the friendly banter between Harley & Polaris (Victory & Indian) has created a lot of interesting stories and a buzz
“Are they really going to switch?” comments.
Troy is riding the New Indian Chieftain and Ang is riding the New Cross Country Magnum.

Connecting via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram
When we left on The Worlds Longest Motorcycle Demo Ride, we had our Friends Facebook Page, the 1st of July Facebook took our “Person” page down and converted it to a “Business” page!
For those who thought we had fallen off the face of the earth, we haven’t, we are unable to connect with each of you personally like we have previously! We are disappointed in this for sure and there is nothing we can do about it about and use the Business Page.
We are on twitter and Instagram as well, you can find us at @RideStopNGo.
We miss the personal touch with you, feel free to friend request to Troy or myself!
