So you went out and bought yourself a big ol’ ADV machine but you can’t find any of your friends who want to join you bashing their big and expensive beasts around the forest. What are you going to do? If you are looking for an organized ride with other like minded individuals you may want to considering buying some travel medical insurance and heading south of the border for one of the AMA’s Yamaha sponsored events in their Adventure Riding Series. The 2017 schedule of events includes twenty different two day rides located is a wide varieties of locations stretching from Florida to Oregon to Nevada. The caveat to the riding is that your bike be street legal and although they state that the rides are more target to ADV riding than say a hare scramble some of the riding locales and trails look quite challenging. One of the more interesting rides is a longtime run in its 34th year that takes the adventurous overland from Barstow, California to Las Vegas, NV in what the organizers cal a creative 400 mile route. The odds are that you may end up with a ding or two on your ADV machine but the good news is that you won’t be doing it alone and there are opportunities to win a prize or two. For 2016 Yamaha even included a Super Tenere for the grand prize. For more info on the 2017 AMA Adventure Series visit the website at http://www.americanmotorcyclist.com/Riding/Adventure-Riding
