RevZilla parent company Comoto is reimagining what motorcycle events look like and is planning two festivals for this summer's riding season.
These new motorcycle-specific outdoor events aim to break down barriers to riding and serve all kinds and styles of riders, from experienced motorcyclists to new riders and even aspiring riders who are looking for a way to get into motorcycling. These three-day, family-friendly, inclusive events will feature demo rides, educational seminars, bike shows, racing and a chance to meet representatives of top brands in motorcycling.
The first Get On! Motorcycle Festival is scheduled for May 21 through 23 at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth. Demo rides from Indian and other manufacturers will be available to licensed motorcyclists and both adults and children will have the chance to ride Super73 and Stacyc ebikes. Two other events are also taking place during the weekend, with the exclusive U.S. site of the AMD World Championship custom bike show qualifier and a round of the American Flat Track racing series at the Texas Half Mile at the Speedway during the weekend festival. You can meet popular moto-vloggers and get information from representatives of dozens of gear, parts and accessories manufacturers. You'll also have the chance to win prizes in the Rever Ride Challenges for logging miles and completing challenges with the ultimate ride planning app.
The second event, the Get On! Adventure Festival, will take place July 15 through 18 in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The event's base camp will be the center of activities and provide great on-road and off-road riding nearby. More details on the Adventure Festival will come later.
“Comoto’s family of brands exists to provide the best riding experience to all riders all over the world, whether V-twin, adventure, off-road, street, dirt, men, women, youth — you name it,” says Comoto CEO Ken Murphy.
Comoto is working with local and state health officials in Texas to ensure the event complies with appropriate safety guidelines. Protocols will include social distancing, required face coverings, temperature screenings and sanitation stations, among others. Additional changes may be made as conditions evolve between now and the date of the festival.
While other events have become more general by focusing on a variety of powersports interests, the Get On! festivals keep the focus squarely on motorcyclists. Advance tickets for May's Get On! Motorcycle Festival are now on sale and cost $15. Tickets are $20 at the door. A SuperTicket for both the festival and the AFT race is $39 in advance. Children age 12 and under are admitted free.
