For adventure riders, the KTM AMA National Adventure Riding Series, Presented by Kenda Tires, is just the thing for those who favor the big dual sport comfort and power needed for highway runs coupled with the suspension and tires desired for blasting down remote dirt roads.
The KTM AMA National Adventure Riding Series, Presented by Kenda Tires, offers the best routes, roads and two-track trail for showcasing the abilities of adventure bikes. Not only do these two-day events include ample, challenging rides that are well marked and thoughtfully designed by local clubs, but they are built around a full weekend of activities that typically includes bonfires, camping, food and prizes.
AMA membership is required for these national-level events. A one-event pass may be purchased for $20 (only available for purchase at the event) or a full AMA membership for $49 (online or at the event).
Participants in the series also have the opportunity to win prizes from the series sponsors at the end of the year.
