American Motorcyclist Association announces 2019 Beta AMA National Dual Sport Series schedule

Riders can select from 16 events across the country

AMA Press Release

PICKERINGTON, Ohio — The American Motorcyclist Association has released the schedule for the 2019 Beta AMA National Dual Sport Series, presented by Kenda Tires, featuring 16 multi-day events organized by AMA-chartered clubs and promoters in 12 states.

Dual sport motorcycling combines on-highway riding with off-highway exploration. Dual sport bikes are street-legal motorcycles that are capable of navigating single-track trail. The Beta AMA National Dual Sport Series, presented by Kenda Tires, is a series of the best organized dual-sport rides in the country. Since 1987, participants have explored some of the most remote parts of America on routes mapped by local experts.

The title sponsor of the series is Beta, and one lucky series participant will win a Beta motorcycle at the end of the 2019 series.

"The 2019 series marks Beta's fifth year as the title sponsor for the AMA National Dual Sport Series, and we are looking forward to more," Beta USA President Tim Pilg said. "The series has been a great asset to our business and has helped us to grow our dual sport model sales. We hand out goodie bags to all of the event participants, and the series also allows our dealers to display at the events. It is a win-win the way we see it."

AMA Recreational Riding Manager Heather Wilson said the series attracts both casual trail riders and former racers, and many events feature alternate routes that appeal to different levels of rider skill.

"The fellowship found in dual sport riding is unparalleled," Wilson said. "There is no better way to enjoy some amazing trails, while knowing a few hundred other participants are there to support you, whether it's your first dual-sport event or you are returning to tackle a difficult trail section."

The terrain for dual sport events is as varied as the country itself, from thick forests to desert sand. Routes feature a mix of private and public land throughout the series.

Supporting sponsors for 2019 include AMA Member Benefits Partner ADVmoto. Event participants will be entered to win products from sponsors Seat Concepts and IMS Products.
