The following is a news release from the American Motorcyclist Association.

The American Motorcyclist Association announced that KYMCO USA will provide scooter demo rides at the fifth AMA International Women & Motorcycling Conference, presented by Harley-Davidson and Buell. The conference will take place Aug. 19-22 in Keystone, Colo.

"KYMCO scooters are easy and fun to ride, and because they are equipped with constant velocity transmissions (CVT), they offer riders with little or no shifting experience a great opportunity to participate in the sport," said Tigra Tsujikawa, marketing and special events manager for the AMA.

The KYMCO USA scooter product line includes a wide range of models and colors, including the sporty new 500cc Xciting. Other models range in engine size from 50-250cc, and many feature sleek European and retro styling. The Spartanburg, S.C.-based company has been on the U.S. powersports scene for more than 30 years, and today it distributes motor scooters, motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles manufactured by its parent company in Taiwan.

Registration for the fifth AMA International Women & Motorcycling Conference, presented by Harley-Davidson and Buell, costs $165 through Aug. 3. Registration after Aug. 3 (and any on-site registrations) will cost $185. The registration fee includes a commemorative t-shirt, and admission to all seminars as well as opening ceremonies on Aug. 19, a barn dance on Aug. 20, the International Street Party on Aug. 21 and a closing banquet on Aug. 22. Both the barn dance and closing banquet include dinner.

Participants can register now at https://home.ama-cycle.org/iwmc/registration/register.aspx or by phone by calling (800) AMA-JOIN. While the event focuses on women riders, it is not limited to women.
