RICHMOND, Va. - The Virginia Motorcycle Dealers Association is inviting motorcycle riders to go on the ultimate passport tour of the Commonwealth with The Grand Motorcycle Tour of Virginia.

From the Blue Ridge Mountains to the Chesapeake Bay, motorcyclists are invited to ride the scenic byways and highways of the “Old Dominion” through Oct. 22, earning points by visiting local businesses along the way. Those who earn enough points and bonus points will be entered to win prizes from sponsors, including a pair of Sena Technologies SMH10 Bluetooth units worth more than $400.

Tour co-organizer John Dwyier said the event gives riders the chance to explore a whole summer’s worth of adventure across Virginia.

“Some riders will go on a portion of the tour for a weekend. Some are able to ride all the routes of the entire state over the course of the six-month span of the tour,” he said. “Not only are we helping sustain and promote our state’s economy, but the nearly 1,000 riders who take part are also exposed to parts of the state they may not have otherwise explored.”

Two riders who participate in the tour will take home the Sena SMH10  Dual. The unit attaches to the rider’s or passenger’s helmet and allows him to connect wirelessly via Bluetooth to a cell phone, mp3 player, GPS and to be able to talk to up to three other riders or passengers in full duplex through intercom for a distance of up to one-half mile.
