MONCTON, NB (February 7, 2017) – The Motorcycle & ATV Show-Moncton is just days away from rolling into the Moncton Coliseum to give enthusiasts their first live look at the new 2017 motorcycle, scooter, ATV and side-by-side models from the biggest brands in the business.

The event is the only Atlantic stop on Power Sport Services’ Canada-wide, seven-city motorcycle show tour. “It’s an ideal opportunity to take a look at newest models of open road, track and trail vehicles, hop on, compare models and talk to industry experts,” says show manager Neil Fardy.

This year’s event will again lead off with She Rides Nite on Friday, February 10, featuring a draw for a two-night getaway to White Point beach resort in Nova Scotia and half-price admission after 5:00 p.m. for the female riding enthusiasts.

Throughout the weekend, there will be other prize draws, exciting exhibits and entertainment for riders of all ages. This includes the Yamaha Riding Academy, which introduces kids to the sport in a safe, supervised environment. Children 6 to 12 years old receive instruction from the experts from Yamaha, get geared up in the latest safety equipment and then take to the track to test their skills and practice.

Clinton Smout will also be back to give “how to” sessions on riding over obstacles and gravel roads, picking up a fallen motorcycle and slow speed riding techniques.
