AMA BMW riding series contest winner named

Kentucky man wins 2010 BMW F800 GS

By Motorcycle.Com Staff, Mar. 19, 2010

Doug Carter of Eubank, Ky., was named the winner of a new BMW F800 GS for taking part in the 2009 AMA BMW National Adventure Riding Series.

The riding series features off-road events in several states, and all participants were entered into a draw for the 2010 BMW F800 GS. Carter entered the drawing after taking part in the Renfro Valley Adventure Ride in Kentucky.

Ive been riding motorcycles since I was five and Ive always been a dual-sport/adventure kind of rider, says Carter.  I had wanted to get a bigger enduro bike that would allow me to take my wife on some of my off-road adventures.  Now, I can do that.  For some reason, she trusts me.

Carters smaller-displacement dual-sport had mechanical problems during the ride, but Carter says hes looking forward to riding in the 2010 adventure riding series on his new bike.

We congratulate Doug on his prize and hope that he has many more AMA BMW National Adventure Riding Series events ahead of him, says Laurence Kuykendall, BMW Motorrad community and communications manager. For certain, this season will be one of his best ever. There is no better motorcycle for tackling rugged backroads and two-track trails than the incredibly capable F 800 GS.

The AMA BMW National Adventure Riding Series returns in 2010 with another BMW motorcycle draw. The 2010 series is open to AMA members and includes events in Alaska, California, Ohio, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Oregon, Washington, North Carolina, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, New Jersey, Alabama and Arizona.
