“A driving force at our company is the love of riding,” said FMF founder Don Emler. “We ride every chance we get, and that fuels our passion to build the best products possible. Our goal is to help our customers get the most out of their riding experience, and to that end we’re pleased to support the AMA and the 2012 AMA Husqvarna National Dual-Sport Series, presented by FMF. Dual-sport riding is some of the most fun you can have on two wheels without the high pressure of a competitive environment. We’re happy to be a part of this series, and I’m personally looking forward to throwing my leg over my motorcycle and experiencing these great rides myself.”
The AMA Husqvarna National Dual-Sport Series, presented by FMF, features the country’s best-organized dual-sport rides. Run by AMA-chartered clubs and promoters, the events include miles of challenging trail connected by scenic backcountry roads. Rides span two days or more, with one-day participation optional. The courses, which extend to 100 miles or more each day, are well marked and detailed on provided route sheets. Although non-competitive in nature, the challenging, national-caliber terrain is designed to bring out the best in each rider.
