Just got an email from someone at the Women's Motorcyclist Foundation and it has a code for a discount to the International Motorcycle Show when you buy advance tickets. I don't know if you all have gotten this or not but thought I'd share it. Every buck helps!
Alas, I've heard that BMW is only going to be at the Long Beach, CA and NYC shows... :-(

Dear Women Motorcyclists & Our Supporters:
The Progressive International Motorcycle Show Series has given the Women's Motorcyclist Foundation a code whereby you and your friends can get discount tickets by purchasing them online. Go to www.motorcycleshows.com, check BUY TICKETS, pick your show. Scroll down the page until you find the location to enter the code. Key in: WMF2011
This option gives you $3.00 off your online purchase, with a $1.00 processing fee. Still, it‘«÷s a net savings of $2.00.
OTHER REASONS TO USE THE CODE:
1. It is a way to let Progressive Insurance, title sponsor of the International Motorcycle Shows, and Advanstar Communications, producers and promoters of the show know that WOMEN RIDERS EXIST IN LARGE NUMBERS.
2. Any time we can show ourselves to be a large consumer group, we win. As a recognized consumer group to be cultivated and courted, women motorcyclists will find increasing opportunities for themselves in terms of products, services, and JOBS.
3. We cannot be taken seriously if we are not continually VISIBLE in the ‘«£NUMBERS.‘«ō Everything is data driven today.
SO PLEASE: IF YOU ARE GOING TO ONE OF THE PROGRESSIVE INTERNATIONAL MOTORCYCLE SHOWS, BUY YOUR TICKETS ON LINE VIA CODE # WMF2011
OTHER WAYS FOR US TO COUNT: SAY THANK YOU‘«™ post a message on one of the social networks:

Progressive Insurance and Advanstar Communications have done an incredible job in supporting Women in Motorcycling:
Progressive Insurance, Title sponsor of the Progressive International Motorcycle Show Series, is also the Women‘«÷s Motorcyclist Foundation‘«÷s Title Sponsor of all of our programs. In both capacities, Progressive has done an incredible job in promoting Women in Motorcycling.
Advanstar Communications, the promotion group which has hosted the International Motorcycle Shows for 30 years, has partnered with the Women‘«÷s Motorcyclist Foundation, Inc. since 1994.
During the last three years, both Progressive Insurance and Advanstar Communications have supported the Women‘«÷s Motorcyclist Foundation, Inc. efforts to promote women in motorcycling and to put breast cancer into the history books.
Again, hearing from women motorcyclists and our supporters in large numbers helps to let these organizations know we appreciate their efforts and encourages them to stay these positive courses of action.
We appreciate your support and wish you a wonderful holiday season.
Thanks so much.
