BUELL ANNOUNCES AMERICAN ADVENTURE GRANT CONTEST
Grand Prize Includes a new 2009 Buell XB12X Ulysses Motorcycle
Buell Motorcycle Company announced the American Adventure Grant program, which will award the grand prize winner of an essay contest describing the ultimate American riding adventure a new 2009 Buell Ulysses XB12X motorcycle, $2,500 in credit for Buell Parts & Accessories, and a check for $2,500 to complete the trip of his or her dreams.
"Since we introduced the Ulysses in 2005, riders have been sending us ideas for two-wheel adventures that they’ve dreamed of taking on one of our bikes. For many of them, something was getting in the way of their dream ride - they didn’t have a bike, there wasn’t enough money, they didn’t have the right gear. We wanted to put together a program that would help make their dreams a reality, and the Buell American Adventure Grant will do just that for one lucky winner," said Chad Hockerman, Buell Market Outreach Project Manager.
To enter, participants must complete an online profile and submit a 250-word online essay describing their trip to http://www.buell.com/en_us/experience/adventure-grant/ by the deadline of 5 pm EST on June 23, 2009.
In their online essay, applicants are asked to describe their vision of the ultimate American on- or off-road riding adventure, including destinations, the planned route, their reasons for wanting to complete the trip, and a description of previous riding experience.
All applicants must be legal U.S. 50-state residents at the time of entry, age 18 or older, and possess a valid motorcycle operator’s license, but do not need to be current owners of a Buell motorcycle.
