Demo rides are on a first-come, first-served basis, so be sure to get there early, signing up does not guarantee you’ll get to ride. More importantly, make sure you bring a DOT approved helmet, eye protection, long pants and closed toed shoes to wear while riding, otherwise you’ll be turned away.  Kawasaki also recommends a long-sleeved shirt or jacket, gloves and boots.  If you are thinking of buying a Kawasaki, or trading up to a bigger motorcycle, this is the perfect chance to get the feel of the ride before you buy.
