With the winter’s snow finally starting to melt and the mercury in the thermostat slowly starting to climb, it’s time to shake off the seasonal blues, pull back the cover from your runabout, and get out in the water. And for those looking to get a chance at riding a brand new Sea-Doo, we at The Watercraft Journal are very happy to announce the first official date of the 2015 Test Ride Tour: May 2nd and 3rd.
Hosted by friends and longtime advertising supporters, America’s Motor Sports, the Sea-Doo Test Ride Tour will be taking over the familiar Nashville Shores shoreline in Nashville, Tennessee for two days, offering registrants and walk-ups an hour or so to chew up Percy-Priest Lake on Sea-Doo’s dime. The latest models will be on hand, from the innovative entry-level Spark to the luxurious three-seater GTX.
Last Spring The Watercraft Journal was lucky enough to spend a couple of days with the traveling Sea-Doo circus when they dropped into Nashville, Tennessee, and were impressed with everything the Sea-Doo Demo Tour crew had on hand to play with. Until the rest of the dates are announced, you can always check in with America’s Motor Sports for the best deals in the Middle South on all BRP products, including Sea-Doo, Can-Am and Spyder, as well as UTVs, SxS’, quads and motorcycles from the biggest names in the motorsports industry!
