If someone gave you a brand new 2009 Buell Ulysses XB12X, what would you do with it, where would you go? Buell wants to know, in fact, if you sit down and write a 250 word essay to describe your idea of the ultimate American on or off-road riding adventure, where you would go, the routes you would follow, why you want to take the trip and a little bit about you, you might get the chance to live your dream. Buell is giving away a new Ulysses XB12X to one lucky winner and it could be you! They're also including money for parts and accessories and travel expenses. Pretty cool.
You must be a legal U.S. 50-state resident at the time of entry, at least 18 years of age and have a valid motorcycle license.
A few months ago, we told you about the winner of the Build It and Win It contest and several comments said, "Man, I wish I knew about that contest sooner." OK, now you know about this one right at the start. You have until June 23rd to write the essay so give it some thought and get started. Someone's going to get the bike, might as well be you.
BUELL ANNOUNCES AMERICAN ADVENTURE GRANT CONTEST
Grand Prize Includes a new 2009 Buell XB12X Ulysses Motorcycle
Buell Motorcycle Company today 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 on the Buell Contest Entry Page 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.
