Thanks to our MIC aftermarket members, this tremendous promotion again drove thousands of customers into dealerships everywhere, which was exactly what it was supposed to do.
Anaheim, CA (PRWEB) September 28, 2011
Kendon Industries, Inc., the innovator of Stand-Up™ motorcycle lifts and folding trailers, is pleased to congratulate Carol Burt, the winner of a Stand-Up™ motorcycle lift as part of her 8th place prize package in the recent Revive Your Ride WIN BIG Spring Giveaway promotion. Created and funded by the Aftermarket members of the Motorcycle Industry Council (MIC), the Revive Your Ride WIN BIG Spring Giveaway was designed specifically to build excitement for two-wheeling and to bring the riding community back to motorcycle, ATV, side by side, service and aftermarket retailers. Kendon is very proud to again be a part of this wonderful promotion and assist the MIC with the donation of a folding motorcycle lift.
Kendon is one of the dozens of MIC aftermarket companies involved with helping make this year’s promotion bigger and better than ever with its donation of the Stand-Up™ bike lift. The winner of Kendon’s folding lift is Carol Burt from Houma, Louisiana and a patron of Cycle World of Houma. Carol received a choice of any one of the four motorcycle lifts currently offered in the Kendon product line.
“Congratulations to Carol Burt and Cycle World of Houma,” said Kendon President Frank Esposito. “We’re honored to have been a part of this year’s WIN BIG Spring Giveaway. Last year’s promotion was a great success and this year it was even bigger. The promotion created excitement about riding and brought new and existing customers back into dealers. This year, there were even more incentives for customers, since they had the chance to win one of our motorcycle lifts or one of a hundred other great products, including the $5,000 Grand Prize!”
Started in 2010, Revive Your Ride is the industry’s first-ever collective promotional campaign. This year’s Revive Your Ride WIN BIG Spring Giveaway Grand Prize was a $5,000 pre-paid debit card. In addition to the Grand Prize, more than 100 products were donated by MIC aftermarket member companies for giveaways, ranging from leather jackets and helmets to motorcycle stands, windshields and saddlebags to magazine subscriptions and more.
Kendon’s motorcycle lifts are an exciting product that fits with the Revive Your Ride promotion very well. An enthusiast does not have to be a mechanic in order to benefit from using one of Kendon’s bike lifts. The Kendon folding motorcycle stand is perfect for anything from basic detailing to full maintenance to displaying your bike or cleaning. It allows for a safe, high capacity, working area with up-close access to a motorcycle. Kendon’s various motorcycle lift models come equipped with a 600 to 1000 pound capacity and are capable of easily lifting anything from a small scooter to a heavyweight touring motorcycle.
“Congratulations to everyone who participated in the Review Your Ride promotion this year,” said Frank Esposito, Kendon President and MIC aftermarket committee chair. “Thanks to our MIC aftermarket members, this tremendous promotion again drove thousands of customers into dealerships everywhere, which was exactly what it was supposed to do. Although this was only the second year, we still saw a dramatic increase in participation from MIC member companies who donated $40,000 in cash, cool products and great services as giveaways. We are already looking forward to the fall promotion beginning October 1 through November 30 and hope to use the momentum from this promotion to make the next Revive Your Ride event even better.”
