Bikers Prepare to Gather to Set a World Record

Conyers, GA , July 9th, 2011–  Bikers and motorsports enthusiasts are always trying to set world records but they are usually speed related.  Not this weekend!  Mountain Motorsports in Conyers GA is hosting a record-setting event to establish the record for the world’s largest safety presentation!

 Steven Zarbatany, President of Motorcycle Training Institute, Inc. (MTII.com), one of the event’s sponsors says “As a safety-oriented organization, we’re excited to be involved in this event!  As bikers,  safety  — as well as fun – is always on our minds, and we’re pleased to see so many people willing to participate.”

Alicia “AJ” Jones, of #1 Stunnas Motorsports Group,  the organizer of the event says she got the idea by wanting to set SOME type of non-speed record but the Guinness Book of World Records was crowded with records.  After speaking with the people at Guinness Book she contacted Dr. Mike Cosgrove of MTII and together they planned this event.  Says AJ “All motorcycles are welcome, as are 3-wheelers, 4-wheelers, cars and trucks.  This event is really open to just about any land-based vehicle with an engine.  We are hoping to gather in excess of 500 bikes and other vehicles.”

Zarbatany, who runs Florida’s largest motorcycle training school and who is an industry leader hopes that by bringing safety to the forefront, drivers will be more alert and aware of motorcycles when behind the wheel.  He is hoping that these types of events are duplicated in other areas.
