PHOENIX JOINS GET ON CAMPAIGN
May 14 2010.


Phoenix Distribution, the official UK importer of premium motorcycle brands Arai, Abus, Yoshimura, Kappa, Pinlock, Fine Vision, Max Vision, VentureShield and Shift It are pleased to announce their support of the Get On campaign.

The Get On initiative from the Motorcycle Industry Association (MCIA), tagged 'life's better on two wheels' is designed to grow the market for all powered two wheel vehicles, and all related products and services. It also aims to increase the amount of motorcycle miles travelled, improve safety and embed a culture of motorcycle usage into the mainstream UK transport infrastructure.

The Get On campaign is web based and harnesses the reach of social media through the site and using other mainstream sites such as Facebook and Twitter, encouraging new entrants to share their two-wheeled experiences and inspire others. It also provides easy access to free motorcycle rides, advice on how to start and getting a license, a bike and accessories buying guide, and a 'Travel Savings Calculator' highlighting the transport costs that can be saved by switching to two wheels.

John Wakefield, Phoenix's Managing Director, is happy to get behind the Get On campaign; "As far as we're concerned anything that engages more people with all the positives of two wheels - efficiency, ecology, cost saving and let's not forget, fun - is a good thing, and Get On seems to do just that. It's great for motorcycling, and for our industry and business."

Miles Taylor, Get On Campaign Director, "Phoenix coming on board is great news for Get On. Not only does it ensure that visitors to our website have an even more comprehensive directory of accessories available to them, it also sends a clear and positive message that every month more companies are recognising the benefit and importance of playing an active part in this industry campaign."
