Protect your right to ride and race
Opponents of motorcycling are hard at work trying to take away our freedoms. They want to stop you from riding down streets, on public land or even in your own back yard.
Insurance companies want to jack up your rates and blacklist certain bike styles right off the road. Some officials talk about shutting down race tracks.
The fact is, motorcyclists face dis-crimination and the threats of discriminatory laws every day. Motorcycle-only check-points, for example, are happening now.
These attacks on our freedoms must stop.
As the nation’s longest-standing and most respected organization protecting your right to ride and race, the AMA is the strongest advocate for the motorcycling freedoms you deserve.
But we need political clout to fight for motorcyclists’ rights, and we gain that political clout by having members.
A lot of members.
The more members we have, the more powerful we are. That’s because our only defense against the many threats to motorcycling is the strength we derive by banding together. Politicians understand strength in numbers.
We proved that recently with a landmark victory, when the AMA and our members played an important role in passing federal legislation that lifted the misguided nationwide ban on the sale of kids’ off-highway vehicles. It almost didn’t happen.
Without the involvement of everyone in the riding community—from motorcycle and ATV industry officials to very young riders—this victory couldn’t have happened.
Our fight for motorcyclists’ right to ride and race continues every day.
For example, right now the AMA is urging federal transportation officials to end the grant program that gives states money for motorcycle-only checkpoints. These checkpoints single out riders and are discriminatory.
We need you to help us fight for the rights of every motorcyclist in your club, or every racer on your track. We need you to encourage others to join the AMA so that our strong voices are heard from the local village council to state governments to Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., demanding our motorcycling freedoms not be taken away.
In addition to representation in local, state and federal government, the AMA offers something for everyone from individual riders to clubs to families. More members means more clout so we can fight important battles for all of us who love riding and racing, and for future generations.
