Street Events And Series
It’s a big country out there, and there’s no better way to see it than from the seat of a motorcycle.
For the best rallies, rides and tours to take in this year, look no further than the events in the AMA Premier Touring Series. These are the gatherings that stand out, whether you’re looking to experience the country’s most iconic large rallies or just hang out with local riders in smaller events.
Here’s a look at some of the cool events the AMA has to offer. More activities are always being added, and you can always find a complete and up-to-date list of all AMA-sanctioned events in our online events database. You’ll also find great rides in the “Go Ride” section of your monthly American Motorcyclist magazine.
Smaller and often more rewarding than some larger gatherings,
district rallies and tours are great places to meet other riders from
your area. Find these by searching our online database of rides and rallies. And during the colder months, the AMA encourages its members to visit the International Motorcycle Show in their area.
Those who like a little more dirt with their pavement can check out events in the AMA's dual-sport and adventure ride series.
