About the AMA

About the AMA
From the street to the track to the trail, millions of Americans enjoy motorcycling.

Some ride to work every day. Others ride for pleasure on weekends. Many ride off-road, or journey to places near and far. Still more seek the thrill of competition. The American Motorcyclist Association represents all the above riders, and many more.  

Since 1924, the American Motorcyclist Association — a 501 (c)(4) nonprofit — has worked to protect the future of motorcycling and promote the motorcycle lifestyle. AMA members come from all walks of life, and they navigate many different routes on their journey to the same destination: fun, freedom and adventure on two wheels. As one of the world’s largest motorcycling organizations, the AMA advocates for motorcyclists’ interests in the halls of local, state and federal government, the committees of international governing organizations, and the court of public opinion. 

Through member clubs, promoters and partners, the AMA sanctions more motorsports competition and motorcycle recreational eventsthan any other organization in the world. Through the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame, the AMA preserves the heritage of motorcycling for future generations. AMA members receive money-saving discounts from dozens of well-known suppliers of motorcycle services, gear and apparel, bike rental, transport, hotel stays and more. The AMA represents everything related to motorcycling in America.
