LongRider Program

Show the world how serious you are about riding your motorcycle!

The AMA LongRider program was created specifically to recognize AMA members who are committed to putting on the miles, awarding patches to signify your riding accomplishments.

Annual mileage awards are available at 10,000, 25,000 and 50,000 miles, and you also have the option to let your miles accumulate for Lifetime Mileage awards at 100,000, 250,000, 500,000, 750,000 and 1 million miles.

Riders who achieve 1 million miles will also earn a special AMA LongRider plaque. In addition to the awards, AMA LongRiders will also be recognized on the AMA website.

Long Rider Rules

  • Must be a current AMA member.
  • Must agree to abide by AMA verification rules and procedures.
  • Must register for the program (miles begin to accumulate upon registration)
  • AMA LongRiders receive a decal and patch with registration.

How it Works

  • Riders register using the AMA LongRider Application.
  • Mileage accumulates from the registration date forward unless you can provide verification of previous mileage (with documentation) from an AMA-chartered club. The AMA will consider verified mileage awards from non-AMA groups/clubs/dealers on a case-by-case basis. Mileage will not be credited for years that you were not an AMA member.
  • If you were enrolled in the AMA LongRider program in 2008 or prior, previously verified LongRider Emeritus mileage can be counted toward your total as well.
  • Send a current photo showing both your odometer and your AMA card in the same photo, or other verification as outlined on the program application form. Odometer pics and other verification will be kept on-file by the AMA.
  • If multiple motorcycles are used, mileage will count from time each motorcycle is registered with the LongRider program.

Tracking Mileage

The AMA recommends that you keep records of the mileage you are submitting so you know when to apply for recognition of individual awards. Once you reach a milestone, return the AMA LongRider Mileage Award Request Form to AMA LongRider, 13515 Yarmouth Dr., Pickerington, OH 43147, including an updated odometer photo with your AMA card in the photo or other verification as listed on the mileage award form. Only verifiable mileage counts toward AMA LongRider Awards (odometer miles, not trail miles). This is designed to be a road/adventure riding program.
