The American Motorcyclist Association has been congratulated and commended on its 90th anniversary by a bi-partisan bill before the U.S. House of Representatives, which recognizes the organization as being the nation’s premier advocate for motorcyclists and the motorcycle lifestyle.
Introduced by U.S. Reps. Steve Stivers (R-Ohio), Pat Tiberi (R-Ohio), and Timothy Walz (D-Minn.)—and cosponsored by Reps. Collin Peterson (D-Minn.), Tim Walberg (R-Mich.), Tim Griffin (R-Ark.), Andy Harris (R-Md.) and Reid Ribble (R-Wis.)—H.R. 650 calls the AMA’s membership “the world’s largest and most dedicated group of motorcycle enthusiasts.”
“We are honored that the House of Representatives recognizes the important role the AMA plays in defending the rights of motorcyclists on the road, on the trails and on the tracks,” said Wayne Allard, AMA vice president for government relations. “Our organization has been—and remains—at the forefront of political and legislative efforts to ensure that motorcyclists’ freedoms are protected and expanded.”
Founded in 1924, the AMA is the premier advocate for the motorcycling community, representing the interests of millions of American on- and off-highway motorcyclists and all-terrain-vehicle riders. The AMA’s mission is to promote the motorcycle lifestyle and protect the future of motorcycling. Through member clubs, promoters, and partners, the AMA also sanctions about 2,600 events annually, including 1,845 competition events. For more information, visit americanmotorcyclist.com.
