Motorcyclists! Join the Fight

Join the AMA

Motorcyclists face mounting opposition from all levels of government, special-interest groups and an uninformed public fueled by media misinformation. They want to control what we ride, how we ride and where we ride.

Founded in 1924, the AMA is a grassroots motorcycle organization with 220,000 riders whose mission is to protect all motorcyclists’ right to ride and race. Join us to:

Stop Distracted Drivers: Distracted drivers are a motorcyclist’s worst nightmare. The AMA has been at the forefront to stop this deadly threat from the beginning.

Stop E15 Ethanol: The EPA is forcing untested E15 fuel (15% ethanol) on the market that could damage your bike and void your motorcycle's warranty.

Stop Motorcycle-only Checkpoints: The National Highway Safety Administration has developed a grant program to support discriminatory motorcycle-only checkpoints.

The AMA and its members need your help in fighting these and many other anti-motorcycle laws.

Join us in the fight!
