PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- The American Motorcyclist Association is reminding families everywhere that AMA membership makes a great gift for Father's Day, which falls on June 21 this year.
"Not only is AMA membership a great value, but it makes dads part of a national team that is dedicated to protecting motorcyclists' rights and promoting the motorcycle lifestyle," said Jeff Massey, AMA chief operations officer. "The AMA tackles threats to motorcycling and riders at the local, state, national and international level, on the street, on the trails and on the track."
Among the battlefronts where the AMA is engaged:
- Stopping the rollout of E15 fuel that can damage motorcycle and ATV engines and void warranties;
- Increasing the penalties for distracted drivers who injure or kill motorcyclists;
- Ending discriminatory motorcycle-only checkpoints;
- Halting unfair restrictions to responsible motorized recreation on public lands;
- Modifying health-care plans that exclude motorcycle-related injuries; and
- Changing land-use regulations that jeopardize legitimate track operations.
At the same time, once Dad becomes an AMA member, he will have access to many great member benefits, such as AMA Roadside Assistance, discounts on parts, accessories, clothing, car rentals and accommodations. For the complete list, see www.americanmotorcyclist.com/membership/benefits.
AMA members also have exclusive access to AMA-sanctioned competition and recreational events. AMA races are the gold standard of motorcycle competition in the United States and include a wide range of skill-, age- and motorcycle-based classes across several disciplines, from motocross to woods racing to dirt-track racing and more. When it comes to riding rallies and tours, AMA-sanctioned events are unparalleled.
Most motorcycling fathers are pretty easy to please. So, if a gift is motorcycle-related, it's hard to go wrong.
