PICKERINGTON, OHIO -- The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) reports that a national summit conference on the issue of motorcycle sound was conducted May 16-18 in Ohio. Forty representatives of the street and off-road motorcycling communities, as well as motorcycle manufacturers, aftermarket companies, event organizers, law enforcement, municipal government, research institutions and regulatory agencies were invited to participate in this face-to-face discussion, hosted by the AMA.
Those present considered various aspects of the issue in a series of seminars and open discussions. They agreed to continue those discussions in the coming months.
“We’re pleased that this important dialogue has begun, and we believe that it’s a promising beginning," said Robert Rasor, AMA President. "We’re grateful to all those who shared their perspectives, helping American motorcyclists to address this issue in positive and constructive ways.”
