AMA LongRider Program: Start the Clock


The AMA LongRider program, presented by Shinko Tires is back and better than ever. Here’s your chance to show other riders that your motorcycle is not a toy. It is your preferred way of getting around. AMA members are invited to “start the clock” on their AMA LongRider recognition right away by registering as an AMA LongRider today.

Here’s how it works: Send us proof of your motorcycle’s mileage along with the registration form and a small fee to cover the costs of administration and materials. You will receive an AMA LongRider patch and a decal for your bike. Then, just ride. Mileage awards are available at 10,000, 25,000 and 50,000 annual miles. In addition to the awards, AMA LongRiders will be recognized on the AMA website. Don’t get a chance to ride that often? Just let your miles accumulate over time for a Lifetime Mileage award. Let us know when you’ve reached a milestone and we will send you a rocker for your patch. You can add a rocker for every milestone you achieve. More AMA LongRider gear and annual challenges are coming soon.

AMA LongRider DecalLifetime Mileage awards for 25,000, 50,000, 100,000, 250,000, 500,000, 750,000 and 1 million miles are available. Riders who log 100,000 miles or more will also receive special recognition on the AMA LongRider high-mileage recognition page. Serious riders who achieve 1 million miles will earn a special AMA LongRider plaque. (Additional patches and decals are available for order, exclusively by registered AMA LongRiders.)
