"Memorial Day provides all Americans, including the nation's motorcycling community, with an opportunity to honor the men and women who have died in service to their nation," said AMA President and CEO Rob Dingman.

Millions of Americans will use the nation's roadways during the long holiday weekend to travel to events, family picnics, beaches and other attractions.

The AMA urges motorists to be alert to the many motorcyclists who will be on the road to participate in AMA-sanctioned events, memorial parades and freedom rides, or simply visiting family and friends during the busy travel weekend.

"Motorists and motorcyclists should exercise caution, remain aware of surround traffic and be prepared to react in emergency situations," Dingman said. "Avoid driving while impaired. Help everyone traveling on the nation's roadways reach their destinations safely and enjoy a happy weekend with friends and family."
