I joined because the work that they do for all of our fellow riders. If it was up to some political leaders, they would love to restrict some of our rights as riders. Just check out the website to see some of the issuses they are fighting for. Stuff like getting harsher sentences and jailtime for those drivers who just love to make left hand turn in front of us.

I'm not a member, but what kind of benefits do you get for being a member. I might join just due to the fact that it goes to a good cause. How much does it cost to join.

Shamefully I was not a member either. I had intentions to join but never got around to it. Thanks for the reminder! I'm now a member!

I'm suprised at how few AMA members are on this board. We need to change that now!

39 for a year.. which I get 25 off a trackday at midohio and I think you get discounts at AMA races..

They do have a lot to say with laws, Its kinda like the NRA for guns but AMA does it for motorcycle dirt/street.

Are they going to pass laws that you can't wear helmets? It doesn't matter to me. IF you rather not wear a helmet thats up to you.

http://www.amadirectlink.com/legislt...ons/helmet.asp

Quote:
The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) has always encouraged the use of helmets, gloves, sturdy footwear, and protective garments in general, as part of a comprehensive motorcycle safety program to help reduce injuries and fatalities in the event of a motorcycle accident.

The Association will not oppose laws requiring helmets for minor motorcycle riders and passengers. It believes that many young motorcyclists and passengers may lack the maturity to make an informed decision regarding the use of motorcycle helmets.

Although the Association strongly encourages helmet use by all motorcyclists, it maintains a long-standing fundamental belief that adults should continue to have the right to voluntarily decide when to wear a helmet.

The AMA opposes provisions conditioning rider choice of helmet use on economic criteria such as, but not limited to, additional insurance coverage, which is based on the negative and incorrect view that motorcyclists are a social burden. The AMA believes accepting such requirements is contrary to the long-term interests of motorcycling.

The Association further believes that helmet use alone is insufficient to ensure a motorcyclist's safety. There is a broad range of other measures that can be implemented to improve the skill of motorcycle operators as well as reduce the frequency of situations where other vehicle operators are the cause of accidents involving motorcycles.

ya know, i support everyone's right to choose and all, but what makes helmets any different than seatbelts? seatbelts don't PREVENT accidents, they lessen the risk of severe injury, just like helmets
