In my humble opinion every biker should join the AMA. They work hard to protect the rights of road & off road motorcyclists. There are states that have motorcycle only check points & others that are banning aftermarket pipes & still others that are closing public land to off roading.The AMA are on top of all these subjects plus plenty more. Check out how they had the "lead law" overturned last year. The more support the AMA has-the more they can protect our rights statewide & nationwide. Beware of BIG BROTHER!
