We’re confident that everyone who takes advantage of this program and visits the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame will agree."Founded in 1990, the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to motorcycling, including those known for their contributions to road riding, off-road riding and all categories of racing, as well as those who have excelled in government relations, business, history, design and engineering.
