American Motorcyclist Association Rider BenefitsThe American Motorcyclist Association is pleased to announce the re-launch of an expanded member benefit with EagleRider, the country’s premier motorcycle rental and touring company.
The new plan offers AMA members an exclusive 15 percent discount on rentals from the company’s well-maintained fleet of Harley-Davidsons, Hondas, BMWs, Can-Ams, Kawasakis, Suzukis, Triumphs, Vespas, Yamahas and Victory motorcycles.In addition, AMA members enjoy a similar 15 percent discount on EagleRider Tours, which feature guided and self-guided options in the best places to ride in the United States, including Route 66, the Pacific Coast Highway, the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Southwest, Florida and many, many more locations.As part of the new AMA member benefit, EagleRider will also be ready to sign up riders as AMA members at their locations, so both existing and new members can take advantage of the savings.Rob Dingman (AMA President & CEO) says: “When it comes to motorcycle rentals, nobody has the wide selection and numerous locations of EagleRider, and we’re glad to work with EagleRider to expand this money-saving benefit to our members.“In many cases, depending on the rental or tour, AMA members can save more than the cost of their AMA membership — just another example of the value of helping protect motorcyclists’ rights to ride with the American Motorcyclist Association.”EagleRider’s Vice President of Business Development Shawn Fechter said the company was excited to be broaden its partnership with the AMA.Shawn Fechter says: “AMA riders are among the most committed riders on the planet, and we’re excited to offer them an even better deal on the rental of a great motorcycle, which is only the start of the rewarding experience you’ll have on the road with EagleRider. At the same time, it’s great to work in support of the AMA, with all they do to protect the motorcycle lifestyle we all enjoy.”AMA members can access the discount: via a new page online at the AMA’s website; by calling the EagleRider reservation line directly at (888) 900-9901, or by reserving in person at an EagleRider location. Prospective members can sign up online, or in person at an EagleRider corporate location.EagleRider has corporate rental and tour outlets in nine markets. They can be also reached directly through www.EagleRider.com.

This week, in the first segment Editor Don Williams talks to us about the new Kawasaki Versys 650 LT. It’s the middleweight ADV style machine that uses the same 650 parallel twin motor as the Ninja 650, so it’s an excellent performer in a user-friendly, good looking package.
In the second segment, I chat with one of my dearest industry friends—now retired Honda PR executive, Jon Seidel. Jon’s fascinating career spans some 30 years with Big Red, and gave him some great experiences with some incredible machines. I was fortunate enough to be invited on many of the press launches that he organized. His new project is documenting and saving many of the old archives from years gone by—and incidentally, if you have anything that may be of value to the project, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll pass it all on to Jon.
So on that note, from all of us here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
