Give the Gift of AMA Membership this Holiday SeasonAMA Membership

Nothing could be more fun than holiday shopping for the motorcyclists on your gift list, and an American Motorcyclist Association membership can be the best gift of all.

“At just $49, an AMA membership is an inexpensive gift to purchase, yet it provides year-round benefits and protection for the recipient,” said Mark Christian, AMA director of marketing. “And if someone on your list is already an AMA member, you can easily add a year to their membership.”

To purchase an AMA gift membership, call (800) 262-5646 from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday (Eastern time).

The primary benefit of AMA membership is becoming part of the team that promoted the motorcycle lifestyle and fights for the rights of riders and racers.

The AMA is at the forefront in battling insurance discrimination, motorcycle-only checkpoints, government mandates for E-15 fuel, unfair restrictions on the use of public lands, laws that infringe on riding on private property and ensuring the safety of motorcyclists on the road.

And there’s an added benefit this holiday season: Those joining or renewing AMA memberships in 2014 are eligible to win a 2013 Yamaha Super Ténéré!

An AMA Champion membership costs just $49 a year, includes automatic renewal and provides the member with AMA Roadside Assistance at no additional charge. That’s in addition to all the other great member discounts and other benefits.

The financial benefits of AMA membership are substantial and include discounts from national retailers and hotel chains, car rentals and motorcycle tours and travel. For the complete list, see > Benefits of Membership.

Included with most AMA membership types is a 12-month subscription to American Motorcyclist magazine. Available in two versions – Street or Competition & Off-Road – this publication features riding stories, product reviews and profiles of motorcyclists and motorcycling activists, all while keeping members up to date on the latest actions that affect riders and riders’ rights.

AMA members also have access to hundreds of AMA-sanctioned competition and recreational events year round. AMA races include a wide range of skill-, age- and motorcycle-based classes across numerous disciplines, from motocross to woods racing to dirt-track racing and more.
