The AMA is undergoing some pretty big changes. I like what I'm seeing; the organization had become (according to it's current leadership) mostly a Mid-Western bike club, with a big presence in racing. They are changing their focus to motorcyclist rights and advocacy, which I think is their most valuable role. The magazine has gotten a lot better the past couple of years as well.

Yeah Dingman really cracked the whip, and made big changes. There's an estimated 6 million riders, and only 300K AMA members. It's got to change.

The whole helmet law fight cost them a lot of credit, I hope they don't f*ck the duck on the loud pipe issue as well.

I have read in one blog "a nation without helmet" .Now a days helmets are mandatory but we can see few culprits on roads.Can AMA highlight the importance of it in order to make people aware of it.

It's about education and choice, it's your head. As far as loud pipes go they're not your ears. My neighbor wanted to extend his bike track onto my land where I ride. under nomal circumstances it probably would not have been a problem. But every Sunday morning his unbaffled pipes are shaking my coffee across the table. I don't complain,but What do you think I told him about his extended track? What if I was a nonrider? I'd probably be crying like a starving baby! Calling the cops trying to make dirt riding illegal. You have to consider the people around you. Ignorance is not always bliss. The AMA is right! I do wish they handled racing better though.

Yes, well the AMA seems lately like some Nigerian ex-offical who wants to send you big $$$ if you buy a raffle ticket for D!ck Mann's ex-BSA 500. I get hooked every time...

And where's my trophy for my 3rd place finish at Perris in 1987? Never got it. Don't say GBR was at fault either, 'cause it was an AMA sancioned race. You crazies.
