No Comments

AMA Go Ride! Month, sponsored by the American Motorcyclist Association, rounds out its month-long motorcycling celebration with AMA Go Ride Safely! Week. Motorcyclists nationwide are encouraged to take rider training and use appropriate riding gear while motorists are urged to watch for motorcycles as millions of riders take to the roads.

“The AMA strongly encourages its members and all motorcyclists to learn everything they can to manage riding risks so that every outing is safe and enjoyable,” said AMA President and CEO Rob Dingman. “When it comes to riding responsibly, that means taking training and wearing protective gear.”

Each week of AMA Go Ride! Month, “Freedom Friday” urges riders join the cause to fight for America’s motorcycling rights. Distracted driving is the focus during AMA Go Ride Safely! Week because inattentive driving poses a serious and increasing threat to motorcyclists everywhere.

“We urge America’s motorists to avoid distracted driving behaviors, such as talking on cell phones and texting, and to watch for motorcycles as we take to the roads in the spring season,” said Dingman. “It’s never too early to emphasize safety as we approach Motorcycle Awareness Month in May.”
