The AMA And The MRF Talk Noise

At the National Summit on Motorcycle Sound, held in Worthington, Ohio, the AMA and the MRF joined others from the motorcycling community in candid and open discussions on issues related to motor-vehicle noise.

Pickerington, OH – The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) and the Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) share a common goal of protecting the best interests of American motorcyclists and have a long history of working together toward that goal.

At the National Summit on Motorcycle Sound, held in Worthington, Ohio, the AMA and the MRF joined others from the motorcycling community — including representatives from rider groups, motorcycle manufacturers, aftermarket companies, event organizers, law enforcement, municipal government, research institutions and regulatory agencies — in candid and open discussions on issues related to motor-vehicle noise.

The AMA and the MRF, along with others present at the conference, agreed that excessive motorcycle noise is a serious issue in some communities, that it may become an issue in many more, and that the potential exists for it to affect motorcyclists’ rights nationwide.

Based on discussions at that conference, the AMA and the MRF have agreed to work together, with the support of other organizations and individuals within the motorcycling community, to seek solutions to this problem in the best interests of American motorcyclists.The AMA and the MRF ask for the support of their members, and of all motorcyclists, in this effort.

The American Motorcyclist Association, founded in 1924, is a non-profit organization with more than 260,000 members. The Association’s purpose is to pursue, protect and promote the interests of motorcyclists, while serving the needs of its members.

The Motorcycle Riders Foundation, the first motorcyclists’ rights organization to establish a full-time legislative advocacy in Washington D.C., is the only organization in Washington devoted exclusively to the street rider. The MRF established MRFPAC in the early 1990s to advocate the election of candidates who would champion the cause of rider safety and rider freedom. The MRF proudly claims state motorcyclists’ rights organizations and the very founders of the American rider rights movement among its leading members.
