Do you ride on public land? Where would you ride if it got shut down tomorrow? At the national and local levels, the AMA is working to block efforts to close trails and shut riders out of public land. Do you want to ride on your own land? Is there a private riding area near you? Some jurisdictions try to pass laws banning riding in your own backyard, or private MX tracks. The AMA fights them.

Do you want to ride more trails? When you buy gas for your off-highway vehicle, do you know where the gas tax money goes? It goes to the federal Recreational Trails Program, which the AMA helped establish. The program provides funds to the states to develop and maintain recreational trails.

Do you want to make better trails? If you want to build trails, where would you start? A lot of riders start with the AMA Government Relations Department to get expert advice on building trails.

Do you believe motorcycling should be protected? ?The AMA maintains a full-time staff in Ohio, Washington, D.C. and California that works diligently to protect your right to ride.
