Keeping Trails Open, Protecting Your Rights


ATVsNobody does more for ATVing than the AMA. Join today!

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. 

Does your health-care plan cover you? Have you checked your medical insurance plan for exclusions? Some insurance plans won't cover injuries suffered on an ATV. The AMA is working to change that. 

Do you believe kids should be able to ride ATVs? Under a recent federal law, the sale of kids ATVs was illegal. That is, until the AMA, working with individual members, industry partners and others, fought to overturn the ban. Be part of future battles to protect our kids' right to ride and race!

Do you want to ride more trails? When you buy gas for your ATV, 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. Federal lawmakers targeted the program for extinction in 2012 but the AMA and others fought back, and won. 

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

Do you worry about ethanol in your fuel? Do you know that there is a big push by the ethanol industry to increase the amount of ethanol in gasoline? Increased ethanol could damage ATV engines. The AMA is working to block any increase in ethanol until it's shown that it's safe for ATVs. 

Do you like to save money? Gear and parts from aftermarket companies, AMA Supercross and Arenacross tickets, discounts on rental cars, hotels and more are available exclusively to AMA members. 

ATV3Do you believe ATV riding should be protected? 
The AMA works diligently to protect your right to ride.

Do you like to be entertained and informed on the latest in the world of ATVing? The bimonthly ATV News insert in the American Motorcyclist competition edition of the magazine covers many facets of ATVing, including the most in-depth stories on legislative issues that affect your right to ride and a comprehensive calendar of AMA-sanctioned events.
