The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) is celebrating April as “AMA Get Out and Ride! Month.” While some motorcyclists live where just about every day is a day in the saddle, many riders are stuck in a deep freeze all winter. Theres no better way to rekindle Americas ongoing love affair with two- or three-wheeled wonders than a monthlong ridefest.
“April is the perfect month to kick off a celebration of the motorcycling lifestyle,” said AMA President and CEO Rob Dingman. “Its been a long, cold winter, and motorcyclists across the country are enjoying these first warm days of spring. We invite motorcyclists everywhere to join us as we usher in another great season of on- and off-road riding.”
AMA Get Out and Ride! Month kicks into gear on April 1. Throughout the month, the AMA will shine a spotlight on cool places to ride and showcase the riding activities of its members and motorcyclists across the country. A special Web page launching April 1 on AmericanMotorcyclist.com, plus a Facebook page and Twitter feed, will provide daily details about the springtime campaign, including themes for each week.

“Millions of riders spend the winter months imagining all the terrific riding they want to do, and April is the month when they get out there and begin living out those dreams,” said Dingman. “AMA Get Out and Ride!
