100 years of anything is a huge milestone, but it’s undoubtedly made even better if it centers around one of the things we love the most: motorcycles. In 2024, the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) commemorates its centennial, celebrating 100 years of promoting and protecting the spirit of motorcycling all across the US.

In AMA’s official press release, President and CEO Rob Dingman expressed his excitement towards the organization’s century of existence stating, “Reaching 100 years is a testament to the enduring spirit of motorcycling and the passionate community that has supported the AMA throughout its history. We invite the entire motorcycling community to join us in celebrating this incredible journey as we look forward to shaping the future of motorcycling over the next 100 years.”

Indeed, with the needs and preferences in the motorcycling world rapidly changing these days, the AMA has its work cut out for it now more than ever. AMA has always been rooted in passion, advocacy, and making the freedom of the open road accessible to a wider audience, and the organization is looking forward to the next 100 years in protecting and promoting the motorcycling community in the US. That being said, it’s time to celebrate the AMA’s centennial, and it sure has quite a lot of events and activities lined up specifically for this purpose.
