From an AMA press release:
The American Motorcyclist Association will greet current and future members at 2016’s most iconic motorcycling events, including Daytona Bike Week, Americade, Laconia, AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days and Sturgis.
AMA Club 1924, named in honor of the AMA’s founding year, is the association’s presence at these events, celebrating the fun of motorcycling, connecting with riders and looking back on the history of motorcycling in America.
“The AMA includes people who just love to ride motorcycles, and that love of riding and community is why the AMA was created,” said AMA Chief Operations Officer Jeff Massey. “Our AMA Club 1924 locations are the latest opportunity for the AMA to connect to its members and future members and to showcase the great heritage of motorcycling in America.”
Throughout 2016, the AMA will be collaborating with partners to enhance members’ experience at AMA Club 1924 locations.
RoadRUNNER magazine, which offers AMA members an exclusive subscription discount on its touring magazine, has created motorcycle travel maps for the rallies on the AMA Club 1924 calendar.
The maps, created by RoadRUNNER’s RoadMAPS subsidiary, feature the best roads in the rallies’ state. The maps are large, water-resistant and tear-proof. They include six self-guided routes, each with information on local history, nearby points of interest and lunch stop suggestions.
The AMA will distribute the maps for free to visitors of AMA Club 1924 at each rally. The maps also will be for sale in the RoadMAPS online shop following each event.
