AMA Honors Those Who Gave Their Lives for Our Country This Memorial Day

AMA Says "Safe Riding this Memorial Day Weekend"

The AMA encourages safe riding this Memorial Day weekend as we honor those who lost their lives serving our country in the Armed Forces.

Safe driving urged for holiday weekend

The American Motorcyclist Association joins all Americans this Memorial Day, May 29, in expressing deep gratitude to the friends and families of those who gave their lives in service to the United States and in honoring their memories.

“The freedoms we enjoy, as motorcyclists and as Americans, come at great personal cost and sacrifice and are defended daily by military personnel dedicated to protecting our principles,” said AMA President and CEO Rob Dingman. “It is important to pause and reflect on Memorial Day, remembering those who helped make possible the freedoms we too often take for granted, including the freedom to ride and travel throughout this great nation.”

Many Americans will take advantage of the long holiday weekend to enjoy the freedom of the road, traveling to events, to family picnics, to beaches and other attractions.

“We especially encourage motorists to be alert this weekend to motorcyclists, many of whom will be on the road to participate in AMA-sanctioned events, Memorial Day parades and freedom rides,” Dingman said. “And we urge motorcyclists to ride safely and stay alert and sober.”
