ABOUT THE AMA
The Australian Motorcyclist Association (AMA) is a young organisation and isn't endorsed by the FIM and we’re okay with that, so are our partners. But that doesn’t mean we compromise on the quality, knowledge and safety standards of any of our officials, staff or participants. In fact, our event officers have nationaly recognised qualifications in workplace training and assessment, workplace health and safety and motorcycle riding instruction, which meets and exceeds any of the requirements of the Australian Sports Commission for officials.
The AMA is different from other Australian motorcycle organisations, which have a focus just on motorcycle sport or just on motorcycle recreation. The purpose of the AMA is to provide education opportunites through sport and recreation activities.
The AMA does not intend to promote itself as a peak body, nor does it intend to govern or regulate sport or recreation in anyway. The Vision of the AMA is to enhance road safety for Australian motorcyclists through off road riding experience.
The Mission of the AMA, in partnership with government, community, business and families, is to reduce the risk of injury or death of Australian motorcyclists by providing opportunities for essential skills and knowledge to be learnt ‘off road’, to be better at riding 'on road.'
ABOUT AMA ADV RIDER
AMA ADV Rider is the recreational adventure riding division of the Australian Motoryclist Associaiton (AMA). Whether you're a seasoned adventure rider or you're new to going bush, associating with us will help you to get more from your adventure bike.
Adventure riding is a great way to get out with like minded people and enjoy the magnificant landscape that is Australia. Adventure rides are classed as touring trips, meaning you ride your bike to a start location and finish at another. Road registration is required and pillions are welcome.
AMA adventure rides are organised for members, their guests and enthusiasts to enjoy their interests more often, whilst helping to improve their ‘on road’ driving and riding skills and knowledge. All AMA adventure rides have an emphasis on fun and camaraderie, not competition and rivalry.
GUIDELINES & BEST PRACTICE
The AMA guidelines and best practice for adventure rides are updated each year and issued with memberships. Amendments and alterations to these guides are often made at Committee meetings throughout the year.
These amendments and any other relevant bulletins are available to view via this section of the website. The AMA General Recreation Guidelines and Touring Trip Guideliens, updates and bulletins are also available here.
