Fuel the Fund
Join the AMA in raising funds for a motorcycle crash study
Would you give up the cost of one tank of gas for your bike to help make motorcycling safer for all of us?
The AMA is asking you to do just that. And the Association is doing its part, too — $100,000 worth.
But the AMA would also like individual motorcyclists like you to get involved. Donate online or send your donation by mail to Fuel the Fund, c/o AMA, 13515 Yarmouth Drive, Pickerington, OH 43147.
