The AZRATPack Renews AMA Charter

Parts Unkown, AZ

by El Presidente

We are happy to announce that we have renewed our charter with the AMA for 2021.  We have had a great relationship with them as a club since 2016.  Our relationship with the AMA has been beneficial to us because they offer great rates for liability insurance for our events along with promoting our club nationwide.

Since chartering with the AMA, we were nominated in 2018 for their Recreational Road Riding Organizer of the Year and won the award in 2019!  Very high praise for such a young club such as ours!  

We also encourage all of our members to join the AMA!  Here are some of the benefits to being a member:

Your Freedom to Ride Protected: By joining the AMA, you are taking an active role in fighting against anti-motorcycling forces that threaten our freedom to ride. Check out the AMA Action Center online where you can find legislative report portals at all levels of government to review, make an informed decision and then take action all in one place. Read our position statements, subscribe to action alerts, review our legislative scorecard and then join in the discussion on our social media sites.

Roadside Assistance: AMA members can access a range of roadside assistance benefits. Whether you need coverage for just your bikes, cars and trucks, or even RVs, there is an option for you. Services include towing, lock-out, dead battery, flat tire and fluid delivery. (Please note that additional services and coverage may require an additional fee.)

American Motorcyclist Magazine: AMA members receive a monthly printed magazine, American Motorcyclist. Beginning with the November 2020 issue, the AMA communicates with members through a single version of the magazine, as it has done for much of its history, rather than the previous separate “Street and Recreation” and “Competition and Off-Road” editions. In addition to the printed magazine, a digital version of each issue, including recent back issues, remains available online in the “Members Only” magazine archive section of

The Best in Racing: AMA-sanctioned amateur events are the only guaranteed path from local racing to the professional ranks.
