Among its many roles, the AMA works to preserve the history of motorcycling, and each year holds its Hall of Fame induction ceremony, one of the most prestigious events in all of Powersports.
This year’s ceremony in September will immortalize five inductees. We are especially thrilled that one of those being honored – Grant Langston - is one of us, a Dealer (Langston Motorsports in Perris, California)! Others include Ryan Dungy, Rita Coombs, Barry Hawk and Travis Pastrana.
Many of the Dealers in the NPDA are long-time and/or Lifetime Members of the AMA, and the NPDA is proud to show our support as Presenting Sponsor of this year’s Hall of Fame induction weekend.
“The AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame celebrates the men and women of our industry who, through their significant contributions, have shaped the motorcycle world that we know and love,” said Bob Kee, Vice-Chairman of the NPDA and Owner of Destination Cycle in Kerrville, Texas. “The National Powersports Dealers Association, NPDA, was formed to represent the voice and needs of our nation’s motorcycle and Powersports dealers. As an organization, the NPDA hopes to reshape our industry into a more cohesive, growing, and prosperous body of dealers nationwide.”
Kee added: “It thus makes perfect sense for the NPDA to be a Presenting Partner for the Hall of Fame Ceremony and Hall of Fame Days this upcoming September in Pickerington, Ohio. By supporting the AMA, our organization will help honor those giants who have come before us and made our sport what it is today.”
If you are not a member of the AMA, please JOIN! In fact, some motorcycle Dealers even give their customers free membership when they buy a bike – why not you, too?
The NPDA considers the AMA vital to the success of Powersports – its outreach, advocacy and celebration of motorcycling is as important as our work as Dealers and OEMs efforts to create great machines!
