Welcome to the August 2023 newsletter from the NPDA! WE APPRECIATE every single one of the 384 (& counting!)

Taking A "Presenting" Role In Supporting OUR Industry

The National Powersports Dealer Association serves as an advocate for our members and the Powersports industry. Working to support Dealers includes promoting the Industry we serve, building bridges among OEMs, aftermarket companies and consumers. Together we work to restore steady growth in Powersports.

 

As such, the NPDA has an opportunity to support an important Powersports industry event which occurs annually at the American Motorcyclist Association

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!

 

Be sure to follow all the news from the AMA about this year’s ceremony and join us in congratulating all this year’s inductees!

Just Something To Think About ...

In less than six months, the next NFL Super Bowl Champion will have just been crowned in Las Vegas – February 11, 2024 to be exact. But that’s not the most exciting thing happening that week in Vegas, at least not to the NPDA.


That’s because to us, the 2024 Powersports’ “Super Bowl,” AIMExpo, https://aimexpousa.com/ takes place at the Las Vegas Convention Center just before the NFL extravaganza being held at Allegiant Stadium, home of the Las Vegas Raiders.


AIMExpo, February 6-8, promises to be a great event, with all the key players in our industry gathering to “Connect, Engage, Unite.”


The NPDA has our own “super” plans for the show. Not only will we once again have a show booth, but we’re working on plans to host a Member meeting, Dealer gatherings and a strategic planning session with Partners and industry leadership.


For Dealers, AIMExpo registration is free. The biggest challenge may be securing a place to stay since the show dates parallel activities occurring around Super Bowl Week, so reduce your travel stress and book your hotel now – the AIMExpo website has lodging info.


You’re going to learn more from us in the coming months about our plans for the AIMExpo, and we hope you will join us for what promised to be a great event for the Powersports industry regardless of which team wins the Big Game.
