AMA Hosts 2nd Summit on Motorcycle Sound; Group Publishes RecommendationsThe American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) has announced that the second National Summit on Motorcycle Sound was held on Saturday, May 14 in Columbus, Ohio, and that the group has published its recommendations for addressing the issue.

The recommendations, released as a document called "Sound Advice," is the product of two years of effort by the Motorcycle Sound Working Group, which was formed after the first summit conference in May of 2003. Contributors included representatives of the street and off-road motorcycling communities, as well as motorcycle manufacturers, aftermarket companies, event organizers, law enforcement, municipal government, and research institutions and regulatory agencies."We're grateful to all those who contributed to these recommendations, helping American motorcyclists address a difficult and important issue," said Robert Rasor, AMA President. "Now, for the motorcycling community and the powersports industry, the real work begins, and the AMA will continue to participate in creating solutions.""'Sound Advice' speaks with virtually every voice in American motorcycling, and it speaks to everyone who has a stake in American motorcycling's future," said Ed Moreland, AMA Vice President for Government Relations and facilitator of the Motorcycle Sound Working Group. "We encourage motorcyclists, businesses, and communities to work together to support the working group's recommendations.""Sound Advice" is available on the AMA's website,, at
