AMA AWARDS THAT YOU’VE NEVER HEARD OF & GREG WHITE’S NEW HONOR


ÿÿÿÿWhen the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) announced that Greg White, host of Speed’s “2 Wheel Tuesday” program, was going to receive the 2006 AMA Award for Media & Reporting it got us thinking–how many AMA Awards are there?

ÿÿÿÿIt turns out that White’s award was the first of the new “AMA Awards,” which will recognize significant contributions to American motorcycling. The AMA Awards will be bestowed by the AMA Board of Directors and the AMA said that the recipient of the 2006 AMA Award for Public Service will be announced in the coming weeks.

ÿÿÿÿHere is a complete list of the AMA Awards listed on the AMA web site at www.amadirectlink.com (it is not up-to-date).
