In the late 1980s more than 4 million motorcycles were registered in the United States. Their uses ranged from traffic control, to special off-road races, to daily commuting. The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA), which had more than 187,000 members in 1991, is the national governing body that oversees motorcycle racing in the United States.
