    Anyone else get an e-mail from the AMA about this Snow Bike series?
    Why would the AMA be behind this? How does this quality as a motorcycle? I would have assumed the sanctioning body would be the snowmobile group over motorcycle.

    No, I am not banging on the AMA (yet) just wondering how they justify this?

    Now my AMA money is being used for this?

    As an avid Snowbiker, I for one feel good to know that the AMA is fighting to keep my rights intact!

    You have one? Cool.
    But how does it qualify as a motorcycle?

    Too much negativity in the narrative.

    Didn't the Ohio rider Jimmy Jarrett win the National Snow bike series last year?

    Don't often get enough snow around here for tracks and all that. Maybe make some snow angels again this winter. The bike is ready...

    The AMA were probably early adopters for the potential untapped money. My gut feel is that it's a motorcycle with tracks but I suppose if you get technical...

    Haha yeah thanks I was being a bit sarcastic. For anyone that's interested they have rentals up near houghton Michigan. It's a helluva drive up into the upper peninsula though.

    From what I've read they're almost a bust unless you live in an area with a large amount of powder.
