2011 a friend and an individual who was very active in the Motorcycle Community
helping so many folks personally and through her magazine was killed in a
Motorcycle crash. This individual was
Kimmy Chapman. Every week we were seeing motorcycle crashes or fatalities and
for whatever reason this one hit the motorcycle community hard. Many of us felt
that we needed to do something to help promote motorcycle safety and awareness
and hopefully through that we would help reduce crashes and fatalities. We needed an organization or Foundation that
would help the community for a long time and not just a program or theme for
out of this came Arizona Motorcycle Safety and Awareness Foundation (AMSAF)
which was created as a 501c3 nonprofit charity foundation. AMSAF felt that the
best way to help promote motorcycle safety and awareness was through education.
The next step was creating a Scholarship program that helped potential
Motorcycle riders or motorcycle riders get the education they needed through
time AMSAF has helped over 2500 individuals throughout the State get into a
Motorcycle training course. In addition, we have a Facebook page that has
weekly safety tips, a newsletter and Billboards that are constantly promoting
crashes isn’t just a motorcycle rider problem, it’s a community problem.
Motorcycle crashes are about 50 % the fault of the motorcycle rider. We all
have to be careful and looking out for the other, no matter if it’s a caged
vehicle or motorcycle.
