The AMA Trail Boss Workshop was developed in 2018 to offer AMA members and organizers the opportunity to identify and discuss the best practices for successfully and safely hosting an off-road ride.

The workshop—exclusive to AMA members—typically is offered in the spring and fall of each year at the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame museum in Pickerington, Ohio. At times, the AMA offers the AMA Trail Boss Workshop online or in locations that AMA staff members visit for events.

Workshops average 1.5 hours in length. They are limited to 30 participants.

Topics include planning the route, completing paperwork, accessing supplies, arranging emergency preparedness and response, considering workers and more.

This workshop is not a certification, but a forum to share best practices and ideas.
