Just curious, and it seems there are folks here who might be able to answer this... Anyway, in the US, there's the AMA, which not only oversees the national competition side, but also handles issues regarding rider rights. Of course, there are smaller independent groups in each regions, but AMA seems to be the one main lobbying group for motorcyclists in the US. Now, after living a couple years here in Victoria, I'm still a bit confused to who really does the main lobbying for riders here. There's Motorcycling Australia (Rider's Division), and the MRA, who say they do the same thing. And then each of these orgs are further seperated by states (Motorcyling Victoria & MRA(Vic)). Any particular reason why it's not organized into one cohesive organization? Are there differences in thoughts/approaches between MA and MRA?
