Wilsons Receive Dud Perkins Award

The AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame reports that Mike  Margaret Wilson, AMA Life Members and members of the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame, have been named recipients of the 2014 AMA Dud Perkins Lifetime Achievement Award for their many decades of service. 

11The Wilsons have been active in motorcycle circles on many levels and for many decades. Their positive attitudes and generous giving of time and treasure have made them standouts in our sport. No on deserves this honor more. They also commissioned the beautiful bronze sculpture, “Glory Days,” which graces the Hall of Fame’s display area and serves as its official logo. 

Margaret, a longtime member of the Motor Maids, has ridden her motorcycles over 550,000 miles and is an enthusiastic supporter and promoter of women’s motorcycling clubs and events. She was awarded the AMA Bessie Stringfield Award in 2003.

“This is wonderful news!” says Mike. “Dud Perkins was a good friend of ours. He did a lot for motorcycling, he treated us as equals and to be remembered in his name like this is fantastic.”

Adds Margaret: “Mike and I have been lucky to have each other all these years, we’ve done so many things with the AMA and made so many friends, and we are just thankful to be remembered like this. 

We say: “Sincere congratulations!
