History of the club's Instagram activity

From a simple page set up by motorcycle legend, Roland Sands back in 2015 for newly hired Executive Director, Keith Kizer; this has turned out to be the number one social media platform for the club. Kizer remembers, "I was on a West Coast swing and stopped in to see longtime friend, Roland Sands, at his shop and had one his guys pose for a AMCA racing jersey to use on our new website. Roland asked if we were on Instagram in which I replied, Instawhat? Roland took my phone out of my hand and in minutes had an account set up for us with photos from his shop. He said make sure you post new photos everyday and before long it will balloon into thousands."

Kizer admits he did a terrible job at following Roland's advice until he eventually handed over the job to Marc Gallin who took it to another level, reaching a massive audience.
