World of Soul® Motorcyclist Association
July 15, 2014
To the Motorcycle Riding Community in the State of Oklahoma
(CHICAGO, IL) World of Soul® Motorcyclist Association (WOSMA) is a growing national motorcyclist association stemming from the African-American riding experience but open to all riders regardless of nationality. We originated as a byproduct of World of Soul Motorcycle Community®, established in 2007. Our focus is driven by local teams of Riders United to Serve Humanity®.
WOSMA is not a club. It exists primarily to connect the motorcycle community to commercial interest to negotiate discounts, establish national road assistance and provide an accidental death and dismemberment supplement. Building the association provides a sustainable platform to combine our resources through membership to make good things happen in the community in a manner unprecedented.
Under the direction of World of Soul Motorcycle Community® brand message, together, we are accomplishing great things to positively impact the riding community and the lives of people in the communities in which we live.
Remember, the main objective of this national association is to add value to your unique riding experience through products, programs, services and events. Examine our track record and see for yourself the value presented and then respond accordingly.
We’ve negotiated cash savings in partnership with participating dealerships, made available relationships with insurance companies , advocated access to more motorcycle safety and training, civic education campaigns, college fairs, college tours and a national awareness campaign called, “Ride for CHANGE Ride for HOPE®” that tells a story about America’s history that says despite our challenges we have always found ways to move the nation forward.
To build upon this foundation, we are looking for 1) new members to help grow the association and receive the benefits and 2) individuals to organize to reflect the diversity in motorcycling with a local leadership team to relay the opportunities coming forward.
With the legacy of Black Wall Street among you, the riding community of Oklahoma is in a prime position to send a message to the nation about what is possible within the African-American community by supporting the building of this national association now.
We pray for your decision in support of CHANGE and HOPE for an improved riding experience through World of Soul® Motorcyclist Association.
Please, kindly share this letter and the information attached with the local riding community.
