    The Motorcyclist Advisory Council Reauthorization Act, H.R. 2141, is bipartisan legislation introduced by Reps. Mike Gallagher (R-Wisc.), Jared Huffman (D-Calif.), Gwen Moore (D-Wisc.), Don Young (R-Alaska), Julia Brownley (D-Calif.), Troy Balderson (R-Ohio), and Chris Pappas (D-N.H.) will reauthorize the Motorcyclist Advisory Council (MAC) for six years and expand membership on the council to include more motorcyclist voices and transportation officials.

    H.R. 2141 takes the lessons learned from the last iteration of the MAC and will create a more effective and diverse council that will issue three rounds of recommendations over six years.

    Take action now: tell your Representative to ensure the U.S. DOT continues to hear from the motorcycling community!

House Resolution 366
For Immediate Release, May 3, 2021
    Last Friday, champions of the motorcycling community in the House of Representatives introduced a resolution addressing motorcyclist profiling. The resolution H. Res. 366 has three key points:
  • (1) promoting increased public awareness on the issue of motorcyclist profiling;
  • (2) encouraging collaboration and communication with the motorcycle community and law enforcement to engage in efforts to end motorcycle profiling; and .....
  • (3) urging State law enforcement officials to include statements condemning motorcyclist profiling in written policies and training materials.

        The MRF would like to thank lead sponsor Congressman Mike Gallagher (R-WI) and original cosponsors Congressman Troy Balderson (R-OH), Congresswoman Julia Brownley (D-CA), Congressman Jared Huffman (D-CA), Congresswoman Gwen Moore (D-WI), Congressman Chris Pappas (D-NH) and Congressman Don Young (R-AK) for their leadership on this important issue to motorcyclists.

        The Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) applauds Congressman Tim Walberg (R-MI), Congressman Michael Burgess (R-TX), Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (D-IL), and Congressman Mark Pocan (D-WI) for introducing this bipartisan resolution in the House of Representatives.

        During the 116th Congress, a record 138 Representatives cosponsored a similar resolution to the one introduced today yet it failed to reach the House floor for a vote. This came on the heels of the United States Senate unanimously passing a related resolution in 2018.

        Legislative action against the profiling of motorcyclists is not limited to Washington, D.C. Across the country, state legislatures are considering measures aimed at combating the profiling of motorcyclists. The MRF is joined by the Motorcycle Profiling Project, state motorcyclist’ rights organization, motorcycle clubs and individual riders taking a stand on this issue.

        With the U.S. Senate on record on the topic and state capitals around the nation taking action it is imperative the House of Representatives follow suit and pass H. Res 366.

        President of the MRF, Kirk ‘Hardtail’ Willard, stated “We thank Representatives Walberg, Burgess, Bustos and Pocan for their leadership on this important issue. Motorcyclists in every state are impacted by profiling. This issue isn’t going away, and it’s well past time for the House of Representatives to go on the record about the need to end motorcyclist profiling.”

        About Motorcycle Riders Foundation

      (5-7-2020)     Even with the slow down and limited miles we are making statistics that should be lower than they are. In 2020 we have 246 crashes with 10 fatalities and 61 serious injuries. In 2019 at this same time there were 291 crashes with 14 fatalities and 72 serious injuries. I feel that 2020 should be a lot less with the stay at home policy. The issue of speed is higher this year than last. What’s up with that? We should be enjoying that ride. It’s the single vehicle crashes that need to stop. Let’s stop killing and injuring ourselves.....................................( Read more....)

      (5-29-2021)     I am writing this from “Bikers inside the Beltway,” our annual trip to Washington D.C. to remind the people who are here in the U.S. capitol we are here, we vote and will fight for our rights. Washington didn’t look like we are used to seeing it. There was a security fence all the way around the U.S. Capitol Building. NOT a friendly and welcoming sight. But it is getting better. Up until just recently there were fences around the Senate Office Buildings, the House Office Buildings and there were 2 fences around the Capitol Building. I will be a whole lot happier when all the fences are down. Those buildings belong to every American and should be open and accessible as the can safely be.................( Read more....)

      (5-29-2021)   Here in Ohio, HB 550 is rearing its head again, with plans by it's sponsor, Rep. Hoops to re-introduce the bill in June. This bill would modify motorcycling training programs in Ohio and is being opposed by Abate, the MRF and the AMA. New bill language has been released, and once we have examined it, and the bill is re-introduced, we will formulate our strategies to fight against it's passage. Also, were are looking at distracted driving bills to see if we can help pass some meaningful distracted driving legislation in Ohio.................. ( Read more )
