Senate Profiling Resolution Passes Unanimously

    The Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) is proud to announce that the Motorcycle Profiling Resolution (S. Res. 154) passed the U.S. Senate with unanimous consent on Tuesday evening, December 11, 2018. Over the past few weeks, the MRF had many productive meetings on Capitol Hill to further our objective of promoting awareness of unfair profiling of motorcyclists across the country. Our resolution’s co-sponsor, Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI), has played an integral role in ensuring that the issues of motorcyclists in this country were addressed in the U.S. Senate.

    MRF President Kirk “Hardtail” Willard said upon learning of the adoption of the resolution, “Passage of Senate Resolution 154 has been the Motorcycle Riders Foundation’s number one legislative initiative in this current Congress. This act today by the Senate is very important, as it recognizes that the profiling of motorcyclists because of our mode of transportation or choice of attire is unacceptable. The personal relationships, the tens of thousands of contacts, the visits, and the highlighting of this issue as a top priority during the MRF’s Bikers Inside the Beltway speaks highly of our passion on this issue and demonstrates our ability as grassroots lobbyists to be effective on Capitol Hill.” Willard went on to say, “It is important to note that this cause united the Motorcycle Riders Foundation, our state motorcyclists’ rights organizations (SMROs), the National Council of Clubs (NCOC), the National Coalition of Motorcyclists (NCOM) and the Motorcycle Profiling Project (MPP), all of which brought even greater attention to this critical issue. The Motorcycle Riders Foundation would like to thank our 2018 MRF Legislative Champion, Senator Ron Johnson, and his staff for the significant efforts they put into passing S. Res. 154.”

    As you know, the MRF, along with the SMROs, the motorcycle club community, and with individual riders across this country have been advocating for a national solution to address motorcycle profiling. With the help of our champions on Capitol Hill, we have been able to advance our bipartisan and bicameral resolutions concerning the profiling of motorcyclists.

    Russell Radke, MRF Sustaining Member Motorcycle Club Representative, said, “We are now one step closer to ending the attacks on our civil liberties from unconstitutional motorcyclist profiling.” The MRF is encouraged that we have begun to address the concerns of the motorcycling community, but we still have more work to do on this issue. We encourage the U.S. House of Representatives to join its colleagues in the U.S. Senate and pass H. Res 318.

About Motorcycle Riders Foundation

 ' (11-11-18)     We take on lobbies that are well funded and have huge PAC funds. We dig in and work at a grass roots level and win to protect our rights as well as the rights of all motorcyclists in Ohio (even the ones that don’t belong to ABATE.)
Where others would only complain about something being unfair (maybe make a meme for Facebook if they were really ticked), we figure out a way to make a change or prevent changes if it takes away our rights....................( Read more....)

  (11-11-18)     HB 248, the hearing protection bill passed the House and has been sent to the Senate. HB 115, the Road Guarding Bill continues to languish, however I am continuing to work to see if we can make it more palatable to the opposition. Profiling discussions are continuing. If anyone has any issues that you feel Abate should be addressing, please bring them to my attention...................... ( Read more )
From the Safety & Ed Page
Mike Stock
  (11-11-18)     Motorcyclist’s biggest threat at this time is Distracted Drivers. We go down the road every day and see it first hand. That it must come to a stop is why I am part of a Distracted Driving Task Force. Putting all the different distracted driving problems out on the table is how we can find ways to eliminate each kind. The first defense would be through Education and Awareness and then we need to create new Laws and penalties....................... ( Read more )
