As we move into the second half of the 116th Congress, we still have more work to do to advance our 2020 legislative priorities.  With your help, we can make sure that Congress takes steps to help end the unfair profiling of motorcyclists around the country. The Motorcycle Riders Foundation is working with the State Motorcycle Rights Organizations (SMRO), the National Council of Clubs (NCOC), the Motorcycle Profiling Project (MPP) and the National Coalition of Motorcyclists (NCOM) on the passage of H.Res. 255.

Let's keep the momentum going and ask the U.S. House of Representatives to join their colleagues in the U.S. Senate to pass H.Res. 255. If you have answered our previous calls to action over the past year on motorcyclist profiling, please make sure you click the take action button for our updated profiling engagement!  We currently have over 125 bipartisan cosponsors and we would like to increase that number to signal to Congress that this issue is still important to the bikers in America.  If your representative is already a cosponsor, the system will send them a thank you on your behalf which also encourages them to ask their colleagues in the House of Representatives to join them. 

TAKE ACTION NOW: Tell Congress that targeting a motorcyclist because of their clothes, cut or motorcycle is discriminatory and needs public attention. Support H.Res. 255.

 (11-22-19)     This article is the only article I will be writing from now on. My position of Chairman of The Board oversees the Board of Directors and fills in for any open offices. I will write about issues involving those offices in this article. This will make life so much easier.
    This is the end of the 2019 riding season and I hope everyone had a great year. The start of the year was a little wet and some of our events had to be cancelled. As we all know, the weather is what makes or breaks these events. Every event has made a little money and that is what keeps this grass roots organization moving on and representing every motorcyclist in Ohio..................................( Read more....)

 ' (8-26-19)     Nationwide only 3 percent of Americans belong to a freedom fighting organization (explains the 3% and III% logos people wear). I recently ran into someone wearing a III% logo and asked him if new itís history. He gave me a story about a group who are tired of the government and rambled on for about 15 minutes and never did say where it came from. I let him know. This reminded me of how important a job we do here in ABATE. Only 1 out of 33 1/3 people (itís tough if youíre the 1/3 person) are willing to stand up and defend the rights and freedoms of all motorcyclists. .............( Read more....)

From the Legislative Page
Kolman Fuzy
  (11-22-19)     Both Congress and State Legislatures are back in session, and that means an increase in activity in dealing with all the issues we are facing. On the Federal side, H.R. 255, the profiling legislation has now over 90 co-sponsors, due to the hard work by Tiffany and Rocky of the MRF and all the SMROs involved in trying to get this resolution passed in the House. Keep pressuring your Congressmen to sign on as co-sponsors and to support this resolution. Also, E-15 continues to be out there. H.R. 2540, the Food and Fuel Consumer Protection Act of 2019 has been introduced by Reps. Bill Flores (R-TX) and Peter Welch (D-VT). This would cap the volume of ethanol blended into the nation's fuel supply at 9.7% of the total volume of gasoline. The AMA and other SMROs support this legislation as a way to limit the amount of E-15 forced into the marketplace and to insure the availability of E-10 and E-0 for motorcyclists and other small engine users. Please contact your Representatives to support this resolution as well.............. ( Read more )

  (10-26-19)     With more than half the year gone, the older you get the faster time goes by, we seem to be riding better than we did last year. Last year at this time we had 81 fatalities and to date this year we have 66. Also there were 7 passenger fatalities, 10 out of state licenses and 5 three wheel motorcycle fatalities. What I desperately wish we could change but I have not found a way, 36 of our fatalities were our own fault. We are better riders than that, are we not?........ ( Read more )
