For Immediate Release

House of Representatives Introduced a Resolution Addressing Motorcyclist Profiling

    Today champions of the motorcyclist community in the House of Representatives introduced a resolution addressing motorcyclist profiling. The resolution (H. Res. 255) 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 Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) applauds Congressman Walberg (R-MI), Congressman Peterson (D-MN), Congressman Burgess (R-TX) and Congressman Pocan (D-WI) for introducing this bipartisan resolution in the House of Representatives. These four Members of Congress introduced an identical bill in the last Congress which garnered 37 cosponsors but unfortunately failed to reach the House floor for a vote.

   While the previous effort in the House failed, the United States Senate, in December 2018 passed an identical resolution regarding motorcyclist profiling. The MRF was proud to take a leading role in passing this Senate anti-profiling resolution. The United States Senate is now on record calling for the end of motorcyclist profiling.

    The MRF is committed to working with the state motorcycle rights organizations (SMROs), coalitions, COC’s, the Motorcycle Profiling Project (MPP), the National Council of Clubs (NCOC), the National Coalition of Motorcyclists (NCOM), and independent riders to advance H. Res. 255.

    President of the MRF, Kirk ‘Hardtail’ Willard, stated “We once again thank Congressmen Walberg, Peterson, Burgess and Pocan for their leadership on this important issue. Motorcyclists in every state are impacted by profiling and we appreciate these Congressmen bringing the issue before the House of Representatives.”

To ask your U.S. House of Representative to cosponsor H. Res. 255, please take action at the link below:

 (3-2-19)     Here we are in the month of March. Some years we say this is the beginning of riding season and then other years it’s not time. We have had a cold winter and we must remember from years past that the roads do change with the change in seasons. Melting snow brings grooves out on the road surface. Also, don’t forget the potholes that grew over the winter. When you get the bike out and go for your first ride, go slow, check the road conditions and watch out for all the car drivers that have forgotten that we are back on the roads...........................( Read more....)

 ' (3-2-19)     Don’t break your hand pointing the finger at the people in cars to quickly. Remember more of the motorcycle fatality accidents are the fault of the motorcyclist not car driver. (If you don’t believe me look at the last 3 years statistics) Give yourself a little extra time. That Winter rust takes a little while to wear off and riding skills be back up to proper levels. I’m just tired of visiting my friends in the hospital or worse......................( Read more....)

  (3-2-19)     As far as the legislative agenda is concerned, the word is meetings. I have had a meeting with Rep. Green, the sponsor of our Road Guarding bill and other topics, and I had another meeting with Lt. Miller of the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Government Affairs. Both these meeting were productive and other meetings will be scheduled with Michelle May with ODOT and more Legislators. Regarding the Road Guarding bill, Rep. Green is willing to reintroduce, and Rep. McClain is going to reintroduce HB548 (last session #), the Hearing Protection bill. As developments occur, information will be passed on. Other issues: E-15, profiling, autonomous vehicles, RPM Act, and other issues will be monitored and dealt with........................ ( Read more )

  (3-2-19)     Motorcycle Ohio is registering for classes and so far the numbers are almost double the number from last year at this time. We also have a new director at Motorcycle Ohio, Tyler Fehrman. Michele Piko had been running things after Chuck retired. Tyler has been a rider in the past and I think he will work out with a little of our help. Congratulations Tyler and we all look forward to working with you.
    One of the stories that I tell is about going to have coffee before work and this guy always asked me where I went last weekend and I would tell him and then I would say to him, why don’t you go with me next week, you would have fun. He always had an excuse. Then one day ....................... ( Read more )

Tired of sitting on your bike at Red Lights
that won't turn GREEN ????
    To enlist the help of Ohio’s motorcyclists, ODOT set up a special phone number & E-mail for motorcyclists for reporting problem intersections.
    When reports come in, ODOT will notifiy signal owners ( often a city or county ) about the situation and offer recommendations for improvement.
