December 10, 2008 by Hersey · Comments Off on 08NR30 – MRF News Release – Biker Magazine Erroneously Reports on the Current Status of the MRF
In the February 2009 Issue of Biker Magazine it has been erroneously reported that the MRF will no longer be engaging in issue advocacy or lobbying of any kind and that the MRF has been “reorganized” into a charity. “Nothing could be farther from the truth, our 501c4 status remains firmly in place, and we remain as focused as ever to being the Washington D.C. voice exclusively devoted to the street rider that champions the cause of rider safety and rider freedom” stated MRF President Kirk “Hardtail” Willard.

Once again our Virginia Legislature is about to convene, a dangerous time for all Virginia citizens. They will tackle issues concerning every aspect of your life. How much of your paycheck you get to keep, what roads will be free versus toll, where and what you can smoke, and many other issues from the sublime to the ridiculous. What’s this mean to you as a Virginia motorcyclist? There will be legislation concerning your rights as a rider. Some will enhance safety, some may enhance freedoms. There will surely be some from well intentioned non riders that will cause concern for the riding community.
