09LR02 – MRF Leaders Report – January 2009

MRF ASKS FOR SUPPORT OF RAY LAHOOD

The Motorcycle Riders Foundation would like to encourage its members, the motorcycling community and all concerned Americans to join us in support of Ray LaHood, the designated nominee for Secretary of Transportation.  We ask that you join us in our efforts of supporting this nomination by calling your own United States Senator and ask them to vote YES to confirm the nomination of Mr. LaHood.

Ray LaHood served in the Congress from 1995 until 2008 as the representative from the 18th District of Illinois.  His record on motorcycle issues during his tenure was outstanding.  ABATE of Illinois considered him to be one of their best friends and allies in Congress.  He has even been named a MRF Champion of Motorcycle Rights & Safety in the past.

Virginia: Proposal Eliminates Safety Check on Red Light Cameras

January 20, 2009 by · 2 Comments 

Virginia legislative proposal allows cities to use the shortest possible yellow time at red light camera intersections.

A bill introduced last week in the General Assembly quietly seeks to eliminate a significant motorist protection built into Virginia’s existing red light camera law. The proposal of a pair of Democratic state delegates representing Virginia Beach, Joseph F. Bouchard and Robert W. Mathieson, would delete just three words from that statute, but the change would have wide-ranging effects. Under current law,
cities that want to install traffic cameras must first submit a detailed engineering justification to state transportation experts.

These are some of the ones that need our support:

08NR30 – MRF News Release – Biker Magazine Erroneously Reports on the Current Status of the MRF

December 10, 2008 by · 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.

November 19, 2008 by · Comments Off on 08NR27 – MRF News Release – The Motorcycle Riders Foundation attends Fifth Federal Highway Administration Motorcycle Advisory Council Meeting 

Last week the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) held the fifth meeting of the Motorcycle Advisory Council. The Council convenes twice a year to discuss infrastructure issues of concern to motorcyclists. The Motorcycle Riders Foundation Vice President of Government Relations, Jeff Hennie, is one of the nine seated council members.

“This council meeting was significant because it was the first meeting since the charter was extended past its initial two year trial run” said Jeff Hennie. He added, “The likelihood of keeping this council intact well past the congressionally mandated 2 years is very good and gets better with each accomplishments of the council”.

On January 19th, 2009 the Virginia Coalition of Motorcyclists (VCOM) will give you a chance to have your say. We start Lobby day with a conference on Sunday afternoon, this year it will be January 18th at 12:00 noon at the Holiday Inn Crossroads in Richmond. We will go over the basics of lobbying, address every bill in consideration that affects motorcyclists and the ins and outs of what they will mean if passed. That evening we have an absolutely top notch BBQ dinner prepared by Stuart Newton of Hampton Roads Harley Davidson. This year he is adding beef brisket and mustard based BBQ sauce. Should be the best yet!
