Oppose VA HB 1850. Let us transport our children!

January 13, 2011 by · Comments Off on Oppose VA HB 1850. Let us transport our children! 

All Virginia Motorcyclists need to be aware of House Bill 1850 which has been introduced by Delegate Christopher Stolle of Virginia Beach. It prohibits any child under the age of eight from riding on a motorcycle. If you have a child, grandchild, niece, nephew, cousin or neighbor who enjoys riding with you and is under the age of eight they would be unable to do so anymore if this bill passes. I know that many of you share memories like mine. My daughter and I have spent many hours since she was six riding at events such as the Vets ride, the 911 ride, etc. She has learned responsibility, charity and patriotism in part from her contact with motorcyclists and the motorcycling community. Delegate Stolle wishes to rob future generations of such memories.

Call to Action HB1870 – Motorcycles/Two Abreast

January 29, 2009 by · 3 Comments 

HB1870 (allows two to be operated abreast in single lane) made it out of the Transportation Committee this morning 11 to 9. Now is the time to start writing our delegates and asking that they support this bill when it comes up for a vote on the House floor, probably early next week. Below is some information about the bill, and some talking points you may want to use in your correspondence:

HB1808 (Patron – Delegate Bill Janis) – Allows motorcyclists to ride two abreast in a single traffic lane. http://leg1.state.va.us/cgi-bin/legp504.exe?091+sum+HB1870

Talking Points:
– Riding two abreast is allowed in 48 states
– Two motorcycles abreast in a traffic lane aids in making the motorcycles more visible to other traffic
– Allows better comunication between riders
– There has never been a study, or statistics kept to show this is a dangerous practice
– This would not require this type of riding, it would simply allow it, and motorcyclists would be able to decide for themselves if, when, and with whom they would engage in this practice.

Please email as many Delegates as possible, but at the very least, email YOUR Delegate.
