MRF Leaders Report- June

June 10, 2008 by · Comments Off on MRF Leaders Report- June 

WASHINGTON UPDATE – The Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) is pleased to report that the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) has renewed the charter for the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Motorcycle Advisory Council (MAC) for an additional two years. The MAC advises the Secretary of Transportation on all issues concerning motorcyclists and infrastructure issues such as roads, bridges, and barriers. No rulemaking was required to extend the charter; instead it was the positive results of the MAC that warranted the go-ahead from the country’s chief transportation boss. The MRF commends Secretary Peters for recognizing the need for the MAC to continue. Under normal circumstances Secretary do not reauthorize councils that they do not have to. Peters by law did not have to renew the charter which uses some of her very limited discretionary dollars to fully fund this council. That’s why we thank her for her attention to this very important issue.

Robbie Knievel FORT WORTH – Daredevil Robbie Knievel, son of the late Evel Knievel, got the crowd going before the race, by clearing 21 Hummers on a motorcycle against a stiff wind that stood the track’s flags straight out.

Knievel gripped the throttle and pointed his speeding bike toward the ramp on the track’s frontstretch. It launched him high above the SUVs, and he hung there a moment – buffeted by gusts as fireworks and flames shot up around him – before landing with a little bounce and plenty of room to spare.
