that was very thoughtful for those harley guys to do that.
but posting it here is preaching to the choir... we need more national exposure re: stuff like this.
AMA hello? i pay for the NRA to protect my 2nd Amendment rights... when the AMA gets their sh1t straight, and does more than changes race rules to ***** off manufacturers and squabble internally, i'll renew my membership...
Yeah, let's conveniently forget all the good things that the AMA does and let's always remember they don't do EXACTLY as you want. After all this is the "ME" generation. It's all about you and your wants, and until the AMA can do exactly what you want all the time, you will continue to be part of the problem and not part of the answer.

Great idea, sit on your money. Meanwhile, the liberal land grabbers never sleep, nor do the bureaucrats in there never ending quest to "protect" us. The AMA is fighting these wackjobs for you. Whether you agree w/ them on every issue or not, they're all we got.
-fight the enviro hacks to keep off road areas open and reopen closed lands.
I have to weigh in and say this is totally cool. It's nice to see people thinking of male motorcyclists as overgrown Boy Scouts than as evil biker dudes. Love this positive press. Now just need to figure out a way to get it in front of Dan Rather's face. Any suggestions?
I recommend we post a list of biker events that we've participated in in the past year and then send that list to CBS. I'll start. On September 7th I rode in the Big Jim Charity Ride for the Make a Wish Foundation. The ride started in Cumberland, MD and traveled to the crash site of Flight 93 in Somerset, PA, where a memorial was erected to honor those who gave their lives on 9-11-01. The ride finished with a picnic at the Mineral County Fair Grounds in Fort Ashby , WV. Raised about $4,000. I counted about 170 bikes on the ride. Next!
Dood, you can ride on my bike anytime even if I only have a 954. It is tougher to pull the front wheel unless I got someone riding *****... but then they only ride once. You have to promise not to swish around too much on the cloverleafs when Im draggin my knee though or I will get pissed and spike you on a mile marker.
I was having problems at my parking deck here in OKC. The magnetic loops don't read bikes. Not enough steel even in the Harley to signal it.
I, as well as the other riders, ride around the gate. That gets the security guys in a twist so I contacted the AMA rep for my district and asked for help. He provided me with a great letter to send to the owners/managers of the deck in hopes of getting additional loops added.
We still ride around the gate as the money and city approval to add the additional loops can take years but the owner and the manager both ride. They actually thanked me for the letter as, in their words, it gives them ammunition to go to the city and ask for approval install the loops. In the meantime we were all sent the owners, the managers and the assistant managers business cards with instructions to show them to "anyone who hassles you" and have them call if they have any problems.
My wife and I are both full members and have been for years. I figure as long as I'm willing to spend $400 on Two Brothers cans for my ST or $150 for heated grips on the RoadKing I'll keep sending my $29x2/yr to the AMA. Can't even buy a good pair of riding gloves for that price!
