DH and I both are life members of ABATE of FL. There is nothing going on at the state level now due to summer vacations. I'm not a political activist but, someone has to look after our rights. We are looking for stiffer penalties for hitting a motorcyclist, as well as anti-discrimination. There are still places that refuse to wait on you because you ride a motorcycle.
I hope you all are supporting your local motorcyle rights group. It's alot of fun too!

I don't belong to any of the MC rights groups. I used to, but just didn't agree with some of their positions. I did write to two of the Quebec city officials to let them know that I would be riding right past Quebec without staying there since they don't allow motorcyles in the old city except directly to and from a hotel with which you have reservations. I did just that a couple of days ago. Now I'm about 30 miles outside Truro and heading down to Meteghan in Nova Scotia for a few days before heading home to Virginia.

Actually, I have a slightly funny story. I didn't really pay attention to the ban a few years ago and I was riding around the old city looking for a jewelry store I'd been at years earlier. Couldn't find it, so I pulled up in front of a couple of policeman in a car and walked back to them. They gave me some helpful directions and then told me to continue with my shopping, but when I was done, would I be so kind as to leave the city as I really wasn't allowed there! I guess it's the French attitude!

I am a very proud member and supporter of ABATE of Illinois,as well as a former and soon to be again, proud supporter of the MRF. Please join a motorcycle rights organization if you enjoy riding. As the saying goes," Freedom isn't free. "

clever ideas needed..help me please

Hi, I am one of the millions of unemployed people out there and w/o benefits. I was trying to come up with some clever ideas for bikers jewelry. I am not a biker nor do I know any. I was hoping to sell online and make some money.
I was thinking along the lines of Harley and other motorcyles. How about earrings with a cyle on them or skulls? Any better ideas out there??
Thanks in advance!
