    MISSION STATEMENT WHO WE ARE

    We are a non-profit organization of motorcycle enthusi-asts from all walks of life. We lobby and educate the government and the general public to promote motorcy-cling in a safe and positive image. We endeavor to enlist the cooperation and participation of all organizations and individuals that share a similar interest in preserving our American tradition of FREEDOM. We promote mo-torcycle safety, training, & political awareness. We ARE NOT A CLUB OR A GANG. We fund our work through toy runs, poker runs, campouts, and other motorcycle activi-ties. We are your neighbors & friends who work, pay taxes, and get involved with our community. We serve and support our country and believe in freedom. We use all legal means to protect our rights without infringing on the rights of others.

    OUR GOALS

    To become a powerful and viable political force in legis-lative matters concerning the motorcyclist.

    To promote the safe riding habits without infringing on individual freedoms.

    To motivate the bikers to write letters to their legislators before, during, and after the legislative session.

    To furnish our members with a newsletter to keep all bikers informed in regards to upcoming legislation.
