In 2015, Congress re-established the Motorcyclist Advisory Council in the Highway Bill to advise the Federal Highway Administration on "issues of concern to motorcyclists." This important group would serve as the ONLY official forum on a national scale for motorcyclists to have an open dialogue with the Government. And yet, all but one individual selected was there to represent the technical aspects of the Council, including engineering, construction and traffic safety systems as well as roadway data. Only one seat out of ten was designated for a national motorcycle riders' association to alone speak to the riding experiences and concerns of more than 8.5 million motorcyclists in the U.S.

This is unacceptable, we must petition the government to add motorcyclists to the Council!

​Together, let's spread the word: #LetRidersSpeak

Does NHTSA Think Animals' Lives are More

Important Than Riders?

Tell the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that biker lives matter....and are MORE IMPORTANT THAN ANIMALS! Last month, NHTSA released a document concerning safety policies for self-driving cars. Not only were motorcyclists not even mentioned in the 36-page document, there was a section that urged automakers to account for detection of pedestrians, bicyclists and animals! And yet, motorcyclists weren't even mentioned.

Tell NHTSA what you think by filing comments with the agency on this critical issue. A pre-drafted letter awaits your signature:

Now's Your Chance to Tell the EPA

About Your Concerns Over Ethanol

Comments Due August 31!

In the last several years, we have seen increasingly higher blends of ethanol like E10 and E15 showing up at the pump. However, these higher blends, specifically E15, have not been approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for use in small engines like those in motorcycles. Studies have shown the potential of clogged in-tank pumps and filters as well as potential damage to fuel lines, injectors, seals, gaskets, and valve seats, as well as to carburetors.

As a result, the EPA banned the use of E15 and higher blends of ethanol in small engines, effectively making its use illegal in a number of instances. In turn, many of the manufacturers of smaller engine vehicles and equipment started including statements that warranties would be voided if E15 was used.

Last month, the EPA actually proposed a reduction in the amount of biofuels, like ethanol, used in the U.S. marketplace.

While this activity is encouraging, the proposed volumes are still extremely high - sitting at levels that our motorcycles cannot handle.

We need your help - Comment on the EPA proposal to let them know while it's a start, it's not good enough!
