In the US of A the American Motorcycle Association he decided that it was time for riders to educate themselves about where the various politicians stand on issues related to motorcycles.

Being a non partisan organization they do not endorse any candidate but they do help you wade through the mire and get straight to the matters that are most important to riders.

Between questionnaires that were sent out and the voting records on the various issues, the AMA has been able to give one a pretty good insight as to the politicians and their mind set. Perhaps here in Canada it is time to do the same thing?

Lord knows it would be nice to know where some of our politicians stand on things like noise pollution, road and infrastructure maintenance, policing, helmets, after market pipes and accessories, importation...

Yes, I think the AMA may be on to something very significant!
