From Motorcycle-USA and the AMA this morning comes word of a bill in the house committee on transportation that has the potential to change motorcycling in the USA and, if passed it would be for the better!

The bill calls for renewed funding for motorized trails and a ban on motorcycle only check points....let's cross your finger that by some stroke of good fortune - common sense will prevail.

It would be wonderful to see some of these positive changes take root and to see our community be treated in a more equitable manner!

Now if only we Canadian riders could get our heads together and have a ton of people share in the elbow grease perhaps we could see similar changes be considered here!

Communication and a united front and effort needs to be I a day dreamer or what!
