“Dedicated to Freedom of the Road” is one of our mottos; “Education instead of legislation” is another. We are not a social or riding club, although much camaraderie exits among our members.

Some people refer to us as the “anti-helmet law people” and, while that is true, it’s only one aspect of many issues we’re involved in concerning motorcycling and motorcycle rights. Motorcycling is no longer an activity that can be taken for granted. There are people, bureaucrats, politicians and organizations that have a plan for bikers/riders/motorcyclists, and we must continually be on guard. Education and knowledge about the issues is your friend; action is the key.  We conduct motorcycle safety courses, educate legislators, the public and our members, fight unfair lobbying practices and work with other nations to ensure the safety of our chosen method of transportation as global harmonization materializes. We are a recognized political power!  We ask you to put a value on what motorcycling means to you, and consider what you might do to keep it.
