Wisconsin motorcyclists were well represented in
Washington, DC, during the Motorcycle Riders
Foundation (MRF) Bikers Inside the Beltway. There
were ten ABATE of Wisconsin members who were able
to take the time to attend the MRF's
National Motorcycle Lobby Day. We had scheduled
meetings in the offices of all eight members of
the House of Representatives and with both U.S.
Senators and ... we did well. With few
exceptions our Representatives were understanding
of the issues and supported our efforts. We got a
commitment from Rep. Ribble to introduce the
language for a motorcycle-profiling bill, and Sen.
Johnson said he would be willing to consider
sponsoring the bill in the Senate. This is a great
accomplishment since this was the first time that
this topic was brought to them. I would like to
thank everyone who attended and congratulate them
on their success.
