ATTENTION AMERICAN MOTORCYCLISTS

If you are not a member of a motorcyclists' rights organization (MRO) ... I have just given you 26 reasons to join.

If you belong to a state MRO (SMRO) ... and do little more than show up for parties and show off your patches ... I have just given you 26 reasons to get informed and involved.

If you are a leader of a local SMRO chapter where bikers have been (or will be) maimed or killed by negligent, care-less, distracted or impaired cagers ... I have just given you 26 reasons to shift your resources away from the next charity poker run and towards the support of downed riders and their families.

If you are the leader of a state or national MRO ... I have just given you 26 reasons to stop playing pattycake with the nannycrats, and start getting aggressive about MOTORCYCLE AWARENESS policies, programs and ploys focusing ALL motorists' attention on CRASH PREVENTION.

Speaking strictly for myself and no other individuals or organizations,
