AMA - And Justice For All Campaign

Another good reason to join the AMA if you have not already done so. The AMA (American Motorcycle Association) their mantra is Rights. Riding. Racing. Well we support Riding and Racing that is for sure. We all ride and most of us follow the AMA circuit. We had around 20 people associated with Redline go to Mid-Ohio, an AMA Sanctioned Race. Well now is the time to get into the Rights part of it. Follow this link to see what the latest and greatest is for our riding rights. See if you can help if you can.

The "An Justice For All Campaign" is a good thing for penaltys to people who are neglegent driving and only get slapped with a fine rather than prison for killing a motorcyclist.

A van driver in Iowa crosses the center line of the road, running head-on into a group of six motorcyclists. Three are killed, and two more are seriously injured. The driver gets off with a fine of $70—less than an average speeding ticket.

In addition to the Justice for All campaign, the AMA has finally begun to take a stance on loud pipes, and the negative effect it has on ALL motorcylists.

Yeah those Sound & Fury articles on loud exhaust are really interesting.

Another victory is the approval of bike-crash research in congress.

Loud pipes BS

Quote:
Several reports lend support to this claim as they suggest that virtually two thirds of all accidents involving a motorcycle and another motor vehicle are a direct result of a motorist in the car turning into the lane of a motorcycle and violating the motorcyclist’s right of way.
Motorcycle Safety foundation

When I hear the BULL SHIT that Loud Pipes saves lives, I have to snicker. It's just a justification for the V2 crowd for there loud and obnoxious exhaust.

If over 60% of motorcycle accidents happen directly in front of the motorcycle, what direction is the sound going from said motorcycle boys and girls?

Maybe directly away from the on-coming vehicle?

So the moral of the story is visibility. Riding with your bright lights on during the day is one, but it has also been proven that a bright colored helmet also works. Your helmet will be seen better cause of the height of your helmet is closer to eye level to the cagers.
