May 29, 2024 - Message From Director Of Membership


Text Box:



From The Desk Of
The MRF Director of Membership



If you are a current Motorcycle Riders Foundation member, thank you for your support. Because of members like you, we have been very successful in Washington getting legislation passed that benefits all motorcyclists. But our fight on Capitol Hill is just beginning! Our mode of transportation and our lifestyle are under constant attack. Here are some of our current legislative issues. 

<span data-preserver-spaces="true">Right to Repair
Do you enjoy working on your motorcycle? <span data-preserver-spaces="true">Do you want to guarantee access to the parts, tools and service information <span data-preserver-spaces="true">required<span data-preserver-spaces="true"> to modify, service and maintain your bike?<span data-preserver-spaces="true"> If you answered yes to these questions, it is time to contact your legislator in the House of Representatives and tell <span data-preserver-spaces="true">them to cosponsor <span data-preserver-spaces="true">H.R.<span data-preserver-spaces="true"> 906, the Right to Equitable and Professional Auto Industry Repair Act or the REPAIR Act

The REPAIR Act<span data-preserver-spaces="true"> will ensure that vehicle owners or repair shops <span data-preserver-spaces="true">will have <span data-preserver-spaces="true">access to<span data-preserver-spaces="true"> the information, software or tools needed to work on vehicles. The proposed law also establishes rules regarding vehicle data access. This commonsense law will help preserve consumer choice and a fair marketplace. 

<span data-preserver-spaces="true">Internal Combustion Engines (ICE) 
Earlier this year, the Biden Administration presented <span data-preserver-spaces="true">plans to shift this country to a majority Electric Vehicle<span data-preserver-spaces="true"> (<span data-preserver-spaces="true">EV<span data-preserver-spaces="true">) <span data-preserver-spaces="true">market over the next ten years. In June, Senator Markwayne Mullin of Oklahoma introduced S.2090, the Preserving Choice in Vehicle<span data-preserver-spaces="true"> Purchases Act. This <span data-preserver-spaces="true">bill would amend the Clean Air Act to prevent a ban on the sale of Internal Combustion Engines, effectively trumping any state law that outlaws their sale. S. 2090 is the Senate’s version of <span data-preserver-spaces="true">H.R.<span data-preserver-spaces="true"> 1435, a bill that recently passed out of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. 

Fuel choice:

  • <span data-preserver-spaces="true">Advocate for targeted changes to the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), including the following actions: 
  • <span data-preserver-spaces="true">Support the universal availability of approved fuel blends containing no more than 10 percent ethanol by volume. 
  • <span data-preserver-spaces="true">Promote additional research and independent studies concerning the effects of higher blends of renewable fuels on motorcycles. 
  • <span data-preserver-spaces="true">Ensure the availability of separate pumps (i.e., no multi-dispensing) to minimize the risk of damage to motorcycle engines where<span data-preserver-spaces="true"> a higher blend of renewable fuel blends is available. 

<span data-preserver-spaces="true">These are just a sample of legislative issues the MRF is currently addressing. The MRF cannot do this alone. We need all motorcyclists to help put pressure on our legislators. Toward this goal, I have a challenge for all current MRF members:

<span data-preserver-spaces="true">Recruit five new members and receive a free membership for yourself! You will also be entered in a drawing for a $250 Meeting of the Minds voucher. I know you have riding partners, club members, SMRO members and friends who are not MRF members. Why aren’t they? So, let’s get out there and find new riders to push our message to new heights! 

Thanks again for all you have done to make the MRF the leading advocate for motorcyclists in Washington <span data-preserver-spaces="true">DC<span data-preserver-spaces="true">.

<span data-preserver-spaces="true">In Freedom,

Eric Ross 
MRF Director of Membership
