BIKER ROAD BAN Virginia bikers are planning a protest ride along the lines of what bikers did in England. They plan to clog up the toll booths on the Friday leading into Labor Day weekend this coming fall. The primary reason is Virginia DOT isn't following our state's anti-discrimination law when it comes to toll road design. Bikers are being excluded, and we're going to push back in a big way.

Virginia bikers are hoping to team up with other Virginia and Maryland bikers to include the Chesapeake Bay Bridge as well.

ANNUAL RIGHTS CONFERENCE This year it will be in CHARLOTTE, North Carolina, May 10th - 13th, 2007. Details and online registration:
OREGON MAY RESTRICT KIDS FROM ATV RIDING

Oregon vs. ATV Riding Parents & Kids? Senator Allan Bates from Ashland, Oregon thinks he is smarter than most parents and is FOOLING AROUND with the rights of parents as to whether or not they have the intelligence to determine the abilities of their own kids' riding All Terrain Vehicles, ATV's.

He is introducing SB49 that would put severe limitations on the ages kids could legally ride an ATV. It says in essence that kids under 12 cannot ride at all; those 12 to 16 would be limited to 90cc's or less.

Additionally, there's ANOTHER alternative bill from these same quarters; it's SB101; and it requires Class I and Class III ATV operators who are 7 yrs old or older to have ATV operator permits whenever riding on premises open to the public. This law would authorize fines up to $180.00.
