Rider Privilege Plan
</p>


1. Limit all production
bikes to nothing over 400ccs

2. License plate numbers must be clearly visible on all helmets

3. All documentation of ownership must be available at all times

4. Documentation of training must be carried at all times

5. New helmets must be purchased every 3000 miles to ensure helmet effectiveness

6. New protective gear must be purchased every36 months to ensure effectiveness

7. DMV registration authorization tags must be purchased for all riding gear
and helmets to ensure they meet regulations.

8. To renew any DMV registration tags a written and course exam must be completed
to ensure all safety and training skills are up to date

9. Failure to meet any of the above is an automatic $500 dollar fine per violation

10. Local police should be aloud to pull over any motorcycle to ensure all safety
measure are up to date.



This will limit deaths and create a higher level of safety
for everyone. It is unfathomable that anyone would not want this to take place.
This is what the government is here for. Let's get the legislation in place
so we can enjoy our hobby safely.

Re: Barbados: Making the proper move to motorcycle safety
 
Let's not forget that before 1900, global temperatures were in complete stasis for the previous 1 billion years, and since then have showed an increase. Also, weather patterns were completely calm and unfluctuating, whereas now we have global-warming-caused heat waves, global-warming-caused cold snaps, global-warming caused glaciation, global-warming caused de-glaciation, and global-warming-caused hurricanes and tsunamis.



What has happened since 1900? The invention of the motorcycle. Post-hoc ergo propter hoc. Ban motorcycles, save the planet.

Dude, don't forget residential swimming pools. 87 times more likely than a gun to kill a child*. We must ban killer death pools.



*Not regurgitated from an NRA press release. Just Google the number of homes with pools/guns vs the number of children killed by drowning/accidental shooting. Do the math.

Re: Be Grateful!
 
Thank you.


Really, I view this as a
starting point. There is so much more we could do to increase safety.</p>


Long term, once the first
round of legislation is complete, we can move on to bigger things.</p>
  1. Devices limiting bikes
    from exceeding the speed limit
  2. Automatic shut off to
    prevent high speed chases.
  3. Automatic shut off when
    aggressive riding is attempted
  4. A track only device to
    allow for aggressive riding
  5. GPS tracking for all
    bike
  6. Limit bike riding to
    optimum weather conditions to prevent biker fatigue on warm days and dangerous
    riding conditions on snow/ice/rain days. 65-85 degree days and nothing less
    than partly cloudy.
  7. Employers should be able
    to run a background report on all bike riders to see their riding history.
    Recklessness can be grounds for dismissal and continuous employment shows
    aiding criminal acts and attaches responsibility to the business if criminal
    acts or injury to property, community or citizens takes place during employment.

Hey, I've seen "First Blood"! - I know better! All you 'Nam Vets are ticking timebombs, just waiting for some law-upholding local Sheriff to merely innocently do his job to "set you off"..............

Yes, if he continues this path, it will prove uneccessary to "Re-Educate" him........

I think perhaps you're onto something here!



You ever consider running for Congress?

Maybe it would be less fragmented if everybody joined the NRA.



No organization is perfect. I have issues with the NRA and AMA, but every year they get my dues because I'm infinitely better off with them than without them.
