California Riders - Can You Help?

4 replies to this topic

Posted February 19, 2002 - 07:51 PM


As you may or may not know, Wally and I are working very hard to fight for our right to ride here in California aganist the greenies. We are not leaving any stone unturned. We are contacting every organization including AMA, Blue Ribbon, manufacturers, dealers and so on. This requires an incredible amount of time. The greenies are well funded and very well organized. We believe they can be defeated with a little effort on our parts. We are looking for a few good men and women to help us out. If you would be willing to lend a little assistance and work with us it would be greatly appreciated. All we need is a network of folks across the state willing to make a few calls and send a few emails. In the next day or so I will provide a list of phone numbers and email addresses. Please reply to this post if you would be willing to lend a hand. Send me or WMcGRATH a PM so that we can get in touch with you. Thanks, Paul M.

Holy cow. I didn't even see this post until now! I think I blew right past it.

I would be willing to send some e-mails and be a voice. I could drop a few calls, too. No problem at all.

I urge everyone to go to the WR400/WR426 discussion board and check out two posts:

"California Riders - Can You Help"
and "Attention California Riders"

We have been trying to get people involved
in helping to save our sport. The California
Off-Highway Vehicle Commission is being taken over by environmentalist, one Commissioner is Executive Director of an environmental group and is actually sueing the Forrest Service to shutdown OHV areas.

Please check out the posts mentioned above, if you want to have anywhere to ride in the future you better get involved.
(Pass this information and these posts on to any interested groups, we need help getting the current vacancies on the commission filled with OHV friendly individuals)
