Contact: Tim Tennimon, Executive Director, ABATE Of California, Inc.
ABATE of California Inc., is resolute in our commitment to move forward
and stand strong in the motorcycle rights movement. With mounting pressure
from state and federal agencies we are facing motorcycle smog laws, low
noise ordinances, a motorcycle safety summit that is working in
conjunction with the CHP and NHTSA to impose more restrictions on riding
your motorcycle, helmet laws and cities that want to limit gatherings by
In order to strengthen our position we are committed to working with all
MRO's including NCOM, MRF, AMA, MMA and any state motorcycle rights
organizations that strengthens our lobby on legislative issues and on
Our united front with these other MRO's make us better prepared to attack
issues on a broader scope by having access to legal assistance, promoting
the sharing of information among the SMROs and different groups,
supporting and increasing political and legal effectiveness through free
assistance with legislative strategy, safety projects, public awareness,
information updates and assistance in both the legislative and judicial

Why is this coming from the Motorcycle Rights Foundation??? Why did ABATE of California, which is a state MRO, have a need to go national with this statement and why did the MRF feel it necessary to assist them???
Could they (ABATE of California) just put this statement on their website??? Would it not be a foregone conclusion that as a Motorcycle Rights Organization one would not have to announce to the world that they will cooperate with other organizations of common interest in areas of common interest???
Hmmmm, could this have anything to do with their recent alliance with NCOM/AIM (National Coalition of Motorcyclists/AId to Injured Motorcyclists) ???? Why did they leave that "AIM" part out??? Especially considering that if you google "NCOM" your first reference to their National site will be http://www.aimncom.com/ (Note that it is listed aimncom, aim being first) and it will look like this, if you do it before they change it:
Looking closely at either (click to enlarge) do you see anything that screams, "Bikers Rights" can you see anything that does not scream Ambulance Chaser. Whoops we apologize. Poor choice of words. Now were you of a mind to you could go to http://www.aimncom.com/ncom/ncom.htm which is the secondary reference page and read it.
Check out the board of directors. See how many ABATE members are on the Board of Directors.
See this little Blurb here: http://www.aimncom.com/news/press/1997_11_press1.htm (bottom of the page)
Now that little bolded part up there. See it. Where have we seen it before? Especially when some of us were busting our ass'es to try and stop HB137 and one individual was hollerin, " The bill is dead, the bill is dead, do not write your legislatures."If you're one of those cyber-bikers whose biggest dilemma is how to clean the grease from your fingers before you sit down at the keyboard, cruise by our new AIM/NCOM website at aimncom.com to find out the latest and greatest in the world of motor motorcycling and motorcyclists' rights. The site features a calendar of events, helmet law status and other Motorcycle Laws, AIM and NCOM news and lotsa links!
Well lets see. Lets see who we find if we click on Board of Directors on that page.
And would not one think that if The President/lobbyist/ of ABATE of Florida were also Chairman of the Board of NCOM he could have enlisted the AID of some of them attorneys to fight HB137? Or could it be that a heap of attorneys will make good bucks of HB137?
And what is MRF's role???? Have we been sold out??? Note they did not mention B.O.L.T.!Add to Technorati Favorites
