There are still places in the Ozarks the police won't go. I like the mindset of the hill folk there. KC and St Louis have a bunch of asshats trying to dictate to the rest of the state but they are standing up and fighting the Libs.
I think Idaho has the largest continuous wilderness in the country which sounds good, I just don't think I could stand the winters.

Anyway this is way off topic it should be in florida love it or leave it.

Here is the answer from the AMA

Thank you for using the “Contact Us” feature at www.AMADirectlink.com to share your concerns regarding Florida HB-137 and SB-802.

You’re correct – both bills have been amended in committee and differ from their introduced versions. The reckless operation provision remains; the exceeding the speed limit provision was raised from 30 mph over to 50 mph over; and language was added to require that both wheels remain on the ground at all times (brief exceptions provided) and the license tag must be securely mounted (no flip-up tags).

We remain concerned with the language that requires a rider to remain on the seat at all times. As you know, surmounting obstacles requires the rider to stand on the pegs/floorboards for a brief moment (this technique is taught in the Motorcycle Safety Foundation Basic Rider Course). We have written to the sponsors of HB-137 and SB-802 to point this out. Further, we believe the prohibition on flip-up license tags should be treated as nonmoving infractions, subject to the same penalties already provided for an obscured license tag on other vehicles.

You can review the history and text for HB-137 at http://www.flsenate.gov/session/index.cfm?BI_Mode=ViewBillInfo&Mode=Bills&SubMenu=1&Year=2008&billnum=137 and for SB-802 at http://www.flsenate.gov/session/index.cfm?BI_Mode=ViewBillInfo&Mode=Bills&SubMenu=1&Year=2008&billnum=802.

Note that the committee substitutes for both bills are posted on the Florida Legislature links above.

Thanks again for contacting us and for your many years of membership support.

Ok I understand they've passed "Something" but haven't seen what the final version looked like. Anyone know?
