We did a good job on that pig, I think we're ready for Guy and we work cheap.


Seriously Guy, don't forget about your family here. You need anything you know you'll have a crowd at your door.

Motorcycle Lobby Day
January 17, 2014
I want to remind everyone that this Monday is Motorcycle Lobby Day at the Virginia General Assembly. This is a holiday so many people are off. That morning, Virginia Coalition of Motorcyclists lobbyists, as well as members of other state motorcycle rights organizations, independent motorcyclists and any other interested people will go to the Virginia General Assembly to speak to the Delegates and Senators about upcoming legislation that affects motorcyclists in Virginia.

On Sunday January 19, from 12:00 p.m. until we get through, Virginia Coalition of Motorcyclists lobbyists will lead an informational meeting at the Four Points by Sheraton at 4700 South Laburnum Avenue, Richmond, VA 23231 to discuss this year's legislation affecting motorcyclists. We will also discuss how to talk to your legislators about these issues in case you have never done that. Later that evening, attendees will enjoy a free homemade BBQ dinner.

On Monday the 20th, we leave the hotel at 8:00 a.m. sharp for our annual trip to the Capitol. After lobbying our legislators, we will head to Penny Lane Pub where Tom McGrath's Motorcycle Law Group takes everyone to lunch as a thank you for coming to support Virginia Motorcyclists.

This year we have numerous bills of interest to Virginia motorcyclists. We have two bills to modify the definition of a motorcycle, and to create a new classification of motor vehicles called autocycles. In recent years we have seen numerous three wheeled vehicles on the market which are, for all purposes, three wheeled cars. They are controlled by a steering wheel as well as a foot controlled brake and throttle. Yet under current Virginia law these vehicles are motorcycles. There is legislation to make these vehicles autocycles and to further clarify the definition of a motorcycle.

We also have a bill which was filed today. HB 1215 increases the penalty for persons who kill or seriously injure another person by violating their right of way. You can follow that bill at:

http://lis.virginia.gov/cgi-bin/legp...1215&submit=GO

You can read the full text at:

http://lis.virginia.gov/cgi-bin/legp...141+ful+HB1215

As always, there will be numerous bills submitted at the last minute which will negatively affect motorcycling. As these bills are filed, we will be able to identify them and discuss them at lobby day so that we can convince the legislators why they are bad bills. Those who have participated in Lobby Day in the past remember bills that we have killed such as the one that would have required proof of insurance before one person could sell another person a motorcycle, even if the person buying the motorcycle had no intention of putting the bike on the road. We killed that one with the help of all of those who participated at Lobby Day. A few years ago we also defeated a bill that would have prohibited children under eight from riding on a motorcycle as a passenger by pointing out that the law improperly infringed on the rights and responsibilities of parents. Those at Lobby Day also pointed out the fact that in the prior ten years not a single child under eight was killed on a motorcycle.

I encourage everyone who can to join us. It is a lot of fun, it is educational, and most importantly it shows the legislators that motorcyclists are a significant and active portion of the electorate.

For more information you can call VCOM at (800) 437-9434. For Room Reservations call (804) 226-4300. As the hotel accommodations were just secured, room blocks may not be available until after December 15. We hope to see you at lobby day.

Central Virginia ADV Party and Movie Night 25 Jan

Okay, it is 20F outside, I've got fresh bread in the oven, and I'm thinking about next Saturday. Thought I'd just post this update to keep it in everyone's mind.

Things I know we could still use:

A couple of coolers with ice to pack the BYOBs in
lasagna or some type of pasta (ziti) or cold pasta salad
more cookies or desserts
more cowbell

I'll post more later, but it is critical that everyone bring their own chair, especially to watch the movie. We have a 1100 sq ft room for the movie and an elevated 60" screen, but no seating.

For those who haven't see the first post.

What: Central Virginia ADV pot luck dinner:
Location: Jeff Munn's warehouse in Petersburg
Time: 4 pm until ??? Saturday 25 Jan 2013
Cost: BYOB and something to share to eat
Bonus: my HD movie of riding the TAT coast to coast this last summer
Lodging: floor space available if you bring mattress and bag

RSVP list so far:

Jeff and Teresa Munn (10 lb pulled pork BBQ and home-made bread)
kwn306 and Sue (cheese crackers, dips and chips)
ddlewis
jgiacobbe maybe
dirtmonkey8 and wife (2 pecan pies)

(nametags and sharpie?)


Here is the teaser (trailer) again, for my TAT movie. TAT Rider: the SKS Tour Starring my 18 yo nephew Joe.

Sorry, but you'll have to click on the link because I'm stumped on how to embed it from Facebook.

Lory, I've got sharpies and will get the nametags. No worries there unless you've already got them. If you have them, let me know.
jeff

The party is still open to whomever wants to come. Post up if you can join us!

Anyone here happen to know if one can clean the soot/odor following an oil furnace malfunction themselves (and with what products), or if pros have to be called? Got home yesterday to black coming out the stack and toxic coming out the door. The FD shut the furnace and oil supply off (I turned the system off at the thermostat, leaving anything furnace to them) and vented the place, but I'm starting to notice soot deposits here and there so need to figure out cleanup, and neutralizing the odor would be a bonus. Also, anyone have a CO gauge I can borrow a week or two? (Reason for malfunction TBD; I had the "preventative maintenance" done in the fall and was told that everything looked clean/fine).

It is covered by insurance. It is a bear to clean. The oil in the soot bonds with the plastics in everything you own. You will find a gray haze everywhere. Try Servicemaster, Servepro etc.

I did home claims for 7 years before becoming an agent. Lots of experience here.

Gray haze everywhere is exactly what I'm finding in daylight. Thanks for the insight. Going to PM you further questions. Thanks again!

Sorry to hear about all that ! Sic Semper is right, it's a bear and its a claim. But if for some reason you decide against it, chem-sponges take off most, industrial strength degreaser cut with warm water is the next step and that will clean most surfaces. Plastics are trash, can't get the odor out. (blinds, containers etc.) if it got to insulation, replace it. Affected rooms should be painted and thermo fogged with a neutralizer/ deodorant.
Besides the 2 companies Semper recommended, Trystate Cleaning and Mitigation (804-397-9469) is another option I'd highly recommend. ( ...and The Man rides a GS 😁)
Feel free to PM me
Cheers !
Lory
