Senate Bill 22 Now in the US House-HURRY !!!

This land grab WILL hurt all dual-sport riders.

Go here and contact your US Representative:

This could go up for a vote in the next ten days.

I sent an email to my Rep. and send a direct comment to the forest service office.

Here in VA the impact on will be significant, especially for some of the most popular riding areas near Harrisonburg.

Dual Sport riders make your voice heard!

Got it done, though ultimately it will likely do little good as the ubiquitous flood of green liberalism takes hold in Washgington.

Oh well, I reckon the woods will only be less crowded as folks fall in line.

I sent my Rep a letter today. Both Alabama Senators voted against it. We need to get many letters and emails out. Contact all your friends.

Done. Thanks.

Here's my (poorly-written) verbiage if you want to copy. Make sure in the subject line you get to the point: HB22: please vote NO

Please vote NO on House Bill 22. I use and enjoy access to forest service land (hiking and motorcycling) that would be closed by House Bill 22.

I respect the land, and the intent behind the bill, but there's an alarming amount of land that would no longer be available to me if this bill passes.

This is an important issue for me--I'd like to be able to share these activities with friends and family and strongly urge you to vote no.

Sent a vote NO message to R P. McHenry.

Emailed a notice with a link to everyone I know that mountain bikes because we'll lose those trails too. If anyone is into hunting or horseback riding and knows a group to contact I'd let them know as it will effect them also.

Remember - we're fighting groups like the Sierra Club who want to see it passed.

Both the AMA and the Blue Ribbon Coalition have reached out to members of Congress over the last couple of days. That's membership $ at work.
