Support and vote for those who support the sport

I have sent emails and messages to candidates and if they say they will support the moto I will vote for them.

This is my text:
Some in our club, bayarearidersforum.com are pretty politically active in regards to highway safety and off road OHV access.
Do you think motorcycles make a positive contribution to our society? If so, we would like to spread the word in our community. We, as motorcyclists, are not always thought of doctors and lawyers and architects and engineers and plumbers etcetera. We are those, and more.

We vote. Is there someone I can chat with?

It is gonna be hard for anyone that has no exposure to motorcycling to know of the positive contributions.

It would have been better to have pointed out what you think the positive contributions are instead of relying on someone that is clueless about riding.

Like ..........motorcycles are more environmentally friendly than 4 wheeled vehicles.

The gas used is way less than 4 wheel cars. As long as a motorcycle is moving, the gas is used for motion unlike 4 wheels vehicles idling in traffic.

Parking spaces are smaller.

The weight of motorcycles do not damage roads as heavier vehicles.

And so on.......

Awesome! What would be even more awesome is you upgrading my text with your suggestions and sharing it with us and everywhere you can.

Please? Pretty please?
