RIDERS ARE VOTERS
The Motorcycle Action Group, the British Motorcyclists Federation and the Motor Cycle Industry Association, and as of February 2010 the ACU too, are running a campaign to encourage riders to vote in the forthcoming General Election and to discuss issues with potential MPs.
2010 is a year where there could be big changes in parliament and this could be the best chance in decades to really influence opinions so that riders can get what they want.
Riders Are Voters (RAV) are organising Question Time events across the country so that riders can have a chance to ask questions of their Parliamentary Candidates.
These events are being held in dealer showrooms, so that the politicians have to come to us and meet us in our world.
If one of these events is close to you, please come along and meet the politicians who are asking for your votes.
Find out what they want to do about the potholes, or the way that the DSA is making it nearly impossible for youngsters to get a bike licence.
Ask them whether they support the fitting of non-slip manhole covers, or the provision of secure free parking.
What about their attitudes to car driver training, wearing compulsory hi-viz. or power limits for bikes?
How do they feel about the bike industry and everyone who works in it?
This is your chance to ask them.
The press are going to be there to listen. Please give these events your support!
Events schedule: MARCH 29TH @ DAVE MILLINGS MOTORCYCLES, WHITEHAVEN, CUMBRIA, FROM 7.30PM APRIL 3RD @ THE MANCHESTER BIKE SHOW APRIL 6TH @ FOWLERS OF BRISTOL APRIL 8TH @ GEORGE WHITE SUZUKI, SLOUGH, BERKS APRIL 13TH @ C&A SUPERBIKES, KINGS LYNN, NORFOLK
