pedestrian?

The police report in my accident did not list me as a pedestrian. It listed my bike as a motor vehicle. The law here is at best too vague. We may all just have to insure ourselves out of self defense.

We could form a moped gang. hahhaha. <joke! mocking the Geico insurance commercial....>

Yea your right Happy but it just isn't that way. I hope some how we can do somethig to get the laws in this state changed in our favor.
You would think the government would want to promote this sort of thing . Of course they have to figure a way they can make their money off the top before they will lift a finger to help us.

So what does Bobby Jingle think of mo bikes? Is he still gov there? I don't trust him but he might take some measures just to try to gain sympathy or popularity, including sticking up for the little guy once in a while.

I've got a better idea. If anyone wants to help me make a Youtube Public Announcement type video, pro MB, PM.
There ya go Happy. Get the public to view the MABs as positively as possible. Kind of redo the old Honda commercials....You meet the nicest people on a Honda. That was sheer marketing genius in its day. Prior to that, peoples perceptions of motorcycles were limited to police, or Marlon Brando bike gangs. Honda in one fell swoop changed the perception to regular people could get up on two wheels too, and it was a good thing. Actually we should have an easier time of it because we are usually starting with a neutral image where Honda started with a negative image. Hopefully the legalities would follow public opinion. I would offer to help, but my talents are limited to thinking about how to do it...don't seem to be able to pull it off. If you ever need some thought, I would be happy to do what I can. :D

I think that's a good idea Happy. Be glad to help just let me know how. Yes Bobby is still governer here.. He has changed a few things here. As far as his views on mb's , I don't know but if there were enough public attention drawn. I'm sure he would address it. People tend to work when the eyes of the public are on them.

You were speaking of gangs. Well the general public is not a " Gang" but there is something to be said about numbers.

Right you are scarecrow. Actually, some one here brought the idea that the newest form of gang is the police/legal system. I kind of agree with that thought. Not all, but some of them have become thugs.

As long as peoples vote counts for something, numbers count for something.
