GA Motorcycle Checkpoints update

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I just received this e mail, BE AWARE

As many of you know, the State of Georgia received $70,000.00 from the
NSTB for Motorcycle ONLY Safety Check Points. They will stop all Motorcycles at these Check Points.

We were informed by unnamed sources that the Check Points would start in early March to coincide with The Daytona Bike Week Event. Most points of entry to Florida will be involved.

We are anticipating them to start March 3rd in order to take advantage
of the additional flow of Motorcycle traffic thru our State.

I was told that the officers conducting the safety check points have
been trained in what to check for so be sure you, you paper work and your bike are in order.

We understand that this is just a way to increase revenues so do all
you can to avoid adding to the state funds.

There are many who Trailer into Georgia and ride into Florida from here.
You may wish to change your
plans and trailer on through to Florida

Dan Forrest,
State Director of A.B.A.T.E. Georgia

Alert From Florida

Not to scare anyone coming to our fine state, but if you're riding a motorcycle make sure your current driver's license has a motorcycle endorsement. In Florida driving a motorcycle without a Motorcycle Endorsement is a CRIMINAL OFFENSE, NOT A TRAFFICE OFFENSE. If stopped by LEO's (Law Enforcement Officers) and you don't have an endorsement, your will be arrested and taken to jail...in Vero Beach, FL it's a $500.00 bond to get out of jail, and up to $1000.00 when you go to court "IF" you don't have an endorsement at your court date. If you get your indorsement by court date, its up to a $325.00 fine for court and other misc costs. This is fact! I got the call from a relative at 1:15 am to come get his motorcycle. The police officer was nice enough to allow him to make a call from the scene, and then waited 20 minutes for me to get there to ride his bike home. (Later I had to ride my bike to get bail money from an ATM and get him out of the clink.)

The above is one reason I carry AAA, just in case I get hauled in on a bondable offense. Your AAA card may get you out of jail "if" you don't have someone to help you out.

I realize some states may not require an endorrsement, I don't know how that would affect a Florida LEO actions.

Also, although Florida does not require a helmet for riders over the age of 21, they do require at least $10,000.00 in medical coverage.

To close, Daytona and the surrounding areas will be LEO hotspots for stopping bikes with loud pipes, riders doing wheelies, stopies and just about anything else that may draw their attention.

Hope my recent experience will assist any riders heading to Florida.

Ride Safe,

Ps. I will be in Daytona on my Big Bird wing. :)

Motoring ot Canada - Something US Riders many Not Know

AAA just informed me that when I travel to Cananda, I should apply for a "Canadian" insurance I.D. Card. Contace AAA if you need further info. This is for cars and motorcycles, the I.D. cards are issued for a temporary period.

Motorcycle Checkpoints: American Bikers Need Not Deal with the Devil to Defeat Them

Motorcycle Checkpoints: American Bikers Need Not Deal with the Devil to Defeat Them

In their release entitled "11NR09 - MRF News Release - United States House of Representatives Bill to Prohibit Funding for Motorcycle Checkpoints" ( http://bit.ly/gxCy7x ) the Motorcycle Riders Foundation implies that American bikers should KISS Fascist Fat Jim Sensenbrenner's a*s so they can stay in General Population. To the contrary, I say that American bikers should KICK Fascist Fat Jim Sensenbrenner's a*s so they can help bring down the Prison!

Fat Jim Sensenbrenner is the sponsor of the USA Patriot Act:

Fat Jim Sensenbrenner is the sponsor of the REAL ID Act:

Fat Jim Sensenbrenner's next bill may eliminate all rights to privacy on the Internet:

If American Bikers have become such spineless Sheeple that they can only protect their rights by sucking up to the very people that are icons of all that we (should) oppose, then they deserve and should expect the ugly fate that awaits all COLLABORATORS when real freedom fighters wrest control from their fascist oppressors.

Well NOT ME, boys and girls: I SAY GROW A PAIR... LIKE I TOLD YOU MONTHS AGO ( http://bit.ly/gmHPU5 ), MAKE THE CHECKPOINTS TOO COSTLY AND THEY'LL GO AWAY.

F**K FAT JIM. AND F**K THE MRF...
