Maine has a terrific motorcycle activist group.....

We have the United Bikers of Maine - UBM (similar to ABATE but not the same)

we have a Motorcycle riders course - and our elected representatives seem to be motorcycle friendly...Maine has a political activist group of UBM members dedicated to looking into the dudes runnimg for office....PAC

we have been helmet free since the 1970's....

We had over 10,000 motorcycles at the annual Toys for Tots...

check us out if you live in Maine or just want to get to know how its done up here.....

glad to hear you are involved in MC rights......The AMA is pretty good but there are also other MC rights organizations like ABATE and the MMA and the CMRA etc. etc. that really help fight for the cause-

we as bike riders should belong to our local organization and be a registered voter if we want to help with the rights of motorcyclists.

I really want to join a club, but can't decide between the AMA, Warlocks, Mongols, and the Outlaws. Any suggestions?

I got pulled over in Boulder on my Sportster in "78" for noise. I had Kansas plates so they did not give me a ticket, but asked me to quite crusing. Strange city.

Yes, they pulled me over for noise. I was from out of state so they did not give me a ticket , but asked me to stop crusing. I don't know if they still carry a db meter in the cop cars, but at that time they did. Boulder is a very different city. Tree hugging at it's finest.

Have I heard correctly that the current AMA president has decided to give up on the fight to allow loud pipes and join the lobbying to make them illegal?? If so, that is a radical departure. Just wondering if anyone knows for sure......Also am planning a very long road trip for this summer through many parts of Colorado, but have heard that not only in Boulder but in Denver, tickets are given on the spot for loud pipes. And expensive too. Any truth to that AMA members??
