  • More Than Holding Common Ground

    The legislative priorities for the Motorcycle Riders Foundation, were determined at the 2023 Meeting of the Minds in Pennsylvania. SMRO leaders and their legislative directors met and collectively decided the direction the MRF would take during the 2024 session of Congress.
    Bikers Inside the Beltway is more than holding common ground. Since 2009, Bikers Inside the Beltway has grown to demonstrate the collective grassroots voice of the nation’s street-riding motorcyclists. From less than 25 attendees in 2009 to well over one hundred in 2023, Bikers Inside the Beltway is more than holding common ground.

    In 2023, motorcyclists attending Bikers Inside the Beltway visited all 535 congressional offices. That same orchestrated visit will be part of Bikers Inside the Beltway 2024. Now is the time to plan to attend Bikers inside the Beltway – May 20 & 21, 2024. Event registration is free. However, we request you register early to help us plan the event.

    Holding common ground takes work and planning. In addition to the MRF “Roadshow” and MRF legislative priorities, interwoven with action from members. Individual members, Sustaining Member partners from SMROs, motorcycle clubs and motorcycling businesses are the driving forces behind the MRF’s victories. Bikers Inside the Beltway will bring the MRF’s legislative priorities to Capitol Hill. MRF legislative priorities include but are not limited to the following:

    • All legislation involving Autonomous Vehicles (AV)
    • Preservation of Internal Combustion Engines (ICE)
    • Protecting the Fuel Supply (Keep E10 or lower available)
    • Right to Repair (essential to maintaining a vibrant aftermarket)
    • Protecting High-Performance Products
