New page, support our veterans
The board and officers are looking forward to seeing all of our members and any newcomers that may want to see who we are and what we do, at our Membership Appreciation Party on Aug 18th at the Deerhead. New Hampshire Automobile Dealers is the sponsor of this event and I want to thank them for their incredible support of our organization!
I would like to remind all of you that at our September meeting we will be discussing the changes to our bylaws, which were sent out to all members, and I hope to see you all at this meeting. I will also be updating you on the meeting Steve and I had with the Portsmouth Police at their motorcycle informational session.
Elections are also coming up and we should all be paying attention to what the candidates stand for. We as motorcyclists need to be concerned about our freedom of choice with helmet laws, the profiling issue and the ongoing noise complaints from towns. We should also be aware of the number of motorcycle fatalities this riding season and that is at 17.
I look forward to seeing all of you at our Aug party, Our Toy Run September 9th and our first meeting after summer September 16th.
I urge ALL of our members to ride safely and respectfully. Ride SMART!
Help End Motorcycle Profiling If you believe that motorcycle profiling by law enforcement agencies is wrong and should not be tolerated, please use the link below contact your representatives in Congress and ask them to support the Motorcycle Profiling Resolution (H.Res.318 and S.Res.154).
The Motorcycle Riders Foundation is working with the National Council of Clubs and the Motorcycle Profiling Project to call on our elected officials to end unconstitutional profiling of motorcyclists across our county. If your member of congress has signed on, you can still ask them to lean on their colleagues to support these resolutions.
The term "motorcycle profiling" means the practice of a law enforcement agent or agency using the fact that a person rides a motorcycle or wears motorcycle related paraphernalia as a factor in deciding to stop and question, take enforcement action, arrest, or search a person or vehicle with or without legal basis under the United States Constitution.
Your MRF has been hard at work in Washington, DC shoring up support for bipartisan and bicameral legislation to address motorcycle profiling. H.Res.318 and S.Res.154 are pending before Congress and in need of additional supporters in order to move forward in the legislative process.
Like any credible, national organization we make our case for more supporters with cold, hard facts. To get these facts, we work closely with the Motorcycle Profiling Project who is collecting data to demonstrate where profiling is occurring in the country and if it is on the rise.
To help make sure the data we present to our lawmakers is as accurate as possible, I am asking you to take a few moments and fill out the survey which can be accessed by clicking on the link below. Its completely anonymous and its only 13 questions. YOUR VOICE MAKES A DIFFERENCE!
On behalf of the entire MRF membership and its Board of Directors, thank you for your support on this issue.
The New Hampshire Motorcyclist Rights Organization (NHMRO) was founded in 1975 to fight the freedoms that were being systematically taken away.
NHMRO was incorporated as a non-profit organization, under the laws of the state of New Hampshire, and the internal revenue tax codes. Our sole purpose is to protect the rights of ALL motorcyclists to choose how they ride and to maintain and peserve their freedoms as riders.
NHMRO welcomes ANY and ALL motorcyclists to be part of our organization, so that we may all protect our rights and freedoms, regardless of motorcycle preference, lifestyle or when and how we ride. We encourage all motorcyclists to register and actively participate in helping to elect candidates that are supportive of our beliefs.
NHMRO supports the VOLUNTARY use of helmets, not mandatory laws.
WHEN YOU BECOME A SPONSOR YOUR CONTRIBUTION HELPS PROVIDE THE RESOURCES NEEDED TO FIGHT LEGISLATION AND PROTECT OUR "Right of Choice" and Freedoms. Your help funds our organization so that it may continue to "Educate" all motorcyclists.

The Motorcycle Profiling Project (MPP) is dedicated to the grassroots effort to pass laws addressing profiling and discrimination. The MPP is not intended to replace other organizations. Rather, the project is intended to coordinate and unify the different elements and organizations in each state towards this common goal, including the Confederations and Coalitions of Clubs, US Defenders, C.O.I.R., ABATE, MMA, NCOM, MRF, AMA and the many smaller MRO’s that exist around the country.
What do the Motorcycle Profiling Project’s services cost? The Motorcycle Profiling Project offers all of its services to the motorcycling community FREE of charge. If an individual or organization sees value in the project then contributions are highly appreciated. The project relies on these contributions as the sole means of covering expenses and compensation for work performed. The more support the project receives, the more support the project can provide the motorcycling community.As the movement to pass profiling laws accelerates, so has the time demands and workload. A project of this magnitude entails office expenses, travel, and time. So if you think the project is valuable, organize a benefit and make a contribution.Contributions go directly to the The Motorcycle Profiling Project. Contributions are NOT Tax deductible. Online contributions can be made at motorcycleprofilingproject.com or The Motorcycle Profiling Project on Facebook. Contract based consulting is also available if a particular state or community prefers a traditional and structured agreement.
David “Double D” Devereaux, a motorcycle rights activist from Washington State, and a leading advocate for laws addressing the issue of motorcycle profiling in America. Double D spearheaded the effort in Washington as spokesperson for the movement. Double D represents the Washington State COC and US Defenders, NCOM Legislative Task Force, US Defenders National Office, BOLT, and he is a member or supporter of ABATE, the MRF, and the AMA. Also offering assistance to the project are Jeff “Twitch” Burns (activist, public records, media expert and documentary filmmaker), Bill “Colt” Kaitz (activist that leads the Maryland US Defenders), Donnie “Mr. Breeze” Landsman (activist, independent advocate and legislative expert), along with many others.This unified effort resulted in the first law addressing motorcycle profiling in America. Importantly, Washington’s law passed through the legislature unanimously and the same legislation is receiving support in many other states. The Maryland COC/US Defenders and ABATE, working with the Project, unanimously passed profiling legislation through their Senate in 2015 and seems likely to pass the law through both chambers in 2016.
The Motorcycle Profiling Project is designed to help your state with every step involved in the process of passing a law addressing the issue of motorcycle profiling. Based on the experiences and best practices of the highly effective motorcycle rights movement in Washington State, the Project will assist in organizing and preparing your state to take effective grassroots action. The project provides organizational recommendations, policy support materials, and legislative strategy. This includes, but is not limited to:
