WE NEED YOU!
We helped introduce SB516 a bill that will prohibit motorcycle only checkpoints. The local authorities are really pushing for this and we need to show them that this is UNACCEPTABLE!
We are awaiting a hearing date and will post it once we know. We will need EVEYONE that can attend this hearing to please come to the State House and show your support of this bill. You do not need to speak but having a presence and signing the card that says your are for this bill goes a long way. This is a way of profiling motorcyclists help us make sure that this bill goes through!
We will keep everyone up to date on this.
NHMRO (New Hampshire Motorcyclists" Rights Organization) had two issues this year that we dealt with legislatively, a handle bar height bill (SB-27) and a binnial motorcycle inspection bill (HB-553). We were able to get the handle bar height law changed removing the height restriction and we defeated the biennial motorcycle inspection bill.
New Hampshire is currently the only state without a mandatory seatbelt law for adults, but we are going to be faced with fighting that this year as a bill for mandatory seatbelt use for all vehicle occupants has been pre-filed (2018 HB-1259).
In 2011 we fought for and passed legislation (HB-148) that prohibits the acceptance of federal funding for motorcycle only roadside checkpoints. Unfortunately, this legislation did not prohibit the use of state and local funds, so we were able to get a Senator to introduce a bill that would prohibit the enforcement of motorcycle noise level restrictions at motorcycle- only roadside checkpoints.
We in New Hampshire take our riding very seriously and enjoy the freedom that we have fought so hard to keep.
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.

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:
