    Senator Tester (D-MT) has introduced legislation, S. 608 that would stop the ban.:clap

    Sorry Hayduke if this is 205 but had not seen it yet. Weather needs to clear so I can stop wasting bandwidth....

    To all that may be interested - Got this PM from Thumper Talk:


    ***************
    I’m sure that you’re aware by now that the recently enacted Consumer Products Safety Commission Improvement Act has essentially banned the sale of motorcycles & atvs designed for ages 12 and under. This even includes selling parts for these bikes. We all know that kids just don’t lick, suck on or ingest parts of or entire motorcycles, so this law has virtually a zero % probability of protecting our kids and has a 100% probability of costing jobs and denying our kids their right to ride.
    There is amended legislation being proposed, but we’re far from out of the woods on this one. The CPSC does not have the ability to grant exceptions for these vehicles and the very congress the passed this bad piece of legislation is focused on other issues (bailing out the idiots that caused our financial mess) and even so, there is some pride to be swallowed to get an exception passed.
    ThumperTalk refuses to "hope" that our cries are heard, so we’re doing all we can to point our members in the right direction about how to get involved on this issue. One particular effort is a Rally on the Denver Capitol scheduled for 04/23 @ 11:30am, west steps. We need you to come and if you have kids, we need them too. We need hundreds of riders and their kids, all dressed in riding gear (bring helmets so the public associates the rally with motorcycles/atvs). Bring signage with appropriate messages for our legislators, the media and the public. The goal is to raise awareness that this senseless legislation is costing jobs, trampling on the rights of kids and parents and that reform is needed now.
    Even if you can’t come, please, tell all you know. We need our Colorado members to help us with recruiting. If a dozen of us show up, what message will that send?
    For an event flier and event updates, please follow this link:

    NOW IS THE TIME TO STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS, THE RIGHTS OF YOUR BROTHERS/SISTERS AND FOR THE KIDS! LET’S GET INVOLVED COLORADO!

    Senate scheduled to vote Friday May 1st

    and check for the "other" land grab introduced by NYC, that's right the fine representatives of New York http://www.amadirectlink.com/news/story.asp?id=816 Another fast track.

    What can one person do? Don't these people have more important things to do? Every stinking letter I sent got a automated response. Every one of them.

    I love this country, I served this country, but I tell ya I am frustrated to my core with the new "change". I'm not poking fingers at dems or repubs, and I better shut the fuck up before my rant gets me in trouble.

    That is all...
