Youth Motorcycles Banned

This is quite a bit off the hunting topic, but I'm sure that a number of you guys and gals either own a motorcycle, ATV, minibike or you have one for your children to ride.

I thought I would ask for your help. Please visit the following web sites read up on the issue and then hopefully sign the petitions that they have there in support of allowing 12 old and under youth to ride/race motorcycles.

Your government with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission have seen fit to ban the sales and use of motorcycles intended for youth aged 12 and under. Supposedly because of the lead content in the motorcycle parts. I'm sure you have seen a lot of out kids sitting there just chewing away on an ATV or motorcycle.

I would appreciate it if you would at least check it out and sign the petitions if possible.

This ban also covers parts for all bikes that are 90cc and below, so even if you had one for your own use to ride around your own property you will not be able to buy parts for it or even legally sell it.

Your Government at Work Helping You Again.

Thanks for your time and I hope you will help.

Ever Wonder ?

i got to say if i ever hear the expression"if it saves just one life it'll be worth it" im gonna puke.people should be allowed to make their own decisions and deal with the consequences of those decisions

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
