Raleigh Rights Rally - Feb 25, 2006

The second annual Raleigh Rights Rally was held on Saturday, February 25th. The purpose of this rally was to raise awareness of the Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) and the work that the MRF does on behalf America's motorcyclists. Riders from the Greater Raleigh chapter of the SCRC, the CMA, the Raleigh CBA, and the Chatham CBA attended along with several local independent riders. 33 riders attended the run and donated $10 each. The riders made a Freedom Fighter donation to the MRF in the amount of $330. One rider also joined the MRF as new member. We would like to welcome Frank Pennuci to the MRF. Frank is the First Officer of the Greater Raleigh SCRC. Between the Freedom Fighter donation and Frank's membership, Raleigh area riders donated $355 to the MRF.

The ride started at Scooters in Raleigh and ended at Highbeams in Garner. A big thank you goes out to the team at Scooters and Twin Specialties for supporting the ride and also to the ladies of Highbeams for their hospitality.

The MRF is a federal level Motorcyclists Rights Organization (MRO). They have an office and full-time lobbyist in Washington, DC and they have been fighting for our rights in our nation's capital for over twenty years. They work on behalf of the 6.6 million motorcycle owners in America. If you are not an MRF member please consider joining. Just joining is the most important thing you can do. Joining will help the MRF continue to fight for federal funding for road improvements, promote motorcycle safety and awareness, and continue to lobby for the elimination of all forms of biker discrimination.
