Show Your Support and Stop the Ban

Back in December we posted an article about the ongoing fight to end the ban on youth ATV’s and motorcycles. After two years of efforts by dealers and enthusiast Congress has taken notice. Tomorrow the House of Representatives Subcommittee On Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade will have a hearing to review the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act, otherwise known as the “Lead law”. The MIC has submitted a letter to direct attention to the unintended ban on youth ATV’s and motorcycles that has resulted from the CPSIA lead content provision.

MIC issued a video prodding motorcyclists to show their support and make a push for Congress to amend the CPSIA and remove the ban permanently. With the buzz around the Dealer Expo in Indianapolis this weekend this is a perfect opportunity to come together and show your support. You can use the portal on www.stopthebannow.com to send a message to your Congress representative voicing your opinion.

Currently, Patrick splits his time between the eCommerce team and purchasing, finding new and exciting products for our website and catalog. When he’s not at his desk, he’s zigzagging across the country with J&P’s event crew. Patrick has an obsession with going fast on just about anything, a trait he shares with his 6-year-old son Race. You can usually find both of them wrenching in the garage or ripping through the fields on dirt bikes. Emma, his beautiful wife of 7-plus years, puts up with his antics and keeps his head screwed on because he certainly wouldn’t be able to find it without her.
