PROTECT YOUR RIGHT TO RIDE!
                       
 
ATTEND THE 2007 OFFHIGHWAY VEHICLE RALLY ON THE CAPITOL STEPS
 
MARCH 9, 2007      STARTING AT NOON
 
 
The Washington State Legislature is currently considering changing the offroad vehicle noise laws.
 
The proposed changes would include creating maximum sound levels for riding near any residence, regardless of where that residence is located or how it is zoned.  It would become illegal to ride if your bike is either “plainly audible” or exceeds 45 decibels from inside of, or with 10 feet of any residence.  This would even include residences that are on farm land, forest land or in an industrial area.  It would also be illegal to ride if your bike exceeds 55 decibels at the property line.
 
These new limits would only apply to your dirtbike or quad.  It would not apply to other, more common sources of residential noise such as lawnmowers, chainsaws, cars, trucks, boats, airplanes, stereos, playgrounds, ballfields, etc.  It is just plain discrimination against ORV use and has nothing to do with keeping neighborhoods quiet.
 
If this becomes law, forget about riding any track in the State of Washington.  Also, you can count on the vast majority of riding areas shutting down.
 
Join us at the capitol and let your elected representatives know that you’re not going to just stand by and let them eliminate our sport!
 
Do not expect the other guy to go to the rally.  You are the one to stand up and protect your investment in machines and your freedom to use them.
 
IF NOT YOU, WHO?  IF NOT NOW, WHEN?
