Congratulations go out to Iron Trader News’ friend Keith R. Ball (the Boss of Bikernet.com) for recently being recognized by the Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) and given the 2014 Award of Excellence in Communication to the Aftermarket. He has been a member of the organization since the inception of Bikernet.com, 19 years ago.
The Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF), incorporated in 1987, is membership-based national motorcyclists’ rights organization headquartered in Washington, D.C. The MRF monitors and when necessary, attempts to sway federal legislation and regulatory action pertaining to street riders. The MRF concerns itself with what is going on in the arena of motorcycling safety education, training, licensing, and public awareness. The MRF provides members and state motorcyclists’ rights organizations with direction and information to protect motorcyclists’ rights and motorcycling. Their motto, “We’re in the Freedom Business,” underscores the hands-on work the group does on behalf of America’s motorcycle riders in Washington DC.
Keith’s contribution towards the MRF cause has been through constant communication to the V-Twin industry and engaging riding enthusiasts through his highly respected Bikernet.com, the industry’s first comprehensive online community serving American Bikers and the V-twin industry. His constant updates and calls for action from the industry and enthusiasts has helped stop bad regulations and laws impeding biker freedom.
Ball said, “The MRF does a helluva job. If we, as American bikers don’t take a stand, we’ll get run over. With everyone’s help, the MRF message is heard and ultimately we keep riding. My efforts are a small price to pay for my riding freedom, but I appreciate this recognition from the MRF, and encourage everyone to participate in protecting rider’s rights. Join the MRF or your local motorcycle rights group, today!”
