and spoke to the assembly.
The MCCA: The Michigan Court of Appeals has ruled

Your Insurance Policy: Be sure to compare your Declaration
Page with the matching section in your policy to be sure the policy covers what you think it covers. Be especially watchful for Uninsured and Underinsured coverage. Be aware that there is no such thing as “full

MRF News for February
The RPM Act has
been reintroduced by the House and Senate which overturned an EPA ruling. This Act would allow the public to modify cars and motorcycles into race machines and would also allow companies to
sell products for that reason.
Another bill has
been introduced that requires the National Academy of Sciences to provide an assessment on the implications of higher blends
of alcohol in our fuel. This is a major concern to older
cars, light trucks, motorcycles, boats, mowers, chainsaws, etc.
I have included
a copy of the Motorcycle Profiling Questionnaire below. If any of you feel you have been pulled over because you were profiled,
and not for a legitimate reason, please fill out one of these forms and get it back to either myself or Jinx. We will be taking these to Washington with us to show that profiling is a fact in Michigan.
