Pennsylvania Bikers - BIKERS USA has revamped the Pennsylvania motorcycle events section to be used for Pennsylvania biker rights, other Pennsylvania biker resources and NASCAR Racing at Pocono International Raceway.
PA Motorcycle Events
Note: Occasionally an event is cancelled and we arenít notified, so please check with the event organizers before heading out.
For 40 years, bikers have complained about their helmets, but as of Halloween, 2007, there were only 20 official complaints going back to 1995 on file at the NHTSA. There are 500,000 helmets recalled and most are probably on our heads! Tell NHTSA to force helmet makers to make helmets they are willing to stand behind and are rated for 70 mph. If they made a better product, the government would not have to force people to wear these torture devices.
Make your motorcycle helmet complaint official by filing it online now!
Update: Within the first 48 hours of the Halloween 2007 Campaign, the number of official helmet complaints on file doubled compared to the last 12 years! Please tell all bikers they should be making their helmet complaints official. Itís easy!
