Copper Classic 2019 – Thank You TRS

TRS,

This we be a very short message. This is just a quick note to say thanks to all who were able to support the 2019 Copper Classic. We just hosted what some say is the best Copper Classic ever! You should be proud to be part of not just this event but also the Trail Riders of Southern Arizona. I hope you can make Tuesday’s club meeting. We will spend the meeting time focused on recapturing our favorite moments of the event.

News To Use

PHOENIX – H.B. 2246 would require all motorcyclists, passengers and ATV operators to wear a helmet at all times while operating the vehicle. The bill also would require protective glasses, goggles or a transparent face shield, unless the vehicle is equipped with a windscreen. Riders and passengers can opt out of the requirement by paying a fee when registering their vehicles. Revenue from the fee would be split between the Arizona Highway User Revenue fund ($200) and the Spinal and Head Injuries Trust Fund ($300).

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Consumer Protection and Fuel Transparency Act of 2019 (H.R. 1024) is bipartisan legislation that would require the EPA to revise the labeling requirements for pumps that dispense E15 and conduct a consumer education campaign to inform the public about the risks of improper use of E15 and the vehicles and equipment that are prohibited from using E15. The current E15 label doesn’t mention motorcycles specifically. The new label would call out motorcycles, ATVs, boats, lawnmowers, chainsaws and snowmobiles with pictograms of these vehicles and equipment specifically prohibited from using E15. Also included in this legislation are provisions specific to blender pumps that would require warnings about residual high-ethanol-content blends left in the fueling hose from the previous customer. U.S. Reps. Austin Scott (R-Ga.) and Lois Frankel (D-Fla.) reintroduced the bill.
