Took this off another board, seems to be an important issue for anyone who rides.

This is a very important issue for motorcyclists across the country. We have been set up for a screwing by one of our "Administrations" which was clearly a result of undo influence
from the Insurance Lobby. Your Group Health Care Insurance provider cannot deny you coverage because you ride BUT they can refuse to pay any benefit claim if you are injured in an accident on your bike.
We have an opportunity to correct this injustice RIGHT NOW. There are two bills in Congress (House and Senate versions) to close this loophole. Follow the directions and let your guys in Washington know that there is broad support among their constituents to pass this legislation.

Go to http://www.AMADIRECTLINK.COM

In the left column, top item, click on AMA RAPID RESPONSE CENTER

The next screen will show (4) four ACTION ALERTS. Click on the one for the HOUSE INTRODUCES HEALTH INSURANCE BILL FOR MOTORCYCLISTS.

Use the scroll down bar immediately adjacent to the text and fill in your name and address information. Fill in your name in the box labeled "Your Closing:".

Finally, click on the "Send Message" box. This will go to the
Congressman in your District. It knows who he (she) is from your
address.

Go back to the ACTION ALERTS screen and repeat the process for the one titled "SENATE INTRODUCES HEALTH INSURANCE BILL FOR MOTORCYCLISTS". This will go to your Senators.

Note that there are instructions for editing the AMA text if you care to change anything or add your own comments. If you choose to do so, keep it clean and polite.

Done. Just more ammo for me to hate insurance companies. If One Nationwide here in Columbus comes down, you don't know me. :mad:

BTW, before somebody torches me, that's a joke people. I'd let it be evacuated first.

Done...and for the record, the congressional offices weigh delivered snail-mail more heavily than electronic contact or phone calls from constituents...print out and pony up for a stinkin' stamp if you haven't already emailed...
