Freedom Fighters,

Please consider participating in this important survey. It is important that we gain quantitative data regarding Rhode Island motorcyclists. I encourage everyone to participate; we need at least 500 people to take the survey to get good data. Please relay this info to a friend.

The Motorcycle Profiling Project has announced the launch of the National Motorcycling Profiling Survey aimed at collecting data that will assist motorcyclist rights advocates throughout the country by gathering the information that is needed to build an effective argument in the request for legislative relief in protecting all aspects of the motorcyclists lifestyle. NO PERSONAL DATA WILL BE COLLECTED.

***** Google National Motorcycle Profiling Survey 2015-2016 to link to the survey ***** It is being hosted on SurveyMonkey.
