Let us, as riders, change the opinion of the Government and the Departments and show them that we will not be ignored. This Motorcycle Awareness Week make the government aware of our presence, not just the drivers on the road, but the people that administer your hard earned dollars taken through your CTP, the MCIS Levy, the LTCS Levy, the road tax, the state fuel tax, your rego fees. Show them you are there and deserve respect!!
