#05NR23 - Motorcycle Riders Foundation Opens Seven State Information Line

The Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) joins the nation in shock at the devastation and tragedy left in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. The MRF also encourages all motorcyclists to donate to the relief organization of their choice and to assist in relief efforts.

To assist any motorcyclist who may want to post information, or seek information, whether it be a call for help, a search for someone, or to let others know where they are, the MRF will be opening the Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Georgia, Texas and Tennessee State pages on the MRF website at http://www.mrf.org. Any motorcyclist wishing to post may do so. Please send all posts to JD DePaolantonio, MRF Director of Communications at jd@mrf.org. Please indicate the state or states where the post should appear. For any rider without computer access wishing to get information to the MRF States Page, please call the MRF Washington, D.C. Office at 202-546-0983. The MRF will ensure communications are posted. To access the MRF State Pages from http://www.mrf.org, click States MRO Legislation on the left column. Information will begin being posted tomorrow and will be available within hours of receipt.
