Welcome to Rhode Island Motorcycle Association


President's message
We made it to some of the best riding riding so far this year. Summer is almost here, Laconia is starting and we are
all out and about riding and enjoying it all. Safety has always been a priority for us with the distracted drivers and
construction everywhere.
Memorial Day this year I was run off the road on I95 by a driver on purpose by him. I kept it up and made out ok,
Just a reminder to everyone be aware and be safe the life you save may be your own.
The legislative Calendar at the Statehouse has been quite full this year with bills that RIMA has been following and
testifying on. Thanks to Cam Bigelow our secretary for following all bills and sending in our testimony as needed for the Bills
that help us keep our freedoms here in RI. Look for his weekly updates on our face book page to stay current.
Without RIMA there would not be a unified voice for motorcycle riders at the State House. Thank you to all of our members past and present for your support. Together we make a difference for safety education and legislation in R.I. We look forward to another 50 years of success.
Our next Rima meeting is Monday 6/17/2024 at 7pm.
