As we move closer to memorial day on Monday May 31 2021 Rima will honor our Veterans both past and present with our annual run to the Rhode Island Veterans cemetery on Memorial day. We will be meeting at exit 15 off of Interstate 95 at Motel 6 across from Dunkin Doughnuts. We will be leaving promptly at 12:30 to start the run. All are welcome to join us for this all important tribute for our Veterans.
Remember always that all gave some but some gave all.
As the restrictions are being lifted we can all look forward to more of a normal lifestyle and more events that we can all ride to and enjoy. It has been a long time coming for all of us.
With my bike rebuilt over the winter the break in period has been a pleasure, just to be out and riding again. I look forward to seeing every one at the events that are sure to start soon. Just check with the host of any event to make sure of the details before you go.
A special thanks to our Secretary Cam Bigelow who has been top of the agenda for existing legislation. Having reviewed over 2000 bills and still counting. As far as the Bills that were pending including the helmet bill, they are all on hold in the committees that they were in at this time. If any come back out we will inform everyone on our face book page what will need to be done
If you would like to be part of our organization and have a say in your rights and freedoms in Rhode Island just join us. By filling out the application on this sight. Encourage your friends and family to join, without you Rima would not be able to continue the fight for our freedoms. Thank you one and all.
At this time the next Rima meeting will be set for 5/18/2021 @ 7pm. 29 Armento street Johnston RI. Should we have to cancel I will post before the meeting.

Ride Safe- Ride Free

Legislative Message

Thank you to everyone that sent in to the committees either for or against the Bills that Rima had an interest in. At this time all of the Bills are being held in committees with no movement yet towards coming out for a vote. Our secretary Cam Bigelow is on top of all legislation both old and new. He is doing a great job keeping up even though there were over 2000 bills that were introduced. Yes he looked at 2000 bills so far not a typo.
Should any bills that are presented need our attention old or new, we will ask for your help when the time comes. Until then we can only push for May as motorcycle awareness Month in Rhode Island. Along with the road sign messages to remind drivers that our safety is primary.
Paul Bond
President
