I was inspired by Becky Zarling, an MRF Assistant rep and a hardworking member of ABATE of Wisconsin. She pronounced in her newsletter that members of ABATE would attend every motorcycle event in Wisconsin, meet bikers and hand out fliers regarding legislation, MRF efforts and ABATE of Wisconsin activities. I was moved and motivated.
I asked Becky if I could create an important MRF flier about the biggest threat to our lifestyle. Could she add it to her leaflets and make it available to riders all over her state? She said yes, but there were some guidelines she must follow. First the flier had to be motorcycle centric and secondly, and of course, the wording must be approved by the MRF Board.
There you have it. So, I’m here to present my original version and the version edited by the CO2 Coalition. I hope one or the other is approved and we can move forward. Chris Callen, the boss of Cycle Source Magazine volunteered to handle the art layout. We will make these available to anyone who wants them free of charge. Bikernet.com is also sponsoring this

WHAT’S THE BIGGEST THREAT TO MOTORCYCLING AND OUR LIFESTYLE?
Harley CEO Jochen Zeitz tells us that after 120 years of being famous for its big gas-powered models, electrification is the logical next step.
SO, WHAT’S THE REAL DEAL, THE TRUE SCIENCE?
CARBON DIOXIDE CO2 IS NOT A POLLUTANT
More carbon dioxide will help everyone including future generations. CO2 is the essential food for land-based plants. The Earth’s biosphere has experienced a relative CO2 famine for millions of years, but the recent increase in CO2 levels with the use of Fossil Fuels has had a measurable, positive effect on plant life.
FUTURE CO2 INCREASES WILL BOOST FARM PRODUCTIVITY, IMPROVE DROUGHT RESISTANCE, BOLSTER FOOD SECURITY AND HELP CREATE A GREENER, LUSHER PLANET.
YOUR UPSWEPT PIPES HELP CHALLENGING NET ZERO WITH SCIENCE
Net Zero Plans are dangerous and unsupported by science. Six hundred million years of geological evidence shows that CO2 levels are near a recordlow and that atmospheric increases of the gas follow warming periods rather than precede them. This is enough to debunk the notion that CO2 is a dominant driver of global temperatures.
NET ZERO STANDS FOR ZERO FREEDOMS. WE MUST FIGHT BACK.
WE ARE FIGHTING BACK:
THE MRF: The Motorcycle Riders Foundation is fighting for individual rights to ride internal combustions engines into the future. We want YOU to be able to choose what you ride and when you ride.
We believe in freedom and the ability to ride free

The IMA: The Independent Motorcycle aftermarket was founded on the principle to protect independent dealers and custom bike builders’ rights to repair and modify motorcycles. The IMA membership is determined to keep us free and vibrant into the future.
We are fortunate to be aligned with the MRF, which fought to protect our culture for over 40 years, has excellent lobbying efforts in D.C and is connected to state organizations all over the country.

HERE’S THE EDITED TEXT FOR OUR MRF FREEDOM FLIER FROM THE CO2 COALITION—
Climate Alarmism’s Threat to a Cycling Lifestyle
Harley-Davidson CEO Jochen Zeitz tells us in the Jalopnik newsletter that after 120 years of producing big gas-powered cycles, electrification is the logical next step in a so-called age of decarbonization.
REALLY? What’s the real deal? The true science?
FACT: Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a necessity for all life, not a pollutant that threatens our existence.
For millions of years, Earth has been in a relative CO2 famine. However, since the Industrial
Revolution, increasing atmospheric CO2 has had a measurable, positive effect on plant life.
This reversal of CO2’s downward trend may very well prevent the eventual demise of all life from CO2 starvation, according to scientists at the CO2 Coalition.
YOUR UPSWEPT PIPES FERTILIZE THE AIR.
CO2 will continue to boost farm productivity, help feed a growing population and contribute to an overall greening of Earth that began nearly a century ago.
Challenging Net Zero With Science
Net Zero plans to eliminate emissions of CO2 are dangerous and unsupported by science. According to 600 million years of geological evidence, CO2 levels are near a record low and atmospheric increases of the gas follow warming periods rather than precede them. This is enough to debunk the notion that CO2 is a dominant driver of global temperatures.
TRUTH: Net Zero means zero freedoms.
FIGHTING BACK: The Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) stands for the freedom to choose internal combustion engines far into the future.
YOU should be able to decide what you ride and when you ride. We believe in liberty and the ability to ride free forever.
The Motorcycle Riders Foundation and the Independent Motorcycle Aftermarket are aligned in maximizing the freedom of riders and independent dealers and custom bike builders.
Having fought for more than 40 years to protect the cycling lifestyle, MRF has excellent lobbying efforts in D.C and is connected to state organizations all over the country.
