cleaning up motorcycle communities image saving dirt bike parks

I am Deion Campbell, I run / race for a professional road race team. I am working on cleanining up the image of motorcycle riders. And I think the "dirt bikers" are in the same problem. When you hear dirt bikers or street bikers, everyone that doesn't know the sport thinks of the guys closing freeways down with side shows, beating up uber drivers or just running from the cops. Yes California has a big following of motorcycle rider however there is a bigger general population that's not educated to motorcycle laws and reason behind it. A lot of people get upset for motorcycle splitting lanes because they don't know it's when following the law it's safer for the riders as well as cuts down traffic. They don't see that, they only remember the people trying to split lanes at 80mph that over all scares them. I am trying to spread to word to get people to calm down on the streets. Jerry Brown is cutting the OHV park funding while giving California legislator raises. California legislator are the highest paid legislators in the nation yet they keep cutting funding from our riding communities. We are making it easy for them to do so with our behavior on streets. I will work to get the government to set up designated riding areas for the stunt riders so they can take the side shows to the stunt parks rather than the streets, while working on keeping the funding going for our dirt bike parks. It will reduce accidents and bring a better light to our community and help educate the general population.

Any supports that want to help the cause please feel free to contact me at. Any riders that read this should be interested in supporting this. This is your future, if we just let this happen Jerry Brown will make it almost impossible to ride in this state.

I just wrote this to respond to legislator staff and thought I'd share ..

OHV Access Campaign
Whenever I ride I talk to families and young people about OHV access and the future of our sport. Whenever I visit our legislators I talk about the health and beauty and conservation associated with our sport. I ask them if they recognize OHV as a legitimate sport. Our top competitors are outstanding althletes.

I always ask people to get involved with their elected representatives, or, at a minimum, pay attention to the access issues happening around them. AMA CORVA BARF...

OHV areas, well managed, are preserves for flora and fauna. The wild inhabitants don't mind if we are riding our bikes on a singletrack through their piece of heaven.

For the health of our young people, and of the wildlife, and the planet, We need to expand our riding areas, not close them. Carnegie and Clear Creek National Recreation Area are two local areas that need support now.
