May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month




 It's that time of the year for our annual Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month campaign.

We appreciate your continued support in this endeavor to keep the public aware of motorcyclists on the road.

We are motorcyclists from all walks of life. Our goals are to insure safety and freedom of our public roads,

promote motorcycling in general and to promote motorcycle safety awareness to the general public.

One of the ways to do this is by getting May declared as Motorcycle Awareness Month by Proclamation.


 My name is Your name here and I represent the Your club name here. 

I would like to propose that the Mayor of the City oYour city name here proclaim May 2016 Motorcycle Safety Awareness

Month and to present a Proclamation to local riders at a City Council meeting.We also respectfully request to be

 At the conclusion of the presentation of the Proclamation, we would also like to get a photo for the local media

so that we can get our message to watch for motorcycles out to even more drivers/residents in our communities.



 Your club name here, would like to respectfully request that our club be welcome to pick up
