Rob Harris, Mad Bastard Scooter Rally
The Mad Bastard Scooter Rally is an 800 km (or so) scooter ride through some great Canadian scenery all the while collecting as many “mad” points that you can along the way, with the winner getting a brand new scooter to go home with! The location of the rally varies every time, but for 2011 it headed to the town of Barrie, just north of Toronto, Ontario. The Mad Bastard Rally is not just about completing the route within your allotted class time. Oh no, if you want to have a good crack at winning the main prize then you’re going to have to collect as many “mad” points along the way as you can. These points are awarded for various acts of madness, both set by the Rally staff and created by participants for being an imaginative (mad) bastard.
Don Emde, Publisher, Motorcycle Historian

Rob Dingman, CEO and President – American Motorcyclist Association
On Aug. 12, 2011 President Barack Obama signed into law H.R. 2715 that exempts youth ATVs and motorcycles from the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) of 2008, known as the lead law. The CPSIA, which went into effect on Feb. 10, 2009, banned the making, importing, distributing or selling of any product intended for children 12 and under which contains more than a specified amount of lead in any accessible part that might be ingested. Youth off-road vehicles were caught in the crossfire. The new law is a victory that is the result of nearly three years of intensive efforts by the AMA and its partner organization, the All-Terrain Vehicle Association (ATVA), their members and millions of advocates of responsible OHV recreation.
