D36 ACTION ALERT – CA RED STICKER/COMPETITION BIKE REGULATIONS

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

SEND LETTER BEFORE APRIL 22 AT

Many of you have been following the California Air Resources Board (CARB) Proposed OHRV Regulatory Amendments to the Red Sticker Program. The official 45-day comment period started on March 8 and ends on April 22, 2019 at 5 p.m. There will be a CARB hearing on April 25 but the most important action you can take is to send in a comment, since a decision will most likely have been made before the board meets.

On April 10, D36 LAO submitted formal comments with a common sense “Competition Stakeholders Alternative.” D36 believes the CARB staff proposal falls short since it continues to rely on incomplete data sets or misguided understanding of what “competition” means to affected riders, land managers, rural economies, OHV dealerships, law enforcement of OHV policies, conservation/restoration efforts, trail ethic education programs, and organized OHV clubs and/or motorcycle competition sanctioning bodies.

Unfortunately, it also appears that CARB has failed to understand and capture the importance of riders having access to meaningful practice for competition events on private, local, state, and federal lands.

D36 believes the collective weight of the proposal could have an unintended and devastating impact on competition events, riders, and other related stakeholders including land management agencies in the State of California.

D36 respects the limited amount of time that most riders have available to attend meetings and write letters. But since this issue will shape the future of competition motorcycle events and practice riding for decades to come, the D36 LAO is asking you to send a short letter to CARB asking them to support
the D36 Competition Stakeholder proposal that seeks to meet the following CARB objectives listed below in bullet format.

  • Ensure law enforcement has the ability to access vehicle ownership and registration for competition off-road motorcycles through use of a 17 digit VIN. Additional benefit for financing and insuring competition labeled off-road only motorcycles.
  • Ensure competition off-road motorcycle owners fund OHV-related land management, restoration, law enforcement, vehicle registration, safety, education, and youth training programs.
  • Allow for the purchase, operation, and resale of competition labeled off-road motorcycles for use by racers at sanctioned “closed-course” or skill-based off-road motorcycle competition events (i.e. GP, Hare Scrambles, Enduros, Trials, etc.) and for practicing for participation at sanctioned off-road motorcycle competition events.
  • Safeguard the future of off-road motorcycle races/events and related race practicing.

Again, D36 is asking its members who want to preserve our access to competition motorcycles to take a couple of minutes to send in a simple comment letter to CARB asking them to adopt our alternative or some version thereof. Feel free to cite the bullet points above and/or add any specific comments about what competition means to your family and friends.

Send Letter using the CARB online comment form link
https://www.arb.ca.gov/lispub/comm/bcsubform.php?listname=ohrv2019&comm_period=A 

If you have time, also send your letter to the CARB Clerk at: cotb@arb.ca.gov
and send a copy to the D36 LAO at: Damador@cwo.com

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

As some of you already know, the OHMVR Division has been given a court order (due to ongoing litigation) to close off public access across the SRI creek crossing at Carnegie SVRA. Closure becomes effective on Monday 1-21-2019.

Areas impacted by closure.

  • The 4×4 Play Area.
  • The MX Track and gravel parking lot.
  • The Trials Area.

Access to Kiln Canyon and SRI Loop will be through Los Osos Trail.

The SVRA is working through the permitting process to restore public access to the affected areas. It is expected the OHVMR Division will provide an official update on this issue at the March 1, 2019 OHMVR Commission meeting.

AMA District 36 asks our members to honor the temporary closures and thanks you for your patience in the matter.  Be assured that District 36 will continue our work with the OHV Division on this all too important issue.  Stay tuned for future updates.

49er & 49er Family Enduros Postponed .

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

An announcement received by the Polka Dots MC…..

It’s with great sadness and frustration that we got the final word from the Forest Service that due to our rain gauge being over 1/2″ within 48hrs our 49er Enduro and our 49er Family enduros are POSTPONED!

As a club this hurts, but we are more bummed for you the rider especially knowing how perfect it will be , this is frustrating on many levels but ultimately we are responsible for the permit we signed which states .25″ within a 48hr prior to event.. it’s at double that now and they have had over an inch in the last 24 hrs..

We hope everyone gets out and recreates iN YOUR NATIONAL FORESTS ( what’s not burned up) in these awesome conditions..it’s open to the public , just not to us as an event!!
We will look for a date in late Oct for a make up!
