In recognition of Motorcycle Awareness Month, the Congressional Motorcycle Caucus is hosting a Virtual Reality Riding Experience to coincide with the Motorcycle Riders Foundation Fly-In on May 15. The VR experience lasts about 3 minutes and will allow participants to experience different riding scenarios such as group riding, lane filtering and night riding. Help spread the word and send your Member of Congress an invitation to attend!
Even if you are not attending Bikers Inside the Beltway, you should encourage your Senators and Congressmen to come! This is positive exposure for all motorcyclists and sends a positive message as the riding season gets underway.
Please consider sending the invitation by clicking on the link below and asking your friends to do the same!
