U.S. Rep. Tim Griffin (R-Ark.), co-chair of the Congressional Motorcycle Caucus (CMC), highlighted safe and responsible motorcycle and off-highway vehicle safety at AIMExpo in Orlando.
“I’ve been into motorcycles and off-roading my entire life, so it was great to visit with other enthusiasts, walk the show floor and see the innovative ways expo participants are encouraging safety,” Griffin said. “I’m glad I had the opportunity to talk with key industry leaders, and I’ll be taking their insights back to Washington as I continue to promote motorcycle and off-highway vehicle safety and awareness.”
MIC director of federal affairs, Duane Taylor, said, “We are thrilled that Representative Griffin took the time to come to Orlando and participate in AIMExpo. He is a true champion for our industry and his passion for our sport is obvious. His leadership on key safety, access and other powersports-related issues is very much appreciated and he continues to be a powerful and effective advocate for the powersports community.”
Griffin represents the Second Congressional District of Arkansas. He is also a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army Reserve and a former small business owner. He lives in Little Rock with his wife and their two children. Earlier this year, he hosted a motocross event he called “Ridin’ With Your Rep,” which allowed constituents to share their views on issues affecting the sport.
The Congressional Motorcycle Caucus is comprised of members of Congress from both sides of the aisle who are committed to advancing motorcycling and improving the safety of motorcyclists. It also helps promote Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month and Ride to Work Day.
