Taken from another forum....

Just so you know what the OHV & motorsports users are really up against in
Olympia!

We have been assured by Dave Helgeson who is a CLOUT member, that this email
thread below from Senator Adam Kline is authentic. We are trying to fulfill
Senator Kline's request for us to "circulate this to all motorized sports
enthusiasts."

Please do your part to assist us in fulfilling Senator Kline's request by
getting this to as many OHV/motorsports enthusiasts as you can.

Thank you,

CLOUT Admin

Dear Mr. Helgeson,

I signed on because I have been annoyed, endangered, and angered one too
many times by people riding motorized dirt-bikes and other off-road vehicles
that have no damn business anywhere. To me, this bill is narrow--it doesn't
include those "personal watercraft," seemingly jet-powered little missiles
whose only apparent purpose is to risk death and dismemberment for boaters
and swimmers, for the amusement of spoiled drunk teenagers.

Yes, I am sure there is the occasional responsible person who rides one of
these machines on land or water. And yes, like every human being I have
been pleasantly surprized to find my stereotypes broken. But why, why, why,
do folks insist on motorized "sports"? Those two words are an oxymoron.
There is nothing sporting--athletic, physically demanding--about riding any
machine anywhere. And it's a damned annoyance to folks who see the outdoors
as a place to go for quiet and solitude and self-exploration. I would be
happy to ban the use of the internal combustion engine off-road, by anyone
without a handicapped sticker, subject to a stiff fine. Maybe we could call
this an anti-obesity measure.

Please circulate this to all motorized sports enthusiasts, so they can
remember never to vote for me.

Adam Kline

MESSAGE:

Senator Kline,

I am curious to know why you would co-sponsor the most discriminatory,
anti-OHV Bill ever proposed?

SB 5544changes would creating maximum sound levels for riding
near any residence, regardless of where that residence is located or how it
is zoned. It would become illegal for my Family to ride our motorcylces and
quads
where they are "plainly audible" from in or adjacent to any residence. This
would even include residences that are on farm land, forest land or in an
industrial area.

One of the few riding area riding areas where it is still legal to ride in
Western Washington is Captial State Forest near Olympia. There are a few
parcels of private property located within the forest. This law, if passed,
would effectively shut this area down. Ditto for the nearby Straddle Line
ORV park.

What really strikes me as absurd about this proposal is race tracks like
Evergreen Speedway in Monroe could host auto races of all types, but any off
road events would be illegal.

In addition, this law would only apply to my dirtbike or quad. It would not

apply to other, more common sources of residential noise such as lawnmowers,

chainsaws, cars, trucks, boats, airplanes, stereos, playgrounds, ballfields,

etc. It is just plain discrimination against Off Highway Vehicle use and
has nothing to do
with keeping neighborhoods quiet.

Off Highway Vehicle recreation is a fun and growing family sport, it would
be nice to see sports that support families embraced by Olympia with more
open riding areas, instead of discriminated against.

I would hope that you drop your support of this legislation.

Senator Adam Cline is the epitomy of what is wrong with politicans in America and he is also an Oxygen Thief.
