This year Texas riders picked up proclamations in 122 cities & 10 counties across Texas.

Thanks to ALL who participated in '08 to make Texas a safer place to ride...one city at a time.

                     Proclamations  2008

Texas riders are making headlines by attending City Council meetings 
& getting newspaper articles published that ask drivers in their community to...
please watch for motorcycles & help save a life...

4-1-08   Special Message from TMRA : 
It was with great pleasure that TMRA accepted a signed copy of the Motorcycle Safety and Awareness Proclamation from our Governor Rick Perry. 
Butterfly has worked hard to organize various clubs and organizations toward obtaining proclamations around the state. Please join in the effort to get as many proclamations signed as we can. Every step towards increasing motorcycle awareness in our great state of Texas is a step toward saving any one of our lives. So please do everything you can to help ... it very well could be your life you are helping to save.
