Collection of historic Harleys featured at Indiana Harley-Davidson dealer

The Evansville Courier Press features a story on a collection of historic Harley-Davidson bikes on display at an Indiana Harley dealership.

The collection started with one bike owned by Bud Burnett, the founder of Bud's Harley-Davidson, and now has grown to over a dozen bikes, ranging from a 1912 Harley-Davidson with a single stroke engine to Harleys from the 1950s, 60s, and 70s.

This letter was sent to the originator of House Bill 1318 as well as the same originator who assisted in the amendment to said bill.

“....I write to request that Rep. Mays, now that her bill was signed by Governor Daniels on March 19th and will go into effect on July 1, 2008, that Rep. Mays now write and introduce a new bill that all motorcycle owners registrations that were affixed an additional $9.70 during the period of July 2007 and March 2008 be issued a credit either by issuing a reimbursement check or a credit issued upon registering their 2009 motorcycles. The $10.00 fee passed as a part of the biennial budget bill in 2007 by the General Assembly, singling out motorcyclist was "wrong" for Rep. Mays to do and should have never passed. It's clear to all that are aware of the amendment that was approved and signed by the Governor , this was an error and was to be corrected immediately. It's unfortunate that it took many voices for this to happen over six months post original passing of the House Bill. A lot of time, energy, and money has been wasted.
The majority (motorcyclists) affected by this House Bill being slipped in without a second thought was unreasonable by Rep. Mays just as a method of funding the Spinal Cord & Brain Trauma Research Fund. This fund is also currently funded by fines collected for speeding violators and other traffic offenses. This is an excellent and well deserved fund, however, to discriminate against motorcyclist was simply wrong and outrageous. The ethical and honorable step for Rep. Mays to take at this stage to completely clean up her error, is to introduce an additional amendment to House Bill 1381 and give motorcyclists the benefit of a $9.70 credit toward their 2009 registrations or reimburse everyone that paid the additional fees that should not have paid in the first place. Monies collection erroneously from the Indiana Tax Paying Citizens should not be considered free money. I look forward to a response from Rep. Mays. Cheryl Norris...”

I met with a representative of Senator Bayh’s office today and let us see what transpires from the meeting. I did cite that the original bill was discriminatory and violated the Indiana Tax Payor's Rights.
