The current Law states:
ยง 1251. Riding on motorcycles. (a) A person operating a motorcycle
shall ride only upon the permanent and regular seat attached thereto,
and such operator shall not carry any other person nor shall any other
person ride on a motorcycle unless such motorcycle is designed to carry
more than one person, in which event a passenger may ride upon the
permanent and regular seat if designed for two persons, or upon another
seat firmly attached to the motorcycle at the rear or side of the
operator.
(b) A person shall ride upon a motorcycle only while sitting astride
the seat, facing forward, with one leg on each side of the motorcycle,
unless said person is seated in a sidecar affixed to said motorcycle.
(c) No person shall operate a motorcycle while carrying any package,
bundle or other article which prevents him from keeping both hands
on
the handlebars.
(d) No operator shall carry any person, nor shall any person ride, in
a position that will interfere with the operation or control of the
motorcycle or the view of the operator.

Monroe County ABATE Legislator Eric Carlston states:
" I have a call in to Senators Alesi, and Maziarz, and Nozzolio and spoke to Joe Robach about this today. I will follow up with surrounding chapter legislative coordinators to bring this to their attention and encourage them to contact their senators as well."

Greetings Folks,

I am happy to report to you that after having a chance to speak with Senator Alesi in his office on the afternoon of the Freedom Rally, that he has decided not to seek a cosponsor for this bill and will plan to let it die without submitting it again next session.

We had a productive discussion about this bill, and other motorcycle related issues which I look forward to working with the Senator on going forward.

Eric Carlston
Legislative Coordinator
