TMRA2 Update 23rd Anniversary and Membership Meeting
TMRA2 had our 23rd annual
membership meeting at Hardtail’s outside of Austin on June 28th. With
four District Advisor’s, three officer’s attending, and approximately
25 members the future of TMRA2 was discussed in detail. We had a prayer
by Tom Zimmer, the pledge, treasurer’s report, then discussion’s.
association has had a long 23 year run passing many motorcycle laws and
killing many of the bad bills for the bikers of Texas. However, since
Sputnik passed it has been increasingly hard to keep the association
going both with officers to help out and financially. It was discussed
that our Chairman is leaving for Europe, and the Secretary / Treasurer
is working two other jobs at 60 hours a week leaving very little time
to be at the capitol this session. I explained that I do not want to
commit to going to the capitol when I am working two jobs and know from
past experience that working the capitol is a full time job.
chapters are also reporting low attendance and several of our District
Advisors are working long hours as well. It was decided and voted on by
both the District Advisor’s (Adam, Jack, Sandra, Jason), Officer’s
(Jerry, Myself, and Paul), and the membership that TMRA2 will be
closing our political door’s by the end of 2014 due to lack of
interest, leadership, and finances.
have been involved in a lot of good legislation passed just in the last
four years that Sputnik has been gone. We carried the torch as long as
we could and worked closely with the other rights groups in Texas who
will now work the capitol in this upcoming session.
also voted that each chapter needs to close their bank accounts, send
the remaining funds with proof the accounts are closed to the state
office asap so we can finish paying our debts. As soon as all the
accounts are closed, we can tell the state of Texas we are no longer
would like to thank all the TMRA2 Warriors who made this association
work, many thanks to the TMRA2 Legislative Task Forces who worked the
capitol with Sputnik and kicked some serious ass. To all of our
financial supporters and chapters who did fundraisers for the cause. To
all the members and supporter members, especially the ones who hung in
there after we lost our great leader allowing us to continue.
good news was, at the meeting, Paul Landers reported that the US
Defender’s, COC, and the COIR will continue the legacy of walking and
talking at the capitol and I have faith in them that they will succeed.
They are working on several new bills that will be introduced. You can

want everyone to know, Sputnik would be proud of us for going out as
the best motorcycle rights organization in the country, for preserving
his legacy, and for supporting the new groups who are working at the
capitol in the future May the motorcycle rights work always continue
one way or another. That’s the important part of all this, that we keep
fighting and never give up.
God Bless the great state of Texas.
