Lawmakers in the State of Michigan are proposing a move to designate the third Wednesday of every July as "Ride Your Motorcycle to Work Day."

The idea is that of State Rep. Richard LeBlanc, a Democrat. He along with 13 other Democrats are supporting the effort. LeBlanc claims to love motorcycles, A LOT...
"I've always loved motorcycles," said LeBlanc, who got his first one as a gift from his grandfather at age 9. He's owned roughly 130 over his lifetime, including five now-counting the new Harley-and gave his sons their first ones at ages 2 and 4.

LeBlanc is also one of the lawmakers who attempted to repeal the State's mandatory helmet law, though unsuccessfully.

An interesting twist was noted in the article above, regarding the effort to repeal the State's helmet law. Another lawmaker, State Rep. Barb Byrum, says that repealing the helmet law will attract more bikers to their state, and therefore, bring more tourist dollars in.

Considering the old adage of "Money changes everything", it seems like ABATE ought to stress this angle to lawmakers in all states.
