PICKERINGTON, Ohio — Scores of youngsters shared their passion for riding off-highway motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) in the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) Kids Just Want to Ride! video contest, which ended April 24.

The videos feature young riders who point out the absurdity of a federal law that will effectively ban the sale of kid-sized bikes and ATVs at the end of 2011 due to the lead content of some parts. Each video features one or more kids promising not to “eat my motorcycle!”

“The AMA sponsored the Kids Just Want to Ride! video contest to show how real children, and real families, will suffer when the de facto ban on the sale of kids’ dirtbikes and ATVs goes into effect at the end of the year unless federal law is changed,” said Jessica Irving, AMA grassroots coordinator.

“Lawmakers need to see first-hand the faces of the children who will be hurt by the lead law — the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) of 2008,” Irving said. “That law must be changed with the passage of H.R. 412, the Kids Just Want to Ride Act.”
