fukk the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008

In defiance of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 which prohibits the sale of youth motorcycles and ATVs deemed unhealthy for children under 12 due to suspected high-levels of lead content, motorcycle dealer Malcolm Smith will sell these banned vehicles as a sign of protest. As a sign of support, a group of small business people and high-profile motorcycle industry celebrities, including racers Jeff Ward and Jeremy McGrath, Glen Helen Raceway owner Bud Feldkamp, and motorsport design guru Troy Lee have all agreed to be on hand to purchase banned units for use by their own children and grandchildren.


What: Kids Love 2 Ride Protest

When: Thursday, March 19, 2009, 6:00am PST

Where: Malcolm Smith Motorsports
7599 Indiana Avenue, Riverside, CA 92504
