The WSMDA is still an active and aggressive organization which focuses on issues affecting the motorsports industry in Washington State. We work with motorsports dealers in the state and other groups to promote positive change in governmental policy concerning "Rider's Rights".

 

Down at the local bike stores, Harley's FX Super Glide and Honda's CB350 were in the showrooms, and Eldon Douglas decided to start what became the Washington Motorcycle Dealers Association - WSMDA.

The WSMDA had just formed as the Washington State Motorcyle Trade Association in response to this issue and the dialog began between dealers and the state to keep riding areas opened. Unfortunately, it has been an ongoing fight since then to keep trails open and to protect our funding.
Washington State Governor Christine Gregoire signs bill SBS2617 allowing ORV's to use connector roads without being street legal and licensed. Behind her from left to right are: Dave Hiatt, founder of CLOUT and member of WOHVA; Pat Halstead, WSMDA Lobbyist; and Jim Boltz, WSMDA director.
It was 1970. A house cost $25,000, gas was 36 cents a gallon, postage stamps were 8 cents, and you could see Dirty Harry in the theater for $1.50.
