Support Motorcycles OK. Promoting awareness and safety that keeps those you love safer on the roads. Motorcycles OK advocates the motorcycle benefits of lower emissions, less fuel, reduced traffic congestion, and reduced use of cars.

MOTORCYCLES OK advocates the benefits for society of motorcycling in British Columbia. You can be part of the evolution. 

As the mobility landscape changes with density, growth, congestion, enviromental and personal transportation choices, the appeal of motorcycles will grow. Motorcycles OK is designed to drive public awareness for motorcycle safety, education, as well as the transportation and environmental benefits. The fact they are a cool way to get around the world is not forgotten either!

How it is here. Motorcycles in North America are often seen as a lifestyle choice, an indulgence by some, and usually lumped in with “powersports”. Most jurisdictions relegate motorcycle issues to the traffic safety sector management. They are typically not aligned with the best practices of other countries .

In the rest of the world. Cities worldwide actively incentivize the use of “motorcycles as a solution” to alleviate traffic congestion, parking and help reduce emissions. They frequently offer consumer benefits and incentives similar to those enjoyed by bicycles and electric vehicles.

The opportunity here? Motorcycles OK is an advocacy initiative working to promote  motorcycles  as a “ solution partner” for transportation and environmental sustainability, at all levels of government.

Using media channels, Motorcycles OK works with partners to foster conversations with stakeholders and the public around motorcycle safety, education and awareness, as well as promoting incentives for motorcycles,  based their smaller footprint, reduced traffic congestion, lower emissions, lifestyle benefits, and higher fuel economy.

Today's community planners are inceasingly recognizing that motorcycles are an important solution. They complement bicycles and reduce the use of automobiles

Support a great idea.  Our goal is to raise $20,000 to increase the daily impact of Motorcycles OK and stage a world-class transportation and environmental event, “Motorcycles as a Solution” Symposium.

Symposium date placeholder

The goal of the symposium is to increase stakeholder awareness for motorcycles as a smart transportation and environmental choice .

This special embroidered Sunice jacket is made of the latest high performance fabrics. It is an outstanding signature piece to host the Motorcycles OK monogram. The women's version features the monogram on the shoulder; the men's on the nape of the neck below the collar. The lightweight technical fabric was chosen, with the help of Sunice, for its unique properties. Comfortable and thin, yet breathable and warm, It had to be light enough to fit in a saddlebag or even under a heavier jacket. It also needed an appeal for non riding occasions and non motorcyclists. Its slim profile and colour makes it suitable for any occasion, from social outings to business casual meetings.

It is truly a powerful jacket to wear!

North American sizing and fit.

Includes a membership and the cool sticker - a $20 value.
