MRAWA Mission Statement
The Motorcycle Riders Association of Western Australia inc. is a not for profit organization that has existed in Western Australia for over 28 years.
The MRAWA is constantly working with Federal, State and local government Ministers and their Departments and agencies as well as other motorcycle organizations in all other Australian States with aims similar to ours on a ongoing commitment to provide a safer road environment, improved rider training and sensible motorcycle related legislation on behalf of all motorcycle and scooter riders in Western Australia.
LET THOSE WHO RIDE DECIDE
- To Strive for Fair and Sensible Legislation
We as citizens need laws that will protect and preserve our right to choose, without being compelled by legislation to conform by those who have different opinions toward our lifestyle. The MRAWA is apolitical and actively pursues the rights of ALL motorcyclists by lobbying ALL political parties.
- Improve Road Safety
All road users must develop a greater awareness for motorcyclists. The MRAWA supports Rider Training Programs, and all road user training programs, and encourages all motorcyclists to participate. The MRAWA firmly believes Education not Legislation Saves Lives.
- Improve the Image of Motorcycling
We aim to promote the positive aspects of Motorcycling to the public. As an Association, the MRAWA provides events such as the Annual Motorcycle Awareness Ride and Memorial Ride, and supports the activities of other motorcycle organisations such as the Bikers Charity Ride and other rides for positive causes.
- To Promote Motorcycling
Motorcycles are a viable transport alternative. Motorcycles generate less pollution, use less fuel and require less parking space in public areas. Sporting activities such as off-road racing is exciting for both riders and spectators. The motorcycle lifestyle with its sense of community and camaraderie can offer a change of pace with current lifestyle trends.
