The Motorcycle Profiling Project is dedicated to the grassroots effort to pass laws addressing profiling and discrimination across America.

What is Motorcycle Profiling
Motorcycle profiling means the illegal use of the fact that a person rides a motorcycle or wears motorcycle-related paraphernalia as a factor in deciding to stop and question, take enforcement action, arrest, or search a person or vehicle, with or without a legal basis under the State or US Constitution.

Why is Motorcycle Profiling Illegal? An individual's chosen form of expression or organizational affiliations are protected by the 1st Amendment. Also, the right of a class of people to be free from discriminatory law enforcement practices are guaranteed by the 14th Amendment's Equal Protection Clause.
Why is Motorcycle Profiling An Important Issue? There are 10 million registered motorcyclists in America representing all walks of life. This includes doctors, lawyers, business owners, military veterans, blue collar workers, and even state legislators. Unfortunately, the overly-broad outlaw biker stereotype embraced by many law enforcement officers results in selective enforcement of the law and discriminatory based traffic stops targeting a sizable portion of the motorcycling community.
