A. No, the C.O.I.R. is an affiliation of independent motorcyclists who are prepared to do their part in helping to keep motorcycling a true American expression of freedom.

When a MRO or a “rights” association needs support to help implement grass roots strategies such as letter writing to legislators the C.O.I.R. will be called upon to assist with the manpower to help implement the “Action”. The C.O.I.R., working in concert with the M/Cs, riding associations, and local offices of Emergency Management, is also prepared to offer post disaster assistance to needy families and individuals if called upon by civil authorities to do so.

Q. Who are the US Defenders?
