Breaking News from the MRF....

 Hey Reps and Board: After eleven and half years the time has come for me to step down. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at the MRF. It has been a barrel of fun taking on our big, bloated government and putting them in their place. We have taken on the EPA and won, NHTSA and won, we have taken on the CPSC, DOT, NTSB, CDC, the House of Representatives, the Senate and even the White House and won. Not to mention all of the silly institutions, like the insurance industry, that have tried to kill motorcycling, that we have beaten back over the years. Without your help and support none of this would have been possible, thank you.

A lot of people have asked me “what lobby firm are you going to”? The answer is not where I am going, its here I am not going. I am going to be living out of a van down by the river. Sort of.  The only thing for sure about my next move is that I am firmly committed to one year minimum. I am huge fan of the National Park System. When I found out recently that were 408 parks and realizing that I have only seen a fraction, I freaked. So, I am taking an 35 foot RV across the country with my girl and my dog. We might make it back to DC, might not. How can I know where I want to live if I have not seen it all? We love our jobs, home and friends but sometimes you need to go an adventure, throw caution to wind and live, and that and that alone is why I am vacating my post.

I gave my notice one week ago to Kirk. I know that one week is not a lot of notice, but I hope you will understand. This trip is something that my soul tells me I must do. I am changing the trajectory of my life and nothing can stand in the way. Conquering Washington DC has been a blast and I truly thank every MRF Member and Supporter for the opportunity of a lifetime. Please keep in touch or even better find us on the road. Reach out to me at Jeffrey_Hennie@yahoo.com or find me on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook (search for jeffrey hennie) Or follow along on my new blog. Its not up and running yet but will be soon. In the meantime bookmark www.renegades.com
Let the adventure begin. We pull out of DC on 11-1-15
